Busch NA is a fully-fermented, non-alcohol version of Busch beer that offers a smooth, full-bodied, malty flavor. All of Anheuser-Busch’s non-alcohol products are brewed, fermented and aged to full maturity. The alcohol is then removed through the use of low-temperature, low-pressure distillation. This extremely gentle process allows the alcohol to be removed without heating or cooking the beer, which retains the full, rich and delicate flavor and balance of our non-alcohol brews.

12 oz can pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is the same but more like water.

3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2017
From can stamped 17199 (July 18, 2017). Light-bodied and nearly flavorless, neutral saccharine/toasted grain effects, and enjoyably frothy for its size. Surprisingly no fault or flaw, even as it warms. Like moderately bitter off-dry mineral water, faint corn syrup, almost a touch of plastic/malt liquor in the nose.

12 oz can. Pours clear pale yellow with a bubbly white head and poor retention. No lacing. High carbonation. Sweet beerish watery flavor with a strange tinny background taste. Marginally better than water. I love Busch Light, but this isn’t close.

Cavie (4874) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Can. Brilliantly clear light straw. White foamy head. Aroma is light grain, not much else. Flavor is smooth, faint grain, slight corn notes. Finishes crisp. Very similar to Busch Light.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of wet cardboard. Clear medium amber, off-white head that quickly sinks to thr rim, waves of lace. Odd taste: light malt that grows into sweet corn. No bittering. Simple, obviously not an alcoholic beverage. Pretty low end.

Can into pils glass, bubbly clear pale golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of cardboard and faint grain. Taste adds corny sweetness. Light body, heavy-moderate carbonation, crisp with clean finish. No idea how fresh this is, if that makes much of a difference.

Can. It had a semi sweet corn flavor with little nose. It was ice cold at first bit as it warmed it got a little funky.

Not bad for a non alcoholic beer. Hard to rate this but it has a decent lager flavor. There’s a lot worse out there. Nice carbonation.

12oz can, thanks to chudwick. Clear orange color. White head fizzes loudly. Fades to a minimal amount quickly, fading to nothing eventually. Wet bread flavor, maybe some corn. Not nearly as much of the offensive burnt popcorn flavor I was getting from other NAs that I recently tried. Maybe the can format has something to do with that? Another win for cans... Other than that, the flavor is pretty minimal. Carbonated water, with a touch of beer flavor. I much prefer this to the other NAs though because it isn’t offending me, just very very plain. Stronger, kind of sharp forced carbonation impedes drinkability unfortunately. Light body. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter bite, touch of acidic. Overall, one of the better macro NAs I’ve had so far, but that’s not saying much.

"Pretty sure I had this plenty o times in my younger years. Gets the job done as a lawnmower beer, but that’s about it. Too thin and watery (and flavorless) to make any kind of mark."

Chudwick (3423) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - SEP 8, 2014
12oz can into a tall kitchen glass - all of the .5 ratings must have been made by blind folks or more realistically by heavily biased posers. Nose is floral grain. Sip adds light caramel and hints of citrus. Light body as is expected. balanced taste but barely pronounced. Way better than the Old Milwaukee NA. Very clean overall though the nose is a little off-putting.
