Gosh - that was one of the easiest votes I've ever casted. I wish the ballot in Cook County (Chicago) was as simple.

I'll drink wine coolers or Zima before I drink Budweiser again.

It's good when you're 15 and you don't know any better.

Same category as Coors, Olympia, Miller and Pabst.

Same category, perhaps, but Pabst still puts the rest to shame (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

OK, I probably shouldn't have lumped Pabst in there... to tell you the truth, I don't remember ever drinking it, although I probably did at one point.

Hamm's was also a favorite during the teen years.

There are far worse beers than Bud. Rogue Dead Guy Ale, for instance.

There may not be any good flavor in a bottle of bud, but then there isn't much flavor either way.

Not saying that I like Bud, but instead of tearing others down, why not just build up your favorite breweries? So negative. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/sad.gif)

What fun is that?

Budweiser needs to be torn down. It's had more success for less reason than any other product on planet earth. It's the Lowest Common Denominator. It has all of the requisite ingredients for beer, but no effort put into quality.

Obviously they're doing something right commercially - I mean, they sell it by the boatload. But that doesn't mean it's any good.

Budweiser is the Chevrolet Chevette of beers - it does what it has to, but you're embarassed to be seen with it.

We conducted and experiment with Budwieser. Take a bottle of Bud, heat it to 100 degrees, cool it down, reheat, recool, do this 5 times. Open bottle, take a drink, IT STILL TASTE LIKE SHIT.

haha. lol... Zima. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/biggrin.gif)


None of my friends have discovered great tasting beer, microbrew let alone homebrew... so unless I tote my homebrew with me everywhere, i get stuck with the worst of worst.... keystone light, bud light, you name it, they drink it.

A vehicle for alcohol, couldn't agree more - my friends ARE the 80% of the market.


I'll quitely stick to my homebrew, until they are ready to discover what they are missing out on ;-)

I think this beer serves its purpose:

That is to reach the masses at a fairly cheap price. I have discovered as I am a recent homebrew snob convert, that this beer looks like pee and taste like it also. I will say this in its favor.

I gave it a 4 because if I had to choose a cheap tasteless beer over water then I would gladely drink Bud all day long second to an even cheaper but better tasting Lone Star.

Try a side by side taste test and you will see.

I bought a case of Budweiser last summer as a cooking beer -- I wanted something to boil brats in and I didn't want to waste homebrew on that. I also needed some cans for beer can chicken.
I did the Budweiser brewery tour in St. Louis last Friday. The Reinheitsgebot was completely ignored when the tour guide stressed the five ingredients of Bud. I wondered if I'd find anything to drink at the end of the tour. But they had Bare Knuckle Stout on tap, very dark, nitrogen, I was quite pleased to have something drinkable at the end of the tour. The tour itself was worthless, but this Stout is worth sampling.

For some reason, the stuff gives me a headache...

I think Dead Guy is light years beyond this stuff. HB, Dead Guy, and Dogfish Head are my rotation for now....

Tried it once. Keyword ONCE. Most drink this or coors light or some other massed produced domestic beer everyday. Life is too good to drink shit beer. I on the other hand drink Firestone Double Barrel Ale everyday. On special occasions or to treat myself I prefer Chimay Grand Reserve. But to each his/her own.

Absolute swill. I am sometimes embarrassed to partake in the drinking society of American because of poor examples like this. Why do so many people feel the need to consume a beverage which lacks any taste, character, or color? It's cheap and has booze in it...my suggestion for these folks is to buy a 40 oz...chug it and then keep drinking the bi-product which comes out of you since it will taste the same...maybe better if you had asparagus for dinner. As others have said before, if you want to get trashed and want 0 taste go buy a big bottle of vodka of everclear.

Although I hate Bud now, this watery beverage did hold a special place in my college years...I think it should be mandated that in order to purchase BMC you must show proof of age...and college attendance.
