Brewsday Tuesday: Budweiser American Ale
Name: Budweiser American Ale
Brewed by: Anheuser-Busch InBev
Style/ABV: American Amber / Red Ale / 5.3%
Appearance: A medium amber color with a two finger cream colored head that lingers.
Smell: Light grains, malty sweetness and citrusy hops. Not bad.
Taste: Caramel, malt sweetness and good hop bitterness. Balanced.
Mouthfeel: A bit thin, low to moderate carbonation.
Overall: Just because it is brewed by ABInBev does not mean it is a bad beer. This one is proof that when the King puts its mind to making something decent, it can suceed. This is not a beer that is going to floor hard core craft beer drinkers. However it is a good gateway beer to get those who rarely stray from BMC’s most popular offering to try something new. I enjoyed this beer and would have no problem picking it up again.
Final Grade: B
