The King of Beers. Budweiser is as American as apple pie, a McDonald’s hamburger, or Clydesdale horses at the Superbowl. Its lighter brother might sell significantly more cases, but the classic Bud Heavy is the superior beer in nearly every way.

That Anheuser–Busch can produce a beer of consistent flavor and quality at this massive scale is an achievement in and of itself. Knowing that Budweiser will drink the same regardless of where you purchase it is at least half of the appeal of this, the macro-est macro beer.

The beer itself has a light, inoffensive maltiness that is pleasingly sweet without the artificial candied finish of a Bud Light. Get it ice cold and it will hit the spot.
