      Every time I've had the misfortune of drinking Bud, the only thing I could think is that it tastes like water. Calorie water.
      Go down a few dark alleys.

        I have friends that drink stuff like that and Canadian or Coors Light regularly, and I just don't get it. It's simply terrible beer. There's a gazillion lagers out there that cost similar and are way better.

              ALL beers are like that. I shudder to think of a beer which is >50% ABV.

                Beer all mostly tastes the same. The most important feature is the temperature.

                  So far from true it's not even close. Beer should be served at the right temperature, but being cold doesn't stop a bad beer from being bad.

                    I've never have drank Budweiser but I've heard rumors about their new parent company InBev who have bought up a whole slew of notable breweries and basically used inferior ingredients vs what the original owners used. They are all about market capitalization and making money anyway they can while producing an inferior product.

                    I'm not surprised at this accusation.

                        Every brand they've bought has been turned to crud. Keith's? It used to almost taste like an IPA, now it tastes like water. Stella? Used to be ok, now it's barf-juice. Hoegaarden? I remember when it had flavour.

                        There's not a single beer they make that beats the non-InBev competitor.

                        Exactly what I'm talking about.

                          That's because it's not an IPA. I'm not sure it ever was but the company is claiming the name is 'traditional' and they won't change it. Confuses the hell out of visiting Europeans.

                            As I said, it used to almost taste like one. It tastes like the watered down swill all their beers taste like now.

                              I'm just not a picky eater (drinker), I guess.
