Most of us know that Budweiser is akin to fizzy pond water and suitable to drink only in emergencies (as in you’re on a deserted island surrounded by sea water infested with man-eating sharks). So, Anheuser-Busch claiming, “Taste is making an entrance on 02.03.13,” with their new Budweiser Black Crown label garners a chuckle or two.

Look out now, more marketing gimmicks from the big guys.

We saw how Budweiser American Ale worked out, and the BL wheat disaster.

Quote:
The Black Crown was a yearlong project involving a challenge in which 12 “brewmasters” crafted six different beers and 25,000 customers sampled for their favorite pick. According to a company press release, the winning brew has “more body, color and hop character than the flagship lager” and has a 6% ABV compared to the 4.8% ABV of your standard Bud. The new amber lager features the same yeast used in Bud and comes from a strain used in 1876 by Adolphus Busch.
12 brewmasters? Guys make better tasting beer in their garage and don't need 12 experts. And now bro douches will go crazy over the 6% abv just like bud platinum.

most people don't care about beer taste, they care about the alcohol content

Which is why Bud is so perplexing to me.

Fermented water with a sub-5% abv... why?

It doesn't taste good enough to sip, and by the time that you've had enough to get a buzz, you've had eight of them and your stomach is full.

A good beer with a lot of taste I tried recently was Sprecker from Milwaukee.

Yeah, that's a good one...their Black Bavarian lager (schwarzbier) is very tasty. I also like that their bottles are 16oz

Budweiser is like making love in a canoe.

Spoiler
It's f**king close to water.

The useful thing about mass-produced US beers is that if you're working outside, you can pound one down with lunch and keep on working with no ill effect. Healthier than soda.

They're also good golf course beers. I couldn't imaging playing a round and finishing with a respectable score with a six of Dogfish Head 90 in the cart.

At that point why do you have to drink a beer? A glass of ice tea or water should do the hydration trick. And yes, if I played golf I'd drink craft beer. You know that some craft brewers make pilsner and wheat beers, right?

As hilarious as that article's headline is, nowhere does Budweiser admit that its beers have no taste.

This is why journalism gets a bad name at times, and it's perpetuated by people who feel they must post this "news" on every message board on the planet.
