Budweiser Select

Oh Bud Select. Where do I start with my relationship with you? In my early twenties, this was a go-to beer for me. I haven’t had one of these in at least eight years and can honestly say that I don’t remember how it was. I remember that when my friends and I would get this, we thought it was more flavorful than other Bud offerings, but that wasn’t saying much. Let’s see if my opinion of this one has changed.


ABV: 4.3%

Style: Light Lager

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Budweiser Select, or Bud Select is a light pale lager that contains 4.3% ABV and 99 calories per 12 US fl oz serving. Anheuser-Busch has aggressively promoted Budweiser Select. Its slogan was ‘The Real Deal.’ The company hired Jay-Z as a spokesman for the brand.”

Random: I’m almost embarrassed about how much I’m enjoying “The Voice.” It’s really starting to get good.

This brew poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated almost instantly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow with heavy carbonation visible. The nose had some sweet corn mostly with grain. The nose wasn’t as offensive or pungent as some other macros. The taste was not great (shocking, I know). There was a lot of sweet corn and then grain and nothing else. It had heavy carbonation and a medium thick body.The finish was really quick with corn sweetness. This was a really boring brew, but not as offensive as I thought it would be. I won’t be having this one again, for sure.
