CaptainBeer: Jim Koch has been quoted (paraphrasing) that he respects AB because no matter where in the world you are, regardless of what brewery it came from, The Budweiser always tastes exactly the same.Does ANYONE know how hard that is to do?
Hagenhatesyouall: The Stealth Hippopotamus: MaxxLarge: The biggest mystery about this whole thing is that anyone expected American beer to be any good in the first place.Well, it is well crafted. It's really really different to make a lager that light consistently over and over again.It's not my kind of beer but I can be impressed by the effort.I am, frankly, amazed at how they manage to remove so MUCH of the flavor and character from the likes of Budweiser.I have tried a few times to brew something as light and tasteless as Bud / Coors, but my beer has always turned out to be far too flavorful and aromatic to be even considered a close match.
JackieRabbit: A-B doesn't add water to their beer. I thought everyone knew that they added horse piss.
blatz514: You watch your whore mouth!
bdub77: I must snob this thread up a little bit. Just had this the other night. Awesome sauce. Great IPA, not too strong and great taste.Btw I'm sure A-B owns some great little beer companies, but their high volume stuff is indeed piss.[i-cdn.apartmenttherapy.com image 540x359]

stlbluez: My brother has been working at that brewery for over 30 years.Hes told me numerious times about the cost-cutting, the weirdness...Their beloved Mich Ultra.. Bud Selects, etc... are watered down EXACTLY as the lawsuit describes. water + extra carbonation = fewer calories... and inexplicably more expensive.They use about half the beechwood they used to in their 'beechwood aging'.. and they age it for half as long.Often times if a beer has some problems or irregularities.. it's 'changed'. Bud can become busch.. busch or even bud light can become natty light, etc... with a few additives.He's hoping this lawsuit sheds some light on the process... even though the alcohol content motivation doesn't hold water, in his opinon.I keep trying to tell him... dude.. no one cares. People know what they're getting. Thats why there's a 6 of some kind of IPA or unfiltered wheat in my fridge along with the 30pack of busch light :)
