Finally got to taste Budweiser

I never used to drink beer but a friend of mine recently introduced me to it. He’s a huge Miller Genuine Draft fan and so I started with that but because I’m still a girl, I was naturally drawn to Budweiser’s pretty packaging.

There is no doubt that out of all the beers available in SA, Budweiser has the most eye catching packaging, however, a lot of people have told me that it doesn’t taste that great (including my friend the Miller drinker). I still wanted to taste it myself though so here we are.

Budweiser is one of the world’s most iconic beers. It was launched in South Africa in May this year by Anheuser-Busch InBev which merged with SAB Miller in 2016.

I’m no beer expert so as far as taste goes, I would say it tastes like a lighter version of Stella Artois. I understand why serious beer lovers wouldn’t like it because it’s a little more on the light side but for me, It’s great.

I wouldn’t say it’s the best. I think its drinkable and I like the fact that it’s not very bitter (and it obviously looks good) so i’m all for it.

  1. It’s not an all out bad beer, but if you’ve got a palate for draughts like Miller it would taste a bit dry. But for the packaging, kudos Budweiser

    1. I don’t really know what draught beer is but i’m assuming its more bitter and since I’m new to this beer thing, Budweiser works for me (for now). If it wasn’t for the packaging I would have never been interested in trying it, that is their selling point
