Anheuser-Busch introduced this lager In 1876 under the brand name Budweiser.

Budweiser is brewed using barley malt, rice, water, hops and yeast. It uses bleechwood ships in the ageing vessel, which is meant to give the beer a smoother taste. The maturation tanks used are horizontal and allow flocculation of the yeast to occur quicker. Budweiser was the first American beer to introduce Pasteurisation to enhance its shelf life and thus made it easily transportable and the first national beer of America.   

The colour of Budweiser is amber, and resembles the colour of an American baseball glove. The nose is initially sweet and malty with mild citrus notes that fade. On the palate it is refreshing and cool, perfect for a sunny day.
