Budweiser is a crisp, tasty and medium-bodied American-style beer. In addition to the regular Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch brews several different beers under the Budweiser brand, including Bud Light, Bud Ice and Bud Light Lime. Beer has been brewed in Budweis, Bohemia (now České Budějovice, Czech Republic) since its founding in 1265. In the European Union, except Ireland, Sweden, Finland and Spain, American beer can only be marketed as Bud, since the Budweiser trademark is the exclusive property of the Czech beer manufacturer Budweiser Budvar. A golden lager beer with a light touch, it is a refreshing beer that will go well with summer meals. On the nose, Cherry Blossom Lager beer had spicy notes of sweet maraschino cherries (think Shirley Temple).
Sweet on the nose, like a Graham cracker, is a clean, drinkable beer that doesn't taste much like alcohol or hops. AB lager beer is available in more than 80 countries, although not under the Budweiser name in places where Anheuser-Busch doesn't own the trademark. Budweiser can also refer to an unrelated pale lager beer from České Budějovice, Czech Republic (in German, Budweis) produced by the Budějovický Budvar brewery. Lacking the hop nose or the acidic touch that people attribute to craft beer, craft beers are accessible but much tastier and more complex than Budweiser beers.
The most popular beers in the United States, Bud Light, Coors Light, Budweiser and Miller Lite, are all types of lager beer. This amber-colored beer has a sweetness, like bread pudding, along with the slight bitterness you would expect from an amber beer. So what exactly makes a lager beer? A lager beer is a beer that is made with a lower fermentation yeast, a yeast that, when finished fermenting, falls to the bottom of the tank. It is important to note that lager beer is not a type, but rather a family of beers that includes bright beers, amber lagers, dark lagers, bocks, doppelbocks, kellerbiers, rauchbiers, Oktoberfests and, perhaps the most popular, pilsners.
Beers are also generally fermented at room temperature, while lagers are fermented in cold cellars, generally in the range of 45 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. And despite their general appeal, in recent years there has been a big boom in lagers made by craft breweries, which were formerly the domain of beers. In an attempt to revive interest in its beer after the repeal of Prohibition, Budweiser began canning its beer in 1936.
