|I really have never, ever gotten why people rave about Budweiser. It's just so bland and devoid of malty or hoppy or any real enjoyable-beer-making character...compared to even the ubiquitous PU. And it's stronger, at that...wait...now I understand why Britons tend to wet themselves over it. Bang for buck.|
No, really, is it just that it's that name and is cleaner and ergo more drinkable than the American namesake?
PU OTOH, is still a wonderful beer. A slight bit of diacytel, the perfect amount to train homebrew judges (and homebrewers) in how to perceive when enough is enough. And a bit of residual sweetness (though also 44 gm residual sugar per litre vs 30 for Jever...beware!) with noble hops and malt...just a wonderful beer. Pity they don't do a proper 10° or 9°; the special Swedish version Gunnar was kind to gift Becki & me was ...sorry... terribly disappointing.
