Default Budweiser American Ale Clone

I had some bud American Ale at a restaurant recently and liked the taste.
Austine Homebrew has a clone kit:
http://www.austinhomebrew.com/product_info.php?cPath=178_452_43_210&products_id= 11785
HAs anyone here made this yet? If so,how was it? I imagine homebrewing adds something on the plus side to this beer.

If you don't care for a particular beer style, that's fine. But let's not throw out derogatory remarks.

If you've made that kit, then please share with us. We'd love to hear of your experiences with that kit and what you'd do differently.

I like the Bud American Ale. Is it the best beer ever? No...but it goes down OK and just about every party store has it...

What's the point of coming into the thread to insult the beer in question? If the original poster of the thread wants to make the beer, what's the problem with that? Nobody's impressed by someone insulting a particular beer.

Beer's in the glass of the beholder.

That's funny, but I'd save the good homebrew for getting hammered and save the piss beer for a giant hangover and rot gut. And now we can maybe yield to someone with an actual clone... alla search function:

Some of us did a pretty thorough explication of the beer for creating a recipe, here.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/shooting-bud-american-ale-99846/

My posts in there, have the pertinant numbers, srm's, ibus, etc to work out the info....ANd the 4 hops used.

And Conroe did his "version" of it, It's not a true clone, it's sort of his "homage" to it. Sort of like if a microbrewery made it. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/mojave-red-112308/?highlight=mojave+red

Fine. Nobody asked you to.

Why post in a thread just to say you haven't made something? Who cares if you plan on making it or not? If you don't want to be helpful, don't bother hitting the "post" button. There are many recipes I'm not planning to make- should I go post that in each thread that I don't plan on making?

C'mon people. I thought my gentle nudge was enough. I guess not.

Everyone has differnt tastes.
AT one time, I used to drink 2 30pk of natural light a week. At one time i wanted to see if i could clone the taste...
Now, Not so much. I will stick with my dark beers

The idea is help out, bounce idea's off of each other and have fun.
I might pick up a bottle of the bud american ale and try it.
If it tastes good, Might make it to have on tap for my BMC freinds who come over.
Last time someone made a comment about the sam adams cherry wheat, Picked up a 6pk. It wasnt bad, But i dont think i could get plowed off of it.

One of the great things about Bud American Ale is that the BMC crowd DOES often like it...so if you're going to a party and want to bring some beer everyone can drink, it wouldn't be a poor choice.

Unless everyone you party with likes craft beer...in which case I want your friends...
