Looking at their website, I sort of like Beck's, Landshark, Rolling Rock, Leffe.. heck, I didn't even know Anheuser-Busch owned the production of these.

They can almost exactly duplicate large volumes of beer repeatedly. I might not care for certain of their products, but I know exactly what that product will taste like, time and time again. Talk about controlling process.

Bud Dry was introduced nationally in the U.S. in April 1989 with the slogan of "Why ask why? Try Bud Dry." It was originally successful in test markets and was expected to be a popular beer with the rise in light lager popularity. However, after the introduction of Bud Ice in 1994, Bud Dry wasn't heavily marketed. Production was discontinued in December 2010.

I had a girlfriends aunt who use to drink a case a week of Bud Dry, I had a few every now and then, I liked it better than Bud Light. Bud Ice on the other hand is one of my least favorite beers of all time.

it's a interesting question....it really comes down to your own personal tastes.....
personally, i can't truly enjoy a beer anymore if it doesn't taste good, but taste is subjective. The more innovative and thoughtfully crafted beers i taste, the more disdain i have for AB. And now that they're not an american company (and now that i don't need a $38 keg of Natty Light), i don't really give a $hit about AB or what happens to them. Personally, i think their demise is eminent....which is a good thing for the American economy and the American beer drinker alike. To hell w/BMC, it has no place outside of frat parties and beer pong tournies.

Bud Ice is what we referred to as "Acid Beer", b/c every time there was a keg of it, fights would break out......

....or talk about not hand crafting beer. it's not like these guys (or any humans that work there) are pouring barley malt into the kettle....

Every now and then if there is little to choose from I'll get the American Ale.
