    drink this durning collage, it sucked then and nothing has changed. This beer only good for beer pong or chugging and must be served ice cold. Beer pours pale pee yellow, tastes like it too. which AB would spend money on making their beer better and less on commercials.

    The first time I had Bud Dry, I thought it was a pretty good beer. It was smooth and crisp and went down well. Each subsequent trime I had it, the first time seemed farther and farther away.

    Hey Mack Brown. The 80's called. They want their slacks and polo back. Oh yeah. That little queer defensive coordinator Buttchamp is eyeing your back side. Your nickname isn't "BACK BROWN" for nothing." You go Back Brown!

    I have to admit that Bud Dry is god awful stuff. Sure, it looks like it would be a good beer, but it's not. Colour - clear yellow. Aroma - malty. Mouthfeel - watery. Flavour - god awful. Overall - not good.

    I tried this beer during the 'Dry Beer Rage' of a few years ago, and recently found myself trying it again...with the same result. Not a very good beer.

    I'm a little disappointed in the reviews I've seen here. I don't make it too much of a habit to buy cheap beer. I'm more of a micro-brew man, a local drinker is the best kind of drinker. However, looking at the reviews here provoked me to at least say something. I hate Bud. It's a beer I've drank almost nothing of. It's corporate and nasty. However, I think that of all the brews they have produced, Bud Dry isn't that bad. It reminds me, even though of some of their...lesser brews, of some local breweries in my area. To me, it's less about the "drinkability" and more about the beer itself. It does seem to have a strange taste at first but the more I try it, the more I find myself thinking about it. For such a cheap beer, I think it's an excellent choice. I didn't score it very high...it doesn't deserve a high score. It does deserve however, a higher score than Bud's original brew. I hope that the other reviewers here aren't regular bud drinkers, for their own sake.

    Uhh......errrr......the quality of this beer is exactly like it's name..."DRY". Tried this a few times back in the day, when I would drink Budweiser. Was probably at some night club or something. Just remember that I didn't like it, and could be one of the reasons I stopped drinking Bud altogether. Seriously, I think I'd rather have an Old Milwaukee or Busch from the can over this one.

    Eh. Not A-B's best attempt at beer. Not dry, not good, not worth the $.50 a can I paid. I think there are better cheap beers out there, that cost more. I am sure I wouldn't buy it again if it were $.10 a can. Bleh.

    Well, a friend of mine who lives in Missouri drove up to visit and brought this beer with him. I can't really describe it, as there really is nothing to describe, save for a really nasty aftertaste. Avoid this one and pick another macro lager instead.

    Not sure why the big guys try to brew anything ohter than what they know really works. To me this and Bud Ice are the worst beers A-B has put on the market.
