Take the awful taste of most energy drinks, mix it with the mediocre taste of Budweiser, and you've got a taste that is ... terrible.
Budweiser claims that their newest entry in a long line of innovative beers is, "a distinctive new product for contemporary adults who are looking for the latest beverage to keep up with their highly social and fast-paced lifestyles." It's distinctive all right. And I'm not sure your taste buds are ready for that kind of distinctive taste.
It smells like Budweiser and an energy drink. The problem is that a lot of energy drinks smell just like that blue fluid they use in a Port-A-Potty. And to me, that smell has never brought happy, images of refreshing beverage to my mind. Budweiser E also has this really bitter aftertaste that hangs on your tongue like a bad mistake constantly warning you that if you continue drinking, this taste will only continue to haunt you.
Before you accuse me of being a beer snob who hates Budweiser, let me tell you that I was in the mood for a Bud, I had no idea it was anything but a Budweiser, so it if it had that classic Budweiser taste, I would have been fine with it. But it wasn't for me. I couldn't get down more than a 1/4 of the can before I had to put it aside and cleanse my palate with another three Budweisers to remove the taste.
As a way to drink more Budweiser, it succeeds. But salty snacks are cheaper and taste better. If you want an energy drink and get drunk at the same time, I say try a vodka Rockstar. You'll be much happier in the end.
