Expensive beer for the taste. It has a smoother finish than its European brothers. This is not a typical AB product.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 World select ...... hmm. Tastes like a slightly more concentrated version of Michelob. I’m beginning to wonder if AB has a clue about what good beer actually represents, because if this is their idea of a world select lager, it must have been introduced on April 1. On the other hand, it is better than Heineken, but as y’all know, that ain’t saying much.

Whatever they are charging for this beer, it definitely isn't worth it. Light on the malt, has a cheap husky taste to it, with some hop presence. Nice gold color. Boring.

Planned skunkiness. This is purely a market share move designed to elbow Heineken and Beck's. A little maltier than Bud, but even if they'd have actually pulled off a Eurolager clone, this would still be a mediocre attempt.

I was amazed at how much Anheuser attempted to replicate Heineken. Overall, it's not too bad, especially for A-B. The after-taste isn't nearly as poor as most A-B products.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2005 Orange yellow with white foam. Flower-malt aroma. Full bodied. Solid malt beer. The flavor is actually relatively smooth, understated malt ... OK, it’s way better than Bud Light. Not too bad.

Clear and straw/light golden. Moderately carbonated. Texture was light and creamy; a bit watery here and there. Malts were unproportionally sweet; grainy and cracker-like, with a slightly roasted quality that begged for attention, but not worthy of it. Extremely low bitterness; not nearly enough to balance this beer. A half step up above Budweiser. And what the hell were they thinking with the green bottles? ...all marketing, with NO PURPOSE.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2003 After trying Red by Budweiser, which actually DID appear to be a good faith effort by A-B to brew something other than an American Standard, I was disappointed to taste this World Select beer and discover that appearance isn't the only thing it has in common with Heineken. To its credit, it's a bit more bitter than your run-of-the-mill BudMillerCoors product, but otherwise the taste is exactly what you would expect - whiffs of malt and hints of bitterness (more than in a Bud) in a watery body.

Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with a light note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Same old stuff, just a new label. You expected something else?
