2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very faint sweet malt aroma, pours a clear yellow, with a quickly vanishing white head. AB must have a much different definition of hop aroma then I do. Thereís a bit of spice and a touch of spice in the beer, but itís very short lived, with almost no body. Itís a drinkable beer, but thatís about all that can be said for it.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Old old notes. Bottle. Kind of a citrusy caramel-pepper mess. Not too impressive, even for a michelob brew.

Iím surprised this beer isnít retired. I havenít seen it in a long time. Tried it on a hike across Bandelier National Park with Paul. Funky aroma, very stale. A bit of citrus, but not enough to overwhelm the off flavors. Watery body.

Shitty diacetyl bomb. Bland yet rancid at the same time. Impressive, and not in a good way.

I drank this purely for the rating. I have to say, that there was not much of anything going on in this beer. A slight bit of spice and fruit, but very thin and bland.

A bit disappinted at this beer. Was expecting more, but found it to have very little taste and aroma. Ok to try once.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden pour without much head. Kind of thin mouthfeel. Not much lacing on glass. Fruity taste, but nothing memorable about it either. Smell was fruity as well, the smell was actually better than the taste.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
translucent gold with just a ring of bubbles, medium body with medium-high carbonation.
aroma: peppery cascade-citrus hop aromatics, a bit of caramel malt sweetness. clean and pleasant.
taste: toffee malt sweetness, sweet orange, some leafy hop bitterness, a hint of astringent grain hunk, and another slightly odd note i canít quite pin down.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a yellowish color with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts with a hint of honey and some light hops. Flavor is pretty dull. Mostly sweet, light malts, a little honey and some faint hops. Drinkable at best.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle into snifter glass on Anheuser Busch Brewmaster tour. Golden color with medium white head. Thin-bodied, metallic, and overly carbonated as typical with Anheuser Busch products, but I will acknowledge some ale yeast esters and improved hops aroma. Definitely better than Bud. I donít get the marketing angle, though, the cheesy name and graphics. Whatís the target market here?
