3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite decent offering in a macro-brewed light beer. Picked up a twelve on a hunch when I was in the mood for some light-weight sipping brew, and was not disappointed. This would really be quite excellent in the heat of the summer, and would be an excellent change of pace for holiday gatherings as well. Nice introduction to wheat beer, which can tend to be a little overwhelming to a novice. Hatís off to Budweiser for daring to offer a very tasty alternative to the mainstream light beer market. This is really quite an innovative move on their part.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The beer pours a very hazy light orange color, which lends it some degree of authenticity as a wheat beer. I donít think itís a gorgeous looking beer by any stretch of the imagination, but itís definitely not a weak offering. On the nose I detect almost nothing except for some wheat. Unlike the eye test, where this beer more or less passes, the nose offers almost no indication that this beer will have any authenticity to it. Thereís wheat, but how hard is it to get some wheat into a generic lager? Youíd like there to be some notable citrus or spice aromas, at least a sign that the yeast strain wasnít the blandest thing possible. But BLGW offers almost nothing worth writing down, smell-wise. The taste is more of the same, with a somewhat sweet wheat taste up front that goes down very cleanly on the back end. No horrible off flavors, but nothing particularly spectacular either. The mouthfeel is also unremarkable and exactly mimics traditional Bud Light, watery and blah. Drinkability, Iíd imagine, would be pretty high. Low alcohol content, somewhat sweet to make you want to drink more, not enough bitterness or off flavors to dissuade you from continuing. I hate to give InBev credit, but you have to give it where itís due, and theyíve made a solidly drinkable light lager with more flavor than the competition. What thatís worth is a product of your personal calculus.

Yes, Iím mowing through some BMC stuff. More notes were found and this is how this one will go.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden amber to orange color with a quickly dissipating one finger head. I heard it fizz as it settled. There was no lacing.
The smell had some caramel malts along with a breadiness coming about.
The taste took those aromas and made it taste heavy on the mouth and tongue. There is a super long wheaty finish and it didnít have any aftertaste.
On the palate, it sat about at a medium on the body with a quality that wants you to think its sessionable, but actually there seems to be a bit too much wheat in there.
Overall, actually, one of the better Budweiser products to me, though probably not one to seek out, but would rather have this one over some other products on the market.

You can smell the coriander and citrus peel on the aroma, a little on the palate but not much there in terms of flavor.

This beer pours a pale golden color with a decent head of foam but is quickly gone. The taste isnít bad but thereís just no girth to the beer. The taste is light obviously almost to a point where you canít describe the taste. A much better beer than say MGD64, but no where good as other wheat beers like blue moon. Itís a nice change of pace, but will get old quickly.

It tastes like a generic soda would taste if they were trying to make a wheat beer, awful.

Bottle. Pours an orange color with white head. Orange, coriander, malty aromas. Malty, citrus flavors, slightly oxidized but that may due to age. Still sucks pretty bad.

Bottle in KC, aged in my cellar just about two years now. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with a decent white head. Big coriander, spicy, orange citrusy aroma. Tangy bready, quite spicy, coriander, paper flavor. Not as good as Blue Moon by far. Unfortunately showing some signs of oxidation so I would recommend everyone drinking through any bottles that may have been put away in the cellar.
