Carefully brewed with barley from America’s heartland and cascade hops from the pacific northwest, this rich, amber colored ale has robust flavor and a distinctive hoppy finish.

Good moderate beer for a reasonable price. Average ale taste but no real thick head or aroma, on average, a decent beer.

If your new to beer, this is what I call OK at best. It has a decent hoppy finish, but other than that is just that, OK. It’s a make do at a cookout, or a bar that mostly serves pabst, and natural light.

Well this is at least a little bit better than budweiser. Not to much malt profile and a mild hop finish.

Tastes like a maltier version of the original Budweiser. In other words tastes like garbage water with extra malt!

amber color, aroma and flavors of stale grains, adjudications, and slight caramel, more drinkable than any other AB beer, but thats not saying much

Stale corn and cardboard. Bought it when it came out with pretty low expectations and this still managed to underwhelm.

An amber beer with a light head, much better than most of the other beers at A-B. A taste of malts with a bit of toffee. Not on par with craft ambers, but ok.

Not a bad effort by Budweiser, and I'll take this over any of their others. Still, aftertaste is a bit stale and lingers. Okay for a cookout with nothing else, but otherwise no thanks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

More than likely an old bottle from my local ABC. It smelled like a Styrofoam plate and tasted almost as bad. To this breweries’ credit there was actually an aftertaste of hops though!

Draught @ CT Whale game: This one was sold at the game as "Whale Ale" I got them to show me the cap for the keg to find out what it really was. The color is a clear amber color. Some tan head to it with a little lacing. Milder nose. Mainly caramel malts, but no sweetness and has some earthiness. Taste is OK. Malty, and a touch bitter with some of the earthiness and no sweetness. Acceptable.
