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.

Better than other Buds but not a good ale. Slightly bittersweet, cheap taste, watered down, little depth of flavor.

Reddish copper color with hues of orange. The nose is low on power...mostly toasted malt. The taste follows the nose...it’s toasty and bready for the most part. Thin mouthfeel.

Had on tap, poured into pint glass a: clear amber color with a foamy 1/2" head that reduces quicly. Light carbonation s: not too much aroma, what is there is malt t: sweet malts, balanced with slight earthy hops. I would have liked a little more hop bitterness, but not bad that most of the masses should like

poured from a bottle. the appearance is a light red amber and the head surprisingly stuck around. the smell is hoppy and the taste is very bad. tastes very bitter with a tiny bitterness and yeast. overall it’s a very bad beer that i would not recommend.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Nose of sweet malts and caramel, not much else. Amber with a lighter amber / golden / light copper head. Taste of sweet malts and, yes, citrus hops. Real hops in a Bud. Thin in the mouth. Finish is actually bitter. Not great, not even very good, but certainly not bad.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a somewhat cloudy amber with a half finger of off-white head. Very light aroma of caramel. Taste is about the same. Lightly bitter with a very light caramel taste. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not very good. I would drink this over light beer any day but not something I would seek out.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle. Clear amber pour with a foamy off-white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is caramel malt with a touch of hop. Medium palate, not overly carbonated. Taste is caramel malt, a little bit watery, and just a touch of metallic tinge at the end. Not too bad.

After some skepticism due to the fact that I hate all things Budweiser (except for their commercials), I was actually impressed. It’s nothing like their other products; it actually has that after-taste that beer is supposed to have, instead of tasting like piss-water. Thumbs up!

Bottle. Pours amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of sweet malts/caramel with a hint of citrus. Slightly watery and sweet with flavors of malt, caramel, cardboard and roasted nuts. Maybe a hint of hops with a slightly bitter finish.
