Draft at Fox and Hound in Tucson. Not very exciting. but better than most of their stuff. Some fruit on the aromas, and some but not much on the flavor. The finish was somewhat bitter, but mostly metallic.

On tap at a local bar. Is amber in color with a off white head. Has little or no aroma at first. The bar served it ice cold. Has a light and watery body to it. Not as light as a regular bud. But still watery nonetheless. Taste was nonexistent until it warmed up a bit. Once warm I could smell some slight caramel sweetness. And it was very slight. Taste when warmer had a slight caramel sweet taste to it and a very subtle fruity flavor. Overall this was a big disappointment. I guess I shouldn’t have expected so much from ’the king’., but I did. This wasn’t as bad a regular bud, but is not far behind it. I might re-rate after I try a bottled version. But I doubt it.

Bottle from Market Street in Allen, TX. Pours a very nice looking amber, off-wheat head. Nice aroma of caramel and hops. Flavor is nice as well, faint sweetness of caramel malt, nice hop flavor, with a noticable light bitter kick. Palate is light-medium body, high carbonation, easy to drink. Overall, it’s pretty good, will finish the six pack.....Im glade they made a pretty good beer.....

Well I guess it’s there attempt to up their game. Amber pour with a caramel and sweet malt aroma. The taste was pretty much the same. Surprisingly not horrible.

Quite surprised with this from AB. Has distinct malt and hop aroma. Nice clean deep amber color with a healthy head. Never would have guessed this was made by AB, more along the lines of a middle of the road pale ale or english bitter. Citrusy hop aromas and flavors that finish cleanly. Pretty excited to have this lined up next to bud light every where around the world.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2008 SURPRISE! I had a pint of this while at the brewery, and it has to be one of the best a-b products I have ever had. This has faint but very plesant hop aroma. The beer looks fantasic with a deep amber color a good one figer head that sticks around and leaves plenty of lace. The flavor is very well balanced with a good light roasted dry malt character with plenty of good hop bitterness, the flavor is somewhat fruity however is not terribly sweet at all. This is very easy to drink and I will have to break down and buy some as soon as it hits stores.

On draft @ Qwest Field - Looked pretty good in the plastic cup. Deep, quasi-hazy red body with a small white head. Really skunky malt backbone - heavy wet leather taste with some earthy components and even a little butter. Have tasted much worse from this outfit - stands head and shoulders above their pale lagers but is still aways away from being good.

Bottle, pours a clear amber with a decent big puffy white head. aroma is sweet malt and floral hops. Flavor is on the malty side with a nutty back taste and a light bitter hop finish. Thanks Jamie!

Shared with BeerVirgin at JPHenleys.This was given to us by the bartender to see what we thought.I must agree if you didnt know Bud made this I wouldnt have known any different.This was a solid craft beer with lots of hoppyness to it.It was an amber pour with a small white head.Nose was fruity, malty and hoppy.Finished of bitter and dry.

This beer really does bite. It’s amber with a shallow head. Aromas of skanky roasted citrus malt. Medium nectar with good carbonation. The flavor is twisted by a peach pit bittering component that combines citrus and boiled caramel. Hints of burnt coffee on the bitter finish. Just horrible.
