1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
draft, bar in harrisburg. Although clear and pretty in the glass with an attractive head, this beer is really disappointing. The aroma is forbidding, a little bit like a mineral-clogged pipe. There’s a sweetness on the palate and then the bad plumbing effect returns. I took a sip, then a second to make sure, tipped the barmaid and left the rest.

Should have spent the marketing money on product development. As bad as I feared. No aroma. Tastes like a boubon and water. Maybe a bit of Bass Ale flavor if you add two pints of water to each pint of Bass. I’m not sure who they are marketing this to, as my Bud fiend buddy doesn’t want to try it because he say’s it will be too strong.

I don’t get it. The commercial on TV says they used cascade hops. Barely if at all, they did however use some crystal malt as is evident in the color and aroma. It pours a realy nice copper color, decent off white head, looks OK. Taste like someone mixed a Budweiser with a Boston Lager and maybe a splash of SNPA. No hop character except whatever they put in regular bud. Way to thin and carbonated, I doubt this beer was even really top fermented. It’s pretty much like they took a bud and colored it to look like a pale ale, threw on a pry off cap and are hoping to sucker a few people into trying it out. I actually consider this beer to be offensive. The Michelobe craft beer efforts are at least legit. This is a bad joke!

Pours amber in color with a negligible head. Faint hop aroma. Unbalanced bitterness with an unpleasant sour aftertaste at the back of one’s throat. I had high hopes for this beer and what I found was a pale copy of a Sam Adams.

Smells like every other Budweiser I’ve smelled, and it seems like it has potential.
I’m glad I bought this in a mixed sixer because I don’t think I could drink anymore than one of these beers. I don’t like this beer, flavor seems weird. I had hopes for Budweiser since they were bought out by a Belgian company. Disappointment seems to be synonymous with Budweiser.

This tastes burnt. Why can’t they get anything right? It does have a slight hop aroma, in a break from their typical brews. Amber in color (likely from artificial caramel coloring). This is just unpleasant. Horribly over rated here at 2.7

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 DRECK. I couldn’t finish a second one. I was hoping that maybe I had found a cheap sessioner along the lines of Sam Adams...by was I wrong. It just flat out tastes cheap. The corn and rice adjucts come right to the front, an unpleasant soapy flavor floats around in there as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was artificial coloring added. Avoid it. RUN FROM IT. I will buy Mickeys before I buy this again.

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!

Typical Bud-like taste, just a little maltier perhaps. No big thrill. There is, truly, nothing more to say about this brew. I swear.

Stick to what you can do AB... tastless lager beer, with or without some type of fruit adjunct that stikes your fancy. Do not waste your time or money with this one.
