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.

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.

Slightly heavier then bud light with a more malty taste and crisp finish. Still way to watery and flavorless to ever consider drinking this more then once.

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.

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

A-B In-Bev’s pathetic attempt to cater to craft beer drinkers.
Pours a rancid red color with a white head resembling foam generated by a giardia-infected stream. Looks like something ameobae enjoy swimming in.
Relatively unoffending skunky aroma with notes of metal and and grass. I made sure I was up to date on my Tetanus shot before consuming this one.
Tastes of... nothing. Very weak in the flavor department. They should name this beer French Soldier Light Ale.
Body thinner than a Trojan Ecstasy, with enough carbonation to distract your taste buds from realizing you’re drinking another terrible product from a macrobrewery.

A rip off of craft brews, trying to cash in on "amber"s. It does taste a bit better than reg bud tho. King of macros by volume but definitely not taste.
