12oz in Boston. Could be worse. Slightly rich, clear reddish lager. Apple juice. Whiff of Euro ’premium lager’, i.e. heavier malt bill. Sweet, alc swig. clean and mellow, clorny malt, banana yeast. not so tasty

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not that I was expecting much, but this is disappointing. Advertised as though Budweiser just discovered the art of brewing beer, this really just tastes like a regular Bud with a little more pronounced flavor. The problem is, the pronounced flavor is not very good at all. Strong alcohol presence makes it taste more like an 8% abv beer than a 6%. Aroma is stunted and off-putting, smelling like malt liquor. Appearance is enticing with its amber/caramel colour, but the taste is not very good at all - alcoholic sweetness mixes with all the flavors of a standard Budweiser lager, but the alcohol masks the flavor of anything remotely good about this beer. Overall, I FAR prefer regular Budweiser to this.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Couleur bronze avec un bon col de mousse ; céréales (maïs) et sucre (surtout du caramel et du toffee) en nez. Les saveurs sont, en revanche, assez convenues : maïs, sucre cuit, c’est une Budweiser régulière avec un brin plus d’originalité, mais c’est encore très insuffisant pour être le moindrement intéressant. Toujours est-il qu’on salue le geste, qui pourrait mener à une réelle créativité un jour. En attendant, celle-ci est buvable, à défaut d’être d’un quelconque intérêt.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
341 ml single bottle, CDN version Budwieser Crown, impulse buy from the Heffley Creek Store. Surprisingly fine looking pour, clear bright copper with a lasting, rocky foamy white head. Looks can be and are deceiving... aroma is muted and foul, tastes like they just added some caramel to their regular king of industrial swill concoction. Perhaps a feeble attempt at being crafty? As bad as this is, it’s still: LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

This beer is awesome. Looks and tastes great. 6% alcohol content makes this offering from Budweiser even better. Clear, crisp and light -perfect for throwing some back with the boys watching NFL, NHL, BBQ’S whatever!!!!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and grain malt with earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium to light body and medium carbonation.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours light gold with very frothy head - overly carbonated. Not much in way of aroma - a bit of dusty earth. Taste is mild, perhaps a touch sweet, but not much there. A step up from normal Budweiser I guess but I still wouldn’t buy this.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber pour with good near white head. Caramelly, but not overly sweet. Malty, with a toasted biscuit note. Kinda reminds me of a watered down, less good tasting killians. Meh. But not horrible.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of damp grain and sugary caramel. Golden orange color. Corn syrupy sweet taste, weird sugar aftertaste. Noticeably strong feeling, although in truth it is not strong at all. Body seems sticky. Those adds with the cool people, all dressed in black, uniting over this beer...and it’s not even a true amber.
