2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 ml bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a clear orange colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is toasty grains and hints of caramel. Flavour is likewise with caramel a little more prominent. Only the faintest hint of a dry finish. On the lifeless side. For Bud it’s not bad; for real beer it’s underwhelming.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber with an almost non- existent head. No aroma, but a smoothe drink and pleasant flavor v with no bitterness. If I had to drink a Budwiser product, it would be Black Crown.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml brown bottle. Medium golden pour with a thin white cap. Nose is fairly clean and neutral, bit of grain and sweetness. Taste is toasty and grainy. Pliant finish with some grains and distant hop. Average mouthfeel, carbonation is pretty standard, ends dry. Overall better than normal bottles Bud. Overall ok, if I’m ever craving a lightly maltier, darker and stronger version of Bud, I’ll be sure to reach for this.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold pour with a soapy white head. Very faint and almost nonexistent aroma. Maybe a touch of sweet malts but that’s about it. Overly sweet and malty and then moves quickly to a strange bitter bite at the end. Not much else to the flavor. No depth.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured this into the same glass as I had previously had my Schnieder Weisse original in. Couldn’t smell this beer at all, it smelled like the Schneider Weisse. Pours a light amber with a decent head. You can taste the adjunct right away. Taste of sweetness. You can taste the caramel malts they claim. No bitterness at all. No complexity. No development of flavor. It’s easy to drink but I wouldn’t consider that "drinkable". I found it so boring that I was forgetting to drink it! Meanwhile I was upset that I drank the Schnieder Weisse too fast.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. 6%. Plain, flavourless, clear yellow fizz. All budweiser is beechwood finished, so this beer has no additional claim to fame other than the higher abv. Same adjuncty (rice) feel of normal Budweiser, not much else is new.Great for NASCAR fans in 40+ weather. Not much use otherwise.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Doughy yeasty nose, dark golden colour. Taste and palate are sadly disappointing. Metallic slightly bitter taste. Weak almost non existent palate with a hint of aluminum.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer smells overwhelmingly like dough yeast and slightly of caramel malts, and the color is a slightly dark orange with a bubbly texture and a large white head that fades rapidly. The taste is slightly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture, and a long, sour finish.
