3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear mostly amber color. Could be a tad darker before I call it amber. Nice frothy head. Some lacing.
Aroma is caramel. Roasted malt. Bread. Maybe some hops. The caramel aroma is the best feature, itís pretty strong. It smells similar to regular Budweiser, but the caramel makes it a little richer.
Taste is hoppier than Budweiser. Itís a tad sweet. I really donít have a lot to say about the taste.
Mouthfeel is medium. While itís well carbonated, itís actually soft to the finish, which is weird. I donít really like it. It finishes bitter.
Overall, this is pretty good. Itís somewhat odd. Itís not complex, but they may have tried a little too hard with this. Sometimes, "less is more." I donít really find this so enjoyable because itís hard to pick out any certain characteristics. Itís worth a try, and itís still a pretty offering from Budweiser.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well, what can I say? I was thirsty as all-get-out, itís hot as a two-dollar pistol in Atlanta, and this is what they had.
Pours clear amber with a fairly thick but effervescent ivory head. Weak aroma is fruity and malty. Flavor is actually OK, more fruity than malty, pear with some apple. Mouthfeel has average body, but fizz leaves something to be desired. OK for a party or while watching your favorite team kick ass.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a soft aroma of malt and hops, faint but there
Appearance- A dark copper colored brew with a medium sized white head.
Taste- An okay BMC product, does not compare on the flavor chart to a craft. not horrible
Palate- Has a nice crisp feel, light bodied brew with heavy carbonation.
Overall- An ok beer if the place you are at has a limited selection. There are many worse beers out there.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce single bottle from Hickory Tavern in Charlotte, NC, but widely available everywhere. Pours a lightly dark amber color with a thin head. Aroma is grassy and a bit of hops. Taste is super boring. This is just a stronger version of Budweiser with no redeeming quality what so ever.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ok, so I tried it out because I thought it would add one more beer to my board. Not a fan of house brews, but they hold the advantage of making us love high quality craft beer!
341ml amber bottle poured in a pilsner glass at 4 degrees:
The pour is fluid/aqueous with a clear dark straw color showing some orange shades. Big carbs topped by a vivid rough white foam fading completely leading to no apparent lacing.
The nose is grainy, mostly, but also has some sweets (caramel maybe) and a metal element in the background. NOthing more to say.
On the tongue, the grainy malts come first and clear the way for that those sweet/metallic features not really adding an enjoyable aspect to the beer. They last quite a while on the palate so the finish is as... shall we say bothersome.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a bottle. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like stale malt, straw, and musky corn. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky straw, corn, not much aroma.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is musty corn, light caramel, light spice, and some funky wood character. Flavor is dry and funky, not too offensive but definitely some cooked corn notes. Medium body and light carbonation.
