1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
12 oz. bottle. I admit I was somewhat hopeful but . . . now I’m embarrassed. This is just putrid shit from AB. Medium orange pour, barely any head. Aroma like sugar water and touches of caramel malt. Flavor is corn, corn sugar, corn syrup, tons of sweetness, maybe a touch of something other than sweetness. Cardboard? Who knows. There are people out there that this will be the best beer they’ve ever had. That sadness should echo forever.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottles from Capone’s and Wegman’s. Pours copper with minimal head. Nose is faint; some caramel malt and hops. Tastes of caramel malt, finishing hops, and some breadiness. More flavor than regular Bud, but not something worth buying.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet corn-like aroma. Gold color with a white head that dissipated quickly. Very clear. Lots of caramel in the flavor. A hint of spicy hops in the background. Balance is way towards the malty end. No diacetly or fruitiness . Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, its very clean and lagered well, but seems to have too much caramel for the style. The caramel reduces its sessional ability. I would like more balance.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear amber body, small fizzy white head, decent retention. Nose is decent, caramel malt, slightly grainy, a little sweetness. Flavor isn’t much better than your average craft amber. It’s way too overly sweet up front and fades to a corn syrup laced finish. Can’t say I get a whole lot of beechwood character, but maybe a bit late on the back end. Light to medium bodied with a bit of sugary stickiness and fizzy carbonation. Not that horrible, but not exactly something I’d seek out again.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From bottle. Pours golden and clear. Aroma was sweet bready malt. Taste was bud-crap-lite-beer. But hey, change the name, bottle it and make a million.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Literally tastes just like standard Budweiser, except this one has 6% alcohol. Keep away from fraternities. Looks like bruised bloody kidney piss. Try once, then avoid forever.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This just pisses me off. This is some absolute crap. Thin and watery. Nose is fruity and a light malt aroma. God damnit. Sweet, muddy malty, waste of $1.67.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
aroma like i remember michelob used to smell when i used to drink it..clear golden and slightly amber color with dissipating sudsy white head..im not trying to be a snob here but this tastes flat stale watery and unpleasant the sweetness just makes it worse,the hoppiness just an indistinguishable slight tingle.. someone will try this thinking this is what a craft beer tastes like and go right back to drinking budweiser,so its clever in a way..bad aftertaste and inappropriately low in carbonation..overall..id rather have a bud or michelob..you can do way better for 8 bucks
