Pours a clear amber color. Aroma is of toasted caramel with a sweet hint of molasses. Taste is slightly sweet with a minimal hop flavor. A little watery with no complex flavor.

Bottle thrust upon us by blipp at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a piss clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet corn and grain. Flavors follow the nose, more sweet corn and grain. Not much going on.

pours a nice amber brown with a decent head. smells like regular Bud. malty sweet with a bit of caramel, but spoiled by the same odd Bud flavor at the end. it must be the beechwood they are strangely proud of.

Pour from a 12 oz. bottle during a promotion at Crown in downtown Indianapolis. Pours a clear gold color, a bit deeper than regular Bud, with a fizzy white head. Notes of sweet and caramel malts, crackers, dried sweet fruits, sugar, and a little grass. Light-bodied, but bigger than a regular Bud, with medium-high carbonation and a sweet, malty, dry mouthfeel. Not very good but probably better than Bud overall.

Pour looks like a slightly darker Budweiser. Aroma is a slightly maltier Budweiser. Flavor is a slightly bolder Budweiser. Overall taste is just like a slightly better than Budweiser.

Was truly disappointed when first tasted this beer. It looked excellent and I thought Bud finally got one right. Taste was just not there and not one I will look for. Better than regular Bud, but still disappointing!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy golden beer with some orange accents. Thin, white head. Aromas are slightly woody and a bit skunky. Tastes of corn mash, some barley, tiny hints of caramel, and skunked beer. Some caramel malt in the finish makes this beer much better than regular Budweiser. Session beer and not terrible.

Meh.... Taste like bud light platinum. Very unimpressive. Though it does give you a nice shine.

Bonus points for the higher alcohol percentage. It basically tastes just like Budweiser though.
