2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is not a terrible beer. Pours a very light amber in color, high carbonation is noticeable however the head is thin and dissipates quickly. The nose is slightly grassy with a bit of lager-like esters. Once in the mouth there is a noticeable sweetness that is not caramel-malt but rather a cidery sweetness reminiscent of table sugar. A noticeable "Budweiser" lager yeast taste finishes the palate as the over-carbonation quickly dries out any iota of a finishing note. It leaves behind a very unnatural and chemical-like sweetness bordering on medicinal on the palate. The four types of domestic hops are really unidentifiable and primarily a reason to market this beer differently. I’d like to try this head to head with the original Budweiser.

12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Born on Jan 08, 2013.
A - Pours a golden amber body. One finger of white foam dissipates quickly leaving behind zero head.
S - Sweet corn, touch of malt. Not sure what else, just predominantly sweet.
T - Again with the sweet corn. Finishes nearly dry with a lingering stale bready malt flavor. Not bad actually.
M - Thin but spritzy.
O - Not as bad as I was expecting. An improvement over standard Bud and the Platinum, but I won’t be buying this again.

Amber color, no head to speak of. No aroma. Average taste. Descent session beer if you want a higher ABV content without tasting anything. Wont have again

Thank God for build your own six packs so I didn’t have to buy a full six bottles of this. Pretty much the same as everything else bud offers. Complete middle of the road beer; not horrible, not great but way too overpriced for what it is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent amber with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes slightly foughy and malty with a slight beechwood taste. Average on the palate. My expectations were exceeded.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours clear amber with fizzy off-white head. Faint fruity aroma. Flavor of sweet sweet malt, roasted caramel, a little alcohol and finishes with bitter hops. Watery on the palate. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sour and tangy industrial lager with a yeasty undertone. The flavor was tangy sour industrial lager though with a more smoothly blended flavor and lacing the chemical presence found in many of the style. Short tangy finish. Medium body. Better than regular Budweiser but still not good.

4% version. Pours a nice clear golden color with a large white head. A light sweet grainy nose. A very smooth flavor of earthy grains, cola-like carbonation, light wood. I’d like to try the 6% version as well. Very clean and decent.
