1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
No head, no aroma, light taste. Darker flavor and less citrus taste than a regular Budweiser, yet still very light. Almost watery. Can be satisfying on very hot days when wanting water with alcohol in it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain/cereal, husks, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of fusel alcohol (isopropyl), concrete, metal shavings.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
Night of the Living Swill Part Two. Almost nothing going on in the nose...the usual clumsy malt and some mild flaws, but really there’s just not much odor at all. Sweet and fizzy in the mouth, with expected grain husks and slight chemical aftertaste. To think that this was chosen above all others of SUPER DUPER PROJECT TWELVE is pretty sad. At least the vanilla thing was drinkable...I wouldn’t even water plants with this.

Pours light amber with lots of visual carbonation but the head quickly dissolves. Light sweet grainy aroma. Lots of carbonation on the palate with some sweetness. The hops are really not detectable and just balances out the malt. Dry clean finish. Overall pretty refreshing and not overly filling.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber color with almost no head. The aroma almost smelled like cream soda. The flavor was a light caramel, banana. The flavor could be stronger, but this was drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 Fl Oz bottle: badged as 91406. Drank on 7 Feb 2013 in my hotel room (San Francisco).
I quiet enjoyed this actually: lager based but with a bit of character.
Golden body, but with a slightly darker hue than most lagers: same white head that refuses to hang around though.
Not quite odourless but almost: some grainy and hop notes can just about be detected if you sniff hard enough.
Crisp and refreshing with a corn bread and mild hop feel.
Forget who brews it and the beers isn’t bad at all. It’s a lager with a bit of umph to it and should be marked accordingly.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. Really just seems like a more full bodied Budweiser. Nothing special, but quite drinkable.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Beers like this make me hspot for microbrewerys. Absolutely horrible. There is no discernable aroma, it actually stinks to me. It starts off sweet as pie- make that sweet corn pie. Then you get an overwhelming taste of, I don’t know cheap vodka? It taste like pure alcohol masked in sweet corn vomit. Never buy this in my humble opinion.

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.
