Like a mutation between 80% regular Budweiser and 20% Steel Reserve. Tastes of water and carbonation on the way down. The aftertaste is light and pleasant. The extra alcohol is hidden well. It might just nudge out regular Budweiser and some other mass-produced beers.

Far better malt character than regular budweiser, but it is useless to compare, this is a pseudo craft that bud is using to try to injure craft beer. It isnít that great.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow color with a slightly crisp taste. Minimal head, you can tell from the light taste and body that this is a typical American style beer. It could be classified as Budís slightly older and bolder brother, but not by much. I got it because of the Super Bowl ads. The ads were better than the beer...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Voltage, Philadelphia bottle ($4): Pours orangish. Aroma is grain and something that almost resembles caramel malt. Taste is pretty minimal, but has a slightly sweet finish. In some ways, the less said about this beer the better. In any case, I would rather have this than Bud Heavy any day.

Bought from town. 6pack. Pours a clear urine yellow with a trim milky head. Tastes and smells of limeade, LME, fried rice, and corn husks. Better than expected
Writing this on my friendís computer; it sucks.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz "bomber" poured into a pint glass. Hey, for $2.19, I decided to try it out.
Appearance: Typical amber color ... EXTREMELY clear. Decent head that goes away quickly. Obviously, no lacing.
Smell: Actually not TOO horrible... a bit of adjuncts in the aroma, but mostly a low-quality malt. I was surprised I didnít hate it. A bit of sweetness as well.
Taste: Tastes not at all like I thought it would... holy HELL is it sweet. Itís not awful, but Jesus. Adjunct flavors came through a lot in the beginning. Lots of sweetness, corn, low-quality malts. A woody taste comes through as well. After taste is of cheap malt, but itís inoffensive.
Not the worst beer Iíve ever had, but bleh. It is what it is... for the price, itís good to get cheap drunk. Itís certainly better than Budweiser, but not by much. Thereís a lot of sweetness, so I expect a lot of adjunct fans to fall in love with this.

translucent gold with a dense beige head. smooth medium body with medium-high carbonation.

taste: adjunct grain, pale malt, leafy hops, and a touch of wood.
starts decent, but has a strange tangy papery note that builds.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good finger of head on a clear, amber colored body.
The aroma is a little grain with some fruit, the beechwood is evident too. Smells nice.
The taste is balanced and smooth. It has only the mildest bitterness to go with itís malty body (for a lager).
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Itís a smooth and tasty lager.
