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.

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.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Malt and caramel aroma. Malt and caramel flavor with light grain and low backing hops. Medium bodied. Grain and malt linger with light caramel and low backing hops.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
