2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle - thanks Folty. Clear orange pour with minimal white head. Yeast and lager malt aroma. Simple and uninspired. Better than Bud heavy though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours amber with thin white head. Bit of a corn aroma. Similar to Bud, maybe a little bit more body and a slight hop end. Nothing special but not bad. Not sure what the purpose of this was, do we need Bud with higher alcohol content?

Blech on top of blech. This is a clone of budwiser, just sweeter and stronger. Glad I didnít pay for it. Donít waste your money.

I actually get a hint of malt in this. Not enough to make me want to drink another but a hint none the less. Could be worse.

Its got more body to it than their platinum. Me iím a lager fan and I turned 21 in Saint Louis so Bud has a spot in my heart. Iíll be paying $3 a bottle at the bar for this stuff for sure.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 12 oz bottle. The lage poured a clear light amber color with an average frothy white head. There was some modest lacing. The aroma had a sweet malt aroma. The lager had soft carbonation and a medium body. The finish was sweet. The beer was a disappointment. I was hopeful for a bigger beer. It is drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a weak amber color with almost no head. Light caramel flavor. Tastes like a weak Fat Tire. Not terrible.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours a crystal clear lite amber, thin head that dies quickly leaving some lacing behind. Smell has hints of caramel, corn and a little lite malt. Aroma is very weak. Taste also has hints of caramel malt. Pretty sweet, almost no bitterness. Thin watery palate, Better than bud lite but only by a hair, still not worth buying, glad i only got one bottle

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the bomber into a pilsener, it pours a clear red with a one inch white foamy fizzy head that lasts for about a good two minutes before dieing fairly quickly. Rapid carbonation is seen rising. The smell is sweet among corn/rice adjuncts, malts, and sugar. The taste is the same. The palate is probably the best thing about this thing as it lives up to its label "distinctively smooth." It is light and coats the mouth and tongue smoothly. It leaves a bland, slightly metallic yet acceptable aftertaste and a sweet watery finish. Overall, actually not bad for AB, Iíd probably have this over a fair amount of other BMC products, but as an American Amber/Red Lager, Iíd say it doesnít compare to better ones of its style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
double deuce - pours very clear gold with quickly diminishing white head. Nose is faint: cardboard? Flavor adds sweet malts. yes, fairly bready. lightly sweet. better than the king of beers in both the flavor and ABV.
