3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle, born on date of September 30, 2012 (Julian Date 12273 stamped on label). This is labeled as Batch 91406. A buddy bought me some of the Project 12 beers since he found them on sale recently (bought the 12 pack for just $5.75), so I might as well try them. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear amber color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like sweet and grainy malt, and some caramel. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some nuts. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, with a good amount of carbonation. Truthfully, this is better than I expected it to be. Worth a try if you can pick up a single somewhere.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour is a clear copper with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is slight caramel malt with some sweetness. Flavor is no different than Budweiser. Adjunecty with no aftertaste. Gimmicky beer but damn if I know what the gimmick is.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of faint caramel and grass. It pours a transparent golden-amber with small white head that quickly fades to a thin film and leaves some thin spotty lacing. The flavor starts with some faint caramel and fruit. The finish has some oxidation and some faint grass. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall...it tastes like a Pale Ale that was weak flavored to begin with...and this one is a year old. I would choose it over regular BMC.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale amber color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain, malt and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of grainy malt, and earthy hops. The finish is short with a short caramel malt aftertaste. Like Pizza Hut, Budweiser just keeps shuffling the same ingredients around and changing the packaging and marketing.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a deeper gold, nearing amber. Nose is sweet and corn-like. Sugar and faint caramel. No hop. On taste, it is sweet and pretty clean, again has a corny thing going on. Meh, at least it’s 6%?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish pour from a bottle. Sweet aroma. Malty backbone. A little watery but to be expected. Didn't mind it - kinda better than I thought it would be

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I’ve decided that most people who rate beer on this are beer snobs. Unless the beer is overpriced, over hop and available in the only certain parts of the country.
I enjoy all kinds of beer. Add I think Budweiser black crown is a very good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light amber with minimal white head. Aroma of grains with a little caramel. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Caramel and light herbal hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Kively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall, not bad. I dont know how this one won the contest though.
