UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 medium amber lager. Very, very thin white head. Light bitter aroma. Cool and refreshing. Crisp body. pleasant carbonation. Taste is mainly a light maltiness and caramel-like sweetness followed by a very light hopping. Drink this if you don’t want to notice you’re drinking beer.

Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Worth trying agian.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours an Orange color with soapy white head. Aroma of sweet malts and straw. Taste like Bud with oak flavoring. Sweet malts dominate. Caramel and hints of vanilla. Not a good one at all.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Dec. 5, 2012 (purchased the 12-pack for $12.99 at the 7/11 near Allied Gardens (San Diego) on Dec. 4, 2012. Caramel amber with about a finger of gray head that disappeared very fast. No retention on the top or sides.
Smelled caramel, toffee, roasty nuts and a bit of bitter chocolate malts. Had to work for it though.
Tasted not too much like the smell. Got a sharp whiff of alcohol up front and a bubble of carbonation that gradually built up to a malty finish. Got slight caramel but nothing too special.
Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Lively (above average)-to-fizzy (good) carbonation. Abrupt finish.
Not a bad effort, but the Williamsburg (23185) batch was the best in my opinion. I’d have this one close to the St. Louis (63118).

It poured a light amber color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was of grain and light sour notes. The taste was of very little flavor, with a hint of sweet vanilla notes, doughy yeast, sour grain and some water. Just ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear copper with a half finger of off-white head that settles quickly, almost no lacing. Aroma is very mild, sweet, fruity, wheat. Flavor is sweet wheat and bread up front fading into mild malt and fruit tones, apple. Moderate carbonation and very light body. Super smooth, light mouthfeel, drinkable, but underwhelming flavor. An average beer.

pours clear, medium amber with a short, slightly off-white head. Scent is caramel and malt. Taste is caramel, corn, malt. A slight spicyness....apple, maybe. Over-sweet and under-balanced..... Again, not that great,

If you told me that Batch 91406 was a throwback recipe of Budweiser I’d believe you. Light bodied, few shades darker, a bit more alcohol and flavor then the current recipe of Budweiser. Woodiness from Beechwood chips comes through in the flavor. I picked up a case for $19 to serve to macro drinking guests over the Holiday Season. I foresee them liking this beer.

12 oz. bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours clear light amber with a one finger head that is reducing quickly leaving a collar. Aroma is almost nonexistent, a little spicy pepper, and caramel malt. The taste is caramel malt, minerals, thin, watery, drinkable. Body is paper thin, carbonation is high. This isn’t bad, but really boring, they could have done better with this pack of beers, but it is Budweiser.
