3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear beautiful golden with a thin foamy white head. Aroma was just like the bottleís tagline: golden amber lager (or, rather, pale vienna); has that lagery biscuit aroma but with a little caramel sweetness to smooth things out with a subtle hoppy fragrance. Crisp taste with a medium body and admittedly nice flavor. Honestly, if I had blindly tasted this and been told it was a craft beer, I would have given it a good score. So I have to give this Budweiser a good score. Oh well. The flavor was smooth with yeasty biscuit and pale cereal grains, with a little caramel sweetness and a subtle grassy leafy hop tone with low bitterness and a lasting toffee and biscuity flavor. Pretty enjoyable, even with that classic macro-brew waterbiscuit finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Huh? Darker orange pour with fake white foam head. Harsh bitter taste is not of hops but possible cough syrup. This isnít smooth, sweet, nor refreshing. It isnít a good sipper nor a slammer. They seem to be trying to pass this off as some craft brew. But itís like heavy Bud with piss added.
Iíve had worse but Iíve had much better. I didnít expect much from Bud but I expected better than this. WTF, Bud???????

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pre-warning: I normally do not drink Budweiser, so this review may be skewed.
Poured form bottle, into a pint glass. Pours a nice clear gold color, with a initial thick white head. Still bubbling from the bottom awhile after initial pour. Some light lacing on the glass.
Slight bready aroma, not much else.
Light bready flavor, not much else too it. They could have done a lot more with it. Very sessionable.
Average carbonation that leaves the palate cleanly with no lingering taste or feeling.
Overall, about what I expected from Budweiser: light amber with very little taste and no aroma. Iíd easily drink it over Budweiser or Bud Lite, so I guess itís a step forward for them.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear, watery orange with a solid short white head. Minimal retention and lace. Light sweet grainy aroma with a faint peppery bitterness. Same goes for the flavor. Has a slight metallic note. Beechwood aging? Light-plus body, light-sticky texture, good carbonation, and a short finish. For what itís worth, this is the best Bud iíve had to date.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber: Aroma is lightly sweet, maybe a little bit of hops, and lightly earthy. Appearance is a clear golden color with a white head that doesnít stick around for long. Taste is not that bad, Itís like they mixed Budweiser with a very weak amber. Palate is clean and clear with a note of the light hop texture. Overall, Meh...Itís just kind of... there, Cheer!

So, Bud Light has Bud Light Platinum. I guess Budweiser has Black Crown. Fair enough.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Essentially this is just a heavier bud. I guess it would be better to drink to get drunk because its 6%. Not a sip and enjoy beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber colored pour with a white head. Sweet bread, banana, yeast, a bit of water, and some grain. Light apple and metallic notes, some slight tartness, too. Flavor has a surprising amount of banana, which is nice. Toasted malt, bread, and yeast. Lightly metallic and tart on the finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with paperthin head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a watery malt and light caramel. Not much going on with this one.
