Not that terrible for a budweiser, but still has a slight flavor of skunkiness and a mass-produced flavor/aroma. Don’t expect any bud to ever be "great" but I do hope that they continue to invest in smaller markets and better quality ingredients.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle, born on 01OCT13, screw-top. Nose is sweet (candyish) and corny-floral. Taste is sweet but not cloying, no bitterness, moderately clean, corn-based with slight malt and little graininess. Medium body with a little heft, maybe even fullish; it’s a little mealy, and overall bland and mostly still (and flabby, to boot). What elevates this above a malt liquor?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma : roasty malt and dough aroma. Some sulphur notes
Taste: roasted caramel flavors with a fairly bitter finish. Some apple sourness. Doesn’t finish particularly pleasantly

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very similar to amberbock but not as good. Amber color, thin body, roasted corn aroma and flavor. Decent for a mass produced beer by the same people that make everyday beerwater.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT - who knows where I got this. Pours crystal clear, dark gold, lightly effervescent with a moderate, foamy white head. Sugary bread, caramel and ripening fruits in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with candied fruits, orange, sugary bread, minimal bitterness, a bit of caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation and lightly creamy texture. Sweet finish, somewhat one-dimensional, with further caramel, bready and sugary malts. Perhaps a touch syrupy at points. Honestly, though, this isn’t bad. It quite reminds me of a mild, German dunkel, or just a basic amber lager.

Single 473ML 16oz can $2.35 didn’t buy it buy the case b4 that’s why reviewed now once single can’s showed up. This is the Labatt brewed version. Couldn’t smell it till can was to noze. Kinda sweet and spicy but also typical massed produced lager. Alot more smell from glass, can was light. 2 finger head fads away amber looking. There may of been carbnation didn’t fully pay attention. It’s just like budweiser but a bit sweeter and buttery like. Smooth & easy drinking. Not great but not shit. Don’t really care for it but it’s actully one of the better beer’s I have had with the budweiser name on it. Would not won’t a case of this.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not a lot of aroma, flavor, or consistency, but mostly inoffensive and fairly easy to drink. A watered-down version of an amber. I’d take it over the standard macro lagers, if that’s all that’s available.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Rite-Aid: Poured a medium colored amber hue with a thin yet dense foam head. Aroma smells sugary sweet like Nestea iced tea but nowhere near real caramel malts used by micros, however, this beer does smell more appetizing than regular Bud. The drink is well balanced and has a crisp palate but there is a not enough to convince me that the taste of this beer is even close to the competition on the shelves. Nice try InBev.
