2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
My Bottom Line:
Limp cereals give off honeyed allusions in this very quiet sugary lager.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the amber-hued golden.
-Hops are nearly absent.
-The malts don’t even develop clear caramel flavors.
-If this were crisp and refreshing, I’d at least quench my thirst. But it’s nowhere near that.
-I would take Sam Adams Boston Lager over this 10 times out of 10 (for a similar flavor profile, intensity and availability).

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can: Poured a light brown color lager with a medium head with limited retention and very subtle lacing. Aroma consists of light cereal with grainy caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by grainy cereal notes with light caramel adjunct notes. Body is thin with OK carbonation. Worst than I was expecting.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear dark copper with a big white head. After that this is dominated by acedaldehyde and some caramel malts. The acedaldehyde is acceptable in their regular lager but not in a Vienna. Sorry for folks this is just too much of an off flavor.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Aroma corny, fruity. Uninviting. Clear golden colour. Taste is lightly lightly caramelly, otherwise corny ambiguously malty. Not as tragic as most industrial beers. Drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 AB-InBev also has a beer called Busch Signature Copper Lager which is way better and cheaper than this garbage if anyone is interested. This headless amber nonsense has a bit more hop character than regular Bud but is too sweet and otherwise pretty boring. It has a bit of that apple-like yeast character Bud is known for and also a touch of diacityl so it is not even clean and well brewed. I can see no reason to ever drink this again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle pours a very light amber color with a finger and a half of fizzy white head that settles very quickly. Aroma is grassy with some grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A typical macro lager with just a little color added. Nothing special and not recommended.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear golden pour with no head or lacing. Malt, honey aroma. Malt honey flavour. Very sweet, sickly brew. Nasty chemical finish. Leaves a off putting film on the palette. Not nice at all.
