3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale gold with a thick white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma is somewhat stale, dominated by a sweet macro-ish maltiness. Flavor is sweet and doughy with no hops to speak of. This gives way to a good deal of carbonation bite and maybe a hint of hops coming through. Finishes sticky sweet with a touch of dryness. The alcohol never really shows itself. Not a bad attempt by AB at all, and it would probably rate higher here if not for the anti-BMC bias.

Surprisingly good. Malty corny smell. Orangish color, generous head. Very smooth, medium-light bodied. Yeasty, malty taste, finishes smoothly and lightly, even a little bitter.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Paul and Janice for this bottle! Medium gold, decent head. Aroma of honey and faintly floral hops. Unfortunately, this is a beer that smells far, far better than it tastes. Alcohol infused honey, a bit of corn, and a bit of off-putting sourness. Definitelyy sweet. Oddlly thick body, like locust bean gum got added. At least a hint of floral hops remained. Perhaps this would have best been billed as King Cobra Select. Nothing like a glorified $12 bottle of malt likka. Those who ragged on the DFH malt should try this and then shake themselves a bit before they criticize an overblown attempt at a style. I should note that by malt liquor standards, this stuff wasn’t half bad.

Comes in a very cool bottle that I will save and use again for my homebrewing. Pours deep golden with a decent head that last for a while. As for the beer... tasted like malt liquor. The more you drink the worse it gets.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a solid score, very solid. I thought i was just getting some glorified lager, but when i saw it was a malt liqour i was happy, very happy. Clear copper color with a fairly large off white bubble head. Smells like a grainery. The taste is weird, its beyond unique. Its basically bud, with no bad taste. There is nothing to it, but it doesnt taste bad. Thumbs up AB!!

This stuff wasn’t too bad but I wasn’t about to spend 13 bucks for a bottle. My buddy had it and he let me try it. I would much rather just drink a Budweiser.

Nice shiney clear gold/amber body. Nice powdery/soapy white head.
Sweet corn and peety malt aroma. A little bit of diaper. Kind of nice once you get past the corniness.
A bit too alcohol forward. Reminds me of a malt liquor… lots of alcohol, lots of malt. Sweet alcohol to me. But, it is still a little drinkable, does not have any offensive flavors. However… it would only be drinkable if I wanted an easy buzz.

Pours yellow like piss. Smells like Budweiser, alcohol and corn syrup. Tastes like water and corn. Overly cloying. Nasty unbalanced crap.

Gold Coloring with White Skin. Corny Malt Aroma.. I was Hoping For Something a Bit More Like Michelob’s Celebrate and Instead I Drank a $10 Bottle of Malt Liquor. My Beer Spidey Sense Just Didn’t Kick in In Time. I’d be Intrested to Know What a True Lover of Bud Thinks of This... Agreeably the Bud Taste with a Kick of Alcohol to it.
