Brew Masters’ Private Reserve is an exceptionally rich beer that is a symphony of character, featuring a balanced hop aroma with 8.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). Based on the time-honored Budweiser brewmaster holiday tradition of collecting the richest first part of the brew as it is tapped to the brew kettles to celebrate the season, this is the first time it is being made available to the public.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2008
Vintage 2007, courtesy of Papsoe. It’s beautiful, red-golden with a sweet and vinous aroma with notes of raisin, fruit, roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has a malty sweetness, it’s slightly vinous with notes of raisin, caramel and slightly grapefruit-like hops. It’s surprisingly light in the overall impression, but nice.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2008
...not good at all. Overly hopped, poor head retention, and light mouth feel with added alcohol taste. Was a little disappointed, but not that much because it’s Bud, just thought they would have done good on this one. A little sweet, with a sourish hoppy, aftertaste. It was a gift, and I would never buy this.
