Brew Mastersí 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.

(Bottle) Pours an amber body with a moderate white head. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Flavor of caramel, some apple, and then the awful bitter aftertaste sets in....

Large hinged botte. Hazy amber orange pour with a huge off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with minimal lacing. Light tart citrus alcohol aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. Not what I expected, nice bottle.

Maria (10192) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2008
Vintage 2007, courtesy of Papsoe. Itís beautiful, red-golden with a sweet and vinous aroma with notes of raisin, fruit, roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has a malty sweetness, itís slightly vinous with notes of raisin, caramel and slightly grapefruit-like hops. Itís surprisingly light in the overall impression, but nice.

hopscotch (10075) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 Bottle... Clear yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Grainy nose with light notes of ethanal (acetaldehyde) and stronger notes of spent mash, honey and peppery hops. Sweet, boozy flavor with light cereal grains and mild, herbal bitterness. Full-bodied and chewy with medium carbonation. Lengthy, heavily sweet, mildly bitter finish. Imperial pilsener all the way. Not really my thing, but good for what it is. Spendy though!

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Huge flip top bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of corn and malt liquor (since I donít have too much experience reviewing Malt Liquors, this is only my 2nd to DFHís, Iíll leave it as generic, nasty malt liquor). It takes some balls to label this as your premier, Brew Master Private Reserve beer.
