3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Molasses and buttery barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head - surprisingly lively carbonation. Sweet buttery caramel malt and hay flavor. Not bad - a pretty mild doppelbock though.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2006 vintage from Capone’s. Merdium gold pour with 2-finger whitish head. Aroma of grainy pale malt, some berry notes, and a pretty big apricot/peach waft to the olfactory receptors. The flavor was pale malty, on the sweet side, with some heavy syrup flavor and a touch of raspberry. Toward the end, it got a bit cloying and fell apart a little, but the first half was not bad at all. Better than I expected.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
2006 Vintage bottle. Pours with a hazed golden body and a somewhat slow to fade white head. Aroma is straight unfermented wort, tons of crystal malt, raisins and apples. Smells very sweet, but tastes even sweeter...cloying infact. Toasty, sweet and raisins. Lots of oxidation. Did they forget to add yeast, or are there just WAY too many unfermentables in the grain bill? Lively bubbles.

Courtesy of Degarth. Thanks? Pours clear copper with tan head. The aroma is blandish with muted dates that have been festering in the sun for who knows how long. I also sensed faint roasted malts and vague hops. The taste is mild and medium – middle of the road sweet dark fruitiness followed by creamed corn, cereal and a bit of booze. There is a mild hop and metallic note near the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big f’in bottle (1 Quart, 14.5 oz), 2007 Vintage. This poured a clear, brilliant reddish orange with a nice cap of yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up deep, artificially-sweetened caramel and toasted grains with hints of dark fruit surrounding.. also an odd alcohol-fueled metallic & herbal thing going on. The flavor had toasty drawn caramel, hints of chocolate, and peppery-spiced dark fruits.. decent components, but a messy presentation that culminated in a tacky, hot herbal finish. Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation on the middle, but hot alcohol marrs the finish a bit. This was OK.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden copper with a decent white head and a toffee aroma. There is a lot more substance than the standard bud in respect to malt and hops. The flavor is sweet caramel malt with slight hop bitterness and a metallic finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear golden with a well-lacing frothy white head. Potent alcohol and noble hop aroma has some grainy corn to it. Starts dry and thin with lots of adjunct flavor and burning alcohol. Slightly better than regular Budweiser, but charging $12 for this is absolutely rediculous. Thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing his bottle so I didn’t have to waste my money buying a bottle. There are a lot of better malt liquors for much cheaper.

Bottle - Vintage 2007 - Caramel malts and dark sugars. Dark brown copper with a decent white head. Dark malty caramel malts. Like a light Barleywine or American strong.

"for Budweiser, this is liquid gold...but in reality, when stacked up against many other good beers, it’s just ok. it does actually taste like they used hops generously, malt, etc...not urine, so that’s a plus. never thought i’d rate a bud close to a 3, but for the price, i want a 4+.

bought downtown, big ole bottle all to myself ...(why did i do this) .... pours a dark brown maroon colour .. a good maltster head on the medium pour .. but the lacing i say needs more work ... there are some nice simple flavours, caramel and maple, things of that sort ... "attire optional" ... shows the alcohol near the end, but it is a pretty good offering from the bud guys... 7-14-08 ..$52 billion offer from inbev for bud today...
