COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, courtesy (?!) of JPDIPSO. Totally transparent copper with a fizzy white head. Burns the nostrils - cooking sherry, cornstarch, burlap, corn syrup, burlap and Vics Vapor Rub serving as a sinus elixir. Flavor brings home the grand champion of malt liquors, with decipherables consisting of corn husks, greasy jo-jos and rice chex. It’s been forever since I had a drain pour, but this definitely was deserving of its journey down the laundry room sink.

Golden liquid with a diminished off white head. Another european strong lager aroma brew. Heavy malt, corn, light herbal flowers, and touch of higher alcohols. Sadly, perhaps even a malt liquor aroma. OMG this is malt liquor. Flowery hops spring in with light malt flavors. Marketing at its finest. Place a brew into a 1 quart 14.5 fl. oz flip top bottle (charge $12) that would fit nicely into a 40 oz. twist off cap bottle and sell for $1.39 at the corner mart. I have disliked A-B since 1982 ( Ok I’m still bitter about the Brewers losing to the Cards) and have just lately thought twice about it verses the other macros, but this drops them down to last status again. What a bunch of Cr@p!

This was truly an aweful experience. Tasted like Budweiser concentrate with a gym sock infusion. Ick. Never again.

...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.

This is pretty much what is says. An imperial budweiser. Has tons of cooked rice and rotten sweet caramel malts. Some earthy flavor and moss too. Cardboard, terrible.

Why oh why am i rating this?! I dont usually rate this kinda stuff! WTF! 12oz bottle, black glass, white generic label. Small white head, fizzles quickly. Color of Bud. Light grainy nose, cidery. Body is light, astringent. Sweet malts, grainy, vegetal, cider, brackish. Finish is medium sweet. Bud malt liquor? ARF!! I do believe i,ve overated this one! HA! Free bottle provided by Robert @ SLL. Thanks Roberrrrt!?

Three Words... Tastes like Micky’s 40oz...but $10 more expensive. Nice Gift box and Bottle though... Good gift idea for someone you don’t like ;-)

i thought this beer was terrible, it just tasted like strong budweiser, with all the resources and money that have, they really could have come out with something cool...i can’t really say i’m disappointed though, i had low expectations

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