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.

Malt liquor in a fancy bottle. Ok, Iíll write more. Pours a just slighlty hazy golden color, small white head. Aroma of corn, and malt liquor. Flavor is malt liquor, cheap pastic, stale, malt liquor. Thank you John, for saving me the $12 I would of wasted on this one.

Bottled. Pale golden, near no head. Aroma of mashed apples. Sweet and lightly syrupy with clean mouthfeel. Some burning alcohol in a finish without bitterness.

12.10.05 Magnum, RLB YEHA-05 Golden pour with standard, thick, and rocky malt liquor head. Aroma is repulsive mix of cheap vodka, corn oil, and cooked rice. Monstrous flavor of cooked corn, corn, and more corn. There might be a hint of noble hops in there, but they are hardly noble for their appearance. Horrid.

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. Itís 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 Iím 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!

...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 itís 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.
