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

Pours dark golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of husky grain, corn ethanol, and harsh phenols. Taste of adjuncts, corn mash, honey, and nastiness. Mouthfeel is heavy bodied and sticky with fizzy carbonation. Nasty!

This beer smelled of corn and alcohol to me- a very strong, nauseating smell. Taste was of a budweiser, with much more body than regular bud, with a medium to strong alcohol burn in the finish. Had to pour it out after the first 3-4 ounces as I didn’t want to get sick. Luckily, I got this as a present and didn’t spend my money on it. I was hoping it would be decent, but nope.

So if I understand the label correctly, this is the first runnings of the Budweiser mash, brewed at a higher gravity and then not diluted, preserving the potency. Poured a darkish golden with a rich three finger meringue. Odd aroma hints at berries, grass, bubblegum, but mainly butterscotch. After smelling it, I’m not very enthusiastic about taking the first sip, which I am about to do...cold (not just the temp, just a flat cold smack of candyish butterscotch sweetness), grainy, seriously undercarbonated which makes it all that harder to drink. Becomes very thin for an 8.5% beer towards the finish, which is shudder-inducingly bitter, not pleasantly hoppy bitter. Frankly this is awful and I’m going to have to dump this entire gigantic bottle, what a waste of money, but I can only blame myself as I should have known better.

Horrific. They make you want this, and when you take your first sips, you gag. Awful. Never again.
