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.

scooterbub (870) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 26, 2009
2006 bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a thin white head that slowly fades. Taste is of caramel, fruit, malt, honey and some hops. Rather sweet. The alcohol isn’t noticeable, which is surprising. Similar aroma. A pretty respectable beer from A-B and well worth a try. Also I like the bottle. I’ll have to pick this up again.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 2-3-6-4-4-14 This 1 quart 14.5 oz bottled brew with a flippy top and a nice foil label poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a transparent carbonated orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was very mild and almost non-existent except for a mild malt note. The mouth feel was tingly and vinous right from the start with a mellowing in the finish with a mild lingering vinous corn aftertaste. The flavor was vinous with malt and hop notes that was very different from any other Bud product. At least they are trying to make something new and different. It is sure to give the average Bud drinker a buzz. 2007 version 6-4-7-4-16 This years version was much better. This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent very softly carbonated light orange brown colored body and thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was vinous and brown malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish vinous aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of vinous and mild brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

If this is definitively a malt liquor then it has to be one of the best out there (havent had the Dogfish Head). The head sustained really well, and this beer a much better offering than anything else branded Budweiser by Anheuser. It definately has more depth in the malts and a lot more hops than regular offerings. Also the bottle is great for homebrewers that bottle, that have people over a lot... One of these saves 2-4 smaller bottles.

Bottle (large one). Amber to copper colour with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel with some fruity hints. Malty taste, a bit alcoholic but not a bad beer.

2007 Vintage, Fargo, ND. Amber colour, malty caramel aroma. I scored one of the magnums for $5.99 at a clearance so value for money it was good - had I paid the $26.99 ’original price’ I may have been upset!

1 quart 14.5 fl oz, 2007, dobbel bock, thanks to Papsoe for this treat. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing tan head. Breadish and mild spiced aroma. Breadish and mild spiced flavour with a mild oldish feel, yet smooth and nicely balance between bitterness and malt base and the spice note. Ends mild bitter and slight spiced. Light liqourice touch too.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2008
Vintage 2007, courtesy of Papsoe. It’s beautiful, red-golden with a sweet and vinous aroma with notes of raisin, fruit, roasted malt and caramel. The flavour has a malty sweetness, it’s slightly vinous with notes of raisin, caramel and slightly grapefruit-like hops. It’s surprisingly light in the overall impression, but nice.
