2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - small foamy head, dark gold color, mild vanilla aroma that comes through more on the flavor, mild bourbon notes (I guess), sweet malt backbone, not much in the way of hops - OK overall, like the vanilla flavor but wish it was balanced out a little more with the bourbon

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark orange-amber with a creamy head that disappears faster than sense on a Fox News broadcast. Light vanilla on the nose, but not really much impact to it at all. Vanilla on the tongue, as well as toffee and caramel malt, but I don’t get any bourbon to speak of -- past that, it’s a pretty typical vienna lager. Finish is sweet and decently long. It’s all right.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at the 2013 OBF. Vanilla was present, but bourbon? Where? Also watery. I was not expecting much from Bud, and I pretty much got what I expected. They are trying to reach the craft crowd here, but this will not cut it.

Description could work if the brewer knew what the fuck he was doing. Why do brewers insist on getting super fancy when they fail miserably at the basic styles? Perfect example of trying to run before you know how to crawl.

Appearance is light amber in color supporting a thin dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell is faint, grainy and slightly hoppy. Taste has a maltly graininess a hint of the oak with vanilla in the end. Mouthfeel is light with a good spike of carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to shaker. Part of the bottle lip broke off inside the cap when I opened this using a standard bottle opener. Neck of the bottle is broken where it was once complete. I carefully poured this through a sieve and left any potential "glass dregs" in the bottle. I think this is safe to drink. Light golden amber pour with a lasting bright white head. No lace. Sweet grains, sugar cane, and more than a touch of grassy hops make up the aroma. Pleasant fragrance. Taste starts off sweet caramel with vegetal hop bitterness, a short splash of bourbon, copper, and then the familiar Budweiser finish. The caramel malt reminds me of the Budweiser Amber Ale which I thought was pretty good the time I had it. The finish on this one is bringing me down because it tastes like regular Budweiser which gives me a headache. Medium-thin palate, but above average creaminess for a lager. Tick.
