1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear golden coloured body with a thin, very fast-dying white head. Aroma of pale malt, some light sugars and a hint of earth - not much else noticeable. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent cardboard and malt notes with nothing else but more funkiness and cardboard. Aftertaste shows some light earthiness, a bit of alcohol and that unpleasant maltiness that is just stale and dank. Overeall, a pretty bad offering, but that’s pretty much to be expected from this brewery, isn’t it? I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-December-2012 for US$0.98 sampled at home in Washington on 02-February-2013.

Barely any aroma. Copper color. Taste is pretty good. Caramel, vanilla, oak...a little watered down, but pretty good. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Of the three Project 12 beers I tried, this is the best one. Color was deep amber. Nice head. Taste was mild, slight oaky vanilla. Aroma was grains, watery, vanilla. Nice.

Hate to get overly simple on this one, but if they didn’t try hard, neither will I. Taste like Bud Ice aged on oak.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
In aroma getting same sour hay and green apple scent that's found in other macro brews also getting faint hint of vanilla and bread
Pours a brilliantly clear gold with quickly disappearing head
Lots of vanilla flavor up front and all the way to the end. Really mellow vanilla though. Also some bready malts and spicy hops
Medium bodied with medium co2 clean quick malty finish
Aroma not so great but beer looks appetizing and the vanilla in the flavor is really smooth and enjoyable

Bottle courtesy of my friend Noel - thanks! Aroma is sweet malt, caramel and light vanilla. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, light grains and faint vanilla. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more caramel, sweet malt, grains and light vanilla.

This pours a clear, medium amber color with a fast diminishing head. There is a slight grain and bourbon scent. The taste is smooth with hints of bourbon and vanilla. Just something new from Anheuser-Busch that really isn’t all that new.

OK, as an engineer, I like punching in a number to search for this stuff, every beer should have anumber on the label to search by. Decent pour and whoever, said this was a dark lager is so funny, ignorantly funny. Yes quite smooth out of the botlle. Nice thin creamy head makes it fairly attractive. Good over all taste impressions, smooth and goes down easy. Reminds me of bud poured right out of the tap into a styrofoam cup, yep has that arome, clean and crisp, no ill olfactory. You would not know this is over 5%, hides the alky well. Yes, smooth easy and well behaved, has manners and it will be easy for any lager lover to drink. Good overall beer drinken experience. A little more sharp than the 91406, heheh, but just as mannered. Theser are slight variations on the same style. CO2 is present and much appreciated. Finish almost has a hint of banana in it. Does come across as mild as many wheat beers.
