2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear dark copper to chestnut brown with a quickly dissipating, soapy khaki head. Aroma is sweet cereal, toast, metal, light toasty wood and caramel. Flavor is caramel, lots of weird artificial tasting toffee, bread crust, cereal and light metallic notes. Light body, oily feel throughout and medium carbonation. Not very good. Better than I would expect from A-B, but they have leagues to go to catch up to the little guys.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled from Rite Aid. Decent little bock . Lacking the richness of a good bock. The wood character is mostly non-existent. Not bad for Bud though.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle thanks to drowland. nose is full of that crystal malt instead of maillard reaction typical of AB, like in amberbock. taste is actually much better, but it just this bland sweet mess with no real bock character at all. tolerable and nothing wrong with it other than recipe.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle- Pours clear dark amber with a thin light tan head. Aroma is very amber aleish, maybe a little richer. The taste is similar, like a rich amber ale, no detectable beechwood chips, or chocolate, just caramel malt. Body is light and carbonation is medium high. You get what you expect with a Budweiser "craft beer".

12 oz bottle from the variety pack. Aroma is doughy, caramel. Pours clear amber with a collapsing off-white head. Taste is malty sweet with caramel prominent; a bit toasty. Highly carbonated, a little watery. Okay for style, but that’s not saying much.
