COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer was first brewed in St. Louis by brewmaster Jim Bicklein and was developed in collaboration with brewmaster Katie Rippel from Fort Collins, Colo. “The original Budweiser brewery is, of course, here in St. Louis, so we wanted to honor our brewing heritage with a beer that uses ingredients that German immigrants, like our founder Adolphus Busch, would have used when they came to the United States,” Bicklein said. “In this pilsner we use the same types of Hallertau and Tettnang hops commonly used in St. Louis during the late 1800s.”

Bottle. Pours a deep gold with white head. Not much aroma, signs of pilsner and faint earthy/grassy hop with light malt background. Flavor is much the same with a tad more character with a light grainy and biscuit note. Light body with high carbonation. Overall, not really all that bad but not a top 10 choice either. Well balanced but kinda almost dead in the water (figuratively speaking). Certainly wouldn’t turn one down, a no brained beer (dont have to think about it and not much going on either)

A deep gold pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is light with some faint floral hops. The medium body has smooth texture and lively carbonation. It has a sweet taste, but there is some background mild bitterness in the finish. I’m sure the haters will be out in force, but objectively I think this is a decent beer.

10/30/12. 12oz bottle from Five Points, from the mix 12-pack. Clear, dark golden pour. With a moderately hefty pour, a nice frothy, 3-finger head develops that cuts to a few millimeters but sticks and laces in small streaks... certainly presentable enough. Very light aroma with a dusty creaminess, pale malts, corn chips, and a hint of sweetness. The flavor boasts a more pronounced sweetness with touches of creamy corn, a teensy bit of a slightly tart apple aspect, corn chips, biscuits, pale malts, and a lingering hint of metal. I was totally prepared to be able to enjoy this in spite of what it is and where it’s made, and it’s not completely awful, but it’s certainly nothing special.

Tastes like diluted honey and iodized salt. Crisp and foamy with the delightful aftertaste of stale candy from Fisherman’s Wharf.

Poured into a glass from 12 oz bottle. Extremely thin white head which disappears almost instantly. Golden in color. Has very little aroma all. Lightly sweet and nothing really else to say about it. I guess on a very hot day it might quench your thirst but besides that no point drinking it.
