3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle picked up in some random store in San Fransisco and brought back to the UK to review at leasure. Poured into a ’Back Forty’ Beer Co straight sided glass on 3 May 2013.
Regular lager look: golden, clear and clean, white head.
The aroma was semi-sweet floral and fruity: a lot more aromatic than most pilsner/lager beers.
The taste was also semi-sweet with a fruity feel within the flavours. I like sweeter brews and this was fine for me.
If this beer had a non-Budweiser label its scores would be a lot higher: it deserves to be appreciated more.
Well done Bud: one of your best beers that I’ve had anyway.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, dark golden appearance with a foamy, khaki head. Fairly sweet, a bit fruity, Angel Food cake, bready aroma. A bit floral and just a touch bitter hoppy, but overall pretty well balanced despite a bit sweetness. Slightly fruity, light pineapple flavor. Sure, I could probably get WBW on this.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sour, tangy and industrial. The flavor was sour and tangy with notes of bead and honey though a touch bitter. Medium length tangy bread and honey finish. Moderately full bodied. Fairly pleasant.

Thanks "Cheap" for this brew. Nice pilsner. Hop flavor, grassy notes, did not think it was 6% abv. Smooth, clean, crisp brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and caramel with fresh oak and grassy accents.. pleasant. The flavor found mostly honey at the core, with orange zest and grassy bitterness around.. finished dry and grainy. Light-bodied and grainy on the palate.. ok feel, and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Two fingers of head on a clear, golden colored body. Nice head retention too.
The aroma is faint, some grain?
The taste has a mild lemon bitterness, smooth and nice though.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Not amazing, but descent enough.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Wegman’s. Pours dark straw with minimal white head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is corny grainy pale malt, mild hops. Tastes of swmi tart pale malt, grainy, with hops and some off lactic flavor late. This one sucks, and if this is the best InBev can do after 63000+ tries, then it is time to hang it up.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not really too much to brag about here. Hops are faint, malts nearly nonexistent. It’s a pilsener from AB sooooo..
