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.”

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with some very thin head. Aroma of bread and light citrus. Taste is cery lightly bitter. Mostly grains. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation but a lasting finish. Overall, meh. Its ok but not super.

Bottle as shown. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a medium frothy white head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is corn malt and honey. Medium mouthfeel with the flavor similar to the aroma and a bit soapy. Not much going on with this one.

12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Footed Pilsener glass at 36°. Color is a bright gold with good carbonation and a small tight head. Aroma is light with crystal malts and a touch of hops. It has a light crisp body that goes down with a smooth feel. Flavor is light grain giving a note of sweet corn then a hint of hops give a wisp of citrus. In the after taste a nice bitterness comes in leaving it clean. Overall this is not a style I like much, but for a Pilsener its not bad.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours a clear yellow body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is lightly hoppy, somewhat sweet, laced with corn. The flavor isn’t a whole lot better than most macro pale lagers, overly heavy on the corn and rather minimal on the hops. Not exactly what they promise on the label. Fairly heavy body for a pilsner, too much residual sweetness. Fizzy prickly carbonation. This was the biggest loser of the three.

Very disappointed in overall taste, but appearance and smell were pleasant. Almost a white bread aroma with a subtle hint of fruit. The right of amount of proper hops were lacking to give it optimum balance. Overall, I call it a smooth malt liquor at best.

Sour hay and green apple aroma. Smells like bud light Pours brilliantly clear light golden color with lasting white head Sweet bready flavor with light spicy hops in background. Medium bodied with medium high co2 sweet lingering finish My least favorite of the Budweiser batch series. Needs more hops. It is very sweet and some more noble hops might really help balance this beer out ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Disappointing start. Wanted a spicy noble hop nose and got nothing at all. The beer is almost odorless, and I’m a bit stymied. At most it smells like a slice of white bread. The label was correct with the color, deep gold. Head faded fast in the fluted pilsner glass. Malts are sweet and grainy, there’s a bit of hop bitterness at the finish, a little spicy leafy somewhere in the flavor, but its barely present, just enough to keep this from tasting like a malt liquor, which is basically what the malts come through like. Yes, its feels like a slightly cleaner version of a malt liquor, with slightly more hops to boot. Finishable but otherwise a real let down.
