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.”

Tasted from a 12oz screw-top bottle into a tulip glass. It poured a crystal-clear deep golden color, creamy white foam with lace. Nice. Very nice aromas of sweet malt, caramel, mildly flowery/resiny noble hops, faint peppery yeast phenols. Surprisingly delicious aromas. The flavor however, was horrible: rough, metallic, mushy cardboard, flat, oxidized, tomato sauce, solvent, as bad as any gas station malt liquor you’ve ever had. I’ve never experienced a beer where the aroma and the flavor were so opposite. I can’t even comprehend it. They just can’t help it, can they? Just can’t let themselves make a good beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a light gold with a thin bubbly head, aroma is of bread with a slight amount of fruit, the flavor is pretty bland overall, crisp finish with a little bit of bread and cracker in it, light on the hops, meh, drinkable.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 12275-WA95. It pours a yellow to golden color with a fizzy head that lingers a little longer than the other two sample styles in the 12 pack. The aroma is quite grainy with a clean crisp hop note. The body is creamy and light. The taste has a sour grainy kind of character that I cannot quite define with a touch of honey or caramel. I like the concept of these Project Batch beers and maybe they did taste that way in the 19th Century but for the most part they remind me of Budweiser with a bite. Maybe that is the plan.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear bright gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and a bit of grass. Taste is similar. Mild pilsener. OK.

Bottle. The body is a rich orange tinted amber with a thin white head. The nose is earthy and deep with some musk. There is also some perfumed pear type fruit sweetness. This is a nice decently hoppy pils with a leathery and paper type finish. There is also some hay and a little bit of bread crust. Actually, this is a decent pils and something I would want to try again. Just hoppy enough to stay interesting with a relatively light body. Surprising that it is 6% abv as it is smooth and clean.

Pours a golden color with a thick white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of light malt and grass, tastes the same as it smells. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall this is a decent tasting macro pilsener.

scooterbub (1031) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 20, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice gold with a 1 inch white head that lasts/ Taste is of malt, caramel, honey, grass, some hops and is a touch sweet. Similar, lighter aroma. Has a great body for a lager. The finish is mostly clean. Easy to drink and wuite enjoyable. The best of the three and worth having again.
