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.”

Pours a crystal clear medium golden color with a decent sized bone white head that persists nicely leaving a fair amount of lace. The aroma is sweet and malty with light honey and grain notes to it. Hints of spicy hops barely break through the wall of malty sweetness. The flavor is sweet and malty with lots of light sugar and honey with a touch of apple and a hint of odd earthiness that seems a bit out of place. Very little hop flavor or bitterness is perceived by me. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. I found this to be a bit to sweet and pretty boring.

Pours a deep gold with a white head quickly dissipating. The nos eis non-existent. The palate is full wiith a faint malty sweetness finishing with anice hops bite. It is fuller bodied and has more barley taste than Bud. Nice.

For a pilsner, this is a pretty solid effort. Doesn?t have much of a smell but it has that classic pilsner taste with a nice hint of hops

Bottle. Corn and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Mildly sweet barley malt flavor. Basically Budweiser with a bit more body.

12 ounce bottle found in the limo for my wedding, left over from the prior nights limo riders. Drank from the bottle, aromas and tastes are grass, and sweet malt. Not that great in my opinion, but a new and free tick.

12oz bottle 11/13/12 12pk (Dominicks)-46° in Footed Pilsner-Pours a medium golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, hops, and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more hops and sweetness on the back end. This light bodied brew is another simple basic Bud product.

Bottle. Ehh nothing special. It still taste like it’s made with corn. However, there was a slight flavor resembling hop and caramel.

Clear gold to amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Somewhat sweet and toasty malt in the nose along with some grassy, lighty floral hops. Flavor is cereal, toast, bread... then some nasty vegetal and off, boozy (fusel maybe) notes come in. Light body, dry feel and light, fairly sharp carbonation and a lingering feeling on the palate, sort of an odd, boozy, spicy sweetness that I associate with fusel alcohol, but it seems to last forever. Too bad, the aroma showed at least a sliver of promise, but it tastes like cheap malt liquor after a couple drinks permeate my taste buds.

Faint aroma of malt...nice light amber color. Sweet malt is nice in front. Finishes sweet with tiny amounts of hops. Highly carbonated.....refreshing. Flavor is very singular....but not bad.
