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.”

bhensonb (11246) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2012

Tmoney99 (10800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met by a soft drinkable beer from a soft style.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2013
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.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a large foamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grain, corn and floral hops. The taste is sweet grainy malts, corn, grassy hops. Thin-medium bodied.

3fourths (8099) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012 bottle. clear sparkling gold body with a tall-building white head, large bubbled, diminishing into a two-finger foam layer. quiet and simple nose, mostly clean other than for touches of ammonia and bleach; airy, dusty cobweb yeast sniffed from the dying head. very quiet and basic nose, but not offputting; even the the ammonia is mild enough to almost ignore. medium-light body with a round, full carbonation presence on the front, but it quickly turns to burnt popcorn-flavored malts, egg shell / sulfur yeast and both tasting and feeling like chalk / shale. sourish green / wet hops; no lovely hallertauer touches, no tettnanger spice, only husky pilsner malt and rough, raw, green astringent hop bitterness. Bitburger kills this stuff.

DocLock (7911) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2013
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.

shrubber85 (7727) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Corn and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Mildly sweet barley malt flavor. Basically Budweiser with a bit more body.

Ughsmash (7153) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2013
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.
