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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

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.

3.3 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.
