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.”

Thanks "Cheap" for this brew. Nice pilsner. Hop flavor, grassy notes, did not think it was 6% abv. Smooth, clean, crisp brew.

I went into this beer with no expectations. I never buy bud branded anything. I won’t turn down if offered one though. I felt this beer truly surprised me. I described this to a friend as Budweiser if Budweiser was actually a real beer. It was nothing to write home about, but I’d reach for it over a lienenkugel lager. Very simple lawnmower style. A suprsingly beautiful golden yellow with a quickly dissapating head. Flavors of bread and sweet honey. Slight metallic taste on the end but nothing to be considered offensive. Nice medium body. I’d buy a six pack in the summer if available. Quit brewing Budweiser and brew this.

Budweiser Batch No. 63118 has a thick, creamy, off-white head, lot of thin lacing left on the glass, a clear, reddish-gold appearance, and a good amount of streaming bubbles in the beer. The aroma is subdued, but one can detect light, sweet grains and fruit (think of apricot). The taste is also very fruity (one wonders if fruit is not, in fact, added to the beer), with white bread crust, sweet grain, light brown sugar, and a slight hop bite at the end. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Budweiser Batch No. 63118 finishes crisp, refreshing, and not too dry. Drinkability is high with this one, and not much alcohol is detected, except in the back of the throat after a few sips. Overall, this is another interesting offering from InBev. RJT

A deep gold pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is light with some faint floral hops. The medium body has smooth texture and lively carbonation. It has a sweet taste, but there is some background mild bitterness in the finish. I’m sure the haters will be out in force, but objectively I think this is a decent beer.

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

bhensonb (11056) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours dark gold with a large off-white head that tried to lace. Aroma is clean with touch of pale malt and some light noble hop. Med body. Flavor is bready/sweet. Very little hop. However, it is fairly tasty; drinks well.

Braudog (5742) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Bright yellow, almost the same color as the label coloring. Budweiser’s head. Light Bohemian aroma. Drinks with a musty, biscuity base, but is topped with a little bit of a Teutonic bitterness. Not bad, actually. (#4853, 12/9/2012)

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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a tiny white head. The head fades very fast leaving almost no lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a caramel smell with some lighter notes of toffee and bread. Mixed with these aromas are some very light notes of an almost candy nature as well as some light citrus hop smells. Taste – The taste begins mostly bready with hints of caramel and a citrus hop. As the taste advances more hop of a grapefruit nature come to the tongue as well as some flavors of a light corny taste. In the end a mix of malt with a light sweetness of caramel and corn and a citrus bitterness sit to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the very average side in terms of both its carbonation and thickness. Both are rather appropriate for the style was well as the flavor profile, keeping it drinkable and more refreshing. Overall –For the price it is a fairly good brew. The flavor at the end is a tad off with the mix of a somewhat corn and bittered citrus taste, but overall its easy drinking and rather refreshing.

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.
