If by "bold" the company means an inoffensive amount of hops to gently influence the beverage, then yes this is bold.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Sour milk and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with large but short lasting head. Sweet barley malt and moderately bitter herbal hops flavor. Might as well buy Busch.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with white foamy head. Aroma is light citrus, a mint note maybe. Tastes like a better hopped bud. It’s nice but nothing extraordinary.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trade with Aurelius - thanks! Sparkling medium golden pour soft white head that leaves a ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma has a light spruce accent to it, a hint of white grapes. Full-bodied flavor that has some light citrus notes, a bit of mintiness, some light yeasty bready notes. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Pretty decent.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of bread, and mild hops....very faint. Very Pale, non existent head. First taste is rich sweet malt...nice. Finish is a bit off. Punch of spice hops but is very mild. Finish is a mild bitterness that tastes flat, not fresh. Tastes like a hoppy Bud, but the hops could use more punch. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bready aroma. Dark gold pour, thinner head. Malty bakery and cookie dough. The hops are nice and appear at the right time. There is very slight astringent taste in the finish. But overall one of the best things AB has ever done. Not bad at all! Bottle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Probably the best Budweiser product I’ve ever had. Reminds me of a Sierra Pale "light" almost had the right but they cheaped out on malt and subbed wit rice. Not enough body. But it’s worth a try.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweetish, bright west coast hoppy aroma. Clear, yellow. Standard Bud twistoff with a laboratory-type label. Sweetish up front, modest IPL-type hopping, ambiguous fruitiness. Light, crisp body - zippy finish. Better than Bud, not as good as Sam. Circle K, CCNE & Centerville.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear, dark gold with a short white head.
Light bread, light fruit aroma.
Taste is grainy, thinly malted, slightly leafy hops....metallic.
Sort of sad, that A-B continues to make these feeble attempts.....but hopefully they’ll keep trying.....blind squirrel theory.
