Bottle. Pours dark gold with a small off-white head. Bready caramel aroma. Flavor is mild tropical fruit hops with a grainy backbone. More hops than any other AB product I’ve had but the grainy/cardboard finish ruins it.

11/29/13. 12oz bottle from a mix pack. Clear dark golden pour with a small khaki head that laces surprisingly well. Mild citrus and floral hop bite in the aroma as well as doughy malts. Not bad, actually. Much milder flavor, some fruitiness, weird yeasty aspect, fruity, and a hint of floral. Meh.

12oz twist-off bottle. Project 12, Second Edition. Clear, light orange color. Thin aroma. Smells of pale cereal malt. Taste is thin. Tastes like an American Lager. Finished with a grassy hop resin essence, you really have to be looking deep for it. (3894)

tnkw01 (1078) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle. Dark gold color. Medium head. Aroma is kind of bland nothing special. Taste, not really bad, well balanced but needs something.....

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle from Wegman’s Sterling. Pours golden with very little head. Not much head here. I think they dropped like 4 or 5 hops in an ordinary Budweiser and called it a day. True lack of ambition here and in all the Project Budweiser beers.

Dark yellow lager. Yep tastes like a plain ol lager. It’s OK but nothing worth picking up again.

csaso (1342) - Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle - small foamy head, dark straw color, piney and earthy hop aroma and flavor (more than expected), sweet malt backbone - overall definitely better than expected

Ratman197 (9654) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of bread and light citrus with a smooth finish.

wlajwl (3803) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Aroma is bready malts, citrus and an actual small hint of hops. The flavor is citrus, grainy malts and a mix of bitter and tangy in the finish.

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Clear dark gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is pine citrus and floral hops all in a pretty equal mix, a hint of bread and mineral notes. Flavor is sweet bread up front, some citrus, toast, pine, grass, oily, spicy booziness and light metallic notes. Light to medium body, oily feel and medium, blanketing carbonation. Not bad, but not exactly something I am likely to buy again. Hops, more. And less of whatever makes it taste/smell like greasy metal.
