2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear bright golden with an OK white head. Aroma is grassy. Taste is a smooth sweet pale malt, biscuity, and a distinctive grassy character. A little hop bite after the swallow.
Editorial Comment: AB has been putting out these "Batch" 12 packs a couple of years now. I’m convinced they do it to capitalize on the seasonal 12 packs the crafts put out. They know no one would buy a special container of Bud, Bud Light, Busch and Busch light, so each year they take the Budweiser formula and doctor it a bit and call it a "Batch" special pack. They think we’re gullible enough to buy it in the hopes they’re going to present us with a few quality craft beers and some of us will fall for it. Sadly, I must say I’ve fallen for it the last two years, but no more!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden color with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of malt, hops, caramel, pine and some citrus. Similar aroma. Has a wet body with a dry and bitter finish. Easy to drink and rather refreshing. This batch of bear is better than the last.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
It poured a hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of sweet maltiness and notes of caramel. The taste was sweet and very malty combined with hops and a lightly roasted edge, leading to a dry and slightly roasted finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Champanes in Warren,
this beer had a very clear yellow-gold pour and presented a white two to three finger head that receded to a thin layer, the bubbles had a smidgen of yellow color to them,
this drink had a nose of malt and bread notes, hops were faint grass and light citrus, a little malt sweetness and a touch of powdered sugar,
it had flavors of light malt, bread and light hops, little sweetness, the finish had some bitterness,
the mouth feel was light and had a little creamy feel to it, it had soft to average carbonation,
a very light malt and hop beer, the hops were citrus and grass, personally, I do not prefer these kind of hops with a lager style beer, it was an ok drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, advance tasting. Pours a medium gold with a high, soft, fine-grained white head. Nose is stone fruit, a touch of hops resin, and a perfumed florality. Very soft on the palate, with definite hops notes; there’s still a perfume or incense note to it that softens and blurs the hops. A touch undercarbonated. Interesting, but I wouldn’t call it ’bold’.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
GABF 2013. Pours a clear golden appearance with an off white head. A bit juicy, light pineapple, fairly fruity hoppy aroma. Pretty fucken smooth and easy drinking herbal tropical fruity hoppy, light malty flavor. Not too bad.
