2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was lagerish. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering mild malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild lager mild hops crisp and breads. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden color. Sort of like an ipa, but not as pale as most. A sweet start and a lighter watery finish with some bitterness. Tasted on 12/7/2013. 12 pack assortment was $12.99.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Kind of an odd brew. The hop character seems to clash a bit. It is drinkable and somewhat refreshing, but it was my least favotite of the three in this pack.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Btl pours crystal clear golden color with a thick tight head that fades quickly leaving a small ring of lace. Smells of sweet caramel,perfume,flowers and some sort of vegetable aroma,maybe cooked corn. Tastes of sweet malt and lightly bitter hops with a little graininess. Light body, smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a light bitter finish. A clean,crisp lager that could have had potential if its taste lived up its nice flowery aroma. Not to bad, just has a weird after taste.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle- Pours clear rust golden with a one finger crackly white head that reduces immediately. Aroma is spicy hops, citrus, very floral. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t match the aroma, it takes the floral aroma and amps it up a 100%, too much, not much hop presence either. It is smooth and mellow, much better than the pale lagers they are known for, but still nothing interesting here.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks and tastes like... Beer! (As opposed to yellow fizzy stuff) although the nose has a bit of an adjunct beer vibe going on, the hops are present. Real barley malt is noticeable on the palate, and the swallow has both hops and malt. The finish is a bit thin, but all in all, great compared To your standard Bud. It even is a bit better as it warms up beyond fridge temp (!)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from the variety pack. Aroma is chalky, wet river rock, cinnamon bears, caramel. Pours clear gold with a collapsing white head. Taste is nice and hoppy, surprisingly. It’s like an IPL. Starts out sweet and finishes with a light bitterness and spicy hoppiness. Body is thin, texture watery. I’m really surprised here to actually taste hops in something with the word Budweiser on the label. Second thoughts: the hoppiness first detected in the flavor starts to go downhill and the malt kind of takes over. Still, not bad for a Bud product.
