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.

2.7 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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just a bit more hoppy flavor than the other Project beers but still very light and underwhelming.
