Poured a dark copper with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts/grains with slight fruity hint. Taste was predominately a mix of malts with some other roasted grains in the background and a light hop finish. Mouth was average at best. Overall, fairly drinkable.

This review applies to the 12oz bottles version of this beer. Finally the macros are striking back against crafts with a value beer that accomplishes what they previously were unable to do: a beer that while still mass produced is a fantastic value proposition vs. crafts with good taste and a relatively higher abv vs. most other mass market domestics. This is my new go-to beer in the winter: it’s dark, affordable, tasty and goes down smooth. Doesn’t pour with much head, either.

Pours dark copper with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet with grain. Taste is a little bland with a bit of caramel and grain. The aftertaste disappears quickly.

adnielsen (9533) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Big fucken can, thanks to Iowa for selling for basically free. Pours a clear burnt golden appearance with a big cream colored head. Sweet corn, fake caramel, vanilla, and light apple in the aroma. Medium light body. Some residual sweetness. Dull grass and corn flavor. I suppose it’s inoffensive but not something I’d want to drink on a regular occasion.

EtTuCthulhu (1173) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 13, 2014
The beer pours a clear copper color with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly, but the aroma is overwhelmingly corn with only a hint of caramel malts. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet, and the the aftertaste has the telltale signs of a macro lager due to the emerging yeasty corn flavor. The palate combines a lively carbonation, slick texture, and medium-light body. Overall, it’s better than I expected, but it’s not particularly good.

Shanebrews (201) - Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2014
The beer pours a lovely copper color with very light carbonation, retaining no head. The aromas are lightly roasted grain and the flavor is the same. The beer is very smooth and clean but there is no bittering. Similar to Coors’ Extra Gold.

I see what they were trying to do here. Its a step up than the normal Busch, the golden brown yet transparent color is a surprise. very sweet malt no little substance and no hop bitter at all. different yet nothing special

Can 25oz. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced toasted aroma. Medium rsweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Soft drinkable brew.

If this was rated against other Busch and Bud products it would rate much higher. This is not a craft beer but nice smooth beer which is not as hoppy as some of the other Busch/Bud products. Love the color but lacks a good head. I hope it sticks around because it is my new choice beer where domestic non craft beers are sold for taste and definitely price. Just took another drink, maybe i should have rated...a little higher!

Excellent...much smoother than Bud Black Label, and I love that beer. The aroma is pleasing, and the color is something I have not seen before. Very flavorful, and I will make thins my beer of choice.
