2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 is a huge improvement to Busch. It still has that expected flavor but with much more backbone and malty body.

16 oz can shared by b3shine. Pours a clear copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy malts, some corn, caramel, grass, smooth lager, better than I thought it would be.

16oz can, thanks (thanks?) to b3shine for sharing. Date on bottom of the can is 27-may-14. Clear amber color, kind of darker, slightly brown. Thin off-white head. Dots of lace. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft crisp carbonation. Light slick finish. Caramel malt, light metallic mustiness, some dark fruit. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Not awful.

Pours a true copper color with a faint sweet malt aroma. Taste is clean with a minimal malt flavor. A smooth finish that had a clean aftertaste. No complex flavors, slight caramel and malt with a light toast film on the palate.

16 oz can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent copperish brown with foamy off-white head. Smells of lager yeast and some corn; maybe some cheap grain too. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A touch of caramel. Okay for what it is.

Big boy can split w/ Travlr (at his insistence). Light amber pour with a small head. Red apples, a bit of caramel. Really soft, not much to it. Taste is similar. caramel, glazed donut. Grain. Simple, easy to drink. Active carbonation. Actually better than I thought it would be.

Tastes great for a busch brand. Been through 2 twelve packs this past month, no complaints for a beer that is under 9 bucks a 12’er at wally world. Will buy again and will enjoy.

So I stop in the gas station cuz I wanted a dark lager to parboil some brats. All I had at home was IPA abd I wanted to save that for drinking. Saw the big can of this and noticed it was new. Wasnt sure how dark and caramel it would be so I got a can of brown ale to mix with. Of course i poured a sample for rating before cooking. Not great but quite a surprise and decent enough beer for the price. Copper color sure enough, no melanoidin components to speak of, but bready and even an actual suggestion of hop. Not watery but still leaning toward bland on the whole, at first seemed clean but then i noticed the typical a-b acetaldehyde yeast profile, i really dont know why they dont clean that up.

Weak, weak, weak. This lager is to beer what prison kool-aid is to fruit punch. The only thing it had going for it was the 5.7% alcohol. After sampling this beer, I elected to pour it on my garden but was stopped by my wife insisting that I not waste ’perfectly good’ beer. I admire her dedication to the cause.

I believe there was a hint of hops flavor in this can of horse urine. Overall, little taste, not even when I burped. This did have a smooth finish, but so does water. The aroma was deceptive--considerably stronger than the taste. I’m not sure what the appearance was since I drank it from the can (the design on the can is pleasant, though). It’s overly carbonated and it loses this quicker than most beers I’ve had. Overall--I don’t regret drinking it, but never will again.
