1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
bouteille brune de 341ml.
brassée par le speciality brewing group of anheuser-busch à merrimack.
belle couleur ambrée-cuivrée, odeur de caramel, de malt. classique pour ce genre de produit. (assez léger le tout) en bouche la même chose, caramel, malt, produit de méga-brasserie pour compétitionner avec les micro et ça ne marche pas.

if memory serves...the bottle said a-busch, i got this at a convenience store ’round christmas circa 98’ in a desperate last ditch attempt to find a decent beer,it had been sitting there for ages probably,but was/is still the only half-ass good anheuser i’ve e’er had. I imagine this is what Dick Cheney drinks when they bring him a cage full of "wildlife" or one of his buddies to shoot at.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewery in Merrimack New Hampshire. Amber colour with a medium average lasting head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt and little hoppiness. Flavour of toasted malt and hops with some sweetness. For an A-B product this is the very best I have tasted from them. And it is enjoyable actually, though somewhat thin for an amber ale. Nice label!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of malts, caramel, and some hops. Flavor is bland, with some malt and hop hints. A good try by AB trying to fool people like Miller with RedDog.

Bud’s lame attempt to tap into the micro craze. Actually, it’s not reprehensible; it does have some hint of malt in it. But it IS made by Bud...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating from memory. I don’t know why this beer just popped into my head, but it did. It was an early attempt at fooling people into thinking that they were drinking a micro. It wasn’t half bad, especially at the time when good beer was harder to find than it is now.

I am remembering this from memory as one beer that A-B made that wasn’t half bad. Kind of sucks it’s not around anymore. ;)
