(Bottle) This was outstandingly flavorful for this type of beer. I find the other (low) reviews outright puzzling; are people prejudiced against this beer because of the association with Anheuser-Busch? Admittedly, this is the first good beer I’ve tried out of them. The hops had a strong aromatic quality, extremely complex...with a light fruity and floral scent evolving into a rich and complex aftertaste. This beer is a little sweet and not terribly bitter, but for this style, it is absolutely outstanding. And the organic factor has to give it a couple bonus points.

Nice gold color with a citris aroma. The taste is that of malt with a fruitish style hop that gives a nice balance. Can’t say it is because of organic ingredients or just a good brew master but this one is better than your typical domestic lager.

12oz brown bottle. This one pours a nice translucent amber with a thin film of off-white head. Smells slightly like caramel malt. Tastes sweet like caramel, chocolate and coffee malt with a hint of hop bitterness toward the finish. Not overpowering certainly, but a nice balance of subtle flavors. Lighter in body with a generous bit of carbonation, though it’s just slightly sticky or lingering. Overall a decent beer, though not the best example of the style. Not bad.

10/5/07 From the bottle. Aroma is corny pils malt with a faint sweet caramel note and no hop character. Appearance is a clear light gold with a well retained white head. Flavor is a grainy sweet malt forward, fairly round, pretty good for food pairing. Mouthfeel is very crisp with low body and a medium/high carb feel. Overall, better than I expected; not really the organic Budweiser I thought I’d get. It’s low on complexity, but seems well made.

So I expected this beer to be much hoppier than it is, being named "Wild Hop" but I guess it’s just because the hops are organic. It does have good flavor though. Has a dark golden-orange color, not quite amber. No head to speak of. Light aroma. High carbonation. I didn’t know this was an AB beer until I saw it here on Ratebeer, and it does almost seem like a Bud Light with much more flavor too it. Easily drinkable.

Poured from the bottle to a bright copper color with some carbonation, a thin off-white head that lingered and little lacing. I was able to detect some hoppy fruit, although aroma was faint. Flavor was hard to pick out anything dominant, but it did taste. Finish was some bitter dryness, though not as much as I expected when you have "Hop" in the name. But this was still a big step up for A-B.
