On tap only at Turner Field in Atlanta. Its a pretty standard amber ale, just a touch of hops and a subtle malty flavour. Itís much better than the macros they have on tap there, and kind of interesting that there is a beer brewed exclusively for a ballpark.

Sept. 19, 2008. Braves vs. Mets. Draft, $6.50 / pint. Pours copper color, creamy head. Aroma of malts. Initial flavors were of honeydew melon. Wow. Then it continued to taste like any old amber ale. Sweet malt character, woody hop finish. The best thing Turner Field has to offer. The beer was definitely better than the game. Braves lost 9-5.

On draught @ The Chop House. Poured an decent looking amber with just a small head. Aroma was of caramel malts and some bread. Flavors were a bit subdued but pleasant. A bit of sweetness from the caramel malts. Drank smooth, well carbonated. Given the bleak selection at Braves games this is the way to go.

Draft at the 755 club at Turner Field. I went out on a limb and tried the only thing on draft I had never heard of and was pleasantly surprised. Poured a deep orange/amber (hard to tell in the plastic pint glass they gave me) with a pillowy white head. Mostly sweet malt and corn in the nose but some caramel and slight notion of a hop showed up at some point. Body was mostly sweet malts throughout with an off-dry finish. Good carbonation, very drinkable, a no-brainer for Turner Fieldís draft list. Surprised this is an AB product.

On tap at the Braves bar at the ATL airport. Pours a brown amber color. Not much of a head. Aroma of alcohol and malts. Fizzy mouth feel.

When I heard this beer was from Anheuser-Busch I was skeptical. But since itís only served at Turner Field in the Chop House I had to try it. I was pleasantly surprised. Came out of the tap a medium deep amber color with a slightly off white head. Roasted/earthen aroma with a hint of almond. Pretty decent mouth feel, being fresh helps a ton. Nice bitter taste with an after taste of slight honey. Overall I really enjoyed it for what it is and I will definitely have it again at the next game!!

Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Aroma is malty, a hint of roast, some crystal malt, and some spicy hops. Flavor is malty, roast, crystal malt, and a bitter peppery finish.

Before craft beer was available at Turner Field, Tomahawk was my jam. Virtually scentless. Pours a very pale brown. Honestly, this is just a sweet mess. More carbonation would probably help to mask how utterly average this beer tastes Draft - Turner Field - Atlanta, GA

On draught at Chophouse in plastic cup. Pours a deep copper with ample foamy crown that has very decent retention and leaves lots of fingery lacing on the plastic cup. Aroma is malty, with toffee and some some adjunct on the nose (either corn or rice), with only a slight hint of grassy hops, but a slight EtOH burn. Flavour is sweet malt, a bit of roasted character, close to toffee, and finishes cleanly with a semi-dry hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy with moderate carbonation that is sufficient to bring out hop flavours in the mouth without overpowering the malt character of the beer. The only beer I can drink at Turner Field. Unfortunately I have only found two locations in the ballpark that sell this beer, one of them being the Chop House and the other one a stand on the lower level of the right field terrace. I’m sure they have this elsewhere, like the 755 Club but they should distribute it more throughout the stadium!!!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2008
Draft at Turner Field. Pours a clear copperish-amber color with a foamy, off-white head. Left some thick lacing behind on the plastic cup it was served in. The aroma is pretty non-descript, showing mostly lightly toasted caramel malts and faint floral hops. Flavors were mostly the same, with perhaps a touch of spiciness from the hops coming through. Thin bodied with a surprisingly smooth, almost nitrogenated mouthfeel. Definitely the best option at the ball park, and better than most AB products, but still pretty boring overall.
