Bottle. Clear amber color with a small white head that diminished quickly. Small hoppy grain aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Small bitter flavor with light finish. Not my selection. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2005
Sampled on tap at Maxfields. Fizzy yellow beer with a white head. Bizarre lemony aroma with rotten eggs. Standard lager taste, a bit sweet and really boring. Good thing it was free. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Apple juice body with medium off-white head. Aroma is mild grassy with minimal sweetness. Taste is bland, mildly sweet with the hint of grassy. Clean light body. Pretty inoffensive beer, which is a noticeable improvement for AB. BeerandBlues2 (13706) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Aroma is trademark Anheuser maltiness with bitter notes. Rich golden color with swiftly rising bubbles, extremely sparkly, and no head. Sweetly bitter flavor that leaves behind a very metallic aftertaste. Light and somewhat refreshing palate. Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2004
This is the first time I have paid my own money for an A-B beer in living memory. Whoever these top brewmasters from around the world are, they obviously spent countless hours and spared no expense...coming up with the name. The beer is below average, which is the highest praise I have ever given a macro. Pours a clear and bubbly gold color with a thin white head and little lacing. Mild hops aroma. Light and crisp with a weak hops flavor and maybe even some nuttyness. The finish is thin and lightly bitter, and it seems they are hoping for the Pilsner Urquell skunk after this sits on the shelves in the green bottle for awhile. Luckily I got a fresh bottle. Satisfied my curiosity but I won’t ever get it again.

So disappointing. Not surprised, just disappointed... considering I paid over $1.00 for the bottle.
I opened the green bottle and a skunk jumped right out of it at me. It went for the jugular, but I fended it off. I would like to say this is a better brew than Michelob or Budweiser, but I really can't. There's no excuse for this beer being lightstruck since it was brewed in America and is pretty darned fresh. The only difference between this beer and all other A-B products is that I didn't get the adjunct headache associated with all their other brews. Oh, and the hops are actually detectable.
Weak brew. Don't spend your dollars on this one... whether they be Euro or American. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2008
God i cant figure out what the hell is wrong with AB...reading the label makes you think it might be good. well its bullshit. and its terrible. watery, grainy and nasty. FAIL(again) DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Slightly more palatable than regular Bud, with a few extra points for aroma, taste, and overall. The green bottle is a typical AB cost-saving insult, proving that they will never learn, and all their talk about using the best ingredients is pure bullshit. Sorry, Augie, try again.

who says this is the answer to heineken??? i mean, really..i have never heard it before and there are no similarities, except the green bottle. Had on tap at an Oktoberfest in Galveston...ya i know...pours a deep yellow slight slight tan colour, some small head but there...better bud smell...good subtle clkean bitterness, very drinkable and one of the better A B’s when it comes down to lager. not bad but keep trying! radagast83 (8315) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle. For what it is, I thought that this was much better than what you’d expect from Anheuser. Their reputation would be much higher if this was their ’standard’ brew instead of bud/bud light.
