2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very faint sweet malt aroma, pours a clear yellow, with a quickly vanishing white head. AB must have a much different definition of hop aroma then I do. There’s a bit of spice and a touch of spice in the beer, but it’s very short lived, with almost no body. It’s a drinkable beer, but that’s about all that can be said for it.
Old old notes. Bottle. Kind of a citrusy caramel-pepper mess. Not too impressive, even for a michelob brew. ads135 (5215) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 18, 2012
I’m surprised this beer isn’t retired. I haven’t seen it in a long time. Tried it on a hike across Bandelier National Park with Paul. Funky aroma, very stale. A bit of citrus, but not enough to overwhelm the off flavors. Watery body. Niko100 (3012) - Chicago, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Hazy amber color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of malt, & some spice; Flavor of slight sweet malt, some hops, and light citrus; Not terrible... italarican (1606) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Shitty diacetyl bomb. Bland yet rancid at the same time. Impressive, and not in a good way. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2012
I drank this purely for the rating. I have to say, that there was not much of anything going on in this beer. A slight bit of spice and fruit, but very thin and bland.

A bit disappinted at this beer. Was expecting more, but found it to have very little taste and aroma. Ok to try once. beermanusa (77) - California, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Golden pour without much head. Kind of thin mouthfeel. Not much lacing on glass. Fruity taste, but nothing memorable about it either. Smell was fruity as well, the smell was actually better than the taste. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2011
translucent gold with just a ring of bubbles, medium body with medium-high carbonation.jcweaver (770) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2011
aroma: peppery cascade-citrus hop aromatics, a bit of caramel malt sweetness. clean and pleasant.
taste: toffee malt sweetness, sweet orange, some leafy hop bitterness, a hint of astringent grain hunk, and another slightly odd note i can’t quite pin down.
Bottle. Pours a yellowish color with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts with a hint of honey and some light hops. Flavor is pretty dull. Mostly sweet, light malts, a little honey and some faint hops. Drinkable at best.

Poured from bottle into snifter glass on Anheuser Busch Brewmaster tour. Golden color with medium white head. Thin-bodied, metallic, and overly carbonated as typical with Anheuser Busch products, but I will acknowledge some ale yeast esters and improved hops aroma. Definitely better than Bud. I don’t get the marketing angle, though, the cheesy name and graphics. What’s the target market here?
