bottle thanks to swalden_28. poured a clear amber with a beige head that didnt last to long. aroma of caramel, hops, and some floral notes. flavor is pretty much the same. did have a nice bitter in it though. medium body with high carb. i was surprised with this. pretty refreshing.

Clear copper color, small cream color head and moderate lacings. Aroma is lightly malty, some floral hop scent. Taste is a surprise. Rich spicy malts with no real hop presence until the finish where the bitter semi-dry taste emerges. Nicely balanced overall. Somewhat too bitter for the Amber category, but pretty close. Never tasted the Cascade hops, seems more like a european variety. Better than I expected.

It’s real easy to diss this beer right off label...faux-craft, bud crap ale, ripoff ale...actually I like that. Bud’s Ripoff Ale actually is not that bad, reddish ale, slight hop flavor, good mouthfeel. A superior alternative than the original, but again that it is not saying much. To sum it up, if the stock market gets any lower, I think I will pluck down some coin to get a six pack.....

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a nice, creamy light tan head. Has a nice hop taste, with some caramel and malt coming through. Has a good mouthfeel and is well balanced. Aroma is much the same. I like this beer, much better than what I was expecting. It is very drinkable and is easy to enjoy. I would not mind revisiting this one.

Nice pour with a thick head that screams to be drank. The hops are mild and easy across the palate. Impressive offering from AB for an "American" Ale. Yes, Americans as a whole like the more mute flavors. Superb Marco!

they can do better...and should. expecting a beer that would be a slightly more malted up bud with more sweetish malt clean and with a tight finish. and somewhere in there the hint of hop in the German style only weaker. the color to be nut brown like with a less than moderate but carbonated palate. the carbonation weak after about 2 minutes. that’s what i got, hooray!

I thought the aroma on this beer was pretty decent, I thought it had a nice hoppy aroma to it...nothing over the top but impressive for a Budweiser product. Otherwise, I thought the beer was a bit lacking in flavor, it was just very uninteresting in my opinion. In no way was it bad, but nothing really stood out to me. The flavor is more on the malty side of things whereas the aroma is more on the hoppy side. In general, it was not a bad beer, very drinkable, but mostly just average or slightly higher than average to me.

Should have spent the marketing money on product development. As bad as I feared. No aroma. Tastes like a boubon and water. Maybe a bit of Bass Ale flavor if you add two pints of water to each pint of Bass. I’m not sure who they are marketing this to, as my Bud fiend buddy doesn’t want to try it because he say’s it will be too strong.

Bottle at Village Pub, KY. Poured a clear deep amber color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Medium sweet malty and small hop aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with an medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Better than my expectations.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Little to no aroma. Orangish brown color. Nutty, fruity, with a light malt flavor and a dryish finish. Generally weak with a thin palate and little duration. Better than Bud but still needs to be solidified in all areas.
