Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with nice bubble action and a pillowy white head that leaves plenty of lacing. The love affair stops there. Aroma is that of sweet gumballs, some wet copper pennies. Flavor is artificially sweet with some corn syrup notes, a hint of wet paper, some green apples. Mouthfeel is sticky, but not in a good way. Reminds me of a refined malt liquor. Expected just a bit more considering the hype.

Panama City Beach, Fl - Carousel Market - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour, light off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is pretty much neutral, a hint of nuttiness. Flavor is mellow, with some light caramel notes, a bit of toffee sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Decent.

i used to drink this all the time
not at all, no flavor and they use rice instead of good grains.
also, they use GMO in it, no thanks.
this beer is one of the best tasting beers I have ever had. I was always a Budweiser drinker, but have since switched to this tasteful beer. It is hard to find at our local bars and liquor stores but I can find it at a couple towns within 80 miles so I stock up. PugUglyBrewer (806) - - MAR 23, 2017
I hate to admit, but in may just enjoy this bud a little more than I should. Has a little alcoholic kick. Refined and refreshing. A step in the right direction and a nice setup toward trying bolder amber brews. Cirtak (1) - Silo Heights drive, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2017 does not count
The only beer in the arsanal of Bud beers that is truly worth buying, trying & enjoying. I am 71 and enjoy a good amber removing it from the line is stupid and insulting. JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2017 As Batch 91406; Copper to bronze in color. Moderate sized, cream colored head. Decent lace. Lightly toasted raisin bread scent. Some grains and hints of alcohol. Spicy lager comes to mind with the first quaff. Woody and grainy. Drink these cold and you should likely be mildly unoffended. 11/12

Ar - 4 Ap - 2 Fl - 5 P - 4 O - 9 Rate 2.4
Modest white head that diminished to a single layer of bubbles above the dark golden to light amber liquid. Grains and hints of alcohol in the scent. Light caramel flavors. A nice feel, with some real body and a tight, tiny bubbled zip. Clean, but boring. 2/13
Pours a crystal clear golden brown from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma and taste of mild sweet maltiness and mild adjunct, clean lager crispness. Budweiser with some extra malt and color. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle on Miami Beach. Nice amber body with slight head. Nose is malty, grainy some caramel. Taste is similar with caramel, malts, a tad sweet. Dry in the finish. Cajun (549) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle - Pours amber, white head. Pretty much a Budweiser with more alcohol. I can’t tell that the flavor is much better, nor that there’s more alcohol for that matter. mjmoen (610) - - MAY 29, 2016
A-. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Like a Budweiser with more flavor oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours a nice golden amber color. Aromas of malts, hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor has a nice crisp taste with a clean dry finish.
