In the flip cap big bottle. Let’s speak of the good things first. It’s a great bottle for homebrewing. Was the packaging worth ten bucks? Nope. This is another fleecing job by ABV. I truly think that I enjoyed Steel Reserve High Gravity more (certainly at SR’s price of $0.78 per quart). Budwiser owes me a refund. You can dress a pig up, but it’s still a pig.

Pours a clear golden with a well-lacing frothy white head. Potent alcohol and noble hop aroma has some grainy corn to it. Starts dry and thin with lots of adjunct flavor and burning alcohol. Slightly better than regular Budweiser, but charging $12 for this is absolutely rediculous. Thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing his bottle so I didn’t have to waste my money buying a bottle. There are a lot of better malt liquors for much cheaper. BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Smelled and tasted of light spices, over ripe fruit, very Begianesque. But there was also a malt liquor quality there, corn, sugar etc. Better than I thought it would be. Kevin (2217) - Montana, USA - DEC 7, 2005
dark yellow with a huge white head. smell, is well, sugary corn syrup that has been watered down. a sip delivers powdred candy. a smooth alcohol presence. metallic taste to this, no scratch that, it is not metal, it is saccahrin. sappy mouthfeel something like turnips that are dirty lingers. highly biting hop like taste that isn’t very bitter, but this is not cloying at least. i’ll never have this again, but it was worth a shot.

It is absolutely ridiculous the amount of hyperbolic advertising that went into a package that contains so little to justify it. Orange/yellow spectrums for the body. The thick, malty palate, rich and dense, is the best thing happening here. The aroma and flavor, on the other hand, are nothing except for a bit of latex rubber (seriously). This is basically a malt liquor just without the crass sweetness that you get there. I have always assumed that the brewers at the Macros are pretty competent and like good beer, only that they’re suckered into jobs that pay well with benefits rather than going into their own business. But if this is what they produce when they put their best effort into it, I really begin to wonder. Maybe they’re just not very good brewers.

This beer is better than its smaller weaker little brother. This is a great rating. Lots of beerx qualities in this one. I dedicate this rating to people, who just like this beer, dress up pretty andr make themselves seem like they are so deep and important yet when it comes down to it, theya are just cheap and shallow and smell like alcohol. Man, this is way more than 75 characters.y bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
(Bottle) Pours an amber body with a moderate white head. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Flavor of caramel, some apple, and then the awful bitter aftertaste sets in.... Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle. Just plain awful. I really wanted to like this. It is easy to describe-it tastes like regular Budweiser with alot of artifical sweetner poured into it. Very sweet and cloying. Not good at all. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Pours golden with an orange hue, with almost no head. Aromas of dough kinda fruity. Flavor is sweet with a alcohol bit. Tastes like a malt liquor, this beer should have went in the Michelob Celebrate bottle and the Celebrate in this bitchin swing top bottle.

Who’d have thought that AB would try something like this with out including a paper bag.Might as well give it a chance who knows.Nice golden color,large white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was somewhat fruity with a bit of maybe some corn some hops that are faint and a mild malty side.The flavor was not that great and was no where near good enough to command such a high price.Some what malty and sweet with a bit of citrus coming on in the middle some hops and a corny sweetness that gets kind of annoying.This is definatley nothing more then a high end ML that is only worth trying once for the experience and nothing more,and thats if the experience is worth having any way.
