2007 bottle. Opened with a spurt of wet gas. Aroma is roasted malt with some grassy hop. Beautiful mahogany color with an impressive beige head. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is roasted caramel with some balancing bitter. The alcohol is a bit up front. The finish is not all that dry, and there is some grass or veg from the hop. It is definitely peppery or spicey in a light way. The flavor improves with continued consumption. A nice effort for AB, and I think the ratings would be higher if the bottle came from somewhere in Germany. djd07 (15544) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2016

Large hinged botte. Hazy amber orange pour with a huge off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with minimal lacing. Light tart citrus alcohol aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. Not what I expected, nice bottle. BeerandBlues2 (13814) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 19, 2009

(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.... hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Huge flip top bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of corn and malt liquor (since I don’t have too much experience reviewing Malt Liquors, this is only my 2nd to DFH’s, I’ll leave it as generic, nasty malt liquor). It takes some balls to label this as your premier, Brew Master Private Reserve beer. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"for Budweiser, this is liquid gold...but in reality, when stacked up against many other good beers, it’s just ok. it does actually taste like they used hops generously, malt, etc...not urine, so that’s a plus. never thought i’d rate a bud close to a 3, but for the price, i want a 4+.

A peachy colour with sizzly initial head. Fizzy carbonation, medium mouthfeel with some fruit like matter in it. Not too drinkable, but better than I expected.I did not quite like it, thanks for the sample Dan from Oak Park Buy Rite. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Molasses and buttery barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head - surprisingly lively carbonation. Sweet buttery caramel malt and hay flavor. Not bad - a pretty mild doppelbock though.
