Pours a clear dark copper to chestnut brown with a quickly dissipating, soapy khaki head. Aroma is sweet cereal, toast, metal, light toasty wood and caramel. Flavor is caramel, lots of weird artificial tasting toffee, bread crust, cereal and light metallic notes. Light body, oily feel throughout and medium carbonation. Not very good. Better than I would expect from A-B, but they have leagues to go to catch up to the little guys.

Deep golden to amber in color. Smallish beige head. Aromas of light wood, caramel, and brown sugar. Light sweet start, with grain, and caramel and toasted grain. Dry finish and with light floral hops. An amber lager, fairly clean. 10/13

March Ale Alpharetta. This gem was sitting in someones fridge for a while, so they said what the hell. End result was not good. Caramel, wood, sweet in a watered down way.

12 oz. bottle, brought to Ale Alpharetta by Hamp. Pours clear, light brown, with a small, tan head. The initial nose is some nice caramel malts, followed quickly with wet grass, light milk chocolate, and pine. Watery, sweet flavor, with an awful aftertaste. Light to medium body, pretty smooth, and watery. This gave me a little hope with initial aroma, but turned out weak and unpleasant.

Cybercat (5555) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours clear Amber with a thick ivory head. Crisp aroma is malty but not much else. Malty flavor has caramel hints, OK if not outstanding. Better than your average macrobrew. Texture has little fizz and not much body. Well, nice try.

thedm (6043) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was woody. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of wood and hops. Not one that I would buy again.

Red in color. Basically its like a Killians with more of a kick and a sweeter finish.

Bottled from Rite Aid. Decent little bock . Lacking the richness of a good bock. The wood character is mostly non-existent. Not bad for Bud though.

Homer321 (4653) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle thanks to drowland. nose is full of that crystal malt instead of maillard reaction typical of AB, like in amberbock. taste is actually much better, but it just this bland sweet mess with no real bock character at all. tolerable and nothing wrong with it other than recipe.

12 oz bottle- Pours clear dark amber with a thin light tan head. Aroma is very amber aleish, maybe a little richer. The taste is similar, like a rich amber ale, no detectable beechwood chips, or chocolate, just caramel malt. Body is light and carbonation is medium high. You get what you expect with a Budweiser "craft beer".
