The beer was first brewed in St. Louis by brewmaster Jim Bicklein and was developed in collaboration with brewmaster Katie Rippel from Fort Collins, Colo. The original Budweiser brewery is, of course, here in St. Louis, so we wanted to honor our brewing heritage with a beer that uses ingredients that German immigrants, like our founder Adolphus Busch, would have used when they came to the United States, Bicklein said. In this pilsner we use the same types of Hallertau and Tettnang hops commonly used in St. Louis during the late 1800s.

Smells like corn and pilsner malt. Tastes like disappointment. Wait, how can it disappoint when my expectations are nearly zero? Sweet, bland, bad. What's next?

Bookseeb (137) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Appearance has a slight hazy yellow gold color supporting a dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell is light with sweet grainy aromatics. Taste for a slight second has that genuine pilsner taste that dissipates quickly into a budweiser having a bit more graininess and sweetness. Mouthfeel is light medium with a good spike of carbonation.

At bobs. Grainy buttery nose. Clear dark gold. Interesting adjunct taste not enough hop for a pils. Okay.

BlackHaddock (6972) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
12 oz bottle picked up in some random store in San Fransisco and brought back to the UK to review at leasure. Poured into a Back Forty Beer Co straight sided glass on 3 May 2013. Regular lager look: golden, clear and clean, white head. The aroma was semi-sweet floral and fruity: a lot more aromatic than most pilsner/lager beers. The taste was also semi-sweet with a fruity feel within the flavours. I like sweeter brews and this was fine for me. If this beer had a non-Budweiser label its scores would be a lot higher: it deserves to be appreciated more. Well done Bud: one of your best beers that Ive had anyway.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, dark golden appearance with a foamy, khaki head. Fairly sweet, a bit fruity, Angel Food cake, bready aroma. A bit floral and just a touch bitter hoppy, but overall pretty well balanced despite a bit sweetness. Slightly fruity, light pineapple flavor. Sure, I could probably get WBW on this.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sour, tangy and industrial. The flavor was sour and tangy with notes of bead and honey though a touch bitter. Medium length tangy bread and honey finish. Moderately full bodied. Fairly pleasant.

Thanks "Cheap" for this brew. Nice pilsner. Hop flavor, grassy notes, did not think it was 6% abv. Smooth, clean, crisp brew.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and caramel with fresh oak and grassy accents.. pleasant. The flavor found mostly honey at the core, with orange zest and grassy bitterness around.. finished dry and grainy. Light-bodied and grainy on the palate.. ok feel, and very drinkable.

Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Two fingers of head on a clear, golden colored body. Nice head retention too. The aroma is faint, some grain? The taste has a mild lemon bitterness, smooth and nice though. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Not amazing, but descent enough.

DocLock (10441) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours dark straw with minimal white head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is corny grainy pale malt, mild hops. Tastes of swmi tart pale malt, grainy, with hops and some off lactic flavor late. This one sucks, and if this is the best InBev can do after 63000+ tries, then it is time to hang it up.
