UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 I had this about a year ago and thought that it tasted worse than dirt - absolute drain pour. Glad to see it’s retired. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2008
I don’t think i would consider this a black and tan in the least bit. Pours a watery dark but clear brown colour. no head, aroma is sweet mouthfeel is light and somewhat dry. changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2008
Not the porter but it’s alright. Dark colored and had a fairly rich flavor and texture to it. Malty with perhaps some chocolate or toffee. Weak mouthfeel, not a ton of flavor either. It had much more flavor than your standard ole Michelob however. This isn’t bad. UnholyBrewing (596) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2008
...not too bad, but a poor attempt by a huge brewery at a hard to duplicate mix beer. Watery, and not true to the style, not good. BeerFanDan17 (1121) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Budweiser gets this one right because of the michelob base. Flavors are slightly watery, but malty and roasted with a hint of hops.

I was reviewing old family video’s recently when I saw that I had gotten a Mic variety pack for Christmas ’01’ with this beer in it. I remember not enjoying this particular beer because it did not taste like other black and tans I had tried. DowntownGator (22) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2007
From what I remember, this beer was not black or tan. And wasn’t tasty at all. Obviously not a commercial success either and this not due to poor quality.
See bud light.

They did everyone a favor by retiring this one. Not very tasty, just lacking the traditional porter taste. Bland. bboven (103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Not terrible. OK. It’s kind of terrible. Tastes like the amber bock, so they must have just added food coloring. pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Dark but translucent. Some chocolate and molasses. Almost tastes a black and tan, but not really.
