Draft. Pours amber with a medium, beige head. Aroma mostly of caramel with a hint of earthy hops. Flavor is semi-sweet caramel partially balanced by some earthy and floral hops. Somewhat watery with a slightly bitter finish. Not overly complex but drinkable.

Had in the summer of 09 down in North Carolina sitting in a bar dockside. For a macro produced beer I was rather impressed. Went down easily, but then again anything goes down easy after sitting in the sun all day. BREWMUSKCLES (2685) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2009
watery and well cooked to produce maximum flavor from any potential moneymaker. they say a good cook can do well with anything. spicy hop in regional tradition of company. clean tastes and finish... nothing that we all do not know already. arventresca (567) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Tap. Pours amber with nice white head. Not know what this beer was when I ordered it, it didn’t take me but one sip to figure out is was an A-B product. Watered down amber lager, but worse products exist. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2009
yeah yeah yeah. premium lager my ass. another subpar AB product. Grainy nose, grainy flavor. Move along.

Told by a waitress that it was Budweiser’s version of yuengling. Not quite the case. Pours a darker clear brown color (more so than yuengling). Aroma sweet and corny. Flavor sweet and a bit nutty. Watery but more substance than expected. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 18, 2008

Sampled at the 2008 Folio Weekly Beer Festival in Jacksonville, FL. Draft. Seems strange that with a Budweiser brewery here in town, this beer isn’t found around town. Nice amber color and taste, this is a bit better than the usual Bud offerings. They should make this available here in North Florida. subcell (96) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2008
This is an awesome Amber. My wife and I make it a point to go to Chi Chos as it is the only place in our area that we know of that serves it. That is all we really get is the beer. It has a beautiful amber color and nice malty aroma with a hint of hop. the flavor is well balanced and the after taste is very nice. This is a great beer! I just wish I could get it in bottles. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Not a bad amber ale, especially for a BMC. Poured to a nice ruby red color with off white head that lingered well and left okay lacing. Nose was nothing much, but it had a pleasant mouthfeel (medium bodied) and a decent taste. Finish was medium duration and alright. This would actually make an okay session beer.
I had this rating in my mind as I drank it on tap, not knowing who brewed it, and it is not fair to downgrade just because it is a macro.
