pours out of the 16 oz. can a deep amber colour with a rather robust foamy head. reduces to sparse lace. malt and adjunct aroma with sugary undertones. taste wise, it brings some toasty malt notes, and supporting adjunct. heavy carbonation makes it seem dense and meaty for a lager. a bit of straight up, no nonsense bitterness rounds things out. souped up body and dense mouthfeel. while intriguing and with character, not really too drinkable.
overall this seems like an amber bock on steroids. a beefy, cool weather lager. it's pretty flawless but also sort of dull. never was a fan of A-B's malt liqour lineup, but this is ok.

25oz can poured into "Old Style" glass able to hold it all. From the Bud website, "Smooth, full-bodied copper lager that offers bold flavor
without sacrificing affordability. Features a sweet aroma,
signature smooth taste, clean finish and distinctive copper
color". I'm afraid this one may have a bit of age on it with a date on bottom of can of "23JAN14"
So, here we go. Definitely a red lager with a red/gold hue and a tannish head which seems to fizzle it's way out of existence pretty darn quickly. Hard to pick up much of the advertised sweetness in the aroma, but I guess it's there in time. Initially pretty much a lager character with slight sulfur and zesty carbonation hitting the nose.
Certainly a little more flavor, but not a lot. A bit of malt character and a touch of sweetness that may grow old as I work through this. The can notes some toasted flavor and I get some of that too. Dries out quiet a bit and leaves the dryness hanging for a long while. Takes on some caramel sweetness as it warms.
Full, full and more full from carbonation. It fills the whole mouth and makes it hard to take a big hard pull on it. It stimulates the tongue though. I'm getting full quickly.
This is okay. I think I might like it better if it was warmer out and I was more thirsty as it falls closest to a lawnmower beer.

Solid effort all around. Taste of dark, toasted malt dominates and provides a biting carbonation sting that I could take or leave. Loving these new line of domestic offerings such as Budweiser Black Crown, Bud Light Platinum, and Miller Fortune that are marketed at a more premium level and bear more alcohol and more complex tones than cheap adjunct lagers. Busch Signature is definitely bound to be an underrated choice amongst an already overblown market.
Prior to trying this, my philosophy on Busch was why drink it when you can eat it?

Was told by a coworker that this beer was not a bad beer for the price. Was skeptical at first being it is a Busch beer. Grabbed a six pack of tall boys. Poured into my pint glass. I am shocked at the flavor of this beer. Definitely worth checking out. I enjoy trying every different beer I can find. Yuengling has been my to go beer for years. This Busch Copper is better I think. I believe I have found my new go to beer.

Appearance: Clear, deep amber red with a large, almost massive dense off-white head, which retains quite well. The carbonation is profuse, fine, and fast-rising. The lacing is thick and glass-coating.
Aroma: Dark toasted malt dominates the aroma, nothing like, say a well-made craft beer, but substantial for a macro lager. There are some biscuit notes as well, a whiff of alcohol, and faint herbal hops.
Taste: Opens with toasted malts, and a bit of warming alcohol. As the taste progresses, there are some corn and vegetable flavors. Late in the taste, some moderate herbal and grassy hops appear, these carry the taste to a balanced close.
Mouth feel: Fairly smooth with a bit of stinging carbonation, a bit thin.
Drinkability/notes: I suspect this is intended as a competitor to Miller Fortune, which is a far and away better beer, in my opinion. For confirmed macro drinkers, this is probably "a walk on the wild side". Still, its cheap and available, and is far and away better than Busch, and most especially, Budweiser.
Presentation: Packaged in a sixteen ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Watch out here comes the big guys!
For a lager that comes from a brewery that makes some pretty bad stuff i must say i am pretty ok with this one.
The color is a nice gold with heavy white head. I think i can actually smell some hops! Medium light mouthfeel clean finish.
A nice drinking beer that i would buy again and again.
