A - Pale straw color with some slowly rising tiny bubbles topped by a thick and creamy two finger head. Some sea-foam lace sticks to the glass, and the head never dropped below a quarter inch cap in the ten minutes it took me to drink this. This looks far superior to regular Budweiser, and it's one of the best looking macro lagers that I've seen. Good head retention, clear with some nice color. Ain't bad lookin'.
S - Candy coated jolly-rancher sweetness is all I smell at first, no real beer like notes at all. Doesn't smell bad, it just smells artificial and not at all like beer made with beer ingredients. Candy fruity raspberry and maybe black cherry.
T - Just like the nose, the flavor is one dimensional and artificial. Wine cooler jolly rancher sugar coated nastiness. Tastes a lot like Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss or a wine cooler...so, of course my fiance loved this one. Candy, candy, candy. This is all apple Jolly Rancher.
M - This would be very thirst quenching if it weren't for the super sweet palate coating sugar.
D - It's not all bad as a beverage, but as a beer it's a joke. This is barely drinkable for me...I think I'll let my girl finish this one for me (since I usually finish her dinner for her it seems like a fair trade). Girls (sorry all you real beer girls...I love you, but most girls dig fruity malternatives) will love this.
This is not my style, and arguably not really a beer (at least in terms of taste), but this is head and shoulders above swill like Bacardi Raz or a wine cooler. Plus it has caffeine! This has all night pillow fight party written all over it.

The only reason I loved & still love this cute little beer was because of it's uncanny ability to accompany summer-time 'get-togethers' of all shapes & sizes and the ever resultant broken property this beer seemed to always make sure of. Clearly, this is not a beer snobs beer. It was not a mythical creation discovered on the 1,000th attempt of some poor bastards accidental recipe, nor was it the product of love, hard work, dedication or the culmination of expertise. This beer was the product of a corporate knee-jerk reaction towards a seemingly ancient marketing strategy that somehow went right. This beer has a following that might rival Surge soda... so those of us who love it are all either Juggalos in denial, caffeine crazy pre-teens pretending to be beer lovers, or simply liked the stuff. Too bad its gone. But, oh well.

I remember when this came out. Always called this B to E. From what I remember this was a fruity drink. It was not bad. It is a shame that they don't brew it anymore. I kind of like it on a hot day. This was a Budweiser engery beer/ drink only came in 10oz cans.

It was one of the best beers I've ever tasted, it smelled good and it to affect after about 4 bottles. I think stores should start selling them again, with the same price.
Its nothing negative about this beer. I love the raspberry taste, the energy drink mixed in beer was great.
