I was expecting something different from the name (no Bourbon or caskyness here) and I could be much harsher on this. But for what it is (comes off more like a Bass or a Newcastle), I have to say I enjoyed it and was shocked when I found it was from Anheuser-Busch.
A clear orangish-red with a head that doesn't last.
Smell is weak and vanilla?
Vanilla comes through in the taste, along with a malty backbone. Taste not complex, but pleasant.
Mouthfeel is quite smooth, crisp and refreshing. Thinner than I expected after hearing the name of this beer, but it works.
Quite drinkable. I'd have this again and hope AB continues trying to make beers with actual taste to them.
Serving type: on-tap

While I'm usually not a fan of sweeter beers this is one beer I would make an exception for. Perfect for a cool autumn evening or a chilly winter night. It paired perfectly with a couple of great chili cheese dogs & a football game on TV. I'm a big fan of it.
