Made me reconcider the life decisions that brought me to the point where I ordered this appalling excuse for a beer. It smelled like Francis Marion, the swamp fox, and tasted like they found a ked of Redd's Apple Ale sitting in their grease trap after a few months. The color was deceivingly pleasant. Order this as a punishment for a friend that loses a bar bet.

A - Redish/dark orange, copper in color.

S - Very malty with a slight smell of hops (bitter smell) and then a hint of a sweet after-smell.

T - Pretty much the same as the smell. Malty, a bit sweet with only a little bitteness of the hops.

M - Medium bodied, and a medium amount of carbonation.

D - It was okay... Not that great, I probably would not get this beer again.

On-tap at Fox and Hound, Beavercreek, OH

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of malts in the nose along with some hints of caramel.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that it is a little stronger. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a bit watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but doesn’t hold up quite on its own as a standalone beer—it would be a better choice if you wanted to pair something with a meal.

Drank at the Fox and Hound in Lake Highlands. The beer pours a reddish color with a white head. The aroma is full of malt with some bread and toffee. The flavor is also heavy on the malt. I get a lot of toffee and caramel with a little bit of nuttyness and grass mixed in. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fox and Hound is not known for having a good beer selection, but this beer is actually not too bad.

Anheuser-Busch carries this?? That is news to me. How come I can only find it at Fox & Hound then? Sell this in more places!

It pours a beautiful red amber color, with a slight copper tone. Good carbonation throughout.

It's one of the best amber's I've tried, and I've tried a lot of ambers. It's almost sweet with a good maltiness.

I order it ever time I go to Fox & Hound.

On tap at Fox and Hound in Raleigh.

Deep, amber red color, little to no head on it, just a thing ring of foam. The smell was quite sweet, very mild hop aroma. The taste was ok, nothing great but nothing offensive either. Lots of malty sweetness, very minimal hop bitterness. The more I drank, the sweeter and more sticky it got. An average beer, lots of other better Ambers out there.
Note to self: I didn't know this was an AB beer until looking it up. Another 'hidden' craft beer.

Served in a pint glass on tap at Fox and Hound

I had actually never heard about this beer so I decided to pull the trigger. It actually has a nice deep amber red color to it with little to no head on it when I got it, wasn't sure if that was how it poured or just how long it took to get to me, either way points off. The smell was nothing big there was a mild hop aroma and a crap-ton of sweet malts perhaps a bit of corn syrup, but it was hidden rather well. Mostly those aromas were pretty faint. The taste wasn't all that great, it was by no means offensive, but it was way too malty. The hop notes that were there were totally drowned out by the highly malty flavor. It was perhaps a bit off due to what may have been some corn additive to this beer. There was a syrupy nature to it that didn't make it all that great, but it wasn't outright terrible. I drank the whole thing, so that tells you something, it wasn't all that bad. It tasted like someone tried to make Boston Lager and failed. I didn't actually know that this was an AB beer, but it makes sense now to it's mediocrity.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Red copper color with a small head that didn't do much.

S - Mostly malty, a little bit of a bitter hops in there that kills some of the sweetness. Somewhat blah with not a ton going on.

T - Pretty much on par with the smell. Malty, a bit sweet with only a little bitteness to kill the malts. Not a ton going on here, and tastes a little bit sour.

M - Medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

D - It shouldn't be hard, but the taste actually gets in the way of this one a little bit. Don't really want this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Has a nice copper color with a hint of red. The short white head dissipates fairly fast, leaving some lacing.

The smell was mainly malt and yeast, with a hint of floral.

Tasted pretty much like it smelled, malt up front, and a bit of sweetness. Maybe just a hint of spice. Has a lightly hoppy finish.

Feel was about average, the high carbonation helped a bit.

Not really a bad beer, but not a great one either. I had no idea who brewed this, was better than most offering from A-B. Lack of complexity and a bit of a watered down feel kept this from being something special.

3.3/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Had a nice amber color that was pretty clear. More clear than expected, but not in a bad way. Had a pretty small head.

Smell: Some nice malt aromas with hints of fruit subtly in the background.

Taste: Has a moderately fruity flavor that has a very strong bitter kick. It's good, but not the smoothest thing.

Mouthfeel: Had a fair body; fuller than expected.

Drinkability: While it's pretty good, it's just not balanced enough for my taste. It's something I could get again, but will not actively seek.

Poured a reddish amber color with a small white head. Nose is very simple with just some caramel. Taste is a low billet with light caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice smoothness but no real flavor besides the caramel. Drinkability is average.

Had this at fox and hounds

appearance: Amberish w/ a small white head in a pint glass, no lacing to speak of.

smell: Adjunct, musty, and barely any malt and hop character to speak of

taste: Red Budweiser maybe...really not to great

It was on special for 3 bucks a pint...i would probably drink again if i had already had a couple of good beers and just wanted the fellowship.

To date, this is the worst beer I have ever had. I was feeling adventurous at the fox and hound the other night and there was a special on these so I thought what the heck. Maybe if I had known at the time it was A/B I would have known better. Watery and barely red, with little to no head. Faint smells of adjuncts and faraway rotted hops. Taste was even more unbearable. First, I thought I was sucking on a hand full of loose change, then I thought I was just drinking over chlorinated tap water. Watery, like I said, and I will never drink this again.

I had this beer on tap at the fox and hound. In both Chesterfield and Springfield Missouri.

It has a strange dark red brownish body with lots of bubbles in it. There's mediocre head but good off white almost beige lacing. It has yeasty and bread like malt taste more than anything followed up by a little bitterness maybe even a little nutty and some fruitiness but it is minimal. The body is medium but has great carbonation. The aroma is very sweet with some clean crispness.
