I really came into this beer wanting to like it and give it a shot. I must say that I am incredibly disappointed! A lot of respectable people have said that it was a nice try by Bud and that it is worth a try. I doubt I would recommend this beer to another BA. On to the review...
Pours a nice copper with some ruby coming trough with immaculate clarity. There is a tiny, slightly off-white head, that resides before I can even take a sip. This was the big knock on the appearance. As for the aroma: it has somewhat of a nice malt bill with some slight hops, but nowhere near deserving respect or commendation. The flavor is just as disappointing as the aroma. It has an identical malt bill with a slight hop bite. There is no complexity or depth and lacks that certain something that urges one to savor the sip. The body is light and the finish is somewhat dry.
Like I said, I wanted this beer to prove me wrong, to show me that AB could make a worthy beer, to show me it's ok to enjoy a beer from a major brewer, but they haven't shown me anything. Thank god I have 2 roommates to finish the 6-pack I bought that I will not finish.
