2.35/5  rDev -25.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

a honey colored, 1.5 finger head that seems thick and leaves lots of lacing. lots of clarity

s: smells like an american macro. sort of an off-malty smell, hops mostly absent to the nose

t ?? not sure what to make of this. lots more than a typical budwienser that's for sure. sort of a bitterness to offset the malts, but not easily Identified as hops

m a bit on the thin side, no real alcohol burn, I dont like this taste and dont know how to label it. but it IS better that the typical macro

d: I would NOT reach for another. having bought this I hate to waste it so I'll finish it and that's that.

Anheuser-Busch's attempt make a better beer, it has better quality than it's large scale production brethren. It pours clear golden, light foamy head, with lacings, and average carbonation. It lacks aroma, has an average ale taste with the major taste being hops. It has no edge, is refreshing, and leaves a hops aftertaste.

I remember when Budweiser American Ale came out on the market. This was one of the only Anheuser Busch beers with a pull cap not a twist off. This was a drak beer with a bold taste. It is a shame they do not brew this beer anymore. I would get it time after time it was something different from the Budweiser or Michelob. Overall I gave this beer a 3.
