3.28/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Part of a mix-6, been putting off trying it for a while due to my admitted bias against the company. Really not a bad beer though, I can't say I would ever go out and buy it, but it's the sort of beer you would still get to find at a get together of non-craft folks, and in that case, I'd be happy to drink it.

A/S: Kind of disturbing, really, the head looks soapy... Glad that it didn't stick around for long. Other than that, the color is a decent amber, glassy clear. Smell is fair, malty, something of a synthetic sweetness going on. I don't pick up any hops but I may be distracted by off-sweetness that keeps creeping up.

T/M: Surprisingly good on the taste front. After the look and smell I assumed I was getting the product I expected, but I turned out to be wrong. This is a solid tasting brew, that if it just had a that little extra something on the hops front I would have crept it up to a 4. Feel is average, light, but not too watery.

D: The bottle was gone before I realized it. Those clever BMC people, making beer that disappears. Definitely has drinkability from a standpoint of drinking it down, I just wouldn't honestly see myself excited to have another especially if others I like were available. Still, I have to give them credit for making products that are so easy to drink.

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.
