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.

It smelled ok, but this beer had nothing at all on the back end. It was absolutely horrible. I bought a six pack and tried one and thought it sucked. I waited until another day to try the second one just in case there was something wrong with my taste buds. The second was just as bad as the first and it confirmed my belief that this beer was undrinkable. Pass on this one, it was the only beer I have ever poured down the sink to get rid of.
