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.
