The second A-B product offered to me at a week-end gathering...my host felt he was really doing me a favor sharing one of his favorite US import beer with me.
It poured with a bright gold color and a decent enough white cap. Moderate carbonation. Very little aroma aside from light whiffs of grains. smae light body an character as Budweiser except the weak malts are more defined in this beer...clean crisp finish, no aftertaste. and no "off" tastes either.
..fairly boring macro beer...not offensive but nothing unique either....a let down for all the hype about it being a super premium macro

My inaugural BeerAdvocate review! I figured I'd pick the first beer I ever had.
Bottle 13320 (November 16th, 2013?) CFQ3, from a standard shaker glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep gold, totally clear, 1/2" head, fades to a lingering foam. LOTS of carbonation.
Aroma: Mild, slight "stale beer" smell, slightly adjuncty/grainy.
Taste: Decent maltiness; fairly sweet on arrival, stays sweet across mid-palate. Grainy. rich/thick. Slight hoppy bitterness at the end. Not what I would call a "clean" finish - it sticks with you a while.
Mouthfeel: Slick and extremely carbonated. Foamy. Mid-weight, not too heavy, but decidedly heavier than PBR or Budweiser.
Overall: Three things strike me: (1) It is pretty decent for what it is ($7.50/6-pack!); (2) it is not going to win any awards; and (3) it tastes exactly as I remember it as a youngster, taking a sip of Dad's. Beer snobs everywhere can flame on, but I like this casual and unpretentious beer. It is greater than the sum of its parts.
