look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Oh snap... A cobalt blue bottle just like SN Triple Bock!

Poured into a standard pint, and made a lot of fizz noise. The finger thick white head vanishes quickly before the eye, into an astonishing nothingness. The body is pale straw in color and not one hint of haze at all.

The aroma is wet hay sweet, some cardboard, and a light citrus character.

Taste wise it's got a light cream of wheat flavor, with a touch of lemon.

Feels thin, but with mild alcohol warmth. Pretty much a BL on roids, but still doesn't give off the overall Budweiser feel, even though this one has more alcohol.

2.14/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 2 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Light yellow color with a medium head.

Smell: Has a sour smell with some sugary scents. Very odd smell to me with a mix of random things.

Taste: Has a bitter taste but still tastes watery like a bud light. There are not a ton of very distinguishable tastes that I would consider enjoyable. I was hoping for more from anheuser-busch's more expensive beer.

Overall: Drinkable. I have grown to be a craft beer guy so in terms of macros I was not incredibly surprised that I was not crazy about it. For a light macro its ok. I wont buy it often though.
