look: 2 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

Take a Bud Light, add some medicinal alcohol taste to it and a hint of metallic. Wrap it up in a pretty bottle that looks like a credit card and market the hell out of it as premium. My question to Anheiser is if this is the premium, than what the hell is Bud Light?

Anheiser seems to think that you can just relabel sub par beer and market it but the growing rise in micro and craft beers is finally starting to chip away at them. I hope the pace continues. because this is a less than stellar beverage and barely drinkable. I've had a bottle in the fridge for over 7 months because no one will drink it.

1.51/5  rDev -32%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden body with tons of rising bubbles. The white head dissipates lightning fast. No lacing.

Aroma: Slightly sweet, kind of a glue-like aroma, some metallic notes.

Taste: Sweet up front. Boozy. A faint metallic and sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated, oddly sticky.

Overall: There's just something about this beer that is off. It's very malty, boozy, and metallic. Not sure what they were going for here. It wasn't refreshing at all.
