I felt as though this beer celebrates being mediocre.
They tried to do something somewhat original and that's commendable I suppose.
I am a pharmacist by trade, and it's illegal to mislabel a drug product, and that's
the situation this brew finds itself in.
Pours ok color, head gone in seconds, leaves no lacing on glass, good carbonation.
smell faint generic wheat beer.
Taste is the problematic part...
Huge let down. It in absolutely no way resembles a Pale Ale in taste.
No complexity. No real flavor.
I was looking for something more the whole time drinking.
Anheuser-Busch should be in court for a mislabeling.
Not a pale ale at all... couldn't find more than a note of hops in it.
Also had a weird "hard to put my finger on" after taste.
Will not reconsider.
