Oh wow. Look at this guy - it's a little bit darker. Figured maybe an Amber meant it was going to resemble a Yuengling, but I was wrong.

Still tastes like a Bud. And pennies. Smells like Bud, too. I mean, there's a few hops trying to pop out on your tongue, but it still has that goddamn corn taste that Budweiser is known for.

The mouthfeel is good and I guess the 6.0% ABV will give you a buzz if you have nothing better to drink.

Glad this case of beer was on clearance for $9.99.

Next.

Our Budweiser distribution manager at work told me this is was test version of what will become “Bud Black Crown.” This pours a clear, light amber color with a fast diminishing head. There is a light scent of yeast. The taste is crisp with a cheap grain alcohol taste with a slight citrus finish.

Budweiser Batch No. 94106 (re-released in 2013 as Budweiser Black Crown) has a thick, off-white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, reddish-golden appearance, with nice lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of mild hops and fruit (think pears). Taste is of fruit, white bread crust, grain, and a little hop bitterness at the end. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Budweiser Batch No. 94106 finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is excellent.

An amber lager finished on beechwood chips. If you close your eyes and pay close attention, you can catch the hint of woodiness. Drinkable, with nothing to insult your palate.

I think I like this one the best of Bud's Project 12 Series. Like the others, this one is still a Budweiser.

This beer pours a dark golden or amber color. It has a very faint smell. Sweet carmel malts come through as the dominant flavor. Finishes with only a mild bitterness.

It is fairly easy to drink. I think this beer would go great with a steak or burger.

It is a nice beer, nothing that will blow you away, but it is enjoyable. And better than Budweiser or Bud Light.

3.03/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours dark amber with a thin head that soon becomes a bubbly wisp. Some spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel with some grain/cereal.

The taste is of sweet caramel with a hint of honey, and grain/cereal. A slight hop touch balances the sweetness in an abrupt finish.

Light-bodied. It's not too watery or fizzy, just thin.

A "run-of-the-mill" amber lager. Not as smooth as it could be.

I don't know if this is the brewery's way of having Bud drinkers think that craft beer is nothing special, but it seems that way by drinking this and the other two "batches" in this variety pack.

Pours a clear, dark amber color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight pale malt, hint of hop, and a hint of adjunct. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, hint of pale malt, hint of hop, and hint of adjunct. Overall, good appearance and blend, with decent body.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a lingering white head.

S: Aromas of grassy, lemony hops, caramel, biscuit, and beech chips make their presence known.

T: Notes of caramel, nuts, biscuits, crackers, grass, straw, and lemon are very evident in the mouth. The finish is quick and clipped with a combination of woody notes from the beech chips, caramel, and grassy hops.

M: Medium in body, firm, and dry. Carbonation is crisp. Easy to drink and very refreshing with just a touch of malt heft.

O: Not bad, but not great either. This one at least has a little more flavor than the Virginia brew. It's not exceptional by any stretch, but it is a pleasant, simple, straight-forward brew.

Ba Review #244
Served On: 12/12/2012
Glassware: Weizen Glass
Labeled ABV: 6.0%
Date/ Code: 12274WA23 (???)

This was from the 'Project 12' mixed pack I found at Evergreen Liquors in Frederick, MD ($11.99).

Look: Poured a crystal clear light copper. High carbonation. Some thin patches of lacing here and there. Head was a thin white coating.

Smell: Super sweet nose with a wet basement character. Some wet hay notes present. Also some grainy corn. Nothing too spectacular.

Taste: First up were sweet corn notes. Then not too much else. Maybe some toasted grain. This one did have slightly more character than ‘Batch 23185’.

I'm sorry but there has to be some artificial coloring used here. The amber tone seemed to suggest some sort of malt bill, but it just wasn't there. Typical AB-Inbev: appealing look with no real substance. Just my opinion.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a light amber color with a very bubbly amber head. The beer smelled a little nutty and had a slightly sweet finish to it. Not too bad. All in all a decent beer but not as good as their amber bock. I would try it again though and maybe to a blind taste test against the amber bock just to see.

Poured from a bottle into a cold frosted mug. Looks like a nice reddish amber with a little white head. But taste like a bud with more caramel malts/notes. If you like bud you'll love this beer. Me I hate bud so I think this stinks. Don't waste your money if you like bud, just buy bud.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

pours out a brilliant amber colour. thin head appears and dissipates quickly to a bit of spotty lace. aroma is lightly sugared with nutty hints but overall quite clean. flavour wise this is a malty sweet lager with hints of nut and wood with brown sugar and molasses undertones undoubtedly from the caramel malts used. there is a bit of an alcohol burn. tastes pretty decent. finishes dry. medium bodied with a crisp, semi-sweet lagerish mouthfeel. very nice drinkability for the style.

overall this is a nice approachable offering from budweiser, or A-B. has a bit of malt liquor overtone to it, but just tastes better. go try it.
