12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Dec. 5, 2012 (purchased the 12-pack for $12.99 at the 7/11 near Allied Gardens (San Diego) on Dec. 4, 2012. Caramel amber with about a finger of gray head that disappeared very fast. No retention on the top or sides.

Smelled caramel, toffee, roasty nuts and a bit of bitter chocolate malts. Had to work for it though.

Tasted not too much like the smell. Got a sharp whiff of alcohol up front and a bubble of carbonation that gradually built up to a malty finish. Got slight caramel but nothing too special.

Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Lively (above average)-to-fizzy (good) carbonation. Abrupt finish.

Not a bad effort, but the Williamsburg (23185) batch was the best in my opinion. I’d have this one close to the St. Louis (63118).

Deep amber what? Here's another example from the Project Twelve.

Pours a mild (not deep) amber with a thin head into my glass. I don't see anything profound here.

Some sweet caramel from the malt. Otherwise, it smells pretty bland. I don't want to sound stereotypical but I was thinking of regular Bud with that smell.

Incredibly thin, almost watery with very little flavor. It passes by so quickly that my taste buds can't keep up.

Cidery mouthfeel would be more appropriate. Sweet? Yes. Full of hops? No. Finished on beechwood chips? Hmm.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours clear, light amber with a white head. The head is two-fingers in thickness and dissipates at a moderate pace. There are a lot of visible tiny bubbles in the beer. The beer smells of toasted malts and some caramel. There are some grassy hop notes as well, but they are mild. The taste follows the nose and there's the distinctive beechwood flavor normally detected in Budweiser. The nutty and malty flavors are pretty well pronounced here. It's bready with some mild sweetness. The hops provide some balance. The body light to medium with moderate carbonation. The beer finishes crisp and this is drinkable. This is a good beer.

Bottle from Sheetz in Altoona, PA.

A - Poured a lighter amber color with a white head that leaves some lacing behind.

S - Has a pretty decent sweet caramel malt nose.

T - Like the smell it has a good caramel malt flavor with some sweetness to it.

M - This beer has a medium body with medium carbonation to it.

O - Overall this is a pretty good beer that hits at least average compared to all the beers I've had. In all honesty I'm enjoying this beer tastes good and easy to drink whats not to like. Worth at least trying if you have the chance.

A-Deep gold/amberish....minimal lace..

S-Nice clean malty aroma....light caramel...

T-This one has something unique going on. Couldn't identify it at first but then it came to me. Pistachios. Seriously. No doubt about it. Pistachios. I really like it and the flavor overall. Not so overally sticky sweet like the vanilla one. Just a nice nutty, amber lager...

M-Clean...borders on crisp I would say....medium bodied to the light side of medium bodied.

O-I like this one. Really a unique flavor and an enjoyable beer to drink. I'd buy this one if offered at decent prices (think Killians or Amber Bock)...

Smells very similar to that other batch; the blonde one, not the other amber one. Big flowers, medium malt, not much by way of the hops.

Tastes similar to Budweiser, only with a more pronounced back end. (Is that the beechwood?). It's very malty wiht enough hops to prevent the malt from getting icky sweet. The finish is quite clean, and really this is like something they probably would have gone nuts for in the 60s. Right now, though, it ain't all that interesting.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 12273-WA95. Sampled on November 12, 2012.

The color is not as dark as I might have hoped. It comes in at a medium amber-copper color with no head.

The aroma is pretty straight forward grains, pale malts, and crisp hops. But nothing jumps out as extraordinary.

The body is about medium and creamy.

The taste is also fairly grainy with a crisp, clean finale. Really it tastes like a slightly more boisterous Budweiser American pale.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

The middle child in my trip through the Project 12 pack ends up being the normal amber lager. It pours a clear bronze-brass topped by a finger of short-lived lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises vanilla, light nutmeg, toffee, and a touch of grass. I don't really know what to think of this, but I do know it's pretty pleasant. The taste brings in more of the same, with a slightly breadier backbone and an added twinge of orange peel. The body is a very light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a slightly overcarbonated and oily beer, but one that still comes across as a pleasant-enough-tasting little amber lager. Not bad, really.
