Poured into a snifter
A: Light amber/golden with a half finger head that lingers.
S: Corn, sweet, malty.
T: Suprisingly smooth. A decent combination of malts, caramel and corn. I get that familiar Bud taste, only a bit more enhanced. Light vanilla, but no bourbon aging.
M: Medium with creamy carbonation.
O: Of the 3 offerings in the mix pack, this one is the most palatable. An easy drinker, just nothing outstanding. Still, not offensive. If Budweiser is trying to get all crafty, they could do a whole lot better.

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
5.5% ABV, 13229 on side of label.
A - Crystal clear, this deep golden beer has very little carbonation feeding the poorly retained off-white head. Wispy fingers of lace creep up the glass but the still brew doesn't extend the best invitation.
S - Vanilla extract notes waft from the pale lager as this simple pale-malt-based beer suggests hints of wood but no alcohol.
T - Wood stave-centered, this earthy beer has an unusual, almost plastic-y flavor leading into vanilla and faint alcohol which overtake the simple lager quickly.
M - Looks can be deceiving because this beer has high carbonation and a smooth body that finishes dry and rather clean but lacks any hook.
O - A training wheel "barrel-aged" beer for Budweiser drinkers, perhaps? This beer doesn't quite come together anywhere along the line but save for the weird flavor, it's not terrible. Lacking any sort of hook, the vanilla and wood doesn't quite meld well with the base beer and Bourbon is nowhere in sight.
