Ba Review #245
Served On: 12/12/2012
Glassware: Rolling Rock Flute Glass
Labeled ABV: 6.0%
Date/ Code: 12274WA68 (???)

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

Look: Poured a crystal clear golden color. Carbonation bubbles stuck to the glass like soda. Some thin patches of lacing here and there. Head was a thin white fizzy coating of bubbles.

Smell: Sweet nose with a wet grass character. Some wet hay notes present. Also some grainy corn. Not that great.

Taste: First up was semi- sweet corn. Then a metallic taste. The finish was clean like water. Some dextrose sweetness did return in the finish.

Not a very good Pilsner in my opinion. I just love how AB-Inbev talks up their beers by naming some popular hops and malts - so I try the stuff and it's a complete disappointment. Textbook case of false advertising.

This one shines brightly, a clear yellow-orange color. The head, just off-white, makes it to half a finger and falls quickly but not as quickly as some, leaving some wisps of foam capable of some decent spotting.
Pilsner's an easy style in once sense in attaining to the strength and depth it needs, but very difficult in the technicalities to brew without flaws. As such, this beer's cleanness and drinkability point to some skill. It's floral and pretty grassy with a little sweetness and some citrus zest. There's just a buzz of spiciness in the nose and the tip of the tongue. There are some huskier, almost dry, grains underlying. To be honest, though, this would get more points as a Czech pils. It's entirely too weak as far as the hops are concerned, and a little too sweet overall.
It's light-bodied but not thin or weak like A-B's typical lager lineup. There's a solid crispness to it. I'm a little surprised by a certain creaminess.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance has a slight hazy yellow gold color supporting a dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell is light with sweet grainy aromatics. Taste for a slight second has that genuine pilsner taste that dissipates quickly into a budweiser having a bit more graininess and sweetness. Mouthfeel is light medium with a good spike of carbonation.

12 oz bottle picked up in some random store in San Fransisco and brought back to the UK to review at leasure. Poured into a 'Back Forty' Beer Co straight sided glass on 3 May 2013.

Regular lager look: golden, clear and clean, white head.

The aroma was semi-sweet floral and fruity: a lot more aromatic than most pilsner/lager beers.

The taste was also semi-sweet with a fruity feel within the flavours. I like sweeter brews and this was fine for me.

If this beer had a non-Budweiser label its scores would be a lot higher: it deserves to be appreciated more.

Well done Bud: one of your best beers that I've had anyway.

2.28/5  rDev -22.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

12oz bottle into pilsner glass.

A - Clear golden with a big, sudsy white head.

S - Faint bready malt, rice, stale grain, oxidized metallic scent.

T - Sweet toasted grain, corn, subtle grassy hops. Light fruitiness, yeast, and a hint of spice on the finish.

M - Smooth, watery, very light bodied. High carbonation, crisp finish.

O - Nothing too offensive about this beer, but there is very little flavor to be found. There are almost no hops to speak of, making this a very poor representation of what a good pilsner should be.
