3/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a chilled bottle into a Perfect Pint. I let the glass warm up to about 45º before drinking.

A=Color is a dark gold--reminds me a bit of the old Coors' Extra Gold in appearance, but probably a shade or two lighter...still darker than anticipated. Minimal foam head with little staying power.

S=Nothing right away, but then a hint of hops, but not much.

T=Sweet, like a malt liquor. Hops are relatively light; Budweiser yeast not quite as evident as in the #23185.

M=Heavier body than I anticipated, and definitely more robust than light and many BMC's--moderate carbonation, but rather drinkable.

O=Better than I anticipated, but still comparable to Miller Genuine Draft, only sweeter. If I wanted this flavor profile, I'd probably opt for a Mickey's Malt Liquor instead.

Poured a nice deep golden orange with a thin off white head, light retention with carbonation running throughout until the end of the glass.

The smell is very fruity with a bit of apple and white grape coming through along with a light touch of corn.

The flavor is clean with a light crackery malt body with a lightly green noble hop quality to the finish, very balanced with just a light bit of sweetness and slightly grassy bitterness working well together.

the mouthfeel is very dry and a touch of resin.

Overall I like this, it has just a touch more character than most pils I come accross along with I know it being super fresh probably helps as well.

A- Pours a light golden hue. Small to medium head that doesn't retain long or lace much. Head does die down to a little froth on top. Other than that, pretty much a typical lager look.

S- Slightly more malty than Budweiser and other lagers. For a German pils, malt presence is high and there is no hint of the typical skunkiness. Still some hints of cheaper grains.

T- Not your typical German pils. Has the classic Budweiser crispness, but with more of a heavy malt flavor profile. Malts are solid and less grainy than Budweiser. Slight hints of hops at the end. Hops present little to no bitterness but balance out the malt flavor profile and give this beer a clean ending with little aftertaste.

M- Light, crisp, and refreshing without being watery. This is the best part of this beer, and Budweiser in my opinion. It is light and drinkable while still having some texture. High levels of carbonation are mellowed by the heavier malt flavors.

Overall, a beer slightly more enjoyable than regular Budweiser. Not breaking the mold, this beer doesn't have anything innovative or offensive in the flavor profile and will appeal to the masses. I think some BA's might like this as a lighter bodied beer to drink in larger quantities.

Ok project 12 rd 2 the pilsner let's do this... Nice white head on the pour stays much longer then the "deep amber" did. Color is a gold/yellow nice carbonation. Clear pour... Nose is slightly biscuity, malt is there. Smell is not as strong as some pilsners that I've had but pleasant. Taste is slightly sweet, some hop but not much bitterness... I really want to taste the bready biscuits that were there on the nose but not really getting them... Looking for a light tasting session beer I could put a few of these back but at the same time other pilsners that I could do the same to and I enjoy more. Mouthfeel is clean and easy drinking though the sweetness of the beer is left in the aftertaste for awhile. Overall average decent effort by ab/inbev.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance
Golden with 3 fingers of fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity and heavy carbonation.

Nose
Crisp, crackery scents.

Taste
Crackers...Budweiser yeast...some caramel...

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp and clean.

Overall
This is a really lousy attempt at a German Pilsner. The flavor is extremely light and doesn't have much of anything going on. No pilsner malts and no floral hops.
