Really nice for a commercial brew. Consistent and much more flavor than you would expect from corporate beer

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A- A standard looking brew overall....golden amber in color and very clear. There appears to be plenty of carbonation rising to the top as well. There isn't much of a head, but at least its a patchy, super white effort. Lacing is pretty modest as well....small clumps of foam slowly slide back into the brew....nothing special, nothing offensive!

S- Much more authentic smelling than standard Bud.....I actually smell malt! It is slightly toasty and sweet like melted brown sugar. There is a hop presence as well...cant pinpoint the type but im certain it is more from an extract or dried hop leaf....it's not fresh enough but the effort is there!

T- Not bad...not bad at all! While this isn't as flavorful or as good as others I've had in this style, there is a distinct malt sweetness that is slightly caramel like and yeasty at the same time. The finish isn't as bitter as I was hoping for but there is a weak hop note that is noticeable enough.

M/O- A decent enough beer that doesn't change a whole lot from the start through to the finish. It is a beer that I would be able to enjoy during a session, as it's thin to medium bodied, very smooth....the carbonation is quite fine, and it had a very standard, yet flavorful enough taste. I would buy this again and think it's a good effort, and think it is getting a bad reputation overall just because it is a Budweiser product.
