From the 12 fl. oz bottle with an old date of 21 May 2013. Sampling it on April 19, 2014, which is nearly a year later.
The color of it is quite pleasant with its medium amber copper tone and small white head that fades off quickly.
The aroma is more malty than anything else. It has an odd caramel note to it and halfway decent sweetness. It was not what I expected.
The body is about medium and rather smooth.
The taste also has a nice caramel sweetness to it and that Budweiser Beech-wood roastiness. Better than regular Budweiser by far.

poured slightly orange and clear with amber notes, head was ok but quickly fizzed out leaving no lace and no head.
aroma and taste were typically budweiser-ish and not really what you'd expect from anything labeled amber ale. it's like they were trying to made a bud but sell it to people who wanted an amber ale. my advice is that if you want an amber ale, this probably isn't the beer for you. if you want a bud, this bud's for you, but it's quite a stretch calling it an amber.
overall I'm not impressed. although I got this bottle free, I wonder if they had a craft beer price tag on this one. but the thing is, pretending it's craft doesn't turn a bud into a craft beer. not that I am taking anything away from bud: it's not easy to make a nearly colorless, flavorless, crystal clear beer. but that's not going to take anything away from the craft beer market either. craft drinkers will see right through and go back to what they really want when they seek out an amber ale: flavor, aroma, head, lacing, etc, which this really doesn't have.

Appearance – This is crystal clear with a monster head that fell quickly, not exactly what I was expecting.
Smell – This smells just like their Adjunct Lager. I really don’t get any characteristics of the style. It’s old, stale, cheap American grain.
Taste – Again this has no malt and I can’t for the life of me find one thing about this beer that would justify calling it an Amber Ale.
Mouthfeel – It’s kind of smooth which isn’t bad but it is way too light for the style and the cheap carbonation is wanting.
Sinkability – I couldn’t even finish this sad effort.
