3.14/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 3.25

A - Poured a dark amber with a thick head that seemed to stick around for the first few minutes. Great color, kinda surprised by it, was expecting something bright yellow light regular Budweiser, but the deep amber is definitely a step in the right direction.

S - Doesn't have much of a smell. Picking up on some malt and some hop bite, but other than that, nothing stands out.

T - For a macro brew, it's really not that bad. Good, smooth taste with some sweetness and bite, and a rather complex palate too, especially for a macro brew. Picking up some corn muffin, a little sugary cereal, a hint of earthiness, and maybe even a little bit of citrus/sour. Definitely interesting.

M - Beer. Feels like beer, nothing too special here.

O - Definitely impressed by Budweiser for stepping up their game by making a stronger craft wanna-be beer. I hope they continue the experimentation, because compared to the rest of their lineup, this one's pretty good.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

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.

Serving type: can

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

A: Clear orange amber with decent head and retention.

S: Malt forward with some sweetness. A bit of hops. Reasonably balanced.

T: Same as the smell but more prominent sweetness. A little bit of grain. Tastes kind of cheap. Not awful though.

M: Smooth with more richness than expected. Decent carbonation.

O: While not a bad beer it's not a really good one either. Definitely a step up from regular Bud though.
