Just a better bud, more golden / amber / darker in pour. As we await the super bowl commercial. Malty, crisp, fresh, smooth, caramel, floral hops, alcohol (6.0). Very little aroma. Hopefully on sale in grocery store. Minimal after taste, pours into glass well with a noticeable head. Worth a try .

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

What king would wear such a thing? King of the Goths, perhaps? BA-ZING! ... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber-brass topped by a finger of relatively short-lived glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises dried caramel, flowers, and a hint of artificial vanilla. The taste focuses on the inherent sweetness of things, adding in a touch of wheatiness for the sake of it. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slightly slick feel, and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, an okay beer, sorta reminiscent of Bud American Ale, but sweeter and less nuanced. Not bad, but nothing to make me wanna buy another one on purpose.

Special thanks to my in-laws who gave me a 12 pack because I like those "fancy" beers.

Poured into a snifter the color was a golden amber, as advertised. Tons of carbonation bubbling from the bottom it couldn't seem to feed a quickly fleeting, fizzy head. Good color, bad body.

Faint hints of a sweet caramel and a malty scent. There's some roasted qualities in the scent but its not strong enough to pull it above average.

The taste is toasty, more so at the finish. More malt than caramel malt I don't detect much of a sweetness or caramel flavor. Perhaps the budget is an issue because if more toasted malt was present this may not be a bad lager. It feels a bit thin, though, and the extra carbonation makes it less smooth than I think they hoped.

I came at this open minded but find it an average delivery, but not nearly as poor as some.
