2.49/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours a quickly dissipated 2 finger head that leaves little in the way of lacing. Color was deep golden-copper...I don't see the red. Lots of action going on in the glass as well.

Smell: Picking up a little malt...I think. Some stale hops too. Wait...There's the hops and some other metallic smell too.

Taste: Light caramel malt with noticeable alcohol in the back. Bitterness is at least balanced but not enough character to support alcohol content.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and smooth. Goes down fast and would suffice as a lawnmower. Carbonation is a tad high and decreases the smoothness a touch.

Overall: Not the worst beer I've ever had and certainly not the worst from the brewer. This is one of the better efforts from AB.

Do not taste the hint of caramel they refer to, however a lot lighter than I originally anticipated It to be. I would drink it again.

Probably my favorite Budweiser. It surprised me a bit.
