An improvement on the classic... but still.

I have low expectations for Anheuser-Busch products. While this is a simple tasting beer that would by no means interest the average craft beer drinker it does greatly exceed my expectations going to sampling it.

Almost, but not quite. Much better than most AB attempts, especially those in Bud family, but I think this beer is supposed to be compared to some of the craft stuff, and is priced that way too. That being said, it's not great. I would much rather spend my $$$ on many other beers.

I actually really enjoyed this to my surprise. Has a sweet but not overbearing quality and is very smooth. I could drink these all day. Basically no hop bite but an interesting beer if you want something you don't need to disect.

If you like the taste and drink-ability of A-B beers, you'll love this one. Best of the Budweiser/Michelob lineage. A great tasting beer that's available at any gas station, C-store or supermarket.

I like craft beers, I like bud light and I thought this would be worth a try. It was like a watered down amber ale with apple flavoring. Attractive packaging, but I can't imaging they'll be brewing this one for the long term.

I try to avoid generic reviewing practices, but this beer is just that. It is kind of down the middle in an okay way. A clean beer with plenty or carbonation. I almost picked up an apple juice type of aftertaste. I like to abuse Bud, but I wasn't angry with this. I would say it may be my favourite beer in the Budweiser line. When you brew on the level that Anheuser-Busch does (supplying the world) this may be as good as it gets.

Pours a golden-amber color (guess they knew what they were doing by writing "GOLDEN AMBER LAGER" on the bottle!), nice head for the style, decent lacing, moderately carbonated. Aroma - roasty toasty bready notes, lightly sweet, faint hops, maybe some faint green apple. Taste - follows nose perfectly. Finishes crisp with no aftertaste. No alcohol at all at 6%. Fantastic.

This is an outstanding lager. I really don't know what all of these people who give terrible reviews of this beer are expecting. I've read several, so it's not like I'm just ranting without reason. It truly appears they either don't know what they're talking about, simply hate lagers and/or large brewers, or just are making things up to suit the terrible rating they give.

Whatever the case, it's a bit sad. Wonderful beer, would recommend to all.

The only reason I got this was because I had a very limited selection and I didn't want to buy a sugary cheap cider or wine cooler. Brewed a month and a half ago and poured into a goblet.

Look: Crystal clear amber with a quickly diminishing white head and carbonation that swirls upwards as if trying to escape.

Smell: Mild fruity yeast and cracker with a touch of alcohol.

Taste: Exactly mimics the nose with cracker malt, mild fruity yeast, and a tiny bit of alcohol.

Feel: Very crisp and dry at the end. Lots of carbonation.

Overall: This is a Budweiser variety, need I say more? It's cheaply made and I wouldn't be surprised if the little malt that there is were malt extract. You might as well get Fat Tire if you are looking for a mild flavor such as this, even though this is an amber lager and not an amber ale. Oh, and not to mention Fat Tire is brewed by one of the best breweries ever.

Good Amber color. Smooth taste with strong lager finish. Nice compliment to Bud stable.

This is a good beer. Smooth with a little kick. Throw in sal y and a Lime and it gives it that extra kick needed. The taste of the black crown is more powerful than the lime. Which is good in its own since. Also this somehow will get you tipsy without trying

Bought it thinking it might be decent, but it was just typical macro watered down beer. Last time ill ever pay for a macro.

Much better than the original and any other macro. Still wouldn't ever drink it again though

2.49/5  rDev -9.1%
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.
