2.18/5  rDev -21%

Part of a mixed 6 pack.

A- not very amber...quite gold in colour, big head of foam, not much lacing.

S- grainy, with a mix of some sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Not much of an aroma at all.

T- pretty bland tasting. The grain is the highlight as I find the malt dull/muted, brings nothing to the table. What hoppiness is there is a mere non enjoyable bitter flavour that also doesn't do anything good for the beer.

M- bigger body than Bud but the carbonation is vrazy fizzy.

O- pretty poor example of a Red Lager, not even a good example of a beer.

Bitter, almost sour. Not red in color as amber would suggest. Not terribly pleasant but the ABV gives a good kick from an atypical macro. Kudos to Budweiser for the effort though.

This is a decent brew in the Macro 6% abv, beer category. I did not pour this beer into a glass from a bottle, so that I can enjoy the nuances of the brew itself - as I enjoyed this beer at a dimly lit establishment.

This beer is highly effervescent, too effervescent I must say, in which the bite of the bubbles sting your palate. Taste is similar to a regular Budweiser beer, but slightly sweeter due to its ABV content. Overall, I would drink this beer with burgers or dogs, and then move on to quality craft brews. Bon Appetit!

Not bad for Budweiser, has a real beer taste... got to say .... this might be one of my favorites from the bud family... I thought this was going to be to Budweiser what Bud light platinum is to bud light, but the flavor is distinct ... Good job guys

22oz. bomber born on december 21st. poured into mason jar for appearance

look is slightly more dark than regular bud. smell is also very similar: sweet corn, metal, pale stinky malts. feel is light-medium, finishes without any cloying sweetness. taste is like a more full bodied, flavorful bud.

batch 19 takes a poo on this
