look: 1.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - More golden and pale than red, two fingers of thin head. Absolutely no lacing.

S - Definitely more to the nose than a typical adjunct. Sweet grains.

T/M - Sweet grains, banana, and the signature Budweiser yeast.

O - Quite tasty for what it is. However, maybe a bit high in alcohol for a sessionable lager.

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, copper colored body. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves little lace.

S - Sweet, nutty malt with a touch of caramel.

T - Lots of malty sweetness up front with a touch of spicy hop character in the middle and a finish of sweet grain.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - Surprisingly, this isn't just repacaged bud, it is much heavier and maltier than I expected. Still, that isn't to say it is exactly good. The malt comes across well enough, but they are still afraid of hops, both flavor wise and in terms of bitterness. With some balance it could have been decent, but as it stands it is a bit flabby and cloying.

12 oz. bottle "born on" date of 3/5/13, consumed 5/11/13.

Into a pint glass, a clear pale amber color with one finger of off white head. Quick fade to a thin cap. Nose is overly sweet and grassy. Taste faintly of malt alcohol, no real hopiness. Taste is not as sweet as nose, thankfully. Faint alcohol note on finish. Mouth is a bit thin and bubbly, OK. Overall: Rather mediocre, not terrible, kind of what I'd imagine as a sub-par example of pub ale, except it's 6% ABV so it's not exactly a "session" beer. I wouldn't buy another but wouldn't turn one down either.

A: It has a nice light-ish amber color, white foamy head, less carbonated than regular Budweiser.

S: Pleasant smells of roasted malts, more defined beechwood aroma, maybe a little hop profile, at it's minimalist.

T: Very pleasant, no offensive adjunct tastes like corn or rice, starts out with a roasted malty profile with a bitter middle and smooth finish. Way better than the original Budweiser.

M: Light-Medium feel, has a more pleasant experience than regular Bud and is consistent.

O: I like this beer better than the regular Bud by far, but it's not my go to beer unless Heineken was sold out in my local gas station/mart/store. It's all around pretty decent.
