4.08/5  rDev +24.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- Pours a bright, light golden color with a 2-3 finger head. Retention is good, and lacing is good, but not great. Clarity is high and there is a ton of rising carbonation.

S- Light a crisp with a small dose of hops. Citrus and pine flavors are the dominant hops flavors in the smell, with a small, but bright burst of bitterness.

T- Starts with a small amount of hops bitterness before moving towards a more classic, light, crisp lager taste. The hops return towards the end of the drink with a small punch of bitterness.

M- Light and crisp, and very well balanced. Tremendously drinkable.

Overall, this is a lager equivalent of a session IPA. A little lighter on the hops bitterness than a session IPA, but light, refreshing, crisp, and just a bit hoppy. This is a pretty solid beer.

3.11/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Clear deep gold with two fingers of white head that fades rather quickly. Very minor lacing.
Smell is mild bready malt. Taste is lightly sweet bready malts with a touch of bitter hops at the end. Slightly boozy. Mouthfeel is thin with low carbonation. Overall a bit of a letdown. If my calculations are correct this beer is at least seven months old so take that into account.

3.76/5  rDev +15%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: pours clear and golden with one finger head that dissipated quickly into a thin broken layer of small bubbles, lightly carbonated, very little lacing.

SMELL: flowers and citrus, somewhat assertive.

TASTE: initially sweet with citrus and then a pleasantly mild hop profile and finishes clean and crisp.

PALATE: medium body and lightly carbonated.

OVERALL: Anheuser-Busch is trying to enter the "craft beer" market. Good for them. This is probably the best beer I've had from this brewer. I hope they continue on this path.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug. Pours a light dark golden straw with a small white head. Smells of nice roasted malt with a nice aged smell and a little spice. Tastes of nice roasted malt with some earthy hops, nice tastes. Beer is light bodied good carbonation, good finish. Overall a very good beer.

3.09/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance - starts off with a good finger of snow white foam, sitting atop a clear golden brew. The head fades fast, but the appearance is enhanced by the number of tendrils sending up streams of bubbles.

Aroma - a light floral orange note, sort of like a Blue Moon. Not much else.

Taste - much like the nose, there is just a hint of orangy character. Basic macro grain base, sturdy but uninspiring. A light bitter twang on the finish, clean and slightly drying.

Mouthfeel - smooth and crisp, a solid lager feel.

Overall - okay, nothing crazy. A lawnmower beer with a little twist.
