From the tap into a nonic.
A-The beer came to me with only a light ring of white-ish foam around the edge of the glass. The brew was amber/reddish orange in color with a few streams of carbonation.
S-Not much happening on the nose. There was a light whiff of cereal and toasted malt, but you had to really dig deep to pick anything up.
T-Taste is similarly weak with just a touch of caramel and cereal flavors. No real hop presence and the malts that were there were pretty subdued.
M-This was drinkable with fizzy carbonation on the front end and a clean finish. The feel was a touch watery, but not as bad as some brews.
O-I have had worse beers than this, but I have certainly had better. As noted above, the brew is drinkable, but the smell is non-existent and the taste is similarly light. The flavors are not bad, there just isn't much to comment on. Might be a good golfing beer.

This was a great beer way back when, after being bought by anheuser busch, and replacing hops with two row malts, this is nothing more than a Budweiser with extra malts and a horrible natti ice aftertaste. Shame on this company for buying out and ruining a beer that has been around since artist like Monet and dictators like Napoleon Bonaparte. Just another casualty in the war of the beers. Seems any good beers will be bought out and watered down if they sell out. I will not even do the beer review in terms of mouthfeel, ect , cause to be honest its not worth it, as it fails all tests..Now I only speak of the usa version by anheuser busch, I remember the uk version being delicious!

Bass pours a dark golden color with a very small but lacing head. There is a mellow caramel aroma, with some corn like notes. The taste has some caramel malt flavors, but a lot of adjunct flavors afterwards. Slightly odd flavors, bad aftertaste. Overall its not horrible, and has some nice flavors, but a really bad aftertaste.
