Caramel sweet upfront with spicy hop halfway through followed up with more tea-like sweetness. As the beer warms, I pick up more toasted malt and grains. Light bodied and smooth drinking.

A: Pours a crystal clear copper in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation that rises quickly from the bottom of the glass and some amber highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized thick cap in the center of the glass surrounded by a medium thick layer covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts with a light aroma of caramel sweetness. Also there are some light aromas of grassy + herbal hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of toasted malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of grassy + herbal hops which imparts a very light amount of bitterness which does not linger for long.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Surprise, surprise...this beer does not have the aroma or flavor of skunk which is surprising considering I grabbed it as a single in a grocery store with bright fluorescent lights and it comes in a green bottle. Better than I was expecting, since I was expecting the skunkiness to be present but still not an amazing representation of the style. Easy to drink.

Sampled earlier this evening on 9/13/14 and had this once a few years back. Used to be made in Germany but now made by Budweiser in St. Louis, Missouri. 12 ounce bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 'Beck's vintage handled glass stein.

Pours a medium / darker amber in color with a thin off-white head. Really no lacing to mention. The aroma is of just some malts, nothing special really. The taste is about the same with some bread (yeast) in the mix as well. A bit 'watery' though. Lighter bodied with medium carbonation as would be excepted from a 'Bud" product. Overall, it was OK.
