I picked up a 1pt, 9.36 oz large bottle at Total Wine for $3.99.
I slowly poured the whole bottle into my dimpled 1 liter Paulaner seidel. It was a hazy pale straw yellow and a bit watery at the edges. A small bubbled thick foamy head crowned the top. My wife said it looks like meringue which seems appropriate given the lemony color of the beer and the citrus notes. Not a lot of lacing and the foam receded to a thin blanket.
The fragrances were as expected; citrus rinds, orange peel, spices lead by coriander.
The flavors were herbaceous, slightly spicy led by the coriander and maybe hints of nutmeg, Citrus rind was bright and up front.
In the mouth it was crisp, refreshing and cleansing.
All in all not bad for something made by Budweiser.
