Picked up a 25 oz can at Lowes Foods. Handsome reddish amber color with orange highlights. Head shows solid resiliancy for a few minutes at least. Nose is caramel malt and sprobably some sugary adjuncts. Call it a guess.

Broad, refreshing character in the taste, with mellow malt flavors and just a hint of hops. Texture could be tightened a touch but for the style holds 5.7% with surprising ease.

This is an inexpensiive option when you just feel like having a basic lager.

$7.88 for a TWELVE pack with a saver grocery card. Couldn't resist not trying this one, especially when I'm used to those $8 bombers.

Poured into a duvel-inspired pint glass. Looks as it says, a murky muddy honey color, with tinges of copper. Opacity/Transparency is 50/50 on this one. The head starts off strong at 3 fingers but as with all A/B products this one can't seem to hold on for very long before diminishing to a small ring. Kudos though, as it's still hanging around and clinging to the glass.

Aroma is sweet and semi-metallic; it has elements of well-executed baked malt and caramel, but still retains a lot of that typical adjunct "beeriness". Dry corn. Overall it just can't escape the grasp of the macro paper-bag-type nature on the nose.

Flavor is extremely sweet and malty, almost cloyingly so. Flavors consist of sweet corn, tomato, dry barley, tobacco, and sugars. The finish is tobacco and caramel, with more sweet corn. It's got an uncanny resemblence to Budweiser regular on the finish.

Feel is starchy and sticky, with a good dose of carbonation welling up towards the middle to help push it down. The finish is starchy and sticky, just as it started.

Overall for the price paid I think I got a pretty decent lager. This isn't going to win any awards and "signature" seems to be a bit over the top, but I guess if that's their signature, this is about as good as we can expect from the Busch line. I don't think this is terrible by any strech, and a helluva lot better than Coors' Killian, and I think I'll enjoy the rest of the 12 pack out of the bottle as the days roll by. Not bad.

This was about the best choice of the Exxon station I stopped at while heading back to my hotel in Grapevine, TX.

Poured into a glass, the beer is copper with a large but quickly collapsing beige head.

It has an aroma of grains and a bit of apple.

The taste is slightly sweet with grainy and grass notes. There is a bit of caramel and a bit of floral based bitterness. It has no off or odd tastes. It would be pretty easy to match with non-spicy foods.

The mouth is medium with active carbonation.

This was a pleasant surprise and priced well to boot!

Sorry beer snobs, but this one aint bad.

Right outta the bottle :)

Sure it's from the folks at Bud and it doesn't have the cute 'craft' name (gimmicky?) or the art on the packaging that most beer kiddies seem to fall in love with but a nice beer.

Taste - not bad, goes down easy with mild adjunct aftertaste. No real head, and color is great, but I can't drink color so no big deal..

25 fl oz. can, canned on June 29, 2015. Giant can gifted to me as a Christmas gift from a friend.

Poured into a Bridgeport pint glass.

A - Pours a coppery brown body, truly copper in color. Less than a finger of thin wispy bubbly head that goes down within seconds. Looks alright for what it is, I suppose.

S - Aroma is dusty & malty. Toasty & nutty. More malt forward than anything else.

T - Flavor follows the nose: cheap, dusty, grainy, malty. Mild suggestions of toasty / nutty malts. Fairly inoffensive, and not phenolic or boozy like shit like Max Ice or Steel Reserve 211.

M - Feel is smooth & crisp. Fairly easy drinking with okay carb.

Overall, not awful for what it is. Inoffensive, but not something I'd go out of my way for.

Busch Signature Copper Lager -----3/5.

Let's be honest. Sometimes the budget gets tight and you want a relatively decent beer that doesn't drain the bank account. Just like it's hard to eat steak every night on a budget. This isn't the best beer out there, but it is good for the price point and good for what it is. This has joined a short list of go-to cheap beers for me since it is about half the cost of the average craft beer. I generally prefer quality over quantity, but... sometimes I want quantity too.

A: Thick head, but dissolved very quickly and left no remnant.
S: Not much that I can detect. More nonexistent than offensive.
T: Slightly grainy taste; smooth and easy to drink.
F: Kind of dry on the finish for me, with very little aftertaste.
O: It's very drinkable, and that's a good thing.

Pours a crystal clear very light amberish, close in color to a finished piece of maple wood, with a near snow white head that is gone fairly fast.
Taste: clean, nothing offensive but not much here to talk about. I get a hint of vanilla and caramel sweetness and a drying finish.
Typical american low priced macro. Thirst quenching beer with little character.

Let's put this in perspective. This ain't no micro-brew lager. Drank from a 25 ounce can. Nice copper color, as the label says.. Smells of corn, tastes of barley and corn. It's definitely an adjunct beer. That said, it has a nice malt body, is very drinkable, the price point is low, can't ask for more when I've done a hard-days work and I need to catch a buzz for $4. Serves it purpose very well.
