Budweiser Copper Lager (Aged on Jim Beam Bourbon Barrel Staves) brewed by Anheuser-Busch, with an ABV of 6.20% This American Amber/Red Ale pours out a nice deep amber color almost copper in color with a small white head. The head to this brew goes away fast, not saying that is a bad thing. There is a decent amount of spotty lacing, it does stick to the side of the glass well. Really digging the copper color of this brew. The smell is rich with grians and malts mixed with bourbon. You also pick up on mild hop bitterness in the smell as well. Between the look and smell this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with flavors. You first pick up a light mild sweetness, mixed with grains and malts. The bourbon notes are there as well as mild hop bitterness. The body of Budweiser Copper Lager is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. It is really hard to pick up on the 6.20% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. This brew would go nice with dinner, or a cool day. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Smooth, Clean, Bourbon and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Budweiser Copper Lager a soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Anheuser-Busch, did a real nice job with this brew.

I got a 6pck of this from my local meijer. It poured a clear amber with white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had malt and faint bourbon. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with faint coffee, malt and bourbon notes. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Pours a dark amber, copper color with about a finger of off-white to tan head. Caramel malt on the nose, touch on the sweet side, light scent. Taste is sweet, caramel, vanilla, oak, maybe a hint of bourbon but not sure on that. Moderate carbonation. Overall, not bad, certainly drinkable and decent value for the price. Will go well with the pizza and college football I have planned for today.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a teku glass

It pours a brilliant rust color with copper highlights. It is topped with less than an inch of tan head that leaves sparse lacing.

The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and vanilla.

The taste has hints of oak and vanilla. The finish is a little dry.

Very smooth mouthfeel. Medium bodied

This is not a bad beer. Listening to Chris Stapleton makes it better. A slug of Jim Beam makes it even better.

From the bottle, it pours a lovely copper color with a small head, soon diminishing to nothing. Caramel malts in the nose. The mouth gets the same. Pleasant overall.

Beautiful deep copper color. Even the head has a slight red tinge. Impressive. Smell is similar to a molasses and honey smell. I would say the honey is the aroma that stands out the most. Taste subtle hints of vanilla, however the corn flavor is overpowering. It does however leave a very sweet after taste of honey and malt. The mouth feel is very carbonated, even after pouring into a glass to release the carbonation. It does leave a slight tingling feeling in the mouth and throat after swallowing. I'm not a regular Budweiser consumer however the collaboration between Jim Beam and Budweiser made me try this brew. Is this something I would order again? Yes. I could see this pairing very well with a pork chop and asparagus. I believe it would compliment it nicely. Perhaps even a blue cheese crumble salad would see a benefit of this brew.

Slight semi orange head, awesome crystal clear dark amber color. Minimal smell, slight caramel and grain. I do not detect a bourbon odor. Taste is initially sweet with some caramel malt followed by a slight bitterness. There is a slight alcohol warmth in the back of the throat. It’s almost like the heat you get from doing a shot. If I concentrate I think I get a hint of bourbon flavor on the back end. There is minimal carbonation, but enough. Overall, for a macro brewery it’s not bad. I’d have to say they did a good job on this one. I still think I like the freedom reserve better though.
