Pours a medium shade amber color with a tall fluffy, creamy head (aided with agitation and swirling in the bottle before pouring the last ounces). The head dies down to 1/2 finger and a creamy ring. The opacity is 20%.

Aroma of toasted malts, brown bread crust, brown sugar, pickle juice, band-aid. A deep kerosene/ethyl smell also surfaces with deep inhalation.

Taste is very watery and washed out. Right behind the water is antiseptic, pasty caramel malt, brown bread crust, and a caramel nutty finish.

Light bodied, even for an amber lager, and mushy carbonation leads off into a semi-dry finish.

Overall, even if I could get this again I wouldn't. Batch Twelve needed to die, and that it did.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Clear medium amber, with a robust, dense white head, which retains quite well. Scattered, thin lacing adorns the glass walls, the carbonation is profuse and fast-rising.

Aroma: Rich aroma of caramel and toasted light bread. there is a mild herbal hop presence, also.

Taste: Opens with caramel and toasted malt, these basic flavors carry the taste throughout. The aroma led me to believe that these taste would be rather bold. Its not, unfortunately, the taste of Batch No. 91406 seems weak and washed out in comparison to the aroma. Finishes with a mild, slightly peppery hop note.

Mouth feel: Soft, pleasant, with a hint of carbonation, a touch thin, though.

Drinkability/notes: Not bad, ore than a little reminiscent of ZeigenBock Amber or Shiner Bock.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice. This example has been refrigerated since purchase.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #72 (Jan 2013):

The highlight here is that the beer was finished on beechwood chips, which are usually used to provide more surface space for yeast during the fermentation of Budweiser. While it’s noticeable, its overpowered by a near cloying sweetness and a misplaced caramel note.

SMELL: Caramel, floral, hint of wood, clean
