2.72/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

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.

12 ounce bottle
Served in a pilsner glass

A - It is amber in color. I got an inch of off-white head that settled to a quarter inch and hung around.

S - It has a sweet aroma that I noticed rights away. I also get some grain and grass. There is a metallic note as well.

T - It has a grain taste. It reminds me of rye. I also get a metallic taste. It has a very dry finish.

M - Thin and dry.

O - It has more taste than Bud, but not a lot more. I don't care for the dry finish. It keeps reminding me of Bud Dry.

Pours a deep golden amber color with a quickly dissipating off white head. The aroma is sweet and malty with a grainy honey like caramel nose. I found little to no hop aroma. The flavor is sweet and does have a bit of caramel and light sugar in there. There's just enough spicy hops to keep this from cloying and to keep inbev from spending any more money on hops than is absolutely necessary. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet almost sugary mouthfeel. Too sweet and a bit boring.

Budweiser Project 12 : Batch 91406

LOOK: Pours a light orange color with a fizzy froth that recedes to a fine film.

SMELL: Rice, Budweiser house yeast and a little bit of bready malt sweetness. There is also a hint of wood and grass.

TASTE: Sweet malts upfront that come off a bit grainy. Almost no hop character and just a small presence of wood, almost flies under the radar. Tastes like a macro lager with some dignity, but still finishes like regular Bud. Rice, corn and watery caramel. Finishes a bit sweet with a caramel/vanilla like flavor. Fleeting bland bitterness and husky grain round out the finish.

FEEL: Light to medium bodied with a good amount of crisp carbonation. Has a pretty good fullness to it and is not overly watery.

OVERALL: This is a step in the right direction for Budweiser. A beer with some integrity that actually has some flavor. Not too bad.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a off-white yellowish two finger head. The head has a decent level of retention fading over about 4 min to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is largely of sweet corn with some caramel complementing this. Along with these aromas are some lightly roasted malt smells.

Taste – The taste begins with flavor of a bready and corny sweet taste. As the flavor advances some lighter caramel flavors come to the tongue with the corn sweetness becoming more intense in nature. A bit of a lighter herbal and woody flavors later come to the tongue. A bit of booziness and a somewhat off cardboard taste then come to the tongue at the end. While present these more off flavors don’t take too much away from the brew and leave a bready and sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to above average side with a carbonation level that is the same. A moderate carbonation is quite appropriate for eh style and drinkability of the beer, although a lightly less thick body may have been better for making a more easy drinking brew, as this should be.

Overall – It was alright with malt and sweetness but as it lacked a good hop and complexity profile. OK, but nothing really worth the added price (as it is more expensive than the average malt/standard American adjunct) over something of a more standard, cheaper drinking brew.

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.
