Tasty! A pleasant surprise from AB. Fun to see the big boys try something different. I'm a Yuengling fan and this seems like a comprable alternative (Ive likley betrayed my ignorance, but who cares) Really just learning about beer, so I don't know art, but I know what I like, and I like!

22oz bottle split and poured into a snifter. Born on 01May13.

A: Pours a clear amber with a one finger mostly white head that sticks around for two minutes or so. No real lacing. Very little visible carbonation.

S: Light tone of pale malts and macro lager. Aroma is quite subdued which I guess is a bonus for cheaper beers.

T: Similar to a Budweiser but with a more evened out malt. Not sure if the beechwood really comes through as much more than a devise to smooth out the flavor. Turns a bit sweet as it warms.

M: Light to medium body with fairly low carbonation. Pretty clean finish which helps its drinkability.

Overall I like it more than the original Budweiser and think it has a good position in the macro beer market. Don't mind seeing the big guys being "crafty" when they keep the same brand name.

Everyone is saying this is a red it is a golden. Which is even stated on the AB website. I like the fizzy taste after a hard days work it wakes up the palate. Washing down the dust from hard work. I would like to see a little of smoke added to the flavor profile. Maybe after roasting the hops run a little smoke of them.
