Guide Review - Tasting Notes and Review for Budweiser American Ale from Anheuser-Busch
Second Tasting - from a bottle at my home. It was shipped to me from Anheuser-Busch in August 2008 in anticipation of the September 2008 release. The ale pours with clear, light copper body, lots of big bubbles and a medium off-white head with some rockiness. The nose is mild and malty with hints of fig. Tasting the beer presents the expected straight ahead maltiness. But this malty beginning is pierced by a bright hoppy finish that lingers on the tongue. Well balanced and very enjoyable. Upon this tasting I upgraded my rating from 2.5 stars to 4.
