from Missouri3.87/5rDev +10.6%look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4Pours a dark bloody-burgundy v a clear transparency the drops come a tiny foggy in ~ the center. Head is a finger and also a fifty percent of khaki foam. Head retention is good. Aroma is caramel, molasses, vanilla bean, toffee and also chocolate with toasty, nutty and caramely malts. Over there is twinge of whiskey at the back, however not much. Flavor file brings together the very same syrupy connection - toffee, molasses, caramel and vanilla bean through a very light bourbon slow-ooze at the end. Malts space toasty, nutty and caramely. Mouth feel is tool in thickness through a light crispness the pairs well through a usual velvety texture. Overall, a small syrupy, however otherwise fair. Offered in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip native a 22oz bottle.Jun 06, 2020
native Canada (AB)3.5/5rDev 0%look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5473ml deserve to - ns can"t specifically (ok, fine) phone call if the marketing blurb at the top of the label has actually so plenty of unnecessarily capitalized nouns because 1: they read too numerous Trump tweets, or 2: they space adhering come their distant Teutonic past. No matter, as marketing have to be a thing to be completely avoided, yet is supposedly my literary bane, as it were. Anyhoo...This beer pours a clear, dark bronzed amber colour, with 3 fingers that puffy, rocky, and sort the chunky tan head, i m sorry leaves part splendid spidery sample lace roughly the glass together it evenly subsides.It smells the semi-sweet, grainy and bready caramelized malt, a bruised residential pome fruitiness, some generically ethereal boozy wooden notes that (as my mommy used to describe store-bought chicken noodle soup) it seems to be ~ to have actually simply trod through things wearing rubber boots, a note of wispy smoke, and nothing else, really. The taste is grainy and biscuity caramel malt, a reasonably hard come discern rye-esque woody significance (see above), tho muddled and confused apples and cheap pear flesh, and also a feeling of hop bitterness that should be there, but obviously is not.The carbonation is pretty tame in its usually benign frothiness, the body a nice DTF tool weight, and an ext or much less smooth, with a tenderness aerosol creaminess lingering about, wonder why the "cool" girls won"t give him/her/them the moment of day. It finishes off-dry, the malt and also barely-there, committee-mandated bittering balance out juuuuuust make those 3rd quarter targets.Overall - yeah, I gain that this would certainly be a polarizing relax (from both ends of the spectrum), but I have actually to offer credit wherein credit is due. Sure, the "barrel" equation below doesn"t add up come squat, but the malt bill and general easiness of intake (the an ext general, modern meaning of the term) do for a pleasing quaff, no lie. If us cannot satisfy in the middle, then, uh, so it is in it, ns guess.Mar 07, 2020

from Michigan2.91/5rDev -16.9%look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3So, I"m prefer "A bourbon barrel age lager?" I had actually to try it. I felt sort of dirty to buy Budweiser. It"s mine go-to beer to hate.Poured right into a beer mug. The color is really attractive. A beautiful, clear, copper red. This ain"t Bud light!Smell is not really complex, just some malty sweetness, v the slightest hint the bourbon. But it"s an extremely nice. Taste follows smell, an extremely sweet and also malty, yet not corny. A very slight bourbon bite, yet not much. Part metallic taste lingers, which i don"t discover offensive. Mouthfeel is thin, however not watery.Overall, I"m glad ns tried it. It"s a palatable brew indigenous Budweiser. No very strong or facility in the flavor department, however at least more exciting that your mean adjunct lager. I wouldn"t buy it on purpose, but I"d be happy to uncover it offered at a party. Probably a first step in cultivate to have your very first New Holland Dragon"s Milk.Feb 16, 2020
from new York3.11/5rDev -11.1%look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75Copper /amber color, small head disappears quickly. Sleep is toffee, caramel, malt sweetness. Taste is really sweet. I am obtaining caramel, vanilla, toffee, part cinnamon, yet the sweet is the overriding aspect here. No hop visibility at all. No citrus notes. It"s absolutely a sweet, malt front lager. Tool mouthfeel. The front and middle is an ext syrupy and oily, but the end up borders more on the dry end. Not also bad. A lot far better than other abdominal muscle offering, yet is no something ns would look for out again.Dec 19, 2019
from Virginia3.62/5rDev +3.4%look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75Poured through a how amazing compact off-white foam head and also a crystal clear copper body. An extremely minor effervescence is likewise present. The scent of the bourbon barrel aging comes throughout nicely, along with a slight woodiness and also vanilla (bottle says toasted Oak, which appears believable). Taste is muted, however what does come throughout is nice: caramel is many evident, followed by grains and also vanilla. The feeling is really smooth and also creamy throughout, through minimal to no bitterness in the aftertaste and minor sweetness. Honestly, this is rather drinkable, specifically when searching for something a bit an ext muted.Dec 16, 2019
native Minnesota3.85/5rDev +10%look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5Drank straight from bottle - has actually a really sweet, malty nose. Taste is hops in front, followed by sweetness. End up is sweet, rounded the end by soft hoppiness. Overall not bad!Dec 13, 2019
indigenous Alabama3.63/5rDev +3.7%look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75I’ve noticed Bud making an ext varieties the beer the last few years, probably because of the explosion of exceptional craft brews, and while i don’t frequently drink noþeles from abdominal unless a friend offers one, i figured I’d try it out. Drank directly from the bottle, for this reason not lot ranking on look, despite the party is sort of succinct looking. Aroma no much, simply a hint of sweetness under typical Budweiser tones. Taste is sweet, v caramel up front and also vanilla in the back. Simply a little too sweet for my taste once ice cold, however the sweet wears turn off a bit as it warms up, make this a drinkable beer for those who aren’t specifically snobby and also don’t want to pay craft prices. Best component is mouthfeel. Creamy, smooth, pretty lingering aftertaste. And also the 6.2% ABV really sneaks up on you: the alcohol is no noticeable in ~ all until the buzz hits. There room far better bourbon-barrel beers the end there, yet none for well under $10 a 6-pack (I paid $6.50). Overall, not bad for a cheap macro brew.Dec 07, 2019
from new Jersey3.47/5rDev -0.9%look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75This is a pretty beer from Budweiser. Smooth and also easy drinking. No hop bitterness yet not too many sweet. Carmel malts and a slight oak keep in mind are the main flavors. Glad ns tried it but not likely to buy again.Dec 01, 2019

from south Dakota3.31/5rDev -5.4%look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5Poured from a bottle into a high tap glass.Pours decision clear and also reddish amber through a quite fluffy light tan head that hangs around well. Mild however visible carbonation.Caramel and toasted malts are forward on the nose v vanilla, oak, and also a touch the grassy hop in the background.The brew is fairly sweet ~ above the reminder of the tongue with caramel sweet malts cut with a bit of toasted character. Bready and yeasty spices greet the mid-palate together with vanilla seasonings that become an ext woody/oaky together the temperature rises; but every one of it is still somewhat overwhelmed by the candy-sweet as whole presentation. The brew does complete with just a little of grassy hop flavor. The brew is solidly medium. Regardless of the in its entirety sweet flavor, the brew is not sticky. It has actually nice carbonation and also remarkably drying finish. But for the overriding sweetness, this is one otherwise substantial flavorful giving from the self-styled king of macros.Nov 28, 2019
native Canada (ON)3.45/5rDev -1.4%look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5Gonna do this one a fast one, head promptly disappeared and also crimson lager can be a bit more appropriate a surname here. Smell is unsurprisingly strong bourbon, together that strong vanilla, and also molasses sweetness yes, really comes out. The taste however, is a little boring, maybe due to the fact that apart indigenous caramel and also corn like malt in ~ the start of the beer, the bourbon constrain the flavour together vanilla, spice and also a solvent and also wood end rounds united state out. Ns guess ns can"t price it also low, as that is the key selling suggest here. Points acquire deducted because that the absence of head, and also that a 6.2% should have the ability to hide the alcohol content, however the carbonation is good, as is the transistioning. Overall, it"s medium bodied and interesting if friend are an ext interested in the bourbon climate the beer, i m so sad I"m not, together I want the beer and barrel come compliment every other. Decent enough though ns suppose.Jul 31, 2019
native Canada (ON)3.61/5rDev +3.1%look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75473 mL have the right to from The Beer Store; date Mar 31 2019 and served fine chilled. If I"m analysis the code stamp correctly, this to be brewed in Montreal, i m sorry is also where they brew the GI stuff sold in this market.Pours a clear, deep amber-copper colour, crowned with an customs of smooth, creamy, off white-coloured head that steadily dissipates end the next 5 minutes or so. A beautifully even, sponge-printed coat of lace is left in that wake, as it is eventually eroded come a vast collar encircling a slim cap - currently this is a good-looking brew. It smells mainly of toffee and butterscotch, with notes that bourbon, vanilla and also bready malts also coming through. A tiny on the sweet side because that my preference, but appealing enough.It"s much better than i would"ve expected. The profile certainly leans sweet, through caramel/toffee sweet layered atop bready malts and also oak, sprinkled through subtler clues of bourbon and vanilla. The latter two elements, along with the oak staves, linger with to the finish, and also into a malty-sweet aftertaste that gradually fades. Tool in body, with light carbonation levels the limply brush versus the tongue; this one has a reasonably creamy, smooth texture on the palate, not unlike some of the English pale ales that i enjoy. The alcohol is barely perceptible, yet it tho sips choose a solid lager - something to use as a night capper, maybe.Final Grade: 3.61, a serviceable B grade. Copper Lager is the best abdominal Budweiser-labelled beer that I"ve tried for this reason far. I"ve never been much of a bourbon drinker, and also amber lagers space not a format that ns deliberately look for out... And yet, this one doesn"t bother me in ~ all. In fact, I favor it enough to think about picking it increase on chance in the future. An ext than just inoffensive, this tastes precisely the method I"d mean a "Copper Lager" with the Jim Beam logo design plastered ~ above the brand to taste, and that"s yes, really the best I can have hoped because that from this. Precious a same shake.Jul 26, 2019
from Canada (MB)3.57/5rDev +2%look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5Mainstream Busweiser surprises. Nice watch and good head, weak ~ above the aroma but likely the best for the Bud brand, quite liquor-ish vanilla / caramel flavour with that dark beer touch. Pretty to enjoy or have with a meal. Will give some micro brews a challenge.Jun 30, 2019
indigenous Michigan4.01/5rDev +14.6%look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4I was captured with my lips down! My totality life i puked at Budweiser and everything they ever before pissed out for general consumption and this one adjusted my mind! finally a vast mainstream brewer beginning the compete craft market with a product that is an ext than just words. It has actually a slightly higher rush than most moderately elevated ABV"s and also does not disappoint a actual bier trinker.Jun 12, 2019
indigenous Florida3.99/5rDev +14%look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4Very decent, cool and also refreshing. Flavorful without gift overly bitterness or citrusy. Nice well balanced flavor v a slight sweet finish. An excellent with a wide selection of food.Jun 07, 2019
from Canada (AB)3.57/5rDev +2%look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5I thought this would certainly be utter garbage but it was decent. Caramel, vanilla, and lots that sweet bourbon overwhelm the macro the lingers in the background. Naught overly facility but I dislike to speak it however its drinkable. The being said I just don"t recognize the target consumer and also I don"t mean this come be roughly for long, beer geeks are never going come buy this and also Bud drinkers aren"t walking to favor it in ~ all..........Jun 07, 2019
from Washington3.68/5rDev +5.1%look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75Poured right into a Seattle Beer mainly pint glass. Pours a tool to dark coppery amber through a two finger off-white head with good retention and good lacing; look at nice. Aroma of gentle biscuit and also caramel malt, oak and also a tiny vanilla. Flavor is mild biscuit malt with slight caramel, oaky vanilla and also a tiny wood astringency that melds in the finish with the light grassy hops I expect from Budweiser. Tool bodied with light creaminess. Well, I had to shot this. My suffer with barreled short ABV ales has actually not been stellar, even from good breweries and this go nothing to change my mind. It does have actually a much much more interesting flavor then a typical adjunct lager, however it pretty much is what i expected: a irradiate beer v some barrel character, yet not enough to make it scare anyone. The oak notes space clear, if a little woody, i beg your pardon his far better than expected. Over there is a reason that virtually no one barrels session beers and also this is a an excellent example, yet made to it is in inoffensive. Frankly, I"d rather have this than traditional Budweiser, yet see no factor to return to it either. It"s one stellar attribute is the look, i beg your pardon is excellent; dark and also coppery v a beautiful head. After ~ that, you could guess that made it.May 28, 2019
from Texas1.12/5rDev -68%look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1THIS to be THE WORST BEER ns HAVE ever DRANK!Now the that is the end of the method I"m gonna save this simple. Looks? favor dark amber piss. The type you obtain the morning after ~ a tough night that drinking.Smell? Smells like continual old Budweiser but if it was boiled in piss. Taste? Tastes like exactly how I would imagine piss would taste like if it had actually been boiled and also left to ferment for a month in a whiskey cask. Oh and it has actually a unjustifiably harsh alcohol bite for part reason. Piss. So over there you go. Mine OPINION? that looks, smells and also tastes choose boiled, alcoholic hungover piss. Exterior of the highly misleading awesome packaging I have actually literally nothing an excellent to say about this beer.May 15, 2019
from Massachusetts5/5rDev +42.9%look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5This beer has actually a clean malty easy hopped taste. That is very refreshing alternative to most beers top top the market now which are very hopped and also overly mineralized to do them taste much more bitter.Bud"s Copper Lager is not bitter. The tastes like what a renders a beer good: toasted malt.May 15, 2019
indigenous Canada (ON)2.73/5rDev -22%look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75473 mL Can. ABV 6.2%. Appearance: Dark copper, One finger of light tan head indigenous a difficult pour, slim carbonation.Aroma: basic malted barley, really slight note of bourbon... Or a corn adjunct (?).Mouthfeel: Light-Medium body, unpleasant carbonation.Flavour: Malted barley, note of bourbon as soon as warmed up, uncomfortable finish, Dirty socks.Overall: If i recall correctly, this is my very first Budweiser. It"s no as bad as I thought coming right into it, but it"s pretty one dimensional and also does no leave me wanting any more. I am simply helping the end a friend that bought a six pack as he didn"t desire to finish his critical 5. Ns was not looking front to law this review. It sort of renders me feeling bloated drinking it. It to be hard obtaining through a entirety can. I will certainly not drink this again for countless reasons.Review: 26May 10, 2019
