Drinking with the Dark Side- Budweiser

Posted by ebrius on October 7, 2008

I’m sure you’ve all seen the ads for Budweiser’s new ‘American Ale’. “Top fermented with Crystal Malt and Cascade Hops”, or something like that. But anyway, I was out the other night and just happen to see it on tap. Now, like most beer connoisseurs out there I tend to avoid American Macrobreweries, but I figured, this might have some potential, so, I tried it.

Now, I have to say, for a beer brewed by Budweiser, it actually tastes pretty good. The crystal malt is there (albeit very subtle), and guess what, there are even hops! Now, I wouldn’t buy this at the store, I would much rather stick with: Stone, Dogfish Head, Southern Tier, Boulder, Sam Adams, etc. But still, it was much better then I expected, and if a bar was having a special in it, I’d definitely get it again.
