Recent Six Packs

Before I clean out my collection of six pack carriers, I decided to take a few shots for those of you who might be keeping track. Enjoy!

Budweiser American Ale

Style and Glass: Amber Ale; shaker
ABV, Volume & Calories: 5.3% in 12 fl oz. estimated at 150 C
Purchased at: Super Saver Pennington, NJ for $1.08

Aroma: quiet, faint, caramel. 5 out of 10.

Visuals: well designed label, beautiful, copper, brilliant, little head, some lace. 4 out of 5.

Taste: weak, some malt, little hops, low strength, low craft. 3 out of 10.

Palate: lower quality, smooth texture, quick finish. 2 out of 5.

Overall: About what you’d expect, but not nearly as bad as American Lager. Will likely repeat, as it is quite affordable and not bad at all, not a favorite, high value, low craft. 13 out of 20.

Anheuser Busch Natural Light

ABV: 1.2%
Type: Pilsner

first impression: smells stale, faint and unwholesome.

Color: lemony, clear, and without depth
Aroma: faint and fleeting
Hoppiness: just a hint
Maltiness: most of the flavor is malt, but that’s not saying much.
Weight: surprisingly weighty.
Mouthfeel: thin, like a flat soda.
Belgian Lace: absent without a trace
Bite: just the slightest

second impression: what an absolute loser.
