I agree with both sentiments. I do not intend to ever buy another InBev product, but I will not deny their brewmasters are some of the most talented out there.

I think the Cask lager was the best of the three, but I won't be going out of my way to get any more of any of it. Not that it's bad, but "meh" pretty much sums it up compared to what's out there. Clarity, color, carbonation, all that's great but it's just "meh" with regard to flavor.

If they are good, i'll drink them. I like a Bud every now and again. Especially at a ballgame.

My wife picked up some of this a few weeks ago. The batch aged on bourbon staves and vanilla beans (23185) wasn't too bad. I could drink a few of those on a hot summer day for sure. I didn't care much for the other two. In fact, I couldn't really taste much difference between them.

I think it would be great if AB could produce some "craft" type beers that aren't targeted towards the average beer drinker. I think these were geared towards the average Budweiser drinker who thinks craft beers are too "hoppy" or too <fill in blank>.

Growing up and living in STL I have always like AB, even when I started to appreciate craft beers. My wife and I take our kids to Grant's Farm here in town and at the end of the day we like to stop in the beer garden and get our free beer. I know a Shock Top isn't a real witbier, but it really hits the spot on a hot day. Greatest part of them buying Goose Island is I can get that on tap at Busch Stadium now when I catch a game!

I think AB respects craft breweries... So much that they are beginning to apply the "craft images" and concepts to their business. If AB didn't respect the craft industry they would have never attempted to implement craft beer into their line up. I look at it from the angle that AB respects, and in a weird way, is scarred of them so much that they are trying to dive into the craft business themselves. Same with miller-coors. And why does AB get so much attention on here where is the miller-coors bashing- some of their stuff is just as bad if not worse- take batch 19 for example or even leinenkugel...

I think that AB and Miller- Coors mess up when they jump into the craft industry and make "clean beers. WE WANT DIRTY FULL FLAVORED BEER! I think if that means prices get raised so be it people pay... At least you'll really be competing in the craft market then.

I saw these at Sam's Club last weekend and was intrigued but I NEED bottles so are they twist or pry caps? I am not a huge fan of AB but they make one of my favorite big 3 "craft" summer brews in Shock Top so they get a chance when they market something new.

Twist off, as much as I tried to fool myself using the opener.

That is what I figured and why I passed on them. Maybe I will give them a shot sometime in the new year.
