Rather than adding to an already lengthy thread, here's another for the rest of the "craft" brews from Bud/Mich/Busch. Tried the Pale Ale, Irish Red, and Porter in a sampler 12 pack. From the bottom up..
Pale Ale - Not as hoppy as the label infers, however somewhat better than
Bud American Ale. A reasonable compromise for those afraid to
Marzen/Octoberfest - Not bad, similar to Sam Adams Octoberfest but maybe
a touch thinner.
Porter - Surprisingly porter. Rich color, texture, and taste. Checked the
label again.... Yes it is from ANB.
Irish Red - The best of the bunch. Very good malt character, adequate hops
color and texture. This and the porter have a good chance of
following me home again.
Anybody else tried these?
