I find this beer hillarious:

Says it's "Aged on Boubon Casks" but it has a born-on date of Nov 17th.

This beer tastes like NOTHING. No flavor whatsoever.

Yeah, it's pretty bad. Incidentally, their pumpkin ale was real bad too (also watery and flavorless). I think it's a conspiracy by AB to get the beer drinkers who are considering expanding their palates to try some radical beers and determine that it's all crap. Kind of trick them out of their shell only to make them voluntarily slam themselves back in...

Well Cheese, it looks like you've saved me the trouble. I was toying with the idea of trying it. I was kind of hoping that AB was going to branch out into the Craft Brew Domain with this beer, but it sounds like that is not the case.

Let me tell you though- I gleefully fork over $10 a BOTTLE to drink Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout. So, if you ever happen to see it on the shelves near you (sold in a 4 pack for about $16), pick it up and if you like stouts you will be in love with that beer!!!

I haven't had that stuff this year, but last year it tasted like marshmallows.

A couple years ago, Michelob had a beer called "Winter's Cask Bourbon Ale", and the next year AB gave us "Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale". I dunno all the specifics as per whether or not Michelob = AB, but I can definitely tell you it is exactly the same beer.

It was actually my first beer other than the traditional BMC junk, and they had it for $1 draughts at the local winery. We used to go there and get annihilated on the stuff after work. I just think it's odd how they changed the name while it is still exactly the same beer.

While it is no longer my favorite, I do like it. And at $1 a glass, well, you get the point.

Yeah that stuff tasted like a Budweiser with vanilla flavoring added.

I wasn't impressed either. It's got way too much artificial flavor....tastes like some kind of berry-vanilla but it ends up being way too sweet without enough roasty flavor to balance it out. At $1 a pint, though....what the hell....

That's what I'm saying. After 7-8, they all taste good anyway.

We drive to the winery, then ride our bicycles home. It's pretty damn fun.
