    Default Budweiser Project Twelve

    Budweiser has long been my fave go-to beer, though I am an avid fan of many imports and micro brews. But good ol' Bud I can go for most anytime.

    There hasn't been anything new about Bud until this year. Budweiser Project Twelve is NEW Budweiser! Their brewmasters at 12 US breweries were challenged to come up with a something new and unique using yeast from their original culture. All were expected to adhere to the crisp clean taste typical of Bud lager but add what ever regional influence they wanted.

    Then the brewmasters sampled the 12 and paired them down to 6 they liked best. From there they let the public take over. Sampling all across the country this past summer produced the consumers' choice of the top 3. Each has a batch number that is the zip code of the brewery location.

    Those 3 are now available in a limited edition 12-pack of bottles containing 4 of each of the top choice brews. They are asking beer drinkers to buy the 12-pack and vote on their favorite via QR code or Budweiser.com/Project12.

    So I decided to give it a whirl.





    This card has notes on each batch and is included.



    This is 91406 from Los Angeles.

    I poured one cold into a chilled glass. It has a pretty deep amber look to it. At first I was disappointed that it wasn't more flavorful. But as it warmed a bit, I got a slight caramel and malt flavor coming through. More hop flavor than regular Bud and more body. Nice! The 6% alcohol content had me buzzin' right away.



    Next up was 23185 from Williamsburg, VA. Again, maybe a little too cold. Better as it warmed from the frozen glass. Just a touch of sweetness, maybe vanilla. Slight woodiness. Fresh, clean taste. No aftertaste. I like this one too!! It's 5.5 % alcohol added to my buzz. Another amber, but lighter than 91406.



    The third offering was from St. Louis, 63118. This one was a deep golden pilsner. As with the others, I had it a little too cold for the flavor to come out. But it was nice! Also, clean, crisp and refreshing as the others in keeping with the tradition of original Bud. I did NOT mind the 6% alcohol!

    All were similar to Bud...with a twist. All were delish. What did I choose as best? I dunno yet. I was leaning toward the deep amber 91406, but each seemed really good at the time. Guess I'll have to have another round!

    Stay tuned for what's up next. My review of Texas Bourbon.

    I was having trouble identifying the subtle nuanced flavors...had to try over and over.

    I aint never been a Butwiper fan I like a heady hoppy brew that I have to chew out of the glass. Now the Bourbon is a whole different animal
    Be kind to me, it's not my fault I'm a "PORK-A-HOLIC"!!

    I saw that 3 type Bud at Sams Club yesterday. I don't drink Bud either, lets just say it doesn't agree with me the next morning.

    I hear that from a lot of non-Bud fans. To me it's no worse than anything else. And NONE of it agrees with me if I do too much of it.!
