Here's a review of the third beer from the Budweiser Project 12 variety pack, Batch No. 63118.
If you've been following along, I already reviewed Batch No. 91406 and 23185, both of which were considerably better than I was expecting. Not great mind you, but still better than expected.
Today's review is Batch No. 63118, a beer created by Budweiser's St. Louis brewery. This is a standard golden lager that comes in at a respectable 6.0% ABV. It is inspired by the ingredients commonly used at that brewery during the 19th Century, including Hallertau and Tettnang hops. Now, unless you're a homebrewer or a serious beer nerd, that probably won't mean much to you. But, I digress...
Budweiser's Project Twelve Batch. No. 63118 pours a moderate gold color with a pale white, thin head. Aromas are noticeably weak with scents of vague grains, light malts, and a bit of white bread. Tasting lends to a crisp, clean mouthfeel with pretty stereotypical (if not muted) German-esque Pilsner flavors, watery corn and grain notes, semi-sweet light malts, a bit of biscuit, and a crisp mineral finish.
Bottom line, a pretty average Pilsner-type beer. Yes, it's better than standard Budweiser, but it's clearly my least favorite of the three in the Project 12 variety pack. I'm betting regular Budweiser and Bud Light drinkers would probably enjoy it, though...
Drink This: if you want a slight step up from regular Budweiser and Bud Light.
Don't Drink This: if you have a choice between any of the three in the Project 12 pack. Also, don't drink this if you're looking for *gasp* a real craft beer.
