    Re: new bourbon cask ale...

    I picked some up last year, but passed it by when I saw it again about a week ago. It's fine, but nothing special. And there are lots of genuinely good beers out there.

    Re: new bourbon cask ale...

    I have one bar that carries it, they go thru about 2 1/6 barrels per week.
    But no take outs carry it.

    Re: new bourbon cask ale...

    Picked this up for $6 today. I figured with the sub-title there would be a lot going on in this beer: "Winter ale aged ON bourbon oak casks and whole madagascar vanilla beans"

    Instead I found it was a very flat taste profile. It was not bad, but I won't be buying more. The vanilla is very overpowering. It is certainly a novelty beer.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    yep, it was ok and too sweet....would love to see what an OGD ale would taste like...more hoppy, more like an IPA with something extra!

    Re: new bourbon cask ale...

    Tried this recently and found it odd-tasting - I wanted to like it but the flavors did not cohere and the vanilla flavoring seemed jarring. That Budweiser can brew a faultless micro-style beer is evident from its new American Ale, which is a classic Cascades American Pale Ale such as might have been brewed in California in the 1980's (and still of course is a major category in the craft beer range in the U.S.). Personally, I do not like a heavy Cascades taste though unless particularly well-handled, Sierra Nevada does great work in this area, for example. I am still hopeful A/B will brew micro-style beers that I like, I did enjoy some of the Michelob line extensions for example (the Porter, the dunkleweizen).

    But for my money the best thing Bud makes today is Michelob (the regular one) and Bud Light. Bud Light actually has a good flavor and suits many occasions.

    well, it wasn't THAT bad, but.... ....it should've been much better. maybe all bourbon distilleries can sue ABusch for using that word!

    at least Sam Adams did scotch a favor with that lovely ale they have...smokey and all.

    but may i still reiterate...SORRY I EVER STARTED THIS THREAD lol.....
    HUP!
