For the love of Beer:Project 12 Review Sponsored Post
You may be wondering what the heck I am talking about. Well, I like to consider myself a Beer connoisseur. So, when I was selected to sample Budweiser's new line of Project 12 Special Edition Beers how could I say no? Both my husband and I are beer drinkers. But neither of us drink Budweiser products. I've never been a fan of Budweiser although we both love specialty beers and love to experiment so this was right up our ally. I couldn't wait to start the taste testing! I was given 3 different types of Beer to Sample.
The first beer I sampled was the Pacific Style Pale Ale. I love pale ales so I was really excited to try this one. My excitement slowly fizzled to disappointment after tasting this pale ale. This beer pours like a light beer and has a crisp lager taste. To me this tastes like I am drinking a regular light beer. I was hoping for the trademark floral and citrus tastes that you commonly find in a pale ale. I was not impressed.
The second of the three beers I sampled was the Vanilla Bourbon Cask Ale. While pouring this beer you could smell the Vanilla immediately. It is an amber colored ale and tastes almost like a cream soda with a slightly bitter aftertaste. However, if this had been a darker more full bodied beer like a porter or stout I probably would have loved it.
Last on the list was the Beechwood Bock. The Beechwood Bock is an American Amber Beer that pours dark with a small off white head that fades quickly. Right away I tasted some metallic notes which I am not a fan of and finished off with the taste of caramel. Overall I thought this beer was okay. Although this was my husbands favorite of the three. He thought it was very drinkable for a Bock.With a touch of caramel and chocolate aftertastes.
After taste tasting all three beers I have to admit that I was not impressed. Maybe I am too much of a Beer "Snob" but these beers just didn't pass the test. They don't stand up to the micro brews that I am used to drinking. I do applaud Budweiser for trying.
