Every here and there you get a new beer that is something a bit special, well it looks as if Budweiser has done it with this magnificent ale. If the press kit is right we are in for a treat. The Budweiser American Ale has a robust taste and full bodied with a malty and hoppy taste but not too strong or bitter. The beer is brewed using caramel malted barley which not only gives the beer a sweet malty character but a lovely almost reddish amber glow. The beer has 5.5% alcohol volume and in some parts a 3.2% version is available. The beer uses Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest and they are dry hopped not added to the kettle like most beers. The beer hits the US market in September with draught being available on the 15th and in packaged forms from the 29th. We would love to hear from anyone who tries it to see if it lives up to the promises.
