Beer: Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager
Beer Style: Pre Prohibition Vienna Lager
Country of Origin: United States of America
Brewery: Anheuser Busch InBev
Background: 1933 was a year of mixed events. An unfortunate thing was the beginning of Hitler’s Third Reich. A fortunate event was the end of Prohibition. Budweiser celebrates and commemorates this with this Repeal Reserve Lager. I can happily say that it is a fine and celebratory beer.
Taste & Aroma: The scent of pepper, cinnamon, and toasted malt hit my nose as I raise the rim of the glass to my mouth. The flavor is sharp, slightly sweet, and the finish is of a spicy and toasty malt that is common to Vienna Lagers. I’d love to try this on draught, but I doubt I shall have the opportunity.
Final Analysis: I like this beer. This is an excellent beer that Budweiser should consider making a year-round product like they did with Budweiser Black Crown. Well done, AB InBev.
