Destructoid is a mature gaming community. So, I’m assuming that most of you are over the legal drinking age in your respective countries. Therefore I present you with a beer review.
I’m going to have to be honest. I think that almost everything Anheuser-Busch puts out is shit. They’re the proud distributors of all that horrible beer you drank in college. Besides, they’re not even an American owned company.
That’s why the ironically named “American Ale” impressed me so much. It’s not the most fantastic beer in the world, but it’s reasonably priced and doesn’t completely suck.
I’d say that American Ale’s quality is better than most mass produced beer, but not quite as good as a midlevel micro-brew. It has a really full flavor—you can actually taste the hops—and goes down smooth. American Ale finishes on a nice yeasty note.
I picked up a six pack for around $6.50.
American Ale is well worth the money, but it certainly won’t blow your mind. It’d be a good beer to take to game night with the ‘bros.
It’s also a good introduction into the world of slightly higher end bargain beers—if you liked it, try Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale or Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA next.
If I had to give it a numerical score I’d give a 7.0.
