Who has tried it? How much hop character is there?

I want to know if it has any body or not. I have noticed that when the Big Boys try to do "Micro" they can't/won't give the brew any body.

I bought a 6 pack at State Line in Elkton, MD. I caught a small wiff of cascade when I opened the bottle but it didn't make it to the glass. Malt is the dominant flavor, body rather thin. I will not be buying it again.

I had a bottle a month ago. I concur with bill's findings. Malt balanced. Despite the mention of dry hopping, it isn't very hop-aromatic.
My comment at the time was, "uninspiring". I think a basic SNPA is much better.

I had a sample in a restaurant this past weekend (We were leaving and I noticed it on tap as I was coming out of the bathroom, the bartender gave me a sample when I asked about it). I found it to be an decent American Amber Ale. Not one I will look for, but if I would choose it over Amber Bock or Shiner if available.

I haven't yet had Budweiser American Ale; I doubt it will make it to Canada and it doesn't yet seem to have wide distribution in the part of the US that is near me. However, I suspect it will be a long time before one of the major brewers produces a truly hoppy beer. They are so used to beers with 10 IBUs that even 30-40 IBUs is off their charts.
