Like the perfect cocktail, sometime a good shake bring out the flavor. Budweiser Nitro Gold is the gold lager than is shaking up the beer industry.

For some people, shaking a Budweiser beer might be unthinkable. For the Budweiser Nitro Gold just the right amount of shaking can make for the perfect beer drinking experience. Are you ready to see why a good shake can really stir up the beer industry?

Budweiser Nitro Gold is a new Nitro specialty brew. Infused with nitrogen gas, this beer brings a premium drinking experience to wide audience. Responding to the trend of nitro beverages, this offering from Budweiser proves that big brands can and are willing to incorporate elevated food trends.

According to Budweiser, the Nitro Gold is a golden lager. The flavor is said to be bold, which comes from the toasted caramel malt. While the golden color might denote some of the flavor notes, the nitro aspect adds to the enjoyment.

With a nitro style beer, the bubbles are small and denser. The resulting beer is exceptionally smooth and rich. This is a beer to savor, not slam.

“We’re very excited about the introduction of Budweiser Nitro Reserve because it meets the growing demand for premium products and the rise in popularity of nitro infused beverages, said Ricardo Marques, VP Marketing Core & Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch.

In a way, this beer is as much about the ritual as it is about the flavor. To have the optimum flavor experience, the beer needs to be shook (turned upside down) three times, no more, no less. Although it seems OCD, that method ensures the right of bubble infusion.

Like any carbonated beverage, over shaking can result in too much pressure within the can. Unlike a cocktail, this bubble infusion is meant to be more gentle.

While the Budweiser Nitro Gold can be drunk from the can, pouring it into a glass creates a cascading effect. In a tall, slender glass, pour the beer into the center of the glass. That method will create the smoothest finish.

Similar to other nitro style beers, it is best to wait slightly before taking a sip. While it can be hard, that extra moment of anticipation will only increase the enjoyment.

In the past year, Budweiser has added several new beers that present a more elevated beer option. The Budweiser Reserved Black Label was well received. Since Budweiser has so many loyal fans, the newer options allow beer drinkers to experiment with a brand that they trust.

The Budweiser Nitro Gold is available in stores now, in six pack and 12 pack options. The beer has a 5% ABV.
