2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one pours a pretty light and pale golden color. Aroma is of malts, dust, banana, and a little wheat. Flavor is of malts, bubblegum, spices, and some wheat. Leaves more of a malty wheat finish. Nothing special. Ohh yeah it’s an AB product so that makes sense.

grainy aroma, taste is of cheap sweet malt. Drank about half of it then gave it away.

A sad attempt to try to appeal to some of the craft drinkers that no longer drink AB products...

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not too bad for AB/I- they are picking their quality up in the face of true craft beer. Aroma was not much to speak of. Light golden malt with not much else going on. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was so so. Not great but not macro-level. Sweet light malt with a sugary aftertaste. No hops to speak of but I wasn’t expecting them in a macro brewed beer. This is sweet, malty, carbonated sugar water but not too bad for what it is. Nice carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Man, everytime you turn around there is another michelob beer to be tasted. Smell is sweetly hoppy. Looks like a pale lager of sorts. Taste is at first a little bitter hoppy then that fades quite rapidly. Decent amount of fizz on the palate, each sips is fizzy but fades to a flat. Seems to be a tad watery at times. Friendly light and easy going for the most part. Background slight medicinal bitterness on the finish. IMHO there are many other better blondes for the price such as
Indigo Imp Blonde Bombshell, Roy Pitz Best Blonde Ale, Hoppy Liquid Sunshine Blonde Ale
but its much better than koch’s golden anniversary ale.
