I like this better than the regular Michelob. It has a smooth, sweet flavor. Very enjoyable!

Smooth and foamy , light in body and flavor. Sweet with very little bitterness. Compromises too much with use of adjuncts, and disappoints. Certainly no example of a great German style. Not a Bock at all. The Bud people really show us their lack of respect for classic beer styles in this one.

Slightly sweet with wet carmel flavors, a bit of cabbage. Mr Beer below talks about the hangover. I think mine was due only in part to this beer. The porfidio tequila, tropical rum drinks and Moet Et Chandon probably had some factor in this mega blast katzenjammer.

A decent beer that is good to get every once in a while, but the hangover effect is rough!

I find this to be somewhat watery. That aside, I do find this to be a very enjoyable beer. I liked the Black and Tan better, but this was decent.

It’ll do in a pinch, but too many and you get the signature AB headache.

A pretty quality american beer! Couldn’t drink on a regular basis, but once in a while is good for a change.

Ya know, I admire AB for pretending to care enough to make a real beer, but it still doesn’t work. It’s pretty and looks promising, but it just doesn’t have anything resembling a bock body. Too thin, lacking the bock malts. Better than their other stuff, but when Optimator is so readily available, why the heck bother with this crap?
