Bottle. Poured a deep amber with an average white head that diminished quickly. Sweet roasted aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Smooth malty flavor with a short finish. Drinkable for a macro.

This was my favorite beer as a newly able to drink 21 year old. I walked into Food Lion with a six pack of this, and the girl at checkout did not ID me. WTF???

Pours a nice medium amber color. Nice roast aromas. Flavor has a roast almost burnt grain flavor to it.

For macro crap, this one isnt bad. A nice nut aroma followed by a nut, roasted malt, and slight caramel flavor. All in all, if I had to drink macro from Anheuser-Busch, Id drink this one.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 In the early 90s this stuff was prevelant all over the Tampa area and I drank a lot of it because quite frankly it at least had SOME taste. Its Olsen twin thin by my current standards and the malt component is just a farce of a suggestion of malt and its watery tasting and mostly crap, but Id drink it if it was the only thing around of the Michelob lineup.

Like others, I once that this one was pretty good and now just slightly above the average American swill. Guess Ive become a beer snob. Pours brownish-red with medium off-white head. Malty aroma and flavor some slight bready/yeasty tones as well. Awfully thin for a dark lager.

Bottle. Ima assume that this is the same as "Michelob Classic Dark", with Mandarin letters on the bottle, and 5 minutes of Google could not refute this. Joe thinks it might be Amber Bock, so Im still not sure. Who hell the knows, its probably a mixture of both. Thin, mahogany. Actually has some light fruitiness in the aroma which follows into the bread-malty taste...is that a hint of YEAST in something that AB brewed? Why, I think it is. Theres hope after all...but I still cant call it more than "Very not bad for a macro"
