Obtains its color from roasted malt, which also adds to its unique flavor.

dark, thin-bodied, no nose; faint hop-free roasted malt taste with a clean watery finish.

For macro crap, this one isnít 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, Iíd drink this one.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 In the early 90ís 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. Itís Olsen twin thin by my current standards and the malt component is just a farce of a suggestion of malt and itís watery tasting and mostly crap, but Iíd 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 Iíve 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 Iím still not sure. Who hell the knows, itís 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. Thereís hope after all...but I still canít call it more than "Very not bad for a macro"

This used to be one of my favorite beers ... but, then again, I didnít get out much. Like many before me have said, it was one of the only dark lagers available at the time and definitely a cut above most macros. Similar in taste to Michelob with the pleasing addition of roasted malt, giving it a toasty flavor. Smooth and drinkable, but not as good as your average craft beer ... or your below average craft beer for that matter.

I used to buy this stuff alot back in the day. Tasted like an artificial dark beer. Seemed like the "dark" was just additives but for some reason I still enjoyed it.

Not the greatest but it has rank above swill in fact for a macro this one is ok. by my standards.

This beer is ok, in a Beckís-Lowenbrau-St. Pauli dark sort of way. Or maybe in a Henry Weinhardís dark sort of way. You get the picture.
