3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from my brother and Ralph’s Supermarket, Palm Springs! Nose of ripe banana esters, cloves, a light chcolate note, and some whaety graininess; cloudy copper-amber with a big, glass-lacing beige head; flavor is bananas, light chocolate, light hop bitterness, and a light brown sugary sweetness.Finish is light chcoclate sweetness and very light bitterness. Is this really a Michelob? Tastes like a decent craft brew; What, did they hire an actual craft brewer?
