2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted directly from bottle. Predictable golden color, white head, light body, no discernable hops, very fizzy, metallic aftertaste. Mainly available in Illinois and other northern states, a deliberate Anheuser Busch tactic to infiltrate Miller territory. Get it? Miller Genuine Draft = MGD = Michelob Golden Draft? As with any olí macro-mock-pilsner, it tastes fine ice cold outside on a really hot summer day. The coolest thing about this beer is the fluted glass bottle.

Date: July 31, 2011 Mode: Can Source: Church Fundraiser, Prescott, WI Bought this as a donation and to get the rating. A slight step up from the light beer category but just a little more flavored water.

Dear God this was bad.
Thin golden pour with a minimal arom of anything resembling beer.
The taste was thin and slightly grassy.

Draft at Tomís Bar and Grill in the Central West End. Pours pretty much like every other A-B beer- pale yellow and clear with visible carbonation and a fizzy white head. Not much on the aroma- some pale malts and grassy, straw notes with a little sugary sweetness. The flavor has pale malts, grass, banana, sugar, and corny cereal grains. No skunky notes. Light-bodied with medium-high carbonation. Not much here but it worked just fine with limited options afer a long bike ride.

MGD was the first pitcher of beer I bought. At that time, this is what I thought beer was all about. I was way off. It does the trick at ballgames and concerts, but thatís where I draw the line. Just an OK cheap beer

This beer is not sold in Louisiana, so I had never tried it until on a road trip in Minnnesota in 2010. It has a thick, white head, and a very clear, golden appearance. Aroma is sharp, with a grain or grass aspect. The taste is good, and I was happy with the hop character, which was not too pronounced, of course. Mouth-feel was light and watery. It finished crisp and satisfying. I really enjoyed Michelob Golden Draft and wish it was more widely available. NOTE: Iíd avoid drinking this from the clear glass bottle as that could allow for spoilage. The can or draft should be a better option.

Certainly not great. I would drink this under dire circumstances like if I were outside all day with no shelter from the sun and wanted to drink something other than water and not dehydrate.
