UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 I dont get the whole "draft" thing. Is there some guy at AB pouring this into bottles from a keg. Are all the other beers not supposed to be drunk from a tap, only bottles/cans. Subtracted points for the draft title, same beer different label.

Didnít care for this one. I like Mic light better than this. Too watery.

I thought it was MGD at first glance. However, it is waterier and more stunky than MGD. Pass this one by.

I had always semi-enjoyed Mich Golden Draft Light, but had yet to try the heavy until now. I was pleasantly surprised at how flavorful it is compared to the average American Standard. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter, it finishes very nicely and provides a good aftertaste. Aroma has hints of cereal (Fruit Loops?) The "other" MGD takes a hit on appearance, however. An initially large, frothy, white head fully diminishes into nothingness. The flat, yellow body is almost lifeless. But, close your eyes, and Mich Golden Draft emerges as one of the better American Standards.

This is what I like to call a good "work" beer. Something to wet the whistle on a Saturday afternoon while painting the house, changing the oil, or cutting the grass. Buy it for quantity, not quality. Iíve had worse.

Mich diesel we call it. Goes down hard and is hard on the head in the morning. But other than that....

A nice copy of Miller GD. However, MGD isnít all that good.
