2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet aroma of grain and likely honey. Light amber color with a decent white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is light honey over bready flavor. The finish is a light touch of grassy or herbal hop, but not enough to balance the light sweetness that persists. There’s a little cooked caramel too. All in all it’s a pretty decent drink, and it’s tarted up enough to be much better than the macros.

12oz bottle-pours a dissipating off white head and gold/amber color. Aroma is grainy/husky-slight sweetness. Tastei s grainy/husky-sweet/sugary, hops bite that clashes. Mouth feel and taste don’t quite work for me. Thanks jwc215 for picking this one out.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample at AleFest Dayton: Pale gold color with a thin white head with poor retention. Spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of honey and a hint of malt. Light-bodied with a flavor differentiated from the normal Michelob only by the added honey. It actually seems more like an afterthought than a concerted effort at creating something new. The finish is bland and mildly sweet. Not worth coming back to.

Kudos to the AB brewers for trying, but a fail if they were trying to create a good beer. This one is just above really bad but it smashes the regular macro brewed lagers...so it gets a bit of a better score. This one has some decent honey and malt flavors with a bit of decent aroma.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Crystal clear amber beer.
Very light nose, even after warming a bit. Amost devoid of aroma.
The flavor is of honey. Not at all balanced. Too sweet and thin. Tastes like canned corn.
Watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, watery, sweet finish. Keep trying, A.B.
