6 pack from the local walmart for a cheap attempt to drown out a tough day on the railroad. I had only two but both were more enjoyable than the average light beer. Pale yellow, well balanced bitterness. Enough grassy hops to be noticeable. Typical water body. Perhaps the best of the light beers???

Transfer from BA review on 4-2-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a light golden-yellow color with a two finger pure white head. The head fades over about a two minute time frame to leave a rather surprisingly good level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell –The aroma is very light. The light detectable smells are of a bread, corn, paper, caramel and light citrus hop smell. Taste – The taste begins with a tiny bit of a bready flavor consisting mainly of a corny sweet flavor. As the flavors advanced the sweetness grew even stronger more toward the middle with some other light fruit flavors as well as some light caramel flavor coming to the tongue. The taste is rather sweet from here to the end, leaving a rather sweet flavor of corn, caramel, and some fruit with very little of any other flavors to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to above average side for a light brew (but still on the thinner side overall) with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The slightly thicker body for a light brew accentuates some of the sweeter corn and papery flavors a bit to heavily, where a lighter body and a bit more carbonation would have better hidden these and created a more refreshing style brew. Overall – Higher in sweetness but lower in refreshment for a beer of the “light” category. A little too much corn and papery taste combined with the off feel make this brew one to likely avoid.

Another beer of my youth. For some reason we felt that Michelob was a classier beer than most of the other lagers around, I’m not sure why. We must’ve been victims of advertising.

Reviewed from notes. Sometimes an after hockey beer. Most of the time when it was consumed in a glass, it was a pint glass. Here goes. The appearance was a decent looking super light yellow color with a super clear transparency about it. Carbonation was seen rising at a rapid pace. The white one finger foamy head rapidly dissipated into oblivion. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell was, uh.....what was that....as many times as I’ve had this, honestly, there really wasn’t much, maybe some cooked corn if anything, but even that was barely there. The taste was semi-sweet but that was about it. The palate, well, it sat exceptionally light and showed a superb sessionability about it. Overall, uh....its Michelob Light. Have you ever had it? Hmmm....okay, uh...cheers and I’ll leave it at that thinking I could fit that "confused look" emoticon in this to wonder why I felt the need to even say something about this.

Bottle into pint glass, because I’m classy. Light pale golden color with some white lacing. Aroma of faint pale malt sweetness, slight corn, grainy and faintest grass note. Taste adds maybe some toasted grain and a metallic note. Light body, heavy carbination, watery, crisp with clean finish. Not the best, not the worst. Another watery lager from AB does what it does.

355ml bottle. Drinkable. I actually could taste some hops over the corny light beer malt. Body was pretty crisp when it was really cold. Overall, better than Coors Light.

Thanks to whoever brought this to my house and forgot it. You’re a real pal. Canned on August 27, 2013.
Appearance: This is a great looking beer in all honesty. The body is crystal clear with a pale golden hue and the head is tall with good retention. The head settles into a foamy uneven white coating.
Aroma: The aroma pushes to the nose easily, but there’s nothing really to grasp. Some toast is present and a slight grassiness, but nothing pleasant or appealing. It’s just beer.
Taste: Oh boy that’s pretty bad. Water and light toasted slightly sweet malts greet the tongue, mostly water though. Perhaps a slight metallic tinge to this. This is one of the most watery beers I’ve ever had.
Palate: Carbonated water.
Overall: When people I see at work claim this is the only beer they drink, I now know for sure that they don’t have the faintest idea of what beer is. This is hardly short of sparkling water. I guess to each their own, but I don’t look forward to finding a stray Michelob Ultra in my fridge, how watery will that taste?

Well, I expected a beer as good as Michelob Lager, sadly is not that good, all the features are lower and plain, just a bit watery and a low trace of malt.
