12 fl oz bottle at LAX airport. Pours clear and yellow with a fully diminished white head. Cornish and dry aroma. Mild fruity accent in the flavour, but also cornish and slight cardboardish dry. Mild acidic to bitter finish.

Another bored airport rating. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma is skunky malty as if brewing cereal has been used, and so is the flavor. The body is thin.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pale golden with a creamy, white head. Slightly sweet nose. Very thin-bodied with sweetish, malty accents and some chickenfodderish imprints from the corn or rice used. No bitterness. The quintessence of a macro light beer. 190306

(Draught) I am curious how Anheuser-Busch can claim this beer is a "super-premium" light beer, but they also call themselve "The King of Beers"........

For my 1000th beer, I wanted something special. Luckily, I found just the beer in an arena suite in Tampa, while attending the NCAA basketball tourney -- Michelob Light, one of the most well-known and well-liked beers in the entire United States. Somehow no one had claimed the last one, and I decided that it was too special an opportunity to pass up. In rating this beer, I decided my biggest concern would be letting the knowledge that this was such a popular beer affect my ratings -- bias can creep in in so many ways, and the last thing I wanted to do was overrate this beer based on reputation. The beer is clear yellow with a healthy white froth. The aroma is moderately sweet and entirely inoffensive. Then I taste the beer, and understand why it's such a popular beer. There's a bit of fizz on the tongue, and a sense of grain, but otherwise this beer could pass for water. And I love water -- in fact, it's the beverage I drink more than any other. As many other consumers can attest, A-B has found a real winning combination with this brew -- I will certainly remember the experience of tasting this, my 1000th rated beer.

It was 99 cents at a hot dog stand, how could we not? Straw colour. Rather watery. Hints of grain. Some tartness, but mostly watery-grainy. Disappeared quickly and painlessly.

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

12 oz. bottle. Clean light aroma of citrusy? hop? So light itís hard to tell what it is. Pale brassy gold color with a white head that evaporated. Very thin in body, very moderate in carbonation, very light in pale malt sweetness. The bitter is simply undetectable, if there is any. A-B can really stretch an expensive ingredient, so it could be a hop flower per batch. Nice watery blah finish. If you canít drink the water, this could work as a substitute.
