Was pretty disappointed in this. Canít really tell you what I tasted because there wasnít much taste. It had a faint hop aroma.. possibly citrus but the taste was pretty watery.

Extremely weak for a "pale ale", this is a disappointment in a bottle. Nearly no hops present at all. Watery start that builds to a mediocre finish.

It looks good, smells good. And, at first, I thought it was good. But teh finish was somehow off - bitter but not in a good and pleasant way. I tried not to be subceptible to the animus folks feel towards the brewing giants. Interestingly, you would think all that money would allow them to make a superior beer - if they wanted to.

Pours nice amber with white head, aroma is touch of hops, touch of caramel malt. Taste is some earthy hops, leading into a bit of caramel, finishing a touch bitter. The tastes are all there for a english-style pale ale, but everything is really subdued.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug. Color was a clear amber orange. A nice layer of head, but it fades down quickly, leaving little lacing.
Well the smell definitely is of floral hops. Not to many malts going on. A low level of pale malts. Taste is of grassy hops, a lot more than I expected.
Carbonation level is pretty good, leaving the mouthfeel a little bitter and dry, but overall not to bad.
Overall this is a decent beer for the price. Nothing too amazing for a pale ale, but at a buck a bottle what would you expect.

This is one of the weaker cases for a pale ale Iíve seen. Now I understand this is supposed to be an "English" version so the hops are not nearly as pronounced as a typical American pale ale version but the aroma was of decaying grain, nothing of fresh hops at all. The flavor was very awful as well, a touch of burnt caramel and then a slight bittering at the end the hops make a half-assed attempt the throw some pine flavor your way but it just isnít enough. Meh, from Michelob Iíd rather just have the regular lager from them before this.

Someone gave me a case of Michelob so I thought I should at least rate it. Mahogany with white head...doesnít persist. Aroma is hoppy but with slight buttery and cheesy odors. Taste is moderately hoppy but not well balanced. Hops taste sour. Somewhat unpleasant. Bitterness lingers unpleasantly. Still better than a bud.

A decent offering from Anheuser-Busch... Surprisingly hoppy. Medium copper color. Given to me by my father-in-law at the family reunion. Enjoyable :-)
