COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michelob Pale Ale is a classic English-style pale ale brewed with classic noble aroma hop varieties grown in the Northwestern United States and Europe, as well as two-row and caramel barley malts. With a dark-gold color, this beer has a spicy, hoppy character. A pale ale pairs well with full-flavored meats, like steak. This beer is best enjoyed in a tall, fluted pilsner glass.

Pours a hazy amber. Malts and more hops than I was expecting on the nose. Very pleasant taste to it really. Floral and citrus hops shining through. If you’re expecting a very hoppy experience you won’t get that but it does have a nice hop presence to it. I was impressed really. Not a bad brew at all.

has an okay aroma of mild citrus hops, something was off in the taste. had a bitter alcohol taste to it that lingered in the aftertaste and made this beer not so enjoyable.

Poobah (268) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2010
More aroma than I expected with a little maltiness and bitterness. Amber color with nice initial head that dissipates to a rim. Mild flavor with a hint of hoppiness and sweetness in the finish and a barely detectable metallic quality. Fairly thin, smooth mouthfeel. Decent. Nice labeling

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 17, 2009
12 ounce bottle from a mixed 12 pack. Aroma is kinda of a musty, stale, swampy hop aroma. Lightly grassy and metallic. Transparent copper body with a decent, frothy off yellow head. Starts with a little grassy and herbal hop flavoring. Becomes a little cardboardy in the middle, before finishing with just a bit of herbal spicy hoppiness. A little thin, and somewhat unoffensive, if not pedestrian.

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Pours golden amber with a modest white head and a light malt aroma. The caramel malt actually has some flavor and there is a modicum of hop bitterness. It’s a step up for Michelob, but doesn’ t hold up to the good microbrews.

12 oz. bottle- Pours amber golden with little head, almost no aroma and the flavor is not that great. A very boring- mediocre Pale ale.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours clear dark golden with a small white froth. Aroma is very caramel and toffee with some graininess. Just a bit of piney hops but almost all sweet sugary malts. Flavor starts with a lot more caramel, super sweet. Picks up more light biterness, just a bit thoug without much of a defining character. Finishes a bit spicy bitter and lightly grainy. Medium bodyt and a sharp carbonation. Bland pale ale

nickd717 (3480) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Bottle at my company holiday party. A little underrated on here possibly due to anti-macro bias. This doesn’t blow that hard! Pours a clear golden-amber color with a one-finger white head. Aroma is bready malts, caramel, and a little citrus fruit. Flavor is not bad at all. Bready pale and caramel malt, tropical fruit notes, and mild citrusy and floral hops. Really not hoppy at all for the style, but pleasant nonetheless. I would put this more into the amber ale category. Medium-light body with a pretty standard, unexciting mouthfeel. Pretty drinkable.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Pours an orange copper color with a white head. Aroma is bready malts, hops, and metallic. Flavor is bready malts, metallic water and a touch of hops.

Arayaga2 (1778) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and has a bit of diacetyl, but no real hop presence. Taste is the same with a pervasive sourness that blends in with some mild hop character. Carbonation is fairly brisk $2/12oz
