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.

Nice try guys...well not really. I guess they should get kudos for the effort...but execution fails. Weak aroma and weak flavor...weak. better than bud, hell yes. At least that, huh?

shrubber85 (10662) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Bottle. Orange-strawberry malt aroma. Clear amber color with small head. Slightly sweet caramel malt flavor - mild hops finish. Moderate acidity and carbonation. Not bad - like other A-B specialty beers, toned down for their average customer.
