1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
You cannot help but see a cross section of the other ratings of this beer. Barely a single on that is about 1.5 and an overall rating of n/a. Wow. So is this the blandest beer in the world? Lets see.
It looks nice enough I suppose, if you like yellowish beers with bugger-all head and coarse, nay flabby carbonation. A sniff reveals lightly soda-ish cornwater. A taste reveals even less. There is a vague suggestion of some flavour, but just immediately forgettable. No finish to speak of. Congratulations, youíve brewed a beer so smooth it only carries the Michelob name, nothing else. It failed to carry any flavour, any positive impression and any desire to try it again.
I suppose I should say something positive: it didnít have any faults. But then, it didnít have any laudable qualities either.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours super carbonated, huge head. Head doesnít last long though. It is super clear. You can read through it, I tried it. There is some thin lacing that lingers to the glass.
Aroma is very light. Bread, barley, but not much of that. Doesnít really have any.
Taste, well what can I say. Itís very light. Itís not terrible. Itís well balanced. Itís just as bitter as it is sweet. Yeah, thereís hops in there, but theyíre not easy to find.
Mouthfeel is clean. It is so light that it finishes so clean, itís like you never even drank it. This is perhaps the most drinkable or sessionable beer ever.
Everyone wants to hate on this beer. I really want to, and Iím trying hard to not like it. I seriously bought it just to hate on it, but I canít. Itís not that bad.

Light yellow fizz. Very watery. No hops no malts, just soda water is my two cents. Very little to say to have enough characters other than fizzy yellow swill.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Well....itís better than BUD, IMO. Actually donít mind it for a daytime light beer. Donít expect much more than "Barley-water". The taste is aight, for whatever little there is. Pretty mild, thin, with minimal hops and malts. It is what it is. For domestic shwaggy light beer though, Iíd rate it towards the top of that category, although Iíd still much rather have a good pilsner or something.

Is this bud light with fewer calories? Just real light light grain tea with super big carbonation with no head. Bad!

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours very pale, crystal clear yellow...with a foamy white head....
Lemony barley scent.
Slightly tart/sweet grain malt taste.....at least, I think so.....Itís quite possible my mind created the illusion of "flavour" just to ease the watery disappointment I felt.

From the archives: An alternative to water. If you want to have something else to drink, but do not want it to be overly beery. Sampled in Philadelphia, at Jimís Stakes

A nice simple grainy amazingly flavorless macro like a champ. Honey, bready malts and can.
