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, you’ve 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 didn’t have any faults. But then, it didn’t have any laudable qualities either.

Another great "lawnmower" beer. The "head" is light and bubbly with a crisp start and finish.

Above average for swill. Otherwise, typical swill characteristics. Light, crisp, drinkable.

Kavu (3291) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2015
12oz bottle @ Migration 2015 poster session. Pours very pale golden with a high head. Aroma and flavor are weak grassy malts. Weak.

bergstaden (1815) - Røros, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2015
Pale golden with a white head - No aroma to speak off - No real flavours to speak of either - Nothing in the finish - This was just no flaours at all, no good

Real watery bud light. If I could give a negative palate I would. Clear yellow real clear but weird light yellow. Why it gets decent appearance rating. Very carbonated like some water. No aroma no flavor.

Light, lacks character, decent beer for mixing beer cocktails like the beerita, or rocket beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours clear. Aroma of corn, grain. Taste, not very much flavor, watered down.

Was given this on draft by a colleague in Texas. Had never experienced a ’lite’ beer before. Immediately wished he hasn’t bothered. Very pale in colour, little head or aroma. It was served extremely cold, but the overwhelming sensation was...nothing. Absolutely no taste whatsoever. I’ve never before or since had a ’beer’ that tasted so watery. It’s just wasted calories. Avoid.

KoRoBeNiKi (133) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Bottled. Very pale golden color with a basically non-existent small white head. Aroma is hops, bittenness, and some unwanted metal/rubber. Unbalanced and not refreshing. My least favorite beer thus far. 1, 1, 1, 0, 1

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Served in the bottle. A light malty aroma with hints of bubblegum and candy. The taste follows on from the aroma with a sweetish malt flavour, again hints of candy fruit and bubblegum. The finish is short. Bottle @ Arthur’s Hoboken, New Jersey.
