2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
In general, you get what you get from an offering such as this: traditional macro-brewed fare geared for the crowd that throws back more than a few at a time at the local BBQ, ball game, or get-together. For what you pay, this is not that bad. Compared to similar brews in its price-range, I would give this AB product a slight nod above. Does this mean itís a great beer? No. But is this also the worst libation you can toss back on a hot day in the sun? Not, by any means. After you get past the yellow pallor, slightly metallic finish, and lack of a lingering aftertaste, Michelob lager stands as advertised: a standard American pale lager for the masses. At least itís not a diet version.

I am rating this based on its place within its genre. Mass produced watered down lagers. On that level this is a fine beer. Some malts taste and even a hop or two

This may be one of the better of the cheap big three beers, with a slight malt presence over the adjunts, but still enjoyed best when you are not drinking it.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear, pale yellow color with a thin white head that quickly fades. Aroma is fairly mild with slightly sweet grain notes. Flavor is almost completely lacking any hop presence with the majority of the flavor coming from the sweet malt. Better than some of the other macro lagers I guess, but still not very good.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not sure why Iím even rating this, but at least it will help my total. Pours light and pale gold. Malts, corn, rice, and aluminum in the scent. Similar flavor. Very carbonated. Nothing special.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, yeast and a bit of malt. Taste was just basic beer, nothing premium here.

Bready, corn. No different than ABís other offerings. Bad "beer."

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to pint. Looks fine for a lager. Smells mild, but tastes decent for a macro lager. Average on the palate. Not bad for what it is.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This might not be a "draught beer for connoisseurs," but it certainly isnít the worst simulacrum of a craft beer I have tried. Michelob has never been the same since they retired the hourglass bottles! And Iím not talking new-age hourglass that is pictured; Iím talking old-school, put-on-top-the-oven hourglass bottles! Damn I miss those! Even so, Michelob lager is smooth and slightly sweet, and definitely drinkable.

I donít see much difference between this Anheiser-Busch "premium" brew and any other AB product. It light, watery, mild and lacks anything to really set it apart from anything else.
