UPDATED: NOV 12, 2012 Budís richer brother. Marginally better than Bud. A safe choice when entertaining non craft beer types if you want them to think youíre a big spender.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap at Rendezvous in Memphis.
Arrived looking like a typical American lager; crystal clear pale yellow with almost no head.
The aroma wasnít much, a little bit of hay and grassy hops were all I could pick up.
The flavor had more in the way of breadyness. Hops are nearly nonexistent. Just the lightest in the way of bitterness with no real hop flavor.
Overall, a good beer to wash down barbecue with but thatís about it. Not something I would really seek out.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours clear, pale gold with a tall white head.
Scent is malt, grain.
Taste is fairly sweet malt...again, grainy.
Itís plain, itís weak....
However, it is probably in the top 10 for American Domestics.
but...you get what you pay for.

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."
