3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Michelob is a sort of American classic. It is quite unique, it is standard in appearance, has an aroma consistent with its flavor, and has a moderate body that favors slightly the lighter side. The story is really in its taste: the origin of the American phenomenon of quality hops being the more dominant characteristic of anything brewed with any pretense of being a specialty lager. However, unlike most other domestic macros, an appreciable amount of very grainy, if slightly sweet, malts are apparent and effectively give Michelob a nice balance you would be hard-pressed to find in others of its class.

Originally rated on 1/28/10. Aroma of grass, malt and and some hops. A golden yellow body, not much carbonation, head or lace. Standard lager taste, overall not much going on at all.

Backlog. Multiple times back in the US. Not much to say really. Not overly sweet at least and refreshing. That’s about all I guess.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 This was always my favorite American style lager. Enough body to keep it from being watery but also goes down super smooth like this style is trying for. For the style about as good as it gets. Don’t know why anyone would drink Coors or Budweiser over this.

Michelob is basically Budweiser without the rice and perhaps most of the beechwood aging.. It might not be an all malt, but it appears rather close, but it is balanced unoffending brew that has some hops but.., albeit boring brew. The thing about Michelob (and it’s light version) is that it is strangely hard to find now. It’s like Anheuser Busch doesn’t want it to "compete" with Budweiser, Bud Light of Michelob Ultra sales(?). Why is this?

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Golden with a dense white head. Aromas of bready cereals, malts and some corn develops. Rather fizzy with a watery texture and a light body. rather malty sweet with then nothing else developing really, just a malty finish.

Just as watery as you could expect from an American mass produced lager. The bottle is more exciting than the contents.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Twelve ounce bottle from The Party Source, tasted on November 26, 2015. Gold hue, cheap adjunct aroma, taste is a bitter trip to Adjunct City with a hint of cardboard. I remember the pre-craft days when this was considered a really premium beer and an expensive one at $2.00 a six pack. Either my palate has improved, this stuff has declined in quality, or, most likely, both. It’s still better than its AB InBev cousin Budweiser, but so what?
