Super-premium Michelob was developed in 1896 as a "draught beer for connoisseurs." Michelob is brewed with a superior ingredient blend for fuller body with a clean finish, using all imported hops and a high percentage of two-row barley malt.

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.

12 0z bottle. Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. Little to no aroma, just a hint of light malts/grains. Little taste, most slightly sweet cereal grain/light malt flavor. I think that it is better than Yuengling Lager.

Not a bad brew by any means, although the corn is all too evident to call it premium, let alone super-premium. Some maltiness. Pleasant on the palate and the eye.

A clear golden yellow color with a light head. Has a mild flavor (it is a Anheuser -Busch product) that is not bad, a refreshing summer beer. Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass, slightly hoppy little aftertaste.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a light golden amber color with a two finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades very fast, leaving a good level of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer consists mainly of a slightly grainy and grassy smell with a little bit of a skunky aroma mixed within. Some other light aromas of a lemon citrus and a little bit of caramel are there as well. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet caramel and bready taste with a hint of a citrus orange flavor. While the nose suggested a skunky and grassy taste, not much of this was on the tongue, instead the sweet caramel remains strong and is nicely complemented by a bit of lemon and some grainy flavors. Toward the very end, a light herbal and floral hop flavor joins the profile, creating a rather pleasant but somewhat thicker lager flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side for a lager of only 4.8 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thicker body did accentuate the caramel and grainy flavors rather well, but made the body a little too heavy which took away from the more refreshing characteristics traditionally associated with a lager. Overall – The taste on this one really surprised me as it was much more robust and flavorful then I was expecting; a nice unexpected find. The mouthfeel and smell took away from the brew overall however, making it an only OK brew overall.

Per tractar-se d’una cervesa industrial no està malament. Por tratarse de una cerveza industrial no esta mal.

I’ve sampled this more than enough times. Here goes. Always into a pint glass. The appearance was a fairly decent looking amber/bronzed color with a quickly dieing half fingered white foamy head. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell had some light cooked caramel malts or uh...perhaps maybe burnt to an extent. The taste was semi-sweet through the cooked caramel malts. The palate sat fairly light and showed a pretty decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation is exceptionally smooth. Overall, well, its an American Adjunct Lager and to me, well, its actually not bad, its just nothing really good.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass. Appearance: pours a thick, frothy white head the quickly recedes with little to no lacing. Color is clear light golden with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: bready malts, a definite hop presence. Mouthfeel: light, watery, crisp with a dry refreshing finish. Flavor: lightly toasted barley, caramel, nicely balanced with pleasant grassy/herbal hop finish. Overall: a delicious beer. By far the best AB product I have tried.
