2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very clean pale American lager that goes down easy and doesn’t offend or excite. Can drink with almost any food. Certainly better than most macro lagers and much better than Mich Golden or especially that funky Miller Genuine. Don’t be such a snob.

It is what it is. Really nothing special, but actually one of the better american pilsner lagers. Only good after working your butt off in the blazing summer heat.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle found in La Paz, Bolivia, labelled Michelob Lager with 4.8% alcohol. Okay white head but not much density, yellow body. Soft aroma of hops dispersed by carbonation. Flavour is murky rice adjuncts with just a hint of hops. Just about what you’d expect from an American macro.

0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Wet grain and very light if any herbal hop character. Flavor of wet grain and straw. However even at that very little at best. Just a little better than bud.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

"i actually like the Ultra version better, so what does that say about the qualities of this beer, when the dumbed down version is preferred??? nothing good..."

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
