I had always semi-enjoyed Mich Golden Draft Light, but had yet to try the heavy until now. I was pleasantly surprised at how flavorful it is compared to the average American Standard. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter, it finishes very nicely and provides a good aftertaste. Aroma has hints of cereal (Fruit Loops?) The "other" MGD takes a hit on appearance, however. An initially large, frothy, white head fully diminishes into nothingness. The flat, yellow body is almost lifeless. But, close your eyes, and Mich Golden Draft emerges as one of the better American Standards.

This is what I like to call a good "work" beer. Something to wet the whistle on a Saturday afternoon while painting the house, changing the oil, or cutting the grass. Buy it for quantity, not quality. Ive had worse.

Mich diesel we call it. Goes down hard and is hard on the head in the morning. But other than that....

A nice copy of Miller GD. However, MGD isnt all that good.

What is the market for this? What the hell is it anyway? Is it supposed to be better than regular Michelob, worse, better or worse than Bud, better or worse than urine, they all taste the same to me anyway (well, I havent actually TASTED urine). And the bottle is stupid. It makes me feel like I am drinking from a bulb holder that fell off of a chandelier or something, which consequently makes the beer seem to have a taste of the dust that would undoubtedly be in said bulb holder. Im only rating this to get back into the Top 50 anyway.

Fizzy light golden color with a weak wispy white head. Minimal aroma and flavor. A standard, american standard.
