Twelve ounce bottle from The Party Source, tasted on November 27, 2015. Yellow color, cheap pale lager aroma with a weird perfume-like smell I have encountered in a lot of cheap lagers, light adjunct /sour taste. I will never try Michelob Ultra but what’s depressing is that this crap and regular Michelob are probably better. PhatCatt (85) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 9, 2017 A very good lager, the hops are very much there but are not overly abundant.I like the maltiness too, perfecto. Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottled, canned common, this particular beer rose to popularity in the late 70’s with the claim of it being a light beer.
Poured into a glass a light golden watery color with a large bubbly head that vanishes in under 15 seconds, smells lightly of hops in a ’tea in the sun all day’ way. Taste is almost nonexistent with the subtle dash of a ’bad tea’ taste. Goes down light with a somewhat bitter finish. Maybe a subtle hint of lemon.
Although the rating I give is horrible, the truth is that this beer fits it’s market. It’s marketed as a refreshing, light beer and you certainly get what you pay for. Low69caprice (100) - Yucca valley, California, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Did someone switch the bud light n me, can’t tell difference. Clear yellow real clear but weird light yellow. Why it gets decent appearance rating. Very carbonated like some water. No aroma no flavor. Worsenma (74) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2015
It is what it is. Really nothing special. Only good after working your butt off in the blazing summer heat.

Golden colored water that resembles a watered down beer. This is a perfect beer for those who are scared of beer that has flavor. Not a good beer at all. Shanebrews (293) - Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Michelob Light is a superior light beer. It achieves body, balance, and a discernible and pleasant hop note. It is also refreshing. More expensive than many competitors. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - SEP 6, 2014

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light golden-yellow color with a two finger pure white head. The head fades over about a two minute time frame to leave a rather surprisingly good level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell –The aroma is very light. The light detectable smells are of a bread, corn, paper, caramel and light citrus hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a tiny bit of a bready flavor consisting mainly of a corny sweet flavor. As the flavors advanced the sweetness grew even stronger more toward the middle with some other light fruit flavors as well as some light caramel flavor coming to the tongue. The taste is rather sweet from here to the end, leaving a rather sweet flavor of corn, caramel, and some fruit with very little of any other flavors to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to above average side for a light brew (but still on the thinner side overall) with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The slightly thicker body for a light brew accentuates some of the sweeter corn and papery flavors a bit to heavily, where a lighter body and a bit more carbonation would have better hidden these and created a more refreshing style brew.
Overall – Higher in sweetness but lower in refreshment for a beer of the “light” category. A little too much corn and papery taste combined with the off feel make this brew one to likely avoid.

Another beer of my youth. For some reason we felt that Michelob was a classier beer than most of the other lagers around, I’m not sure why. We must’ve been victims of advertising. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
Sometimes an after hockey beer.
Most of the time when it was consumed in a glass, it was a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking super light yellow color with a super clear transparency about it. Carbonation was seen rising at a rapid pace. The white one finger foamy head rapidly dissipated into oblivion. There wasn’t any lacing.
The smell was, uh.....what was that....as many times as I’ve had this, honestly, there really wasn’t much, maybe some cooked corn if anything, but even that was barely there.
The taste was semi-sweet but that was about it.
The palate, well, it sat exceptionally light and showed a superb sessionability about it.
Overall, uh....its Michelob Light. Have you ever had it? Hmmm....okay, uh...cheers and I’ll leave it at that thinking I could fit that "confused look" emoticon in this to wonder why I felt the need to even say something about this.
