Bottled, canned common, this particular beer rose to popularity in the late 70s 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 its market. Its marketed as a refreshing, light beer and you certainly get what you pay for.

Did someone switch the bud light n me, cant 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.

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.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 4-2-13- 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, Im not sure why. We mustve been victims of advertising.

Reviewed from notes. Sometimes an after hockey beer. Most of the time when it was consumed in a glass, it was a pint glass. Here goes. 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 wasnt any lacing. The smell was, uh.....what was that....as many times as Ive had this, honestly, there really wasnt 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 Ill 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.

Bottle into pint glass, because Im classy. Light pale golden color with some white lacing. Aroma of faint pale malt sweetness, slight corn, grainy and faintest grass note. Taste adds maybe some toasted grain and a metallic note. Light body, heavy carbination, watery, crisp with clean finish. Not the best, not the worst. Another watery lager from AB does what it does.

355ml bottle. Drinkable. I actually could taste some hops over the corny light beer malt. Body was pretty crisp when it was really cold. Overall, better than Coors Light.
