Although I am not a huge fan of Anheuser-Busch in general, I am a fan of the Michelob brand. There's many beers under the Michelob banner that I find myself never refusing, under any circumstance. With that being said, time to add another one to the stable...

Appearance (3.25) : 2 finger yellowish off-white head, disintegrates into a 1 finger within seconds, and then finally a ring. The body is pale straw colored, 100% transparent.

Aroma (3.5) : Fresh malt, barley, fresh hop, rice, a little straw. There's not much to it but it's a very crisp, clean smelling beer. Smells better than Michelob "Golden" Light.

Flavor (3.75) : Crisp, malty notes, with rice and barley with a little straw. The faintest hint of hop finishes out the taste. This is a fantastic tasting light beer. There's a couple faint off notes but they are not bad. It's not as easy drinking as Michelob Golden Light, but the flavor is definitely more broad and delicious.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Light to medium bodied (yes I meant that), buzzing carbonation and a smooth crisp finish.

Overall (3.69) : As I sit here with a Golden Light and a regular Light next to each other (I stopped my review and pulled a MGL from the fridge), the Michelob Light tastes much better and has better flavor. Where the Golden Light has grassy straw and corn, Michelob Light has rice, barley, and faint hop. It's not as easy drinking or unoffensive as Michelob Golden Light, nor is it near as cheap, but I have to say the regular Light is the superior beer.
