Got a bottle of this only because I heard the formula would be changed, and to my curiosity, will see whether how much of a difference they'll be between this and the future all-malt Mich Light. On to the beer:
At first, I might have mistaken this for a pale lager, as it pours a surprisingly good head into my recently bought Kronenbourg 1664 glass. Faint smells of adjuncts stop as I tilt the glass into my mouth, and taste Uncle Ben's rice, with a small trace of bitterness. A bit watery, but firm for a light beer. Not a harsh beer to drink, but nothing really happening either. I guess what I'm trying to say is it's not bad for a light beer. And that's with adjuncts!

Sampled this evening on 7/9/14 and had this one many times over the years but surprised they still made it as I haven't seen it. Love the old 'lava lamp' style brown bottle it came in 20 years ago. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 'Michelob" glass goblet.
Pours a lighter golden color with a very thin white head that settles just to around the sides of the glass. Very little spotty lacing is seen but not much really. The aroma isn't much, just of some grassy grain for the most part with a hint of sweet corn. The taste is about the same with a slight sweet finish. Much more flavor and tastes better than their more popular "Michelob Ultra" which I didn't care much for. Medium carbonation. Overall, not bad and close to the flavor from 20 years ago that I remember.
