12 oz. single, bought for $1.19,
A: Pours a pale yellow, with a long-lasting soapy white head with solid retention, leaves a lot of lacing at first, but I think that was more due to my pour than anything else.
S: Very husky grain smell, astringent, light grass.
T: Real barley malt is evident, with a dry cereal grain taste. Hop character is light, with distinctly grassy bitterness. Like the smell, the flavour has some astringency to it, more evident as it warms. A little more malt character would be advised. Not bad at all to be honest, no adjunct or off-flavours.
M: Thin, very light, crisp, mild carbonation, what you'd expect in a light lager.
D: Definitely one of the better versions of this style that I've come across, much better than AB's other lights that I have had - Bud Light and Michelob Ultra. Soft and easy to drink, if it was a couple dollars cheaper, I'd be inclined to buy a sixer of it. To the craft beer drinker, you really don't get much, but it would be easy to drink a sixer over the course of a hot summer day.

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.
