Re-review, because I felt like I my old review was too generically mean spirited. That, and bile fascination.
A: Pours a VERY light straw color with perfect clarity and strong carbonation rising to the head. White colored head with pathetic retention/lacing.
S: There is a noble aspect to this beer...granted, it's pretty unrefined, but the fact that it exists in a light macro is stunning. Otherwise features the typical grainy note (in this case, rice, not corn) of most light macros.
T: Not good, but expectedly not good. There is a slightly rough tone of rice adjuncts at first, and that slimy aftertaste I detest in most adjuncts, but otherwise, there's almost no flavor at all. You could pound these, but why would you want to? Just pound water instead!
M: Seltzer water-esque.
O: It's good for one thing: when for whatever reason, you're pounding beers like a madman and don't want to seem as hoi polloi as the typically redneck Bud Light drinkers. That's it. People, I drink this stuff so you don't have to, so just get some real beer instead. Might I suggest some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale?

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.
