2.4/5 rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Presentation: 12oz brown bottle with a "Born On Date" clearly marked. A silver sheath like label that lays over the neck and partially over the cap, "All Imported Hops" is stated on the label.
Appearance: Extremely pale yellow colour, as clear as water. Active carbonation is shown from the large amount of bubbles rising to the top, a big white foamy head forms and leaves a one fingered white lace for most of the time the beer is around before it is consumed.
Smell: Faint fresh cut hay aroma and cooked corn with a light astringent grain in the nose also. A very clean aroma, not much to pick up off it.
Taste: Light bodied without a doubt, a well placed and perfectly structured smooth mouth feel helps the beer go down. Clean palate with a moderate carbonation after the pouring. Not much in the malt flavour other than a light touch of sweetness and a growing astringent grain that ends up mild at most. Hops are noticeable but are lazy and don't really seem to do much other than add a touch of bitterness and very vague flavour. After taste is semi-dry and nearly immaculately clean.
Notes: Such a clean beer, almost too clean. There are worse light beers out there but this one leaves you wondering "How much stuff was filtered out of this beer?"

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.
