I'll start off this review by saying that this is my go-to light beer. Some like Bud Light religiously, this is MY light beer. It's just so refreshing. Some hate it, and that's okay, to each their own. But for me, this beer goes great with anything and I'd never turn it down unless I was puking green.

Appearance - Small 1 finger head that dissipates quickly. Body is straw colored and transparent.

Smell - Musty grains, sweet corn, metallic vegetable, small hint of overly ripe bananas and pineapple at the end.

Taste - Corn, flavored seltzer, aftertaste of wheaty malts. Slightly sour but not off-putting. Easy drinking.

Mouthfeel - Super carbonated, a touch of smooth, and ends semi-dry.

Overall - Again, on average I probably drink more Michelob Golden Light than any other beer from any other brewer. I buy this in the cases. It's just so easy, grab it and don't think, it's just great with anything...and flavorful, everything is just right. It is, in my opinion, the ideal light beer.
