For the style, and cheapness, my favorite one out there. Would much rather drink this in bulk than bud light or miller any day.

12 fl oz. can, with canned on date August 16, 2014 printed on the bottom of the can. Another cheap adjunct riddled beer from Anheuser-Busch. Gifted to me from my neighbor. Thanks, I guess.

Poured into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.

A - It pours a clear gold colored body with about a finger of fizzy white head that thins to a ring. It doesn't look horrible, but it's nothing special. 3

S - The smell is comprised of the usual suspects - cheap adjuncts / grains / wheat, yeasty, with some alcohol fumes & a slight sour note. 2.5

T - Taste is the same - grainy / wheaty / corny / adjuncty. A very generic "beer" sort of aftertaste; it actually reminds me a bit of Miller Lite at times. Not offensive, but there isn't much going on here. 2.5

M - The feel is crisp and clean. Exceptionally smooth and easy drinking with the low 4.10% abv. 2.5

Overall, it is what it is - another cheap inoffensive light adjunct lager. Definitely drinkable, but not unique or memorable. Would I have it again? I suppose so, but I definitely wouldn't go out of my way for it. Another tick from the bottom of the barrel with plenty more to go!

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. It's just so easy, and flavorful, and everything is right. It is, in my opinion, the optimum light beer.
