This beer is orange/tan in color and a good pour produces a creamy white head of foam that isnt huge, but has a good amount of staying power nonetheless. The aroma of this beer is weak, and what little smell I could detect combines scents of bread with a small amount of hops. There was a small amount of sourness in the nose, too.
Flavors in this beer are slight. I could detect some citrus- mostly orange- and a little bit of apple at the end. There is a bit of a biscuit and caramel taste with the malt body but, again, it isnt very pronounced. The beer finishes clean and crisp, with a slight hop flavor that goes from bitter to a tad sour as you consume.
Like other entries in the Michelob classic series, this one doesnt have enough goodness to make it a great beer. Also, once again, it isnt a bad beer at all. It falls in that same middle ground that the other Michelob specialty beers fall. Its a very average beer that isnt impressive in any way but that is also good enough to make it an acceptable drinking option if nothing better is available

3.06/5 rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3
A somewhat dated 12 oz bottle from the back fo the refrigerator, wih the review tempered by memory from fresher bottles.
Look: surprisingly good, with a clear, deep amber body covered by a rather creamy looking, bone-colored head.
Aroma: earthy hops are stronger than the malt base
Flavor: again earthy hops over a sweet and light roast malt base but tainted with some metallic tones (attributed largely to age) and hints of corn.
Feel: Medium body with a very good carbonation level.
O: given a fresh bottle, not bad; even roughly average and, therefore, better than expected.
