2.33/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from 12oz bottle.

A- Pours a pale clear yellow color. This had a small half finger white head that dies down instantly. No lacing left on the glass.

S- No beer aroma on this at all. This is all raspberry but almost too artifical smelling. Reminds me of this raspberry jam my family would buy when I was younger. Some light pomegranate in this but quickly gets covered by raspberry aroma.

T- This doesn't taste like beer at all. Raspberry upfront of this that is a little watered down overall. Pomegranate flavors come in but are sweet and to the point before dying into a watery raspberry flavor. There is a light beer finish on this that brings forth a sweet grainy flavor.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is very high on this beer. Raspberry left everywhere on the palate into the aftertaste with some light grains in the overall aftertaste. Crisp and clean tasting. Watery at times in the mouth.

D- Drinkable beer. Better than the other flavors they came out with. Still this is not really beer I think just some watered down raspberry flavor with some artifical sweetness added to it.

Light fruity beers are not for everyone. Personally, I can't stand hoppy bitter beers and that seems to be the trend with craft brewers in the US. I prefer lighter sweeter beers. Michelob's Pomegranate Rasberry beer has been my favorite staple beer for years! I love this beer! It's light, sweet and refreshing. Perfect for hot summer days. If I am camping or at a friend's BBQ and plan to be drinking for hours on end, this is the beer I bring. Most hard core beer snobs will cringe at this, but I love to add orange juice and make a beermosa with this beer. Like I said, this beer isn't for everyone and I expect many to turn their nose up at any beer than is light and sweet, but if this is the style your taste buds prefer you will enjoy it.

Sampled tonight on 5/25/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage Michelob thumbprint glass goblet.

Pours a very light straw yellow in color with a very small fizzy white head. No lacing is seen to mention. The aroma is better than the taste and is of some sweet fruits. The taste is well...really bad! Like drinking a lightly flavored club soda or seltzer water. Way to much carbonation, and even more than other Bud products. Overall, I will not be drinking this one again!

2.31/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with significant amounts of active visible carbonation and some faint notes of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall fizzy sudsy bright white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of artificial raspberry and pomegranate, like you would expect from a candy... very light hints of grainy malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of slightly sweet grainy malts with some moderate flavors of artificial raspberry and hints of pomegranate. Overall this beer is not quite as sweet as I was expecting and there is a strange metallic/artificial flavor that persists after you finish. Light hints of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Very light bodied with moderate to significant amounts of carbonation. Thin/watery.

O: Not overly offensive but not something that I would ever pick up again - the flavors and aromas are a little too artificial for me. Best served ice cold because the flavors did not improve as this beer warmed up during the drinking.
