The pour is straw colored with a good amount of carbonation. The taste is refreshing, grains, water, along with a light hop presence. This is a good beer to unwind with after a long day, but I don't think that I've tried the regular Michelob full flavor beer. Cheers! C-

When it's fresh it's still the best beer I've ever tasted.

Ended up picking up another Mystery 6pk and I found one of these within. I haven't had one of these since 2009 and I remember enjoying it for what it was.

L: Pours a clear golden with a rocky, 2 finger white head that dissipates quickly into a very thin, white ring. Minimal lacing to be seen.

S: Subtly sweet malt bread comes first on the nose with mildly spicy and floral noble hops to follow. Fairly pleasant.

T: The flavors follow the nose to a T with the mild malt bread beginning and the mild noble hops finish. I rather enjoy it for the style.

F: Medium-light bodied, ample carbonation, smooth, yet finishes short and crisp. Easily sessionable. Quite refreshing!

O: This is pretty fair offering for a Light Lager. Is it the absolute best of Light Lagers available? No, but it is fair. If I went to a friend's house and they offered me this, I wouldn't mind having one. It isn't nearly as terrible as many have made it out to be. It's great on a hot day and has a great flavor profile, albeit a mild one. Give it a try while grilling out in the summer heat. It's very refreshing.

This is a fabulous beer, much better than most mass marketed brands. It has way, way more taste than other light beers such as Bud Light or Coors Light. Really it has sort of a premium quality to it. Remember, "weekends were made for Michelob".

I think Anheuser-Busch needs to do away with Michelob ultra and start producing more Michelob light I heard secondhand they’re going to do away with Michelob light that be a huge mistake

L: 3.5 Golden body with ample carbonation and a sudsy white head
S: 2. Nothing much to speak of. Not pleasant.
T: 3.25 Pretty sweet. Corn syrup. Barley.
F: 3. Medium bodied. Heavy mouthfeel for a light lager.
O: 3. Prefer the Original lager, but if you're looking for something like it with even less alcohol by volume then this is your best bet.

I hope 5 was the highest rating because I love Michelob Light! I’ve been drinking it since I began socially drinking. I hope that it will still be available because I’m not a fan of Michelob Ultra.

Great beer. Drink it as cold as you can get it on a hot 105 degree Georgia day, can't be beat.

12oz bottle coded 21214 poured into a pokal glass at just above fridge temp 4.1% ABV per label. The beer pours brilliantly bright pale straw yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a pencil thin ring and single layer of tiny bubbles. The aroma is faint with floral hops and sweet grain. The taste is semisweet pale malt with a pretty quick hit of watery diacetyl and some floral and grassy notes. Mild bitterness. The mouthfeel is thin bodied with above average carbonation and a not so dry finish. Overall, poor. Movie butter popcorn is the prevailing note here. Soapy and sticky on the tongue. Ice cold or with food, you may have something, but there are way better light beers to enjoy.
