From the 12 oz. bottle stamped 12233-MW63. Sampled on October 24, 2012.

It pours pale yellow with loads and loads of foamy white head that eventually gives way.

The aroma is corn, rice, and clean hops which is about what I would expect from the style.

The body is thin.

The taste is fresh with grains and a crisp, quick light hop finish. It is really what I would expect from the style so I would call it average for the style. Nothing crafty here. Just plain old thirst quenching stuff.

I think this beer has an above average taste that doesn't bite but is full bodied and flavorable. I perfer a glass bottle over the can or tap. To me it is a much richer beer than it's brouther Ultra that taste much closer to water. My only problem is it seems that Michelob Light is fading out of the picture. I am having difficulty finding my favorite beer in the market place. I guess that is why this is known as Dad's beer but the yuppie beer Ultra just does't measure up for me.
