To me, Michelob Light is much better than bud light or coors light. This beer has some flavor.

I think its biggest flaw is that it is too heavy to be a light beer. I think it is more comparable to Budweiser or regular Michelob than to light beers.

It is not horrible, but falls into that mediocre beer category.

So why bother.

Yet another enthralling installment of "Free Beers From Work". This one goes so far to prove its lightness it lists calorie, carb, protein and fat amounts on the label.

Pale straw yellow, white head, retains well as a thin but full cap.

Decent nose strength for a light beer, basically just pale and bready malts, but not bad.

Taste is about the same, mostly just grainy/pale/bready malt with a non-existent/minuscule amount of lemony hop flavor, but not offensive, more flavor than your average light lager. Decent finish.

Especially high on the carbonation, but a good body to it, doesn't feel like water. No off-tastes.

Really not a bad light beer, actually tastes like something at least, much better than Bud/Coors/Busch Light.
