Loved this beer for many years. Always look forward to having it when I'm in the USA. Wish they would bring back the tear drop bottle.

This was my grandfather's beer and the first beer I ever tasted. In the late 1980's it was top shelf American beer. I would say that it is still the best offering from Anheuser Bush. It is getting hard to find these days but is worth a try.

I am old enough to remember the times we (meaning my good old high school/college buddies) drank Budweiser as a staple session beer WAY before there was any great craft beers going in the U.S. Our special beer was Michelob... and then we'd go to the classic German or Danish imports for the big special occasions.

5/8/17 (Las Vegas, NV). 12 oz bottle, no pour, purchased at Casino Royale, the best $1 beer special on The Las Vegas Strip! Long standing special, Casino Royale is a great center strip casino to pop in for a bottle or two of Michelob. Clear blond, mild hops and malt aroma. Mild taste of malt and hops. Solid carbonation and mouth feel. Overall OK offering and hope the $1 bottles continue at Casino Royale for another 25 years!

Pours pale, lemonade yellow with decent head that leaves quickly huddling around the rim. Aroma notes is hard to distinguish. Tastes okay for an American pale. Finishes light. Ultra-light bodied. Warm weather beer.

Looks like a Budweiser. However, has more of a malt and hoppy taste. Better and crispier mouthfeel. Overall, it's an improved version of Budweiser. However, only just. Compared to other beers it's mid road.

This beer is a more expensive Budweiser, it is neither good nor bad. It is pale yellow in color, with some head that resembles soap suds. This is the better of the Anheauser-Busch products, and that isn't saying much.
