Michelob Golden Light



Michelob Golden Light has got to be one of the most underrated beers out there. Originally only distributed to the Great Lakes region and now distributed more widely. I’m not sure how widely, but I’ve not seen it in my area until now. I had it first at that cradle of 19th Century brewing: St. Louis, MO at Anheuser-Busch InBev’s facility there. Upon my first sampling of the beer on draught, I quickly discovered a new favorite.

I drink macro, micro, import, and craft beers. I believe they all have a place and purpose. Michelob Golden Light is a simple refreshing beer. Yes, I’m a hop lover. There are times though when a simple light lager suffices. This was one of those times. Let’s take a closer look.

Beer: Michelob Golden Light

Brewery: Anheuser-Busch InBev

Beer Style: Light Lager

Abv: 4.10%

Serving Methodology: 12 oz bottle poured into dimpled pint

Country of Origin: United States of America

Background: This is one of those outliers when it comes to Light Lagers in general. The other two are Michelob Ultra and Corona Light.

Taste & Aroma: Michelob Ultra has a simple aroma. Malt, flaky and cracker-like. The flavor is rice, malty, with a sharp finish.

Final Analysis: This is a good light beer. Stay clear of Bud Light. Try Michelob Golden Light instead.
