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.
