12oz bottle at Mahar’s for $3.

Appearance: looks like a marzen. Orange brown hazy body. Decent head retention. Quite a lot of lacing.

Aroma: not much. Some caramel. Almost root beer like.

Taste: why does this beer remind me of a lollipop!? Tastes like a root beer lollipop. Some caramel notes too. Pretty sweet but a weird tang in the finish. Then again this is an AB-inbev brew, so go figure.

Mouthfeel: little thin. Little flat.

Drinkability: decent Taste makes me want to drink it only in sips though. Overall: not bad for a Michelob product but isn’t what I look for in a wheat beer. They could slap a "marzen" label on it and it’d be more appropriate.

Grade: 5/10
