Has anyone tried this swil?
SWMBO called me from Wally-world and said there was this 'Sampler Collection' of Pale Ale, Wheat, Marzen/Octoberfest, and Porter' so I told her to get it. Then she got home and I realized that is was all Michelob...I thought it was different Micro Brews.
So we tried them anyway...keep in mind, that I'm a noob and don't know what these stiles are actually suppose to taste like. But here's my reviews:
Augh (if that's how it's spelled) this was awfully!
It had a interesting first impression, but then a bitter that just kept swelling to crap! And left an awfully bitter aftertaste (although not as bad as the first bitter climax)
Damn, it tasted like the first one! Except it didn't have that bitter that just kept swelling to worse and worse. And the aftertaste wasn't as bad.
Yuck! I should point out that I LIKE Fat Tire, and Love Moose Drool (not that they are wheat beer) didn't care for Widmers Hefewiezen, but do enjoy the occasional Honey wheat beer. But I've never tasted swil like this before! It had such a 'spiced' aftertaste that I thought I had drank some pumpkin pie spice or something.
I've drank many a crappie beer, to wash down the tequila, but this is the first time I've drank tequila to wash down the 'beer'. Is this what wheats are suppose to tasted like?????? If so, I've drank my last!
Pale Ale: I'm not a huge fan of Pale Ale, mostly because American Pale Ales are OVERLY hopped, but I liked this. I'm not sure if it's because it was a decent beer, or if it was just the least of the 4 evils, but It is the ONLY beer out of Michelob's Specialty Ales & Lagers that I will ever buy again!
I welcome any comments from anyone who has tried these beers, and want to set me straight about what the styles are really supose to taste like. My best guess is that this is Michelob's attempt at convincing people that their regular crapy beer is better than micro-brews. Had I not tasted better micro-brews before this, I probably would never try anything but a BMC lagger again.
