Michelob Hop Hound Amber Wheat

12 oz single from Total Wine, Perimeter, Atlanta, GA, USA.
The latest (I guess) AB incarnation/stealth venture into the “craft” market. Strange stuff for AB, all marketing rather than a true invested INTEREST in artisanal products.
Pours a dirty orange, murky and fairly unattractive color. Head and lace are both disappointing; this looks pretty drab and uninspirational. Looks a little tired already.
Completely FLAT – both literally in terms of lack of carbonation and metaphorically in terms of a lack of taste and presence. By that, I mean there is simply nothing to it. Mild sweetness the beer but it is watery and listless to put it mildly. The style is one that often suffers from a lack of depth and this beer takes it to that ultimate level.
VERY poor effort and close to being one of the poorer AB efforts. Shabby beer.
