Michelob Pale Ale

12 oz single from Tower, Buford Highway, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour reveals a pretty decent, orgnge clarity and some head with a little retention. No lace to speak of.
The nose seems EXCEPTIONALLY malty for a even a pale ale, and the sweetness is the abiding memory of the smell.
Tastes have an upfront soapy nature (good), but fade rather badly. Sweetness cuts across the back end of the beer in a syrupy manner to leave me (and the palate) feeling a touch abused! Finish is not balanced and quickly reverts back to an unbalanced collection of tastes.
Not the worst effort from AB, but still leaves so much to be desired. I might be better if these beers were left to those that give a shit.
