Michelob Ultra Amber is a light beer in every sense. It pours to a very light amber/golden color and produces a very slight head of foam that collapses into nothing within seconds. The aroma of this beer isn't too bad, even though it is also light. It offers a certain honey- like scent along with some sweetness.

Taste- wise, Michelob Ultra Amber falls way short of my minimum expectations. It offers a light taste that combines some very faint caramel notes and generic grains, with almost no hop character. The body is thin and there is a little too much carbonation action taking place. There is also a metallic- like flavor that greets the palate in the middle of the tasting and carries through to the finish.

Michelob Ultra Amber is very lacking in taste, very light in body, and very dull and lifeless overall. I actually like some of the Michelob specialty brews and I was hoping that Ultra Amber would be a decent beer. But unfortunately, this is a light beer in the truest sense, with little body and taste and little or nothing in its composition that is noteworthy or memorable.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The look was typical of a Michelob beer which is ok, poor was a light white head that was gone as quickly as it came the color was a bit pale compared to that of other amber beer taste was over powered by carbonation but after wasn't bad. not to much to say about this beer other than it would be a good crisp beer on a hot day with a decent taste. I would buy it again for that reason only.
