The taste is very much the same bland experience that defines Michelob Ultra, except with Amber there is a bit of a darker and sweeter flavor subtly behind the "trademark" Michelob taste. This makes for a slightly fuller tasting beer.
I would not suggest drinking this unless there were no other options available. Not the worst beer in the world, but not good.

Michelob Ultra Amber
12 oz bottle
Recent bottling, wolfed down 07/06
Medium pour in a mug
Poured amber with a rapidly faind 1/2 inch head.
Smelt of a trace of fruity malt
Taste was light and shortlived upfront sweet berrymaltiness drying off quickly in an ending with an effervesscent metallic taste. Mouthfeel was light and bubbly.
Overall, it may wake up Michelob Ultra drinkers taste buds, but not many others.

I tried this in hopes that the amberness would over power the macroness. Once again I was wrong, very very wrong. The color is a cross between yellow and amber. It has, or once had a fizzy off white head. The nose is of artificial sugars and ricey malts. The taste is also very artificial and cloying. Not much of a hop or malt base to it. A decent body is not too carbonated. I guess I could drink this if a gun was to my head.

Poured into a 12oz glass and was in no danger of spilling a drop. Theres virtually no head, and anything that did form, was gone after I blinked. I wouldn't call the color amber...if anything is was a slightly darker shade of normal FYB. Smell was tinny and metallic with some sort of malt-like smell. This tasted awful, like stagnant carbonated water. Has the feel too of water...I'd rather drink water. You can chug this, which is the only reason it didn't get a 1....but why would you want to?!?!?! Maybe my girlfriends dad will drink the rest of the sixer....

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with some white head and a soda like carbonation and not much lacing. Nose is similar to lemonade. Body is thin and watery. Taste includes some sweetness followed by an abrupt dryness, there is a slight hint of hops. Nice sinkhole beer.

A friend bought this for me to taste with the best intentions, I'm sure to him it's overwhelming, but....
Pours a decent amber color, but there is no head, or way to produce one.
Grassy, grainy smell, where is the amber coming from? Certainly not crystal malt. Smells like the rest of AB's offerings.
Tinny and virtually flavorless. Maybe a bit of sweet caramel, but it's likely mostly psychological.
Thin and watery, no better than it's ultra brother.

Well where should I begin. Im not that much of a technical reviewer so here it goes. somewhat technical but not like some people. ok so here it goes. this beer is just somewhat darker than mich ultra or budweiser or (fill in the blank ricey pisswater beer here). same quickly disappearing head as most macros with no lacing whatsoever. the taste...well is there any?? the taste is kinda lilke amber bock mixed with mich ultra to create a beer with a little more flavor than reguar mich ultra but not as much as amber bock or mich lager. what can I say I bought this to switch things up (as in the realm of my budget beers) normally I try to stay away from all macros period favoring Paulaner Salvator Dopplebock or a classic Sam Adams Boston Lager. Final verdict on Mich Ultra Amber: This beer sucks!!!
