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.

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.
