A - White head that lasts about 15 seconds. The body is almost a fluorescent yellow.

S - The scent of raspberries and malt. It actually smells rather inviting.

T - Very little flavor here other than a slight berry taste and a hint of malt.

M - Very cold and slightly coarse.

~ This was left at my place after a cookout a few weeks back. I'm glad to have had the chance to try it but I won't be sampling this brew again anytime soon.

Oh, how can I describe this beer. I tried all three of Michelob's fruit beers in a row, and how I wish I could forget the experience.

This was a scary, yellow-colored beer that resembled nothing so much as a carbonated whiz. There was less than a half finger head, and it was loud, fast, and fizzy, like a soda pop.

Aroma was of fragrant raspberries, almost floral, but there was no malt character at all (thank God).

Taste was like flat raspberry seltzer water. Nothing else. Wasn't at all like a beer.

Mouthfeel was fizzy and thin.

Drinkability... no. Just... no. Avoid it.

Into a pint glass, pale clear yellow color with some fizzy carbonation. Thin fizzy cap quickly fades to nothing. Nose is very sweet, like artificial sweetener. Scent of watermelon Jolly Ranchers and soggy grain. Taste is not as sweet as the nose. Mild berry flavor with a bit of wheaty/bready taste. Mouth is subtly bubbly, very smooth, light, and fizzy. Overall: Flavored malt water. Inoffensive. Sweeter smell than taste. Not very “beer” like at all. This is what I call “chick beer.”

This was “beer” one of three from a 12 pack sampler at a friend’s house. I only drank half of each beer. I can’t imagine anyone who actually likes beer drinking more than that.

A very light clear gold color with a tiny white head for about 5 seconds.

The aroma is a lot like raspberry Koolaid.

The taste is also a bit artificial raspberry and pomegranate, but lighter and, thankfully, not as sweet as Koolaid, not much like beer either. I couldn't really find where they hid the "Pilsner", I must have missed it. This is kind of like a lighter wine cooler and may appeal to some cooler fans. Finishes a bit tart with a bit of artificial raspberry aftertaste.

Very light bodied, a bit watery, but could work as a hot weather cooler if you like the taste.

Ultra light in color, almost white. Little white fizzy head disappears quickly. Lots of CO2. Smells a lot like flavored seltzer, lighting up the nose. Not recognizable as pomegranate or raspberry but fruity in nature.

Tastes like flavored seltzer, and mildly flavored at that. Literally like those zero calorie, zero grams of fat seltzers that all all fizz and a little bit of flavor. It's hard to say this would be recognizable as beer. I have never had the straight Mich Ultra. so I don't even know if that tastes like beer.

No feel to speak of unless you like bubbles.

Drinkable? How can you deny it? Drinkable as beer...NFW.
