out of the lost notebook, reviewed from notes.

pours out a pale amber with a light orange tin but no head at all and loads of carbonation fizzing up towards the top. aroma is soo fake, just over the top orange koolai like smell with no real depth to it. its like they took a flavorless pale lager and dumped candy or crystal light mix in it, not sure what was up with this whole set of beers but they were all just wrong. light finish with no aftertaste and just, i dont know nothing there for me.

overall not a good beer, not even sure it is a beer.

Wow! I didn't realize there could be a beer that tasted worse than Corona.

A- Light, watery, pale yellow with lots of bubbles, thin white head that immediately flees, and no lace.

S- Like sour grapefruit in tonic water. It smells like my mom's diet. hint of artificial orange.

T- Tonic water soured by bitter grapefruit and orange peel.

M- Completely over the top on carbonation. This is like bad, unsweetened soda!

D- I poured it out.

Poured from 12oz bottle.

A- Pours a very pale yellow color. One finger head jumps up and dies down almost as soon as it got there. No lacing in the glass.

S- This smells very artifical. Very much like well orange citrus and grapefruit style notes in the ending. Nothing really else....the alcohol is noticable but the beer aspect seems to be lost in the nose of this.

T- Wine cooler is what comes to my mind when I taste this one. No real beer quality taste wise. Some of the other Michelob Ultra beers at least had a hint of beer to it. This is just orange and grapefruit flavored water. Kind of a mess if you ask me.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is prickly high. Very watery in the mouth. Artifical fruit flavor is left throughout the beer into the aftertaste. Fizzy feeling on the palate.

D- This is a easy drinker but the taste I just can't get over. I don't know maybe this kind of beer was just not meant for me. I just guess this means more for others.

Found this at a discount food store in the singles section.
My first impression is that it's a refreshing drink with a very slight alky kick.
Kind of like a weak wine spritzer.
This stuff would be ideal for someone who doesn't like beer, but wants to have a slightly alcoholic drink to sip on.
What we have here is a "ladies' drink" that my wife might like.
It really doesn't fit into any conventional beer style, so I'm rating it for it's drinkability as a beverage in general.

Stuck at a party with nothing else to drink but a Michelob Ultra Sampler and the first thing i thought of was that i've never reviewed these beers before. Score!

Third in my Ultra vertical after the lime and pomegranate.

Fizzy yellowy brown in color. Smell is a somewhat large whiff of real orange and grapefruit (ie citrusy without being cloyingly sweet or sour). Taste is a powerful punch of authentic orange and bitter grapefruit, minimal sweetness and notes of grain. Once again, if not ice cold its almost unbearable. The best of the fruity bunch, and thats not saying much.

This one was in the frig and I've never reviewed, I actually bought a sixer for my wife, she likes it, so lets give it a whirl. In the bottle it smells like orange, actually more like mandarin or really like clementine. Poured into a glass, really no need as it is in a clear bottle, but to see the head, which is good but gone quickly. Color is a very pale yellow. Taste is pretty much the same as the smell, orange and orange, like orange sweet tarts mostly, sweet but tart. No bitterness at all. This appears to be strictly a chick beer, along the line of a wine cooler. The only time I would return to drink this is in 98 degrees and 90% humidity, where it may be a good refresher. Otherwise I'll steer clear.

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

Appearance - a light gold pour into the only vessels in the Pigeon Forge vacation cabin - melmac plastic cups. At least they're see-through. Two fingers of white foam. Pretty nice for a light brew.

Aroma - citrusy and grapefruit. Pleasant but alcopopish. Reminds me of Bert Grant's mandarin orange hefe.

Taste - all orange and grapefruit, no beer presence. Wine cooler stuff, but it's not overly syrupy or gross. I easily tossed back a few with pizza, though the missus didn't care much for 'em.

Mouthfeel - thin and on the gassy side.

Drinkability - good for a night's posterity, but nothing I need to re-visit.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: Poured from a clear 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Label is tan with orange metallic high lights. Described as a "light beer with natural flavor." No clear freshness date, but there is a code of 09054 on the neck label.

Appearance: Pours with just under two fingers of pure white head. This settles to an incomplete coating of foam. Plenty of activity. The beer itself is yellow gold and perfectly clear. No sediment remains in the bottle.

Smell: Strong notes of orange. Really smells like Orange Crush to me. Maybe a slight hint of slightly sweet malt and adjuncts.

Taste: Like a milder version of an orange soda. No malt or hops flavor whatsoever.

Mouthfeel: Very high carbonation level, exactly like a soda. Body is okay.

Drinkability: Not sure where I stand on this one. Look, it is not supposed to be Kate the Great. But then again, it tastes just like orange soda. I imagine this thing is intended to compete with so called alco-pops. Is it good? Sure. Will I ever drink it again? No. If I want a refreshing, fruity drink, I will have a fruit soda or fruit juice.
