Got a single of this just because...

Pours out the same as it looks in the bottle, straw color with a fizzy white head that drops to a ring around the glass.

Smell. Has a sugary sweetness, seems similar to a smirnoff ice. there is a lime citrus to it, but it is more of an contribute to the sweet, fizzy-like soda aroma.

Taste. Flavor is sweet and tart. lime comes out in the tartness, but there is no bitterness, so the sweet flavors come out similar to a sprite flavor or a very light smirnoff ice (hate to reference it again).

Mouthfeel. Initially the body is very light with lots of carbonation and reminds me of club soda. But as the flavor comes out so does the beer's body. but it still isnt much, as it's very light...which seems to be the target in a michelob ultra beer.

Overall, I dont know why i put so much effort in reviewing this beer. It's a beer that not supposed to taste like a beer, so if you like it, chances are you're better off with just sticking to the smirnoff and mike hard lemonade...or now miller chill and bl lime...i'd rather a chill or bl lime right now, but it is very subjective based on this beer. Cuz as a liquid, i find it drinkable, but as a beer, I find it on the bottom of the lime infuzed beers.

Sampling right now on 2/7/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours clear golden-yellow with no head to speak of at all as well as no lacing. LOTS of bubbles due to high carbonation. The aroma is of grains and lime. The taste is the same but on the 'watered-down' side as would be excepted. Actually goes down easy with no bitter aftertaste. I liked this one BETTER than the regular Mick Ultra I had several months ago. Probably good for a hot summer's day.

Roommate picked this up on sale for $0.50 a bottle.

A - Golden color and rather effervescent.

S - Smells like imitation lime

T - Imagine combining michelob ultra or any other light lager with a lime snow cone. I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't lime. I'm not really sure why cactus is in the name because I certainly don't taste any.

M - Like any other light lager, it is light and bubbly.

O - If you are going to consume a product that is this fake and synthesized I feel like you should just go with a malt beverage.

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

A-very clear pale with a white head that fades quickly
S-sweet grain with a citrus lime aroma coming in strong
T-lime was that taste with the sweet grain, and a crisp taste
M-light body with high carbonation
O-Bud light lime was better, but it might have something to do with me knowing this beer did not use real limes to flavor it.

My brother grabbed this as part of a mix-six.

Poured from a 12 oz twist-cap bottle into my tulip (lolz)

A = pissy yellowish green color, fizzy like soda.

S = fake lemon-lime scent, almost like Gatorade; can't detect malts or hops

T = tastes like somebody steeped a bunch of gummy worms in club soda, no hop bitterness

M = fizzy and thin, typical AAL mouthfeel

O = a horrible beer, do not recommend at all
