EEEKS!

This was BEER?

The only tip-off was the word 'Beer' on the label. Low carbs equals no taste, right?

I'm sure that Ultra serves the purpose for those drinkers who are restricting carb intake, (which is why I tried it in the first place), but the result was so unsatisfying that the carb investment in a much better-tasting brew would be worth considering.

Poured out a very pale yellow with little to no head. Taste and mouthfeel were closer to water than to any type of malted beverage. Very thin taste. Hops? Yeah, right... nowhere to be found.

If offered a choice between Ultra and a bottle of water, I'd choose the water every time.

My advice? Stay away, unless you carb watchers are desperate for a beer-flavored beverage.
