After three days of drinking, I thought Monday Night Football, I should have something lite. This isn't too bad. It is crisp and smooth. The smell is ok, not too impressive, but not bad. Served ice cold, this is good for low carb "diet beer". The colour is real lite, like a rolling rock.But overall I did enjoy this. I won't drink it all the time, but I will go back..
One more thing, the packaging, the bottle ..etc.. definately make you at least want to try it..
Happy Drinking Folks!

A - Watered down straw color. Pours like a ginger ale; lots of head and carbonation, then nothing.

S - Aroma is a a little sour. Hints of apple and corn.

T - Very watery. The back end even tastes a bit sour. Leaves an almost oily residue behind. Almost no flavor at all.

M - After the first few sips, this beer goes completwly flat. And since its flavor is watery to begin with, the feel is no different.

O - If you are actually drinking this beer while dieting, I'm sure it would be fine for you, but if you are looking for a tastey sessionable light lager, this is something very worthy of a session, but very much lacking in the flavor department.

As they say - it is what it is - a low calorie light lager. I thought a lot of the calories in beer were from the alcohol - but this beer will make you think the calories were in the flavor - because this beer has no taste. Way too much carbonation and little substance. Don't reach for this beer unless you are on a diet - even then you may just want to have water instead.

You can't get much lighter then a Mic Ultra. The color is quite clear and the foam fades away quite quickly. The smell and taste are not too spectacular/there isn't much of either. I would take a Bud Light over this however Ultras or not bad on a hot summer day. They don't fill you up or weigh you down. If you ever get that "uggh, I just drank a fat beer" feeling, you won't get that here. It goes down and feels like water in your belly.

A: Medium gold that kind of glows. Drop of orange. Nice looking.

S: Beer smell...nothing else.

T: One of the smoothest and most crisp beers. The only problem is that it is very very watery. You dont get the crappy adjunct taste like in BMC's. But you also dont get much else. Most drinkable beer out there though. It's like water, but not bad. Extremely non=offensive.

M: Wet and fizzy. Very very crisp and smooth.

O: Very cheap and light beer with some flavor. I like it.

I got a 24 oz can of this ultra at 711. I have never had it before.

The appearance is rather poor. It has no head and it is a faint yellow color. The smell is that of burnt corn. The beer tastes like burnt corn also. It feels like soda water in the mouth. With that said it is easy to drink but I don't see the point since it tastes terrible.

Avoid this beer at all costs. It's really disgusting. And I have no idea why people buy it since it's not even cheap.
