Very smooth. Very refreshing. Very easy drinking light beer. I really enjoyed this one. Goes down very smoothly. Will definitely pick this up again. Though I do wish the price point was a little lower. 7.69 is the cheapest I found a six pack around here. Cheers.

Marroon-ish hue and no real head to speak of. Smell and taste of yeast and some bitterness at the end. Very, very carbonated and almost drinks like a beer-flavored La Croix. It’s equally inoffensive and unremarkable for a light beer. If you’re maintaining a low-calorie diet I guess this one could make a lot of sense (3.2 carbohydrates, 95 calories, 4%ABV). It’s better than Bud Light.

For a low carb option...this isn't bad.

12oz bottle bb 2/1/18 poured into a vintage Michelob pils glass at fridge temp 4% ABV, 3.2 carbs, 95 calories. The beer pours bright very light amber with instantly gone off white head. Zero retention, zero lacing. The aroma is faintly beery mostly from yeast I suppose. The flavor is a dash of caramel malt applied to the most nuetral base beer ever. The mouthfeel is very thin bodied, highly carbonated, and very dry in the finish. There is a hint of soapy, oily texture in the aftertaste. Overall, good (for an ultra light beer).

Smooth drinking. Sweet taste and a bit creamy.

Deep red gold color with only the briefest appearance of a white cap that quickly goes away.

Definite hit of caramel in the aroma with a touch of hop spice.

Tastes like Yuengling Light without the hops. The sweet caramel in the nose appears dryer on the palate. Entry is light caramel cloaked in bubley carbonation. Hops don't really show at all except in the aroma. The upside is a complete lack of bitterness or harshness in the flavor, finish or aftertaste.

I will call the body medium but I believe that's in part due to the high carbonation giving a mouth filling sensation.

Overall an improvement I think over the other Mich Ultra stablemates. It simply has more of everything in the way of appearance and flavor while staying within the limited boundaries of low carb/low calorie/low alcohol. Now, I understand the attraction for these things. Using walking as a means of daily exercise I know how much effort it takes to burn off 100 calories but, taking all things into consideration, I'd rather have a full strength Yuengling and walk a little further.

This stuff looks like light brown carbonated water, smells faintly of beer and tastes like stale water with a mild alkaline bite. Has the mouth feel of Perrier. I was offered this at a friend's house. He is not my friend anymore. This is a chick beer for chicks that wanna be beer drinkers. If this were the only beer in the world I would drink wine. Cannot recommend.
