12oz stubby bottle - review from notes

I had a friend give me this one, thanks Janoy!! This is better than any other Michelob I've had, which isn't saying much, but this is decent. Like a very watered down brown ale, or a slightly watered down amber

it's aight

Pours a slightly darker yellow than the original Michelob, I wouldn't call it Amber. Has a Thin white head that leaves the glass quickly. Smells like the inside of a glass bottle with just the faintest amount of grains on the tail-end. Taste, follows the nose. The only reason I'm giving this beer a 2 on taste is because you know what you're getting into when you buy Ultra, you're looking for a lower calorie brew, Ultra's provide you with one. Light-bodied, high carbonation, smooth, extremely crushable...

Rates just a touch above halfway between below average and average. For a low calorie brew, it's drinkable. Light brown color with small head. Light smell of malt, which transfers to the taste, which is a bit watered down. Light mouthfeel and light malty aftertaste

Nothing wrong with this. Compared with other light beers it’s fine.

Look: Dull brown, no character, it is clear though.
Smell: Mineral water?
Taste: Mineral water, very little of anything. Not sure what the point of making an amber version that tastes the same as the regular ultra. Comical.
Overall: Skip it, just get the regular ultra if that’s what gets you off, this is just a gimmick.

FIrst. I see this beer was added back in 2006. Why have I never seen or heard of Ultra Amber until 2019? So this beer is a watery brown ale basically. Its taste is pleasant and nothing offputting at all. Easy to drink. I have no problems with this beer at all.

Better tasting than regular michelob ultra or some of the other shitty flavors it comes in. Better than pure gold. Very watered down amber beer. About the same mouthfeel as yuengling light. 95 calories is impressive. Definitely can slam back some of these. There better than some but worse than more. If that makes any sense.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 1/26/2016. Pours crystal clear deep golden amber, light orange color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of honey, caramel, roast, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Minimal fruity notes in the aromas. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pale/roast malts and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of honey, caramel, roast, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, honey, caramel, roast, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness, complexity, and balance of pale/roast malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with no fruity/yeasty notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a very good amber light lager. All around nice robustness, complexity, and balance of pale/roast malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Very clean pale/roast malt showcase, with nice earthy hop presence/balance for the style. Mild residual sweetness with crisp dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and outstanding style example. One of the best light lagers I have had.

3.2 carbs. 95 cals. 4% ABV. 12 fl oz. $6.99 USD per sixer.

I bought this because I was pleasantly surprised by Michelob Lager, but this compares unfavorably to that superior lager. This has some toasty amber malt notes but they're buried, leaving only an insipid one-two punch of 2-row barley and muted Noble hop grassiness to satiate.

Shallow and simple but certainly drinkable. Not a beer I'd want to revisit another sixer of, but there's no doubting it'd pair fine with pizza or spicy wings.

Low C (2.80) / AVERAGE
