The taste is very much the same bland experience that defines Michelob Ultra, except with Amber there is a bit of a darker and sweeter flavor subtly behind the "trademark" Michelob taste. This makes for a slightly fuller tasting beer.

I would not suggest drinking this unless there were no other options available. Not the worst beer in the world, but not good.

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.

Michelob Ultra Amber
12 oz bottle
Recent bottling, wolfed down 07/06
Medium pour in a mug

Poured amber with a rapidly faind 1/2 inch head.

Smelt of a trace of fruity malt

Taste was light and shortlived upfront sweet berrymaltiness drying off quickly in an ending with an effervesscent metallic taste. Mouthfeel was light and bubbly.

Overall, it may wake up Michelob Ultra drinkers taste buds, but not many othersÂ’.

i guess if you want to get a buzz, and you must drink "beer" to do it, and this is the only beer available then OK, drink it up. My son had a sip and suggested that it was the "idea of the taste of beer, with fizzy water added and left in the frig. That about summed it up for me.

Not even good for a knock back after mowing the lawn on a hot summers afternoon. Does this mean I'll have to pour the rest of the 12 pack down the drain. #$@%
