25 FL. OZ. can
Served in an imperial nonic pint glass

This beer pours straw colored and clear. it is topped with an inch of white head that leaves spotty lacing.

Light lime and fruit aroma.

Light lime flavor. At least this version of ultra has some flavor.

Thin bodied with a dry mouthfeel

Michelob Ultra is one of the worst abominations ever labeled as beer. At least this has a little flavor.

Pours a clear barely golden yellow with a head that is like champagne and disappeared fast. Smell is lime,grains,some type of fruit(probably prickly pear) Taste is delivered clean and neat with a proportionate amount of the adjuncts which are discernible by the individual fruit. Again feels well put together,crisp,refreshing,well carbonated. This beer, being organic would not be possible without the huge buying power of InBev Overall for a light lager with adjuncts I will rate accordingly to the style. This newer version says LIME & PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS. It is also 100% organic-And the ABV is 4.0 instead of 4.2

Purchased as a six-pack of bottles from Publix for $8.99. Poured into a pils glass. Posting this review from some notes I wrote down a couple of days ago, but only now could post to BA.

L - Extremely pale yellow with no head and minimal lacing.
S - Smells of corn flakes and faint lime. Almost sweet.
T - Lime is pretty upfront, followed by an almost artificial prickly pear. Slight hint of dragonfruit and light hay.
F - Lightly carbonated and very light body. A step above La Croix. Refreshing.
O - I don't hate this beer, but I find it a bit boring - mostly due to the very light body, unable to retain a lot of flavor. If it wasn't a light beer, I feel like this would be a home run for the Michelob lineup. Glad to have finally tried it, though.

Amazing beer, but in a very specific way. Very refreshing, though perhaps not the highest quality beer on the market. You're not going to impress your boss, but if you're having a nice afternoon kick-back, or even a summertime party, this is a really good option.

Solid American “light lager” with added “fruit” i.e.the prickly pear. I enjoyed this and suggest anyone disregard any rating that suggests it’s not “real beer”.

We at the 1009 are always on the lookout for new lime experiences. Infusions have been on the back burner for quite some time since we first spotted it in early spring. The time was just not right. Finally, we needed something light at the beech and boy oh boy was this light. It was practically water. We plopped a lime wedge in the glass to accentuate that citrus bight. Extremely deletable but sort of resembled a club soda with lime that would come out of the beverage dispenser gun at an Applebees.

Pale straw colored beer with a small, rapidly disappearing white head.
Aroma of sweet malt with a bit of lime.
Sweet taste, some lime. No cactus.
Thin and watery.

Somewhat enjoyable yet doesn't remind me of Beer.
First and foremost this Tastes good However, It lacks in the Beer department for me. I gave the looks highest marks because the Green 24oz Can was very attractive. At the store, I thought it was cheap enough to give it a try. for $2.88 what does it hurt to try something new? I didn't bother pouring it. Iv seen it in clear bottles so yeah, what is there to expect? Moving on to smell. Aroma is tropical. Bright airy refreshing. Lime hits you with that tangy Freshness and the addition of the Prickly pear adds a tropical Grapefruit/ Guava note. Now for flavor the very first note I get is american Lager Malt that last only a second, it then turns strait to tropical Island Flavor. Very bright and refreshing, easy going and light. Lime comes through along with a backbone of the prickly pear. Reminds me of Guava. Tangy fruity flavor throat the beverage with the finish being more like beer. Feel is lost. too watery for what it is. I wish it had more bite. seltzer-ish on the pallet, no carbonation burn to me. Overall, This is a fairly good tasting Beverage. It might be Beer but lacks some good beer qualities. I give it high marks on most every category based from what the Beer is on its own. A light Lager with added flavor. Great entry into Beer for people that dont want to taste real beer.

Sixer of clear bottles nabbed at a Walmart in Chalmette, LA.

Has notes of lime and pear as advertised, and it doesn't taste artificial or syrupy. Very drinkable without being watery.

I find it surprisingly well balanced and enjoyable for a low calorie light lager, to be honest.

Clear sparkling pale gold with a fizzy head that dies off in an instant, much quicker than other Michelobs.

This has a watery light fluid body that contains lightly tart lime candy, but faintly so, with no underlying beer flavor. This tingly semi-dry beer has an artificial sort of feel that makes your palate go lame, with accents of lemon tea.

I drank it from a huge ass can, 25oz. For what it is, it isn’t bad. It’s a little weak tasting but you get a lime hit up front and, what I imagine cactus flavor would be. These were 2 for $5 at the local convenience store so not bad. I figure they’re a little better than some econo brew or malt liquor. They are very refreshing as well.
