Yellow, clear, fizzy, with a slight head. The aroma is like a lime soda, not a beer. The taste is moderately dry, very fruity, and not much in the way of malt or hops. It's much more of a fruit drink than a beer.

This is more than what Michael Jackson called a gulp of wet air. It is wet air with lime & "something" else flavoring. An airhead brew.

On a hot day, when the beer is really cold, it tastes and feels great. It is a very light beer but the lime is very present and refreshing. As for the cactus aspect, ?????? Nothing craft or complex about it but highly palatable.

For a light beer this is really a pretty decent beer. I see a lot of low ratings by the beer snobs. That shouldn't detour you from trying this beer. Just because it doesn't taste like you have a mouthful of ear wax doesn't mean it is not a good beer. There are other defining characteristics besides tasting like a bitter bottle of crap. This is a great summer beer. Great for drinking on a hot day. Nice smooth finish and the lime is pretty decent for a bottle that is mixed with the lime ahead of time. Definitely a better taste than the Bud Light Lime. I really think Michelob Ultra has found a great niche in the market with their whole line of beers. There are not many great tasting light beers out there. Michelob is one of the exceptions.

Pours the color of urine with no lacing. Artificial like flavor makes it taste like sprite and beer. Good beer for hot days. Gives a decent buzz after consuming several. Not much beer belly bloat is a plus to it. I'll stick with bud light lime on the artificial beers. Fake beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass, I have no reason why!
Aroma- smells of artificial lime
Appearance- Looks like urine.
Taste- Better than urine. . .that's not really a compliment
Overall- why bother, it is an artificial beer that might be OK on a hot summer day. But it is way to fake for me and not that great tasting

Eh, drinkable, but not what I would classify as pleasant. Like a bud light lime, but with another off bit of flavor in there that I would assume is the Cactus part of it.

I don't care for Bud Light Lime, why do I need an 'fancified' version of that?

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
