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

Michelob Ultra Fruit Lime Cactus - Anheuser-Busch. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head fizzes like lemon lime pop, no lacing, and a pale clear golden swill of a body.

Smells like flavored sparkling water :/

Tastes like sparkling water, but a little sharply on the flavor. How in the Hell is this any derivation of beer AT ALL?

Mouthfeel is that of carbonated water.

Overall a 2.25 for Michelob Ultra Fruit Lime Cactus - Anheuser-Busch. I'll never purchase this flavored water again. I mean, I give every brew its day, terrible to orgasm-in-the-mouth, so this had its day. But, like I said, never again.

Michelob Ultra Fruit Lime Cactus brewed by Anheuser-Busch, with an ABV of 4.2% This brew pours out a nice light amber color with a small white head. The smell is crisp with lime and citrus. You pick up on minor grans in this brew. Now for the taste; it is lime with little to no grains at the end. Michelob Ultra Fruit Lime Cactus puts you in the mind of 7 up. The mouthfeel is light with some lime. Overall I'm giving this brew a 3 out of 5. Not the worst brew I've had but not the best. There is not much to this brew.

From notes on 9/6/2013

Nice fresh lime smell. Almost no color. Looks like a cider. Actually kind of tastes like a cheap cider. Overall a refreshing drink.
