Pours light with fizzy slight head. Crisp and light lager “beer” at only 4.2% ABV. Bottomless brew at Happy Face Simi Valley music festival- better than sparkling water? Bottoms up - cheers!

Look is pale straw which I expect with a super light beer. Smell of sweet corn mash. Drank a number of these to be able to accept the taste. Very light watery feel. Honestly I drink more of this than regular beer because calories and carbs. I can think of worse beers to drink.

I was out with friends and I'd already enjoyed my first beer by the time dinner arrived, so I ordered an Ultra for my second since several others at the table had ordered this. The best way I can describe this is beer flavored White Claw. I'm not sure why so many people drank 2 or 3 of these with dinner. I'd much rather sip a good beer than down multiple of these.

Unlike some other pretentious beer snobs I'll give this a fair rating. Light lagers are the backbone of the common beer drinker. Nothing beats the refreshing cold crisp taste of a light beer on a hot summer day golfing. When I'm not drinking “real” beers, my go to crusher is Mic Ultra.

Overpriced for a domestic light, light beer. Good for hot days though. This beer don’t look right in a manly man’s hand or butch lesbians. The bottles maybe but not the slim line cans.

Easy to drink, Extremely Light, almost no flavor profile, and yet i have to say amongst the other american mass produced light beers this one is at the top of my list

Organic Michelob Ultra Gold is my favorite beer, but Michelob Ultra is just okay and a very different product, despite the similar name. It tastes "dirtier" than Gold and has GMOs. I am a sucker for extra light, ice-cold lagers, and the 4.2 alcohol and 2.6 carbs are pretty cool for a mainstream beer. I avoid GMOs at all costs, and my Instacart shopper got this by mistake, and it's the only reason I'm reviewing it. Stick with Michelob Ultra Gold if you appreciate a very light, athlete-friendly lager, and skip this beer.

Not undrinkable if it’s cold enough. Pretty much crap when it’s not.
