I thought the phrase "beer flavored seltzer water" was a beer snob exaggeration until I tried Michelob Ultra. It indeed tastes like seltzer water with a light beer flavoring, which is in no way an exaggeration. I don't even know what to write about; there's barely any taste to the beer whatsoever. The aftertaste is bready. That's about it. I'll have this again when I run out of water.

This wasn't the worst beer I've ever had because it isn't a beer. What? not a beer? But it has all the esential beer ingredients, like water, carbonation, and a bottle with a label.

The beer poored a wonderful color between the ground and the sky in kid's pictures. The smell? I never caught the smell. My olfactory glands aren't sensetive enough. What's left? Taste? It tasted like seltzer mixed with light beer. At least its better than seltzer though.

Why was I drinking this? My uncle insisted. I think I finished the bottle because it was empty, but my stomach didn't believe it.
