16oz draft pour into a pint glass shows a bright clear yellow body and floats no thing save an edge-hugging ring.
Aroma is missing.
Taste is nothing but a slight carbonation metal.
Feel is crisp, clean, and leaves no aftertaste.
Not offensive in any way, just wet and cold.

I hate Michelob Ultra it's so bad! It's like beer flavored water was watered down! HA!
Everyone look how cool I am! I'm hating things that other people are bashing! And, uh.... Nickelback sucks! Only people at Nickelback concerts drink Michelob Ultra!
Am I cool now, please someone tell me I'm cool....

My personal favo(u)rite. The perfect light beer. A good substitute for water.

I drink this while working out, climbing mountains, running marathons, scuba diving in the south pacific, racing my yacht, winning the tour de france, putting decals on my WRX, fly fishing in Mongolia, paragliding from the top of Mt Everest, trading stocks on the NYSE, telling you I graduated from the University of Michigan, and numerous other elite activities.

Look - Super pale clear light gold in color. No head or lacing from the pour.
Smell - Slightly metallic, hint of rice
Taste - Vague white rice, seltzer water. No bitterness or sweetness.
Feel - Thin and watery, Would benefit from more carbonation.

Overall - The only plus is that it isn't offensive.
