pours a crystal clear, anemic yellow straw with a small head that poofs. nose; meddling yeast, & extremely faint lemon. taste; light yeast, & very light citrus. not much else. medium carbonation & very light mouthfeel. nothing offensive about this beer, but it's only a step away from just drinking carbonated water. the big sell is that it's only 95 calories, but why not just grab a la croix for 0 calories?

A: The beer is clear and very light yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head white head that eventually completely faded away.
S: There are light aromas of adjunct malts in the nose-corn stands out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has light flavors of rice adjunct malts. The slightest hints of bitterness are also detectable.
M: It feels rather light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: While this beer is very easy to drink, it tastes more like water with notes of rice and hints of hops.

Michelob ultra's Biggest competition is obviously Budweiser select. Both beers come in at right under 100 cal, and are intended to win over the weight-conscious crowd. I personally am trying to drop about 40 pounds, and so I tend to buy these watered-down diet adjunct beers on occasion. Michelob ultra is the best of these kinds of beers. It taste like a light beer, but it's an ultra light. Not great, but not horrible.

Ordered this from Applebee's, draft, 16 oz glass. Appearance is extremely light, pale straw colored yellow; clear as water and almost as light. Lots of bubbles continue to rise from the bottom to the surface; the head is almost non existant, no lacing but a soap like bubblineess. Smell is sweet corn and malts. Taste is sour and tart, light and watery, no discernible taste of hops or grains. I assume what I am tasting are the adjuncts; rice and corn. Mouthfeel is similar to soda water. This is a beer that you drink when you don't want to take any sort of enjoyment from the beer drinking experience, but then again no one drinks this for its taste. It's "diet" beer, but the low alcohol and crappy flavor nullify the fact that its lower calorie because you would have to drink several of these just to get a buzz, thereby equaling the calories you'd consume from drinking a quality beer. Basically It's what you drink when tap water isn't quite alcoholic enough for you.
