1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2005 After drinking and writing notes on 24 beers (hit up the Sly Fox then Victory then the Philly Gathering), what better way than to end it with this? Very weak aromas and tastes. Lightly sweet. Watery body.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
One of the regulars at my local watering hole works for a Budweiser distributor. He was given a free six pack and brought it down the bar for light beer drinkers to sample. Two weeks later there was still two bottles left. Nobody wanted to try it. Not even for free. Popping the cap the beer gave off the aroma of a wet rag. Slight lacing of the glass during the sample. Chemical taste and a sweet finish. I’d rather have a cider or even a B to the E over Bud Select.

Poured yellow with a decent head.
Aroma and flavor of corn with a metalic taste on the palate.
Average beer with not much flavor.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I guess Michelob Ultra’s appeal is dying. But then again I thought the Atkins low carb fad was losing steam as well. Well it the midst of it all here comes this. I thought Bud Light was THIS. Well on to the beer. Trasparent yellow color with a cooked corn smell. It has no flavor whatsoever. It tastes like water. Maybe a little better than bud light, maybe?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Average is about the best word I can use to describe this beer. I am such a sucker for new beers and when I saw it on sale I had to buy it. The flavor is crisp & leaves little or no after-taste. If Budweiser is going to market this as a Low-Carb Beer they may have nailed it as it is better than any other. I would order this beer at a bar as it is easy to drink & does have a smooth flavor.

What’s a day without a little AB bashing. I walked into the Class VI store on base Friday and the manager said, "I’ve got a new one...it’s great...better than Miller or Coors lite..". Ok, I think I’d be impressed. My buddy was so he bought a sixer. So how does the new AB lager fair.......surprise!!---it stinks. Good Lord folks, some people just don’t get it. How could anyone who taste tested this for AB prior to its release say it was anything other than bland, listless, and otherwise poor? I know by definition you don’t have to have hops to make beer, but gee whiz they could’ve thrown in a little. What a sad state the King of Beers has sunk to....and I don’t mean Mizzou.

0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I just couldn’t bear to drink a whole bottle of this, so I ordered one and split it with my friend Jeff (okay, maybe I should now start referring to him as my EX-friend!). Look at the bottle and marketing they use - all of the dark brown colors, it came as quite a surprise (well maybe not) that this poured into our glasses a pale pale pale yellow, no head, no lacing. Aroma is cereal and very light. Body - very fizzy - full of tiny little prickly bubbles. Despite the lack of taste and body, iit managed to leave a sticky chemical film on my tongue. Oh, and now I see that this is their lo-carb beer - what a waste of a pretty brown bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 The add campaign for Bud Light being "Low Carb" must have been failing, but doesn’t AB get the profits from Mich Ultra anyways? I guess they wanted a little bit more.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 From a bottle. The aroma is corn some light white bread. The taste is metallic with light and watered down cornflakes. Finishes sweet. I had this again on tap. Same taste, but I got really tired of it after a few glasses. Not really any better than the standard corn and rice affair.
