2006 bottle sampled blind on 3/10/06, generously provided by Muzzlehatch. Thanks Barry, how can I possibly repay you for this?
White head dissipating quickly atop a caramel-amber body. Clear, filtered, highly carbonated, no lacing. The nose smells of malt, plenty of barley-like graininess. Light dough, fairly dry, with a seltzer-water/carbonic dryness to it. No hop apparency that I could find, but nor did I find any DMS in the aroma. Which is odd because the flavor is almost undrinkable on account of it. Grainy, dry and almond-skin like astringency, with salty seltzer water turning in to seared sourdough and just too much acrid, spoiled veggies. Growing more sour as it warms, stale and not wholesome tasting. No alcohol apparency, but I am not able to finish half a 12oz bottle. No real texture to speak of, just overcarbonation and a fully dried out, papery/watery feel to it.

Copper colored with some slight bready malt and hop aromas. The flavors were not well defined, consisting of some corn flakey malts and subdued hops. Light to medium palate, and not terribly complex or balanced.

12 oz bottle: Pours a nice copper color with a fizzy almost non existant head. Some carbonation remains throughout. Aroma is nearly non exsitant as well. The flavor isn’t too bad. Its like the regular Utlra with a faint hint of malt somewhere in there.

I had to try it. Faint malt cereal taste. Strictly for those looking for a low calorie buzz or to wash down some spicy food. A bit of a unpleasant metallic aftertaste.

Exactly like the regular ultra, but darker. Well, maybe there is just a little more bread notes, or maybe my mind is playing tricks on me because it is just darker in color. Anyway, just a poor excuse for an amber beer.

Bottle, poured a faint copper fizzy white head the vanished quickly. For some reason this sounded good to me, but it tasted like every other Michelob product, just a different color. It had the exact same sour taste and fizzy mouthfeel. Definitely not worth the premium price I paid for it.

On tap at a local bar. The body was light copper with a foamy white head. The aroma was grainy like a breakfast cereal. There was also a little soap and cheap white bread crust. The taste was very light white bread with some hints of grass. This is very light, nothng offensive, just bland.

OK, I’m an addict beer rater when I buy this just to rate it. But it surprisingly wasn’t that bad. It has a true amber color with moderate activity and a big but very quickly subsiding head. It has a bit of the corn-starchiness standard to big macros, but it’s relatively smooth and passable. Best thing I can say: not disgusting.

This wasn’t too bad to drink for an extremely light beer. For having in quantity and for a decent price, this beer would be okay.

was out with some friends and gave this a try. certainly darker than most BMC products, with a faint aroma and flavor of caramel malts. pretty thin though. first thing I did when I got home was go to the refrigerator and grab a STOUT!
