Iím honestly going to cut and paste what I wrote as a review for the original ultra. Sorry, but this is honestly the same thing as the regular ultra but with some caramel coloring. Here you go: "Nothing special about this one (should I have thought differently?). Pale golden color. Watered down AB aroma. Taste is pretty much the same. One less beer to rate." - Rob H

Wet, sweaty sock aroma. Pours a very clear, very, very, very light mahogany color with white head. Taste is water with some (very little) caramel malts. Palate is thin, and that is very kind. Why didnít I choose the Diet Coke, instead? Overall, I drank this after 2 Hopslam. Just wanted to see how bad it really was as it was left by some guests. Wow! Really, really bad beer, if you want to call it that. Just really, really bad. But I will finish, as I am a trooper!

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of watered-down malts, mostly caramel. Taste very lightly bitter. A thin hint of malt. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and no finish. Overall, itís pretty bad...but Iíve had worse.

Great beer if youíre stuck on a low carb diet. Was even better on draft but is longer available. Beautiful color, smooth taste with malty back end. Cheers.

I believe that the reason Michelob Amber Ultra, has been rated so low, is that people mistake it with its over the top cousin, Michelob Ultra. There could not be two more different beers in the "domestic light beer universe"! Iíve read some member comments and they have to be talking about MU. MU...should be PU. MAU is absolutely the best domestic light beer there is. I will have to give a shout out to Sam Adams light, in respectable second place, in my book. More rant about MU, on its page!

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with some white head and a soda like carbonation. Nose is similar to lemonade. Body is thin and watery. Taste includes some sweetness followed by an abrupt dryness. Nice sinkhole beer.

Malt spice and skunky in aroma. The flavor is much the same and rather thin in body. Not exceptional, not nasty though.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-nut color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was faintly dry and nutty with a tangy undertone. The flavor was dry, nutty and dusty. A tangy off citrus presence came out underneath. The finish was short, dry, nutty and a bit off. Light and watery body. Poor effort.

355mL at a tailgate for the FSU Miami game. Thanks crew! Pours a clear light amber with a miniscule suddy white head. No real formation. Nose is absent completely. Taste is watery with small sugar almost impossible to distinguish from Bud Light. Big carbonation. Refreshing at least. Better just drink water and then take a shot of vodka if you are trying to watch calories at the same time as getting drunk.
