Best American low carb beer Iíve found, although way too light and watered down to compare with real beers. If strict diet Iíll drink it, otherwise better beers for me.

chinchill (2146) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Fresh 12oz bottle. Pale light-medium amber, light for an amber but then this is a light beer. Large fizzy head soon reduces to a ring. Smells like a mix of hops and dirt. To be fair it does smell like some English hops, but not appealing. The flavor is better but, of course, very light and mild. ... make that very, very light. Exceptionally light and watery body. Crisp, medium carbonation.

"the "malty, toasted aroma" the brewer describes is there, i suppose, just really hard to find. for what it is, it can be enjoyed, but not if youíre expecting much. A touch darker and maltier than Ultra, but about on the same level...maybe a tad better."

served in a bottle, weak aroma that was mostly non-descript. the brew did have a slight aroma of hoppiness, This beer is best enjoyed when purely looking for a thirst quencher and not for a beer experience.

b3shine (5854) - Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of caramel and mild bread. Tastes like it smells, but blander. Average on the palate. Okay...by Ultra standards.

ElCapitan22 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours a light amber color with a slightly sweet and malty flavor. Next to no lacing....but not a terrible beer. Of the low carb beers, michelob remains consistently better than most.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Ė The beer pours a light amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The fizzy head fades almost instantly leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The aroma of the beer is light overall with it consisting of a mix of caramel with notes of graininess. Along with these smells is a faint whiff of a grassy smell and a bit of fruit. Taste Ė The taste begins with a very watery flavor with just a hint of a grain and roasted malt. Upfront there is very little sweetness, but as the taste advances a lighter corn sweetness with a hint of caramel comes to the tongue. A very light herbal flavor and some tastes of paper come to the tongue at the very end of the taste, leaving a rather thin and weak amber flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is super thin with a carbonation level that is average. While the thin body is quite expected, a bit higher of carbonation would have been more fitting for the style, creating a more refreshing feel overall. Overall Ė Donít expect too much here. But really should you really be expecting tons with a ďultraĒ low cal beer?

It has a medium amber color with good clarity and a thin white head. The head fades to just a small ring of bubbles around the glass and it leaves very little lace on the glass. The aroma has a light clean malty character with some light alcohol esters. It has a light bready malt with a slight sweetness. The hops are very neutral and offer very little to the overall flavor. Its palate is light with smooth watery texture and mild fizzy carbonation. Its finish is light and clean. Overall it has a simple clean flavor with a light body thatís easy drinking.

Aw man, do I really have to say something on this. Fine, though Iím not thrilled, here goes. It was poured in a pint glass for the three times Iíve had it. The appearance was actually a fairly decent looking amber color with a ton of carbonation rising into the white foamy head. The head must have died within a good twenty seconds. There wasnít any lacing whatsoever. The smell had some cooked caramel malts and that was about it. The taste was sweet and once again that was about it, no aftertaste and no finish. The palate, it sat pretty light and actually showed a decent sessionable quality about it. Overall, there was nothing that even remotely thrilled me about this beer. Though sessionable and it didnít have anything offensive about it on the palate, well, for the most part, its just not something Iíd seek again.

Had this after running a half-marathon. They were giving it out free. Really just water with some color and carbs added.

Water in a bottle with some food coloring. I hate dieting and drinking this crap!
