2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Saw this in a light beer "shootout", in a another mag. It won over Sam Adams, Becks, Amstel, and Heinie light. So, figured Iíd give it a shot.
Poured from bottle, light amber, average head.
Aroma: Not much, typical macro grainy.
Taste: Was ready to bolt away from it, but, actually kinda liked it. Like a light bock beer. Almost. Macro-grains were detected, and even a bit of a toasted malt. Left my mouth dry, but, not offensive.
Almost a little confused when I took notes for the review. I kinda liked it, but kinda didnít like it..if thats possible. Might try it this summer, out on a lawnchair, in the sun.

Originally rated on 5/28/08. Another reminder of why i dont buy light beer. it looked promising enough with a nice looking amber body, but there wasnt really any aroma to speak of, and no taste either. However it wasnt as bad as other light beers

Please keep in mind that this Michelod Ultra AMBER is an ultra light beer such as Bush light, Miller lite, Miller 64, Natural light and also itís sibling Michelob Ultra. This beer has only 95 calories and only 3.2 carbs, great if youíre diabetic or just watching carbs and want to enjoy a good tasting every now and then. As far as I am concerned it tastes far superior than any of the other beers I mentioned before and most other beers in itís category. The only other beer that I would consider on par on taste is Sam Adams light but it also has more calories and carbs. So if youíre looking for a light beer with some flavor give the Ultra Amber a try itís a great beer

Very little Amber taste. Still a very light watery beer.

bottled - drinkable for what it is. A good beer for an all-nighter or a party. Also a good alternative to Miller Lite and it has more flavor than regular Michelob Ultra.

A light amber beer. Sort of like the regular Michelob Ultra with a touch of caramel for sweetness. Still a little bitter though. Not the smoothest amber out there. Probably wonít be getting this again but glad I had the opportunity to try. Would rather have a regular Michelob Ultra or and Amber Bock instead.

Michelob Ultra Amber has a medium, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and a few lacing streaks left behind on the glass. The aroma is weak, but mild, sweet roastiness and faint grain can be detected. Taste is also thin, but generalized grain, a ghost of caramel, and the ever so slightest breath of hop bitterness is present. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Michelob Ultra Amber finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. Itís pretty dull. RJT

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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."

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
