1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a pale yellow straw color with quickly disappearing fizzy white head. Aroma is ginger ale and old potato. As much body as club soda and taste a bit of lime and paper sack, which is actually a touch better than it sounds. Basically drink it cold out of the bottle after a 2 hour bike ride and you’ll be more satisfied.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass, I have no reason why!
Aroma- smells of artificial lime
Appearance- Looks like urine.
Taste- Better than urine. . .that’s not really a compliment
Overall- why bother, it is an artificial beer that might be OK on a hot summer day. But it is way to fake for me and not that great tasting

"summer beer only...as with the other "ultra" fruit beers, i found the aroma refreshing, if a bit odd. the lime smelled and tasted natural...the cactus...i dunno. overall, it was a non-offensive light straw colored beer that tasted more like a wime cooler than a beer."

Smells like a citrusy urine. Lots of stale lime odor. Looks like piss with almost no head. Yellow. Very little flavor but what I do taste is bad - moldy limes and an awful aftertaste. I won’t be drinking this ever again.

Pour thanks to adnielsenratings. Pours a clear pale yellow; no head. Aroma is watery sweet citrus. Flavor is sweet, lime, pears? Unexciting but inoffensive

Bottle @ gmellison. Thanks Homer. Very light yellow appearance with a spritzy white head. Spree, sweet tart, lemon lime soda aroma. Fairly sweet. Watery. Lemon lime soda flavor. Lots of carbonation. Pretty chuggable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-24-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a straw color with a big fizzy white head. The head fades very fast to leave only a tiny amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a sweet fruit punch smell
Taste – The taste begins with flavors of a sweet corn and lime. These flavors are persistent throughout the whole of the taste and make up the bulk of the flavor profile. More toward the middle and end there is a sugary candy flavor that comes to the profile mixing with the rest to produce an almost wine cooler like flavor.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is very light with a carbonation level that is very effervescent. The body and high carbonation level are quite fitting for the brew making it very soda like and matching the flavors well.
Overall – Well not really my kind of brew. I guess if you feel like a diet soda with vodka, you may like this, but then again why even bother.

Bottle to pint. Looks subparagraph; a completely transparent lighter gold with white head that steadily dissipates quickly and entirely. Smells like a cheap adjunct with an artificial like presence. Tastes like it smells with what I assume is cactus? Average (at best) on the palate. Fail, but not as bad as its mean indicates.

This has 95 calories and 5.5 grams of carbohydrates per serving. That is its selling point, just FYI. If you want a beer w/ those specs, this is your guy. It tastes like an extremely light Lime-A-Rita which is to say it is like lime Kool Aid mixed w/ seltzer water. If this is an indication of what cactus tastes like in beer then cactus tastes like nothing because i’m not getting anything from it. There are worse Michelob Ultras but also better ones. This one is pretty middle of the road as far as that goes.

12 oz. bottle at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten. Pours a pale, clear gold with a small white head. Tons of artificial lime flavoring, and not much else. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a mouthfeel of a beverage completely characterized by artificial sweetener. Crisp, dry lingering cactus finish.
