After my tasting of the Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus, I was debating if I should save myself the time and just open the bottle and pour it down the drain without a moment of hesitation but alas I figured why not be a ratings whore today and abuse my palate some more!

I opened the bottle (bought as a single) and poured it into my pint glass: Grassy light golden hue with a quickly disappearing fizzy head and zero lace. The aroma smells just like a orange Slice soda which in itself is not so bad but alas this is suppose to be a beer right? I guess if really take a deep inhale I can pick out some soapy pale malt but zero hints of any grapefruit vapours. Weeeeee....

The taste is gosh darn AWFUL, think of an OLD CAN of "insert your favorite orange soda here" with a hint of old pale grains. There is little else I can say but to AVOID this crap at all cost. Clearly aimed at the flavored wine cooler crowd. This is even worse than the Lime "beer" was...arggh!

by far the worst of the new flavors, just has a watered down orange tast and there is no grapefruit that i can tell of.

This pours with a pale yellow body and plenty of fizz. The smell reminds me of Tang, but not poontang . It could also be orange flavored bubblegum. I throw out those terms as I cannot smell anything else. The taste is bland with a hint of very weak mixed orange drink and a little bit of apple core. It also tastes like a flat Diet Sprite. The finish has a hint of stale corn flakes. The base Michelob Ultra is so thin and bland that the fruit infusion absolutely dominates the beer. This is better than most sickeningly sweet alcopops. However, it gets pretty bad as you get to the bottom of the beer.

12 oz bottle. Thin head and lace. Aroma and initial flavor is a sweet orange seltzer. Finish is a macro light beer. Not terrible, but not great.

The beer emerges from the clear 12-ounce bottle a luminous gold, the head is smallish and bright white, the lace thinner than my hair. Nose has a very sweet orange aroma, some hints of tartness also, a spilt personalities dream these beers. Start is cloyingly sweet, the grain profile light, the top thin as my wallet after Christmas. Finish is harshly acidic, hops missing in action, the aftertaste dry, not what I’d call bad, but certainly not good, makes a fine palate cleaner.
Earlier Rating: 5/21/2005 Total Score: 2.1
The beer emerges from the 12-ounce clear bottle a clear gold color with basically no head and very little lace. Nose is sweet with hints of overripe fruit and a hint of tartness from the grapefruit at the back, crisp and clean, start is sweet and sour, with a light grain profile, and the top quite thin. Finish is astringent, the hops light and the tart and aftertaste, lingers way to long. As summer has arrived in Arizona, It is supposed to be in the 110 degree Fahrenheit range today, I guess its time to breakout the “light beer palate” until the end of October when the temperature gets back into the seventies! Lol

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2005
GABF 05. Pours yellow with a pleasant orange aroma. Flavor is dry grapefruit, and the watery palate doesn’t help. Low rating ’cause it could be better, not because A/B makes it.

A good fruit beer. Not a light beer flavor, or the awful dry chemical flavor of a "flavored malt beverage." An excellent summer option

Pours a pale yellow color. Aroma is like that of orange flavored seltzer water. Tastes like an orange flavored sparkling wine. Only a slight beer flavor. Pretty bad.

Bottle poured gold yellow with no head of lacing. Aroma was fruity with oranges in the background. Flavor was sweet and I could taste a hint of orange. Not bad but rather bland.
