Michelob Ultra: Superior Light Beer reviewed by Brandon C. Hovey

Country of Origin: United States of America (St. Louis, MO and others)

Beer Style: Light Lager

Brewery: Anheuser-Busch InBev

Abv: 4.2% abv

Serving Method: 12 oz bottle poured into seven ounce plastic cup

Background: You know by now that I’m not altogether against macro beers. Anheuser-Busch InBev does a fine job with macro beers. I’m not keen on light beers though.


Taste & Aroma: The beer smells of sweet bread and wet grain. Sugar too! Odd for beer. The flavor is good here though! It is a sharpness and a spicy burn from some hops. Maybe? Can’t say this is a complex beer. Or a simple beer. It reminds me of a beer-soda derivative. Dude, where’s the hops? Where’s the flavor, neighbor?



Final Analysis: I’ll have something else, thanks. I don’t want to try this on draught either. When it comes to light beer, I think Budweiser Select is tops. Otherwise, I cannot tell you I like them any more. If I ever really did. Michelob is better than its Ultra cousin. I cannot tell you what is Ultra about this. Ultra letdown?

  1. Now, gents! I never said it was an Eww beer. It wasn’t too bad. I’ll stick with good old Budweiser and others similar to it. I think the both of you will enjoy the two I’ll be reviewing next.
