Product Review – Michelob ULTRA Light Cider

The Summer heat came early this year and so did our hunt for some light refreshing Summertime beverages to enjoy with family and friends.

Being a native of St. Louis, Missouri, we have access to some great beers made by hometown favorite, Anheuser-Busch. We were pleasantly surprised to have the opportunity to taste and review one of their newest products, Michelob ULTRA Light Cider, the first cider they have produced and distributed in the U.S.

This beverage is perfect for hot Summer days and evenings. You can enjoy it alone or with your favorite Summertime snack or BBQ. We enjoyed trying our first six-pack over Memorial Day weekend when the temperatures hit record highs. Both the younger crowd and the not so young enjoyed the taste and flavor of ULTRA Light Cider.

ULTRA Light Cider is brewed like beer; however, instead of barley and hops, they use apples. It’s not beer, and it doesn’t taste like beer. The apple taste in the ULTRA Light Cider is prominent – not too sweet and slightly tart. Our guess is that they use crisp, tart green apples. The flavor is reminiscent of the apple part of the Caramel Apple Pops that the kids enjoy at Halloween albeit an adult version.

This is a nice alternative to white wines, champagne and sparkling wines, and other, more traditional hard ciders. We drank the ULTRA Light Cider cold both straight out of the bottle and over ice. I especially liked it over ice as a way to keep it very cold and refreshing.

And while, ULTRA Light Cider is lower in calories than other hard ciders and is naturally sweetened with stevia, what is particularly important for our family is that it is naturally gluten-free. We have many family members who are gluten intolerant and ULTRA Light Cider is a wonderful alternative to have available for them.

If you like the taste of tart apples, and you are looking for a new and different adult beverage to enjoy during the hot days of Summer, go to your nearest grocery store or other major retailer and pick up a six-pack of ULTRA Light Cider today.

Crisp. Light. Tart. Refreshing.

Try it and let me know, which favorite summer meal or activity do you think would go best with Michelob ULTRA Light Cider?
