Low carb / low calorie beers can be dark and fairly full bodied. Michelob Ultra Amber is only 3.2g carbs, 95 calories, and pretty tasty!
The color of the Michelob Ultra Amber is definitely darker than the many other light beers on the market. It also has a richer flavor. It's not mild - people who are looking for a no-taste beer to guzzle after a hot day of mowing might not like this one. It's got a bitter hint to its flavor and a nice finish.
Where many "light" beers have an incredibly high carb value, Michelob Ultra Amber shines with its 95 calories and 3.2g of carbs. This is a true low carb beer, and somehow it maintains the flavor at the same time.
It's important as with all beer to keep the beer from being skunked. Beer can skunk in under 10 minutes if it's left in the sun! The dark brown bottle definitely helps fight this off, but be sure if you pour your beer in a glass that you keep it in the shade.
Well worth a try if you enjoy a beer with a flavor to it.
Note: Michelob Ultra Amber was originally 3.7g carbs, 1.2g of protein, and 114 calories. It has been updated over the years.
