Michelob ULTRA Light Cider

Please note: I am being compensated by Blogher for writing this review, but the opinions in the review are my own.

Michelob ULTRA recently came out with a new product in its line of low calorie and low carb alcoholic beverages: Michelob ULTRA Light Cider.


Blogher is doing a campaign for it, and I was lucky enough to be chosen to review the new product. You can visit BlogHer’s Michelob ULTRA Light Cider page here. I was really excited to hear about this new drink and to get a chance to sample and review it because I love alcoholic ciders and we always have Michelob ULTRA light beer in the house for the FH.

I really like the packaging. The green apple looked so refreshing, especially against the backdrop of the clear glass showing the cascading bubbles. It just makes me think of summer.

The Light makeover produces a less sugary, less caloric beverage. Each 12 ounce bottle has only 100 calories and 10 grams of carbohydrates (6 grams of sugar).

Even though I knew that this drink isn’t as sweet as normal cider, I was still surprised on my initial sip. The apple cider taste is very subtle. The drink tastes like beer but just slightly sweeter from the cider.

If you’re looking for an alternative to beer and you’re counting your calories and sugar intake, this is a good option to check out.

Because this product just launched, it’s a little hard to find. Michelob provides a search to find the nearest stores near you that carries it.
