I almost NEVER write paid reviews, but this time I made an exception for one very obvious reason: the product involved BOOZE. And even better, it involved a type of booze I actually enjoy drinking! Hard cider!
Michelob ULTRA Light Cider to be exact. (Visit their website here.)
We all know I’m a lush. It’s not like I try to hide it. (I’m also not an alcoholic. Alcoholics go to meetings. I go to parties!) (I stole that line from a friend of Bill’s I used to date.) But as much as I love me a five o’clocktail, I’ve never been much of a beer drinker. It’s too heavy and tends to interfere with food, rather than enhance it. So I always, ALWAYS opt for hard cider instead. Fortunately, I’m lucky to live in a city that has a multitude of breweries with their own cider recipes, most of which I’ve tried.
Michelob ULTRA Light Cider definitely lived up to its name. It was by far the lightest cider I’ve ever tasted. Which was perfect because I’m hypoglycemic and I really have to watch my sugar intake. This was the first cider I’ve ever purchased that actually had the nutritional information RIGHT THERE ON THE BOTTLE. Most other ciders are oblique at best about their contents, nutritional or otherwise. Sometimes it’s even difficult to tell whether or not they’re gluten-free. (Michelob ULTRA Light Cider IS.)
I liked that Michelob ULTRA Light Cider had only six grams of sugar per bottle. That’s nothing, so I really didn’t have to worry about my blood sugar spiking or dropping. And I’ll be honest: I was eating a burrito for dinner and I totally had a second bottle. We finished the rest of the six-pack after a ten hour yard work bender that Sunday. It was the perfect thing to drink after mowing the lawn. Do you like cider? Which favorite summer meal or activity do you think would go best with Michelob ULTRA Cider?.
