Michelob ULTRA Light Cider Review
Michelob Ultra recently introduced a new product to their line-up of calorie conscious adult beverages – ULTRA Light Cider made with crisp apples. ULTRA Light Cider has 120 calories per serving. That’s one-third fewer calories than an average of the leading regular hard ciders. Cider is naturally gluten-free, which doesn’t matter at all to me, gluten and I are good buddies. That being said, I know lots of my readers are either gluten intolerant or have decided that a gluten-free diet is for them, so this would be a good beverage choice .
You can enjoy this cider either straight from the fridge or over ice if you prefer. ULTRA Light Cider is naturally sweetened with stevia. While it isn’t as sweet as most hard ciders, I typically am not a fan of sweet beverages or the taste of stevia. When making a beverage selection, I prefer dry champagne, gin, really fresh margaritas, or craft beer. While ULTRA Light Cider may not have been my personal favorite, I do think that a lot of you will like it. To brighten the flavor, I dressed up my ULTRA Light Cider with some sliced granny smith apples and limes. It added some nice complexity and tartness to the mix, and I enjoyed it this way. If you’re a fan of cider and looking to cut calories, ULTRA Light Cider is a great choice.
Michelob ULTRA Light Cider would be fun for a picnic, enjoying poolside, floating the river or kicking back with family and friends. I think it will pair well with grilled veggies, fish or chicken. Which favorite summer meal or activity do you think would go best with Michelob ULTRA Cider?
