Recently, I had the opportunity to try out a new hard cider from Michelob Ultra. What is hard cider you ask? Well cider is a refreshing alcoholic beverage similar to beer. It is brewed using the same process as beer, but instead of using barley and hops, the main ingredient is apples. So you end up with light and refreshing beverage with hints of apple.
To test out the Michelob Ultra Light Cider, I decided that Dana and I would grill out. It was hot out and this cider really quenched my thirst. It was crisp and clean with a light green apple taste on the back end. It was so smooth that by the time I realized that I need to take photos of the bottle, the first one was already gone. I couldn’t help it, the clear glass bottles glimmered in the sun light. It was like the cider was calling my name. Dana suggested that I take a photo before opening the next bottle. It was a good suggestion, because as soon as a bottles were opened, they were gone.
I grilled up standard grill fare to enjoy and review this hard cider; burgers and hot dogs. The cider complemented the menu perfectly. Since Michelob Ultra Light Cider is lightly flavored and not as sweet as other ciders, it cut right though the condiments and enhanced our enjoyment of the juicy burgers. Plus, the cider left us refreshed in the hot summer sun.
Unlike some of the other ciders out there, Michelob Ultra Light Cider is not heavy and overly sweet. It had a nice balance that made it super refreshing. The refreshing taste and bubbles would make Michelob ULTRA Light Cider an ideal alternative to white wine, champagne and traditional ciders.
I must say that cider is no longer a fall and winter beverage. Michelob has brewed a refreshing cider that can be enjoyed all year. Especially on a hot summer day.
The next time that you have a picnic or summer party I recommend that you pick up some Michelob ULTRA Light Cider to quench the thirst of you and your guests.
Michelob ULTRA Light cider is available nationwide (excluding CO, UT, WY and OK), and is available in six-packs of 12-ounce clear glass bottles.
