Years ago I drank Michelob with some frequency, but as my life changed, so did my taste. I went on to other brands and left Mic on the shelf. I took note when Michelob came out in "Ultra", which is marketing for "light beer that costs a little more". Then Flannery bought a six of Michelob Ultra-Pomegranate/Raspberry. I scoffed. "Froo-Froo girly beer," I thought and dismissed it.
Until one night, I was sitting here at the keyboard writing and I downed the last swallow of that delicious French beer, "La Pabst", and I realized that was the last beer in the house. Well, other than the fruity stuff that Flannery bought. I wasn't quite finished with what I was writing and it was later than most repectable people venture out for more beer, so I opened one of hers.
Damn, is it good. Light, fruity, and crisp. An all-around good summer beer. And at 4.2% alcohol you can have an extra and not worry about it catching up to you too quickly. Try one and tell me what you think.
