Default I Like Beer

Yes, I am a beer lover, but as I age, I am more concerned about calories, carbohydrates and the alcohol content.
I have been seeing commercials about a new beer called Michelob Ultra Pure Gold. Well, my thought were, yea right, another even lighter beer. My fellow beer lovers, this beer has 2.5 carbs, 85 cal and only 3.8% Alcohol By Volume.
Now, for the good part, it has the hearty flavor I look for in better beers with twice those statistics. Now I have finally found a beer that won’t be harmful that I like the taste of.

Good idea, but I do like a small relaxation buzz, without the ill effects of stronger alcohol.

It's not much different from Michelob Ultra, 95 calories, 2.6 carbs, and 4.2 percent alcohol. I often wonder if Michelob Ultra tried to copy Miller Lite, which has about same calories and alcohol content. Michelob is good, but I still prefer Miller Lite.

Possibly! This Pure Gold tastes more like a dark beer than does the original Ultra. Anyway, I like it and should be able to drink four without a hangover. As I said in the start, I like beer, but don’t want the I’ll effects of stronger Alcohol Content.:coolsmiley

I like beer too. I switched from regular Budweiser to Bush Light. It's tastes pretty darn good and it's less expensive than many other brands.

It's winter, time for white whiskey, brown shoes, and red meat.

Rather a half pint of good ale, than a pint of weak beer.

I like beer, too, but have given up regular alcohol for a while. I had been drinking IPAs, so I wanted to find a non-alcohol IPA if such a thing existed. I got lucky - there's a brewing company called "Athletic" that makes a non-alcohol IPA that's pretty darn good for non-alcohol. It's called "Run Wild". They've got about 3 other NA beers, but this is the IPA style.

If you like IPAs and want to enjoy one without having to worry about the buzz, give it a shot. Only 70 calories.

Here Hear.

I like beers with flavor like brown ales porters and stouts.

Ultra has an amber version but still pretty tasteless

None of the popular lite beers are top rated, all have similar ABVs, carbs and calories, so why not buy whatever tastes good to you and is on sale.

thanks for the tip. I tend to prefer a darker flavorful beer - fav is Sam Adams, but typically have Yuengling Black&Tan. I would like to limit cals&carbs, even with having only 1 bottle every day or so. I will try Michelob Ultra Pure Gold...better not taste like peewater JJ...
