NFCA volunteer Laura Hanley of G-Free Laura submitted the below review for Michelob ULTRA Light Cider.
Now that we are knee deep in summer, there are a lot of instances where a gluten-free drinker would like to spend the afternoon tipping back some cold beverages and enjoying themselves for the afternoon/day/weekend. Being that we can’t really drink beer like everyone else (unless gluten-free beer is easy for you to purchase or available at the establishment you visit often), life can seem a bit hard on us. But, good news folks – we have ANOTHER cider to turn to when we want to sit back, relax, and drink some tasty beverages.
Michelob ULTRA recently came out with its very first Light Cider, a 120 calorie/bottle beverage that is pretty much the perfect day-drinking alternative! It is great for those celiac and gluten-free drinkers, along with the general public, because it is a lower calorie alternative to traditional malt beverages.
Since I only recently got into drinking cider, I have a fresh perspective on the category. As a young lady that likes to enjoy adult beverages while spending the day on the beach, I have always found it hard to find alcohol that wasn’t too strong, yet tasted good. Let me tell you, sipping on hard liquor all day is bad news, because no one is superman/woman. But, Michelob ULTRA Light Cider is perfect for either a marathon drinking-day or just a nice drink after work treat.
Ask anyone who knows me, I am one picky girl. The fact that I enjoy this cider is a victory in itself. Also, now is the perfect time to try it, with its natural summer taste and feel! You can go to the Michelob website to find more information, as well as see where Michelob ULTRA Light Cider is available near you –both at grocery stores and drinking establishments!
You will have a six-pack at your fingertips and in your koozie in no time, which is another great thing about this beverage. I often read reviews of a gluten-free product and then find that it is not available near me. This is not the case for Michelob ULTRA Light Cider! How exciting is that?!
I hope everyone (of appropriate age) has a chance to try this cider, as I am sure your taste buds will be pleased!
