I invited Mel to my roof to drink beers and talk about boys. I had a brand-new six pack of Michelob ULTRA Light Cider.
"It tastes like a Jolly Rancher," she said.
She was partially right. Cider is brewed the same way beer is brewed; however, cider uses apples instead of beer's barley and hops. Michelob ULTRA Light Cider provides a crisp fruit taste without being sickeningly sweet like with those "hard" lemonades. ULTRA Light Cider boasts all-natural ingredients, including hand-picked apples, and is naturally sweetened with stevia. It's also gluten free, which can't be said for most beers. All for only 120 calories.
For Melissa, she’s a fan of the Michelob ULTRA line. When she’d headed to my place, she was coming from her softball game. Tomorrow, she’ll be going to CrossFit. She depends on the low-calorie and low-carb counts of Michelob ULTRA when she does drink alcohol. In addition to the light cider, Michelob ULTRA also offers Lime Cactus and Pomegranate Raspberry favored pilsners.
For a beer drinker like me, I enjoyed that the apple taste was subtle. It was something light and refreshing that could be enjoyed when it's really hot outside. It was a summertime option to the traditional ciders, which in my opinion are too heavy or sweet to be enjoyed on an outdoor patio. When my skin is cooking, I want something light.
We stood on my roof and enjoyed the ciders as we watched the sun set and gabbed about boys. When the sky turned a cool pink, the streams of lights decorating the roof illuminated the evening. I stood with Mel and watched the sun set behind the high rises. It was the perfect evening.
