...if you have a drinking problem.

Just set a normal amount of beers for an evening (say 3) in your fridge. Then line up a sixer of Michelob Ultra behind that with the solemn oath that you will not drink anything else until you have finished the Ultra. Put any other cold beer behind the ultra.

You will drink the 3 beers, and then 2 or 3 sips into the first ultra, you will decide that you no longer really need another beer.

Good God.

That sixer should last you at least a week or so.

As weak as that stuff is, it should take a good drinker maybe 5-10 minutes to burn through it. That has got to be the most watery, tasteless beer I've ever tried.

I disagree. I'm a good drinker, but I struggle with that much liquid. I have to drink a minimum of 80 ounces of water a day for my diet and it's pretty danged hard for me to do.

I definitely couldn't consume a carbonated beverage any faster...

I'm ashamed that that is often the beer of choice for the women my age that I know. Ugh. Why even drink anything?

A while back (wow 6 years ago!) I went to visit my best high school friend out at his college in Kansas... he raved how Michelob Ultra was his favorite best tasting beer of all time....

I haven't spoken to him since.

I just put a few of that batch that "never really quite worked out" and that seems to do it if need be. But eventually I'll cook with it and then the floodgates open again

I drank a 20pk of Michelob Light bottles once in just over an hour. We were playing Chase the Ace.

Michelob Light is still one of my preferred BMC beers. Ultra, however, is just water. I could probably guzzle that stuff *far* too quickly.

I have to be honest here. I enjoy the occasional BMC, particularly on a hot day...maybe after working in the yard. Regular Coors appeals to me, then, as does Corona Light with lime. But Ultra? Not a chance. And that's saying something, as apparently my own beer tastes are somewhat more pedestrian than most on this forum.
