With a premium launch during the 2019 Super Bowl, Michelob debuted its newest entrant. Focusing on its organic nature and triple filtration, though really not sure why this would be important. Strangely, Michelob Ultra Pure Gold alcohol by volume, or ABV) isn’t listed on Michelob’s website. Perhaps that’s not really core to their message, but listing calories and carbs alone, does not give a complete picture.
Based on methodology, EfficientDrinker can solve this:
- Calories: 85
- Carbs: 2.5 grams
- Protein: 0.4 grams
- Calories from alcohol: 73.4
- 85 – (4 cal / carb-protein * ( 2.9g / carb-protein))
- Grams of alcohol: 10.6
- 73.4 calories / 6.93 calories / gram
- Volume (mL) of alcohol: 15.3
- 10.6 grams / .693 (mL / gram)
- Ounces of alcohol: .52
- 15.3 mL / 29.57 mL / oz
- Alcohol By Volume: 4.30%
- .52 ounces / 12 ounces per serving
Michelob Ultra Pure Gold alcohol by volume (ABV) is 4.30%
Efficiency of Miller Ultra Pure Gold
Miller Ultra Pure Gold is quite efficient at 86.7% efficiency, meaning you get a great bang for your calorie buck, if your goal is to minimize “empty” calories, meaning those that don’t get you buzzed. It checks out 4th out of the 250+ beers this site has logged.
To see that list, sort for efficiency on the beer alcohol by volume list.
A quick note about what efficiency means, it’s the percentage of calories derived from alcohol. Typically, light beers tend to be higher on this scale, as some of the flavor of denser beers is a result of residual sugars from the brewed wort, as well as residual gluten. Light beers tend to ferment through most of the wort and therefore have less of these residual, non alcohol calories, both on a unit and volume basis.
