UPDATED: SEP 6, 2004 Ok, so I am going to make a beer and call it The Worlds Best Beer. Then I am going to charge a shitload of money for a sixer and then I am going to fill my bottles, that I have labeled, "The Worlds Best Beer" with cat piss. And you know what? It would still be better than this sad, sad, attempt that Anheuser has put out. I heard a story that the 10 brewmasters just got all stoned and made this stuff. Damn hippies! Oh yeah I only gave it a 4 on appearance cause at least the label is attractive. Don't be fooled for there is evilness inside. Here is a helpful little hint. Don't buy this beer/swill. If you actually want to try this this is what you do. You go somebody that you see at parties a lot, but don't like at all(he will probably be one of those bud light drinking queers). Start raving and ranting about this beer and then at the next party he will have a sixer that he paid a lot of money for. Then ask if you can try it cause you miss it so much. Then after trying it tell him he is a stupid dipshit and should burn in hell. Hahahahahaha. He will probably be mad that you told him to buy this crappy beer and you got to try this swill for free and now you can give it a horrible rating too and hopefully lower it's percentile even farther!! Go do it. It will be fun.

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a decent head. Aroma of grains, hops, and hay. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not bad as I was expecting worse coming from a green bottle.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head and little lacing. Nose brings forth some grain and a bit of some Czech/German hops. Taste is about the same, with a bit of grain but mostly just faint hops and some carbonation. Light feel with a good amount of carbonation to carry what little flavor there is. Drinks okay, but probably has a bit too much carbonation and not much real flavor. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-08-2010

Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2010
At least they included the whole world in naming this beer instead of just naming America. This has a pretty smooth flavor with a skunky aftertaste. Luckily I didn’t have to pay for my encouter with this watered down "select" beer

Seemed like a bud gone through the "green" phase turning an mediocre pale lager into a skunked one. Not so extraordinary.

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2009
I’ll keep this one nice and short. It basically tastes like a watered down Heineken. Maybe even a little more skunked tasting.

Had this one 3 years ago, and I didnt write this one down, so Im going a little off memory. Tasted just a liitle bit better than straw tea, but thats what most pale lagers taste like. Im not sure what makes this the world select....Oh, its the "fancier" bottle. Not saying it was terrible, just not "select". (Who selected it?)

Beerman6686 (4348) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2009
WOW, this really is world class, world class crap. Poured a light yellow color with a white head. Aroma was pretty minimal, bready and grass. Flavor was really watery, grassy and a slight bitter corn flavor as well.

For whatever reason I really enjoyed this beer. My only regret is that it seems tha AB has discountinued it. If anyone has any comparable brew suggestions out there let me know.

I can’t believe that this was what their brewmasters came up with. I would have fired them on the spot.
