Originally brewed at Michigan Brewing Company and since 2012 in Brew Detroit.
Itís born out of of bushels of American barley and hops harvested straight from the heartland. Itís crafted with care in place where Detroitís factories mark one horizon and wild forests mark the next. This beerís built with Michigan pride. Pry one open and youíll know: thereís trouble brewing. This is pure American Badass. americanbadassbeer.com

No aroma. Taste is well balanced and fairly robust for a pale lager. Somewhat sweet with hints of roasted malt. I think itís actually quite good for this style and donít understand all the hate being spewed forth towards this beer.

I havenít been rating much, but felt compelled to do so because of this beer. This is by far the most tasteless beer I have ever had in my life. It took me half the bottle to discern it from water. I really wanted to like this beer too, because of the Detroit, Kid Rock, awesome name things. Oh well, donít even bother people, it is completely a waste of money. Donít buy it so that they will go back to the drawing board and put something worth drinking out.

Pours very clear, light yellow with a minimal fizzy head. Smells weak, slightly grassy. Tastes grassy, funky malt, and very metallic, even though its from a bottle. Typical american pale, lacking the badass. Somewhat refreshing.

Good head and some lacing. Very pale yellow without much of an aroma. Flavor is rather bland with a touch of rice in the aftertaste. Packaging looks pretty cool, but the appearance and taste is anything but the name.

Bottle shared by DurrmanSW. Appearance is super clear ass yellow, like water with a drop of yellow food coloring. Aroma is hair band metal and hippies, very super high premium cornyness. Very bland and not much flavor at all. SHITTY like his music, and thats why that said on their website that it was not craft beer!!!!!!! I just brewed a beer that tastes better as wort.

Pours up very light white on tap at the brewery. No head. Aroma of light alcohol. Not really much flavor, either. Thereís nothing offensive about it.

Right, pretty much the worst beer Iíve ever had. Itís incredibly light with almost no taste. What little taste there is, is horrible. The only thing that I liked was the label. BADASS - AMERICAN LAGER. Sounds awesome. Tastes like shit. Iíd take Miller Light over this any day, and thatís saying a lot.

Bomber. Pours a very light straw color with a fizzy white head that quickly dissapates. Heavy corn aroma. Surprisingly smooth tasting ,without the cheap macro beer bite. Very thin and watered down with just a hint of grain and corn in the finish. Refreshing on a hot and humid Summer night, but way overpriced for what you get.

poured a clear yellow with no head. aroma not much going on here got some malt and yeast. flavor corn, malt, citrus. the only thing this has above the bud and miler is that it has a fuller mouth feel. Kid should be ashamed of himself for being associated with this beer. But I guess if you are trying to appeal to the bud crowd this might go over big with them

Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured one of the palest clearest beers I have ever seen. There was a slight gold tinge. The head was a large bubbly white one that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet corn with perhaps a bit of sweet grain as well. Flavor had corn but there was a bit more with grass and sweet grain notes adding more. It ended up being pretty drinkable.
