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.

I had one of these out of my friends dadís garage when I was 19. I totally felt badass. I saw this beer on diners drive ins and dives. Guy Fieris death spikes hair do was pretty badass... This is a beer made in Michigan and endorsed by a rock star, thatís pretty badass. This beer is badass in spirit in a way rarely seen in the craft beer world. That being said it is not good... It is bad. Buy it to feel badass... Not actually be badass...

I would say this beer is definitely more "American" than it is "Badass." I could see it being pretty Redneck too. It does feel nice drinking something local(as I live in Michigan), but thatís all it really has going for it... If this were in any bars, Iíd easily go for it over Bud or Miller, but not over any craft lagers or other craft beers.

Bottle sampled at a friends house. From notes. Corn, grains, water. Meh, not awful but not the best Iíve had.

Never thought I would find this random tick at a neighbors. The wife is a big Kid Rock fan, though. So thereís that. Pours light golden. Taste is corny, sweet, grains, and actually a touch of floral hops. Not offensive and actually better than the mega brewers. I saved the bottle because its BADASS.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Bottle: Thanks to Josh for the split on this one, but I might have been better off without it. This beer tastes like Kid Rock looks. Homely & poor, just a vapid waste of space. Nothing but mild grains, corn sweetness, & stale hops. You can taste the adjunct. Steel-y and bitter in the finish. People arenít really buying this stuff, are they? This is one of the worst things ever invented, besides Kid Rockís music.

It becomes very apparent after drinking this swill why Michigan Brewery went out of business. Everything about the "beer" is summed up in the name. BAD, as in lack of everything. ASS, as in what it tastes like. Unfortunately, ratings below 1 are not provided. As it contains hops, water, grain, and yeast, they cannot be sued for false advertising in calling this "beer."

Strangebrewer (903) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
bottle. Poured extremely light yellow with no head. Faint aroma of adjunct grains. Typical carbonated mouthfeel, bland. Sweet grainy corn flavour. Well is does have "Bad" in the name.

355ml bottle from variety pack. This is the palest, whitest beer i have come across (Lovibond 1). Barely any scent discernible - light cider. Zero head. Almost thought it was a wheat beer. Nothing really Badass about though. It's about the most run of the mill beers you could drink. Slight softness in the palate. Smallest trace of lacing. Bland tasting. Somewhat cidery. No aftertaste though, and good carbonation. Easy drinking.

(Sampled 5.19.12)- 12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a very transparent light yellow color- even more so than your standard pale lager- medium carbonation, heavy nose of corn. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt is just pure corn, hops and sugar round out the experience. It was all that bad, helped us to cool down since the cabin didnít have air conditioning and it hit 96 outside.
