It tasted like someone mixed stale Steel Reserve with Welch’s Grape Soda. It was amazing how much it exceeded my expectations of how bad a beer called Beer 30 Light could be. I gave it a two for appearance because the can had a mountain on it, and mountains are often scenic.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can thanks to billshmeinke. Pours with a clear yellow-gold hue with a fading, white, fizzy ring. Aromas are of apple, sulfur, and DMS. Soggy malt and uric acid. Flavors are apple, DMS, light citric acid component. Rubbish. Lively bubbles, super thin and quite dry.

Some low-priced beers like Boxer are even better than BMC, others, like this just blow.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2012 12 ounce can, Buffalo, New York. Large hole gashed in bottom in order to properly shotgun. Purchased in a 30-rack for 12.99. Wonderful packaging that guarantees you a good time. Hints of grape alleviate an otherwise dusty, industrial aroma. As I was shotgunning, I noticed the carbonation was superbly high, making it exceptional for such a drinking technique. Taste was irrelevant, but the aroma of rotting grapes and the fields of Wisconsin and Indiana lifted my spirits as it traveled down into my stomach. Definitely a light body that did not fill me up too quickly, and left a unique finishing taste that I can only describe as ’lead pipe’.
As a result, I have come to the conclusion that this is the perfect beer for shotgunning, due to it’s low carbonation and very watery texture. Great for beginners. Serve warm or slightly chilled while playing a rousing drinking game of ’Dice’.
A chaser of other, personally preferred beer is recommended after each shotgun.

Look. This beer tastes like old Shasta grape soda. It is easy though, and can be consumed in quantity for pennies. What did you expect. Keep a case in your extra fridge for the unimportant company.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can, graciously shared at the July Santa Cruz tasting. Pours a sickly yellowish straw color, evoking images of corn cob aged hose water, with a sputtering gray head. It could be power of suggestion with the laughable purple can, or it could be a really weird gross fermentation, but I’m getting some distinct grape notes on the nose. Beyond that, maybe some rotting grains. Flavor thankfully eases up on the fruit solvent and retreats into your basic dirty pale lager with dusty corny grains and a vanishing unsavory finish. Carbonation is surprisingly low for the style, giving a tap watery impression. No reason to ever drink this even for free. Well, the tick is worth it.

Why do they make this? It is so terrible that if I was able to give it a negative score I would. I feel sorry for the college students where I normally see this sludge at. Their should be a Congress hearing on what can be consider beer, because their are alot of trash beers like this that prey on students who don’t know any better.

Only reason I rated it so high was because I paid less then 0.50 for a 24 oz can. They also had a 30 pack for less than 9 bucks. BAD, BAD, BAD

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A: This one pours a pale straw color with a minimal white head forming. Already not living up to Beer 30 Ice...
S: Rotten vegetables is the best way I can think to describe this aroma. A bit of garbage and paper is also there. Sure, plenty of corn, sugar, and metal, too.
T: Very corny and vegetal. Lots of sweet apple juice flavor and a nice metallic note. Mildly sour and lemony. Though not intense, the flavor is certainly abrasive.
M: Light in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: Somehow, worse than Beer 30 Ice.
