0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
(12oz can, courtesy of Fratto) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of minerals, sweat, chemicals, and apple. Flavor of apple, minerals, and cardboard. With a name like “Beer 30” and from a brewery that has had reported health code violations, I wouldn’t expect more…

My God my cheap skate ways finally caught up to me! I bought this stuff thinking "hey thats a good deal" but the ping pong balls included should have warned me. This is the best beer for a beer game cause it really is a punishment to drink it. i bought this a month ago, drank one, and stuck it in the closet thinking it would be a good beer for beer batter due to its weird sweetness but due to a short check im down to drinking this crap... im going to bed early, its just not worth it.

Can. Just bought a 30-pack of this for $5.99. I’m dead serious. $5.99 for a 30-pack. Smells like cheap white wine. Surprisingly darker than I expected, dark gold. Crackly head dissipates fast. Has a strange sweetness to it. Surprisingly drinkable. By no means the worst beer I have ever had. No idea what planet this came from, but glad I found it. Never drank beer from a purple can before.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from pikapp327. Pours pale yellow with a big white head. Aroma is old grain, straw, a little sweet, and skunk. Taste is thin, gross, moldy hay. Why, oh why, was the 30-pack left at my house?

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
30 pack courtesy, no seriously, COURTESY of pikapp327. Thank you, so much for providing this gem for my tasting. Clear golden color with a fuzzy white head. Aroma is fruity, metal, grain and a surprise sweetness. Taste is kinda fruity upfront that immediately disappears into dry grain, bitterness and a slight touch of metal. Not revolting but not great. It’s always a good time!!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Can.
A - Clear golden color with a slightly than larger, foamy, rocky, sticky, white head. Retention is below average and settles into a thin ring of lace. Similar to other mass produced light lagers.
S - Very faint and thin. Some grain and corn aroma that is similar to other light lagers. Some mineral aroma as well. Not great.
T - A lot of cooked corn and grain provides most of the flavor. Some mineral and maybe a hint of apple and other fruitiness. Taste kind of like a cheap light lager mixed with a cheap cider.
M - Light body with a lot of carbonation. Typical to the style.
D - Not really all that drinkable. Taste isn’t great and it doesn’t refresh as much as other macro made light lagers.
Notes: Not really all that great of a beer and shows that you get what you pay for. I’ll probably stick to PBR or Miller High Life for my cheap beer, but if you want a bit more of a fruitiness in your cheap beer, this may be for you. Plus the label/name is kind of funny.
