1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I took the Minhas (previously known as Huber) brewery tour yesterday. This was one of the beers they did not have on tap, but did have in 24 ounce cans. Like most Minhas brews it has a nose of wheat and bananas. But not as strongly as the others (some of their beers smell like they’re made to attract monkeys! Very much banana smell!). In the can it has a very "beery’ smell followed by rotting fruit. Slightly dark yellow pour with a white head that dies quickly. VERY fizzy head, like soda pop. The flavor is of bananas, grass, metal, and.....seltzer water. I couldn’t believe how watery this is. I had to look at the can again to double check that this was the "Lager" version and not the "Light" version. VERY watery finish. Little aftertaste.

473ml can. Sweet and not overcarbonated, it was a decent American lager. Better than Bud, anyways.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 Poured a mid-gold hue with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts and corn. Taste was also of malt and corn with that signature Minhaus flavor. Very low hop bitterness, which makes it extremely smooth. I would put this in the same category as their ’Lazy Mutt’ or even LaCrosse City Lager except with less hops than the latter. Decent palate for a dirt cheap lager. Overall, not bad if you like a smooth lager with very low hoppiness and don’t want to spend very much money.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canette 473ml. De couleur jaune et claire. Nez de maïs sucré, moyen de grains de malt pâle avec des notes métalliques ainsi que quelques traces de houblon herbeux.Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aqueuse aux petites notes huileuses. Léger goût de grains de malt pâle avec de faibles traces de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve des traces amères de houblon herbeux. Post-goût très court, aux faibles notes amères de houblon herbeux avec des notes métalliques.

Honestly, I give this beer credit, it is no worse than BMC and costs half the price, there is no logical reason to buy bud, miller, pabst, or coors products when this one isn’t any worse, 10.99 a 36 pack people. It is a bad beer, but so is bmc, might as well have it not be a total waste of money.

All you candy asses out there who rated this poorly should try a blind taste test w/ your favorite trendy cheap brew. I’ll bet you a pair of snug-legged levis that you can’t tell the difference. Be honest with yourselves; it’s an easy drinking, relatively tasty, inexpensive brew. For the fops in the crowd, it’s an easy target. For the honest beer consumers, it’s a great bargain and an enjoyable Wisconsin beer.

I purchased a 36 pack of Boxer form my local C-Store/Gas Station, and must admit at the very least I was a little disappointed. How can something as bad as this call itself a Beer? I offered one to my neighbor who is in fact a raging alcoholic, after one can of Boxer he has gone back to drinking Aqua Velva after Shave. My only advice is if you happen to find yourself like I did at a C-Store/Gas Station, do yourself a favor and skip the Boxer Beer, Go outside and drink straight from the pump.

Yep, it is bad. Really bad. Lifeless appearance. Aromas of corn, chemical and other horrid odors. Taste is chemical, corn, rotted vegetables, old bananas, dog and piss. Never buy this.

12oz. can from a 36-PACK THAT COST $10... Do I really need to say anymore? You know this beer is swill. It smells like slightly sweet corn water. It tastes basically the same: thin, watery, over-carbonated, weak, and slightly sweet/malty with an emphasis on drunken oblivion. However, its 5% and has more flavor than most really cheap beers - AND... IT IS ACTUALLY CHEAP! It is clear what it intends to be - and in this it succeeds. I can’t imagine a game of beer pong without a 36er of BOXER nearby.

"Finally," I whispered to myself in the lonely halls of the liqour store, "Finally my dream has come true." It was standing right in front of me, the holy grail, and I the Indiana Jones looking upon it in amazement.
"Finally, I have found that which I sought. That which hath eluded me in my deepest of dreams... "The Boxer" Simon and Garfunkel branded beer!"
I could only imagine the taste! Would Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel’s soothing duet of voices come out in the palate? Would the sorrowful lyrics come out in the nose?
When I keep a swig in my mouth, will I too taste the tears The Boxer once felt? "He is leaving, he is leaving," the boxer says, "but the fighter still remains." What will remain of The Boxer when I swallow?
Unfortunately , this is probably the worst Simon and Garfunkel branded beer I’ve ever had. Did they even listen to the song?!
