I was stranded in some town in the midwest last night - only cornfields, people lighting fireworks and beer stores. Needless to say, visited the beer store. Thought my best chances were with this. Hadn’t had it for years. This is fizzy, alcoholic corn water. Unbelievably nauseating and not worth drinking, I threw the rest away. Just thinking about it makes me sick.
Absolute crap for the masses. And it’s consumed by so many humans?

Aroma is quite light, quite in character with its pale whitish-gold color, which distinguishes it from most of its American macrobrewed brethren. The flavor is also more appealing than most mass-produced products. Though not really distinctively hopped, it has a mild and pleasant bite, and counterbalanced by the presence of rice malt, which is certainly a preferable adjunct to the more heavy-handed corn overtones present in competitor mega-brewers’ flagship products. One admirable aspect of A-B’s operations is the remarkable consistency of a product brewed in twelve regional plants. This is a very respectable mass-market product, several cuts above the swill it is so often characterized to be.

Slightly better than Bud Lite, and often very carbonated. It seems to be very popular in England for whatever reason.

Simply put, this isn’t beer. You don’t brew beer with rice okay? Reinheitsgebot anyone? I don’t understand why this shit is so popular in our great nation. I refer to this beer as ’Buttwiper, King of Rears’. Thank you.
