I a can of this beer once... and I do mean once. I am irritated that the total score can not go lower than 0.5, because this beer does not deserve such a high ranking.

Don’t they think It might be a smart thing to do to name the beer something other than general generic beer. Thats messed up.

Never knew this was made by Pabst. That explains everything. I guess being generic, you’re not supposed to know these key details. They drank a lot of this stuff in "Repo Man", which is one fine film, so we score a rack of it one night and it tasted exactly as we had anticipated it would taste. Awful. Then again, I won’t complain because this is a joke beer. Gets a 5 for appearance just for the can alone.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Light golden color,small white head that faded quickly to leave little behind.The aroma was light at best with a mild malt thin hops and a sort of corn like sweetness.The flavor came off much the same as the aroma with a slight metallic side and very thin bodied with barely a hint of hops.Definately a bad brew that you’d expect to have a few qualities of a macro but this one misses the mark.

It’s bad. For crying out loud, it’s GENERIC!! Generic already means crap. If you buy something, or get something free, that says GENERIC, you cannot expect something good. So, if you ever have this, you know to expect something bad.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2004 Well, the nostalgia makes it a fond memory. I grew up in Yakima, WA, and when Mt. St. Helens erupted in 1980 my dad ran to the store. He came back with lots of TP and BEER beer. Being 16 and not caring how anything tasted I stole enough from his 3-4 cases to get a buzz, and of course doing it in such an underhanded way made it better. I graduated from that to Lucky Lager, Heidelberg, Rainier, Olympia, Schmidt and then Schlitz Bull. High School was full of great times and crappy, crappy beer. Oh, as for BEER beer, I remember it being slightly darker than creek water, musky, watery, grainy like the stuff in a cattle trough, zero hop taste, but with a foamy head that lasted about 3 seconds.

It's vile pondwater with a skunky, aluminum aftertaste. Yes, it's cheap and, yes. it's vile!

Used to be sold at Quik-Trip and Alde. One sip of this one and the rest of the aluminum went right down the sink or watered a lawn. Legend has it that dropping this will kill all life in spot of grass.

The Planetary Patriot drank it, and that's good enough for me. Not quite as good as the Always Save which he often shared with me, but it washed down popcorn and Star Trek just the same. The Peter Frampton of beers.
