Nothing says" I grabbed this from a going-out-of business Kroger store on the way to the party" like a case of "BEER." Now Pabst, once Schlitz, Mller or Falstaff (the Falstaff version, several years ago, was the best), this stuff is pretty good for the price, when you can find it. I’ve won many bad beer contests with it, yet there’s never any left at the end of the evening.

Not to bad...I thought I was in for the worst swill ever but found it to be smooth, and not bitter or overly malty... Tastes better than the Beast. I wonder if they use frankencorn in this stuff.

Love the label. Almost as cool as those No Frills beers I came across in the late 80s. Pours yellow and fizzy. Smells and tastes like adjunct heaven with some corn and water as the beer warms. Not bad for an econo-beer.

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.

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

12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew tastes as generic as the can.

found in Lucky Food Stores under their ’generic’ yellow label, it defies a novice’s proclomation that beer is beer

Is this the famous white can with a blue line and all it says is beer? I remember this one way back, we bought it as a joke all drunk, was like 99 cents a six pack. Tasted like ice cold salty sunflower seeds water. I know, dont take it seriously, but we were plastered when we bought it and kept telling people at the party, want a beer? and giving them this shit can. Why a full star? Cause the can was cool.

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.
