0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
WARM 30 PACK FOR $8.99!!! Of course it got its ass purchased. Undoubtedly the worst ’beer’ I’ve ever had that didn’t say ’malt liquor’ on the bottle. Stunningly bad. Lost Lake, American, Gennesse, Golden Anniversary, and Clear Creek Ice are all better tasting than this. But then again, it is $8.99 for a thirty pack and I can see this getting destroyed on a rowdy summer night right around the time the liquor stores close. Being aware of this beer wins you a few street points for sure.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 12 fl. oz. can stamped 0832-1935. It pours straw yellow with a huge pale lager white fizzy head. Aroma is thin but it does have some veiled malts, corn, rice, and a low hop crispness typical for this style. The body is light. The taste is reasonably well-balanced for what it is with grainy malts and a clean, hop ending. It is average for the style so I give it an average rating.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Milwaukee Special Reserve has a very thick, quickly-dissipating white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. There is some slight lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sickly-sweet, wet grain husks and green apples. Taste is of sweet grain, husks, and green apple flavored Jolly Roger candy. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Milwaukee Special Reserve finishes mostly dry and unpleasant. Overall, this is a cheap, private label, unappealing beer. RJT

Not as bad as I expected. Interesting find; only 23 rates, is this the new RB rarity? Anyways, it was really watery, but did have a descent malt and faint hop profile for a pale lager. And, at under 3 dollars a 6 pack, I say WIN.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Not even deserving of a pour into a real glass. Aroma of stale hops, weak malt, wet straw, and skunkiness. Likely a weak pale gold color. Thin, watery. This is bad.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light amber color no head. Aroma is there and there is minimal flavor but an existing caramel malt base. Not as awful as I expected. $2.99 a sixer!

This is a great beer- almost of an amberbock lite flavor. We drink this daily and very rarely have headaches or hangovers. Plus it is cheap- tastes great- no bad afteraffects. The best thing on the market.
