1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
22 oz can to pint. Looks watery with ample carbonation and a shut load of white head. Smells and tastes like was...which is what I’ll probably be pissing out of later. In fact, I should probably be drinking this on the toilet. Just awful.

12 oz can pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt and a bit of citrus. Taste was basically the malt. Not good

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
OK looking but not great, a little white head with some lacing topped a clear, light yellow, fizzy brew.
Smell is quite grainy and a little grassy, without a whole lot else going on, other than perhaps a touch of sweetness.
Taste is sweet, grainy, with a little grass and basically zero hops.
Body is light, well carbonated, with a slick, sweet aftertaste.
Overall it’s not my fav for the cheep lager category. Amongst Milwalkee’s best brands, I prefer the light. It’s funny to even have a preference on this sort of beer, but hey, back in the day we drank a lot of this stuff. It’s good for what it’s good for, cheep beer, very cheep. This one is fine in that respect.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Originally reviewed: 8/17/09. Poured this into my pilsner glass. Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with plenty of bubbles rising up, and a huge frothy white head capping it off. Retention is weak, but there is some sticky lacing. Not bad. Smells of lemons, orange zest, grass, and cleaning solution.
The mouth is very thin and weak. Not bite at all. This is horrible. Flavor is of weak corn and mellow lemon. There is nothing to this at all. I wasn’t expecting much, but this still found a way to leave me wanting. Ugh. Avoid.

This is hands down best bang for buck beer.... Extremely cheap, and efficient..... For the price it can’t be beat..... The fact that it tastes so smooth for what it is blows the mind....

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a very clear golden color, no real head retention. The bubbles are the largest I have ever seen in any kind of carbonated beverage. Smells intensely adjuncty- unappetizing grain and cereal split through with promises of suffering to come. Yep, those bubbles are pretty large. Paradoxically this beer manages to be both overcarbonated and flat. It is as if the carbonation is unequally distributed in the liquid. Some serious macro black magic here. Tastes largely like the inside of the aluminum can it came in. Other ’flavors’ include powdered grain cereal and hints of grain alcohol. As awful as this product is, it still doesn’t approach the Lithuanian radioactive waste I had a few months ago.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted from pint can into shaker. Poured a crystal-clear straw color with tall, persistent head and a little lace. Aromas of corn ethanol, slight alcohol, no real malt or hops. Flavor was mostly neutral with a very mellow maltiness and mild hops balance. Light body, spritzy carbonation, dry lager finish. Harsh and offensive, but perhaps less so than I expected.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 Great macro, love the taste and price. A trip back in time to a great beer at a great price. My staple, easy to drink and a good taste. I walked 1.5 miles in a snowstorm, 26 degrees. In a snow-storm and back with a 30 pack stapped to my back on payday. Gave a new meaning to the phrase beer run. Car was not an option. Ya’ll rerate this beer. Beast Ice forever.

Enjoyed directly from 24 oz tallboy - Pros: 5.9% prominently displayed on can / Cons: About everything else. Look, if you are going to go cheap domestic, why not add the extra alcohol content? I can’t discern the difference between this and the multitudes of other big bev pales, so go big! Finish is noticeably tin / alcohol byproducts.

Big-ass can. Clear pale yellow pour, big pure white carbonated head that actually clings to the glass. Stale corn and water all over this mutha - this glass is cold, but man, this would really suck at a little warmer temperature. Bong-able, shotgun-able, drain pour-able.
