(Revised from 2007 rating.) The Beast lives up to its moniker: grainy, sweet, dry, and harsh - overly carbonated even for a rock-bottom cheap beer, and drinks higher than its modest alcohol content. Go with Beast Ice for more alcohol, or go with Beast Light for less aggressively shitty taste.

Had this back when it was just Milwaukee’s Best, the Beast, lol! Pours a clear light golden color with white head. Light grain, some skunk. Drinkable.

Aromaless, tasteless, flavorless, but maybe sort of resembles a slight beer feel on the palate or maybe because it’s 90 degrees and the extra 12 oz of water feels ok tonight. Blah

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Almost always outa the can, but for reviewing purposes and notes from several taken into the pint glass, well here goes.
The appearance was an exceptionally light looking yellow color with a decent bubbly-ness rising to try to fill a rapidly dissipating head that left no lacing.
The smell, well, there was some cooked/burnt/roasty corn-ness going on, grassy and hay-like.
The taste, well, once again, there really wasn’t much there, maybe some light sweetness to it.
The palate, well, that was about a light trying to make me consider it sat semi-close to medium on the body, but honestly, I think I lean closer to light. Nice try, Miller, the carbonation, well, there’s some harshness, but nothing overbearing.
Overall, well, its an American Adjunct Lager, super hard to make outstanding, but I’ll say, standard AAL.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear gold with a whipped, tall white head.
Strange, sweetly metallic/cereal malt aroma.
Taste is soft...barley, water....
I expected this to be much worse....It’s not good, but not horrendous. Just a watery, honey malt...a little too sweet.
Alarming that this is what they term their "Premium" offering.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein hell goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch ganz leicht malzig, getreidig. Geschmack sehr wässrig, minimal malzig, getreidig, ganz leicht herb.

Attention Beer Snobs, this beer is not for you, do not bother to buy it even if you are dying of thirst. However, this is a great ice cold thirst quencher after playing a hockey game. The price point is cheap and the 30 pack is gone in a flash and nobody bellyaches about it.

This classy beer was picked up at a really chill gas station in West Virginia somewhere. 40. Pours a clear very pale golden color with a large frothy off-white head. Fair head retention. Intense corn aroma with notes of dust, grain and acrid hops. The taste is tart corn, creamed corn, acrid hops that maybe hint of grassiness but really come across as skunky. Thinner than water, highly carbonated. Truly an exceptional beer.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Recently I’ve had a morbid curiosity about industrial "economy beers" i.e. the worst the world of beer has to offer. In my search to find the absolute zero for my beer rating scale, The infamous Milwaukee’s Best or "Beast" is a contender but is still palatable to the point I must give it a few token points. Aroma and appearance is utterly bland and sterile, while taste is at least recognizable as beer but otherwise indistinctive and bland. Aftertaste is stale, at least the mouthfeel approaches medium-bodied. Hardly the "best" out there, I don’t know how the manufacturers can keep a straight face when labeling this brew. Still not entirely foul, I’ve heard rumors that the Ice or Light versions of this brand may prove to be the absolute zero of beer. The search for unmatched mediocrity continues.
