1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Bottle: Pale straw body, wispy white "head" with an aroma comprised mostly of cereal grains, hay, stale hops, & metal. Light skunk. Taste has even more skunk with a steel-y, metallic aftertaste. Dusty, old hop astringent bitterness with an underlying grainy sweetness. Pretty poor on essentially all levels.

24oz can in Seattle. Sweet pale lager. Smooth, creamy. Pale yellow with mild white head. Grape, grain, apple juice. Not the worst, but not very crisp or refreshing.

Deductive reasoning tells me this is piss rather than beer. Looks like piss, smells like piss, tastes like piss. Of course, I’m just guessing on the last one. For all I know, this might taste worse than piss.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
12oz bottle (old notes)-Pours yellow with a decent head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not as bad as other pale lagers in the price category.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Pours clear straw gold with quickly settling head. Thin lace. Aroma is corn, very sweet, stale, hint of bitter, cracker malt. Flavor is corn, sugar, with a mild malt, very sweet finish. Soft carbonation, light body, and syrupy texture. A poor macro lager.
