[787-20071028] 473mL. Yeast and hay fields stacked with wet week-old corn. Clear, yellow light brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Corn and hay yeast flavour. Light body is a little effervescent. What IS Milwaukee’s best anyway?

Corn sweetness aroma. Golden appearance. Flavor is grain sweetness and a little crisp, but I think due more so to the extreme carbonation than any hops to speak of. It does the job. It is made for college kids and should be used for drinking games such as beer pong and quarters.

I’ve had worse; especailly considering I paid the same for a six that I usually pay for a pint at the pub. However, I’m afraid the remaining 5 will darken the back of my fridge for quite awhile though. Aroma - almost non-existent - but beats skunky. Head - foamy white and quickly diminshing with no lace. Flavor - while almost non-exisistent - is smooth throughout. Worth the 50 cents a can I paid for it!

I like Milwaukee. Good town, good people, good microbrews... They can do much, much better than this p-water. To call this watery, tasteless lager their best is an insult to those good folk. It tastes, at best, like the waste output of a chemical factory.

The only things these crappy american standards have as pros is price and quenching on a hot day....just like water! Hey, I can drink water for free. Well, looks like I’ve just excluded the need for this beer in the world.

Can to pint. Looks thin. Smells and tastes cheap and skunky with a below average mouthfeel. Not good. At all.

12 oz. can. This was my dad’s beer of choice because it was cheaper than Hudepohl at the time. Pours a clear light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor consisted of sweet corn and a touch of apple juice. Slight metallic notes as well. I can’t spin this any other way; it’s not very good. I guess there are some out there that are worse though.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 12 oz cans. This tasted extremely similar to the Best Light version. The alcohol is virtually the same as well. I guess theres no point in getting the regular over the light. Awful and offensive.

This is the last surviving beer brand from the A. Gettelman Brewing Company that SAB/Miller continues to brew. This is an old beer brand that first hit the market during the pre-Prohibition years. (1897 to be exact). Actually, today’s Milwaukee’s Best is not a bad macro-produced beer. It has a little flavor and will satisfy the light beer drinkers. Pours a light yellow gold brew with a fast dissolving white head. Aroma is very light corn bread, a very, very hint of sweet floral hops and maybe a drop of honey. Flavor is very light and clean. Finish is a little gritty but is not offensive. Though the Milwaukee’s Best brew from the early 1900s and the brew of the 21st Century share the same brand name, the recipes of the two are light years apart, Tom Gettelman once told me the recipe for Milwaukee’s Best of the 1950s (50% barley, 50% corn) which was a medium body brew. It would be interesting to have Milwaukee’s Best rated today with the old recipe.
