1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Words can not comprehend how bad this beer really is. No wonder the nickname "beast" is so often used for this "beer". I’ve been told they make a "chest" of this drink that you can purchase 30 of them for 10 dollars. I wonder why. Don’t even bother unless you have enough adventure to say you’ve had the worst beer on the face of the planet

Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a bright yellow color with a huge yellow-white head. The aroma was dryish, tangy industrial lager. The flavor was dryish and tangy with notes of cardboard. The finish was short and dry. Overcarbonated. Bland.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2005 Really not too bad for a macro. Actually has a little flavor that is very light and not offensive. At least it is drinkable. Faint corn and some light flowey hops. This is not as bad as the rating indicates.

Better than Miller, but surely Milwaukee has better to offer than this. Embarassing.

This brew from a can poured a medium head of fine to medium sized mostly diminishing white colored bubbles that left behind a carbonated urine yellow colored transparent body and no lace. The aroma was that of a mild malt light hop and the mouthfeel was slightly bubbly medium texture and smooth. The flavor is mild with rice beer like qualities made up of mild hop and mild malt tastes.

Can. Yellow straw color with a fisy bubbly white head. Damn these american standards make you work to find something. Dusty light malt aroma. Light brown sugar and slight mild grain flavor.

Notorious for the bad aroma, Beast was a favorite purchase in college for the frats, but not when I was buying.
