This is what I call ’poor man’s Heineken.’ When all I can afford is a cheap beer it ain’t bad when it’s fresh, but too often it is stale and nasty.

Holy Moly, I have also neglected to rate Special Ex?
Pours a pretty pale golden with a nice well retained medium sized head and plenty of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is faint, a little soapy... a little yeasty... a touch sweet, certainly some graininess. It’s less offensive than the typical industrial lager, even fairly "clean" I might say.
This one is certainly different than the typical pale lager, seems pretty focused on sweet maltiness, it’s not got much adjunct character, the hops are spicy and herbal... obviously there’s not a lot of them in there. There’s a weird apple skin thing happening in there as well.
I wouldn’t turn one down... that’s for sure.

Special Export from Milwaukee, Wi, lol. $5.49 for a six pack of 16oz cans. Figured what the heck I can rate one and have others in the fridge for those late nights you want a beer or during a game, but don’t need a 2-3$ craft beer. It’s not offensive, very slight light fruit on nose, no real bad aftertaste like some adjuncts, really not too bad for what it is and the price.

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of skunk, grains, and malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is just another in the line of pale lagers.

GABF 2013. Poured out of a fucken can a clear light golden appearance with a thin white head. Twangy, lemon corny aroma. Moderately watery, a bit sweet, fizzy, grassy flavor. Not horrible but certainly not as good as some of the other Pabst products.

Can. Pretty much PBR. Rather unpleasant. Not many redeeming characteristics.

Bottle. Pale yellow urine like colour. True European taste profile, ja, as die Europeer is ’n perd. Faint aroma, skunky from the green bottle. Flavour totally unmemorable. No finish

12 oz. can shared by RapeBeer and his brother, who brought a case to Dark Lord Day. Thanks, Nick and Karl! Pours a clear, pale gold with a small fizzy white head. Corn, pale and sweet malts, grass, straw- no skunk, really, thanks to the can instead of a green bottle. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not terrible. Not good, but not terrible.
