12oz can 4/5/13 Retro Brand Mixed Six (Binny’s Plainfield)-40° in Mug-Pours a clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This is another crappy light lager. crossovert (13742) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2011
It sucks, but don’t all light lagers? The difference is that this one is cheap as hell. There is no reason not to buy this over bmc. VAAC (86) - Middlebury, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Boring, apart from it’s unusually acidic taste. Other than that, nothing seperating it from any other bargain bin 10$ for a 30 pack hog wash. Smells like it’s been fermenting in the back window of someone’s car. cheap (6011) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2008
From a silver and blue 12 oz can. Ubiquitous color. Every tilt of the glass yields a small roll of visible carbonation, of course with very slight lacing. Has an almost processed rubbing alky aroma about it and that bouquet is mixed in with the typical Melanie cheap beer smells. Good quality tingly carbonation. Taste is bearable for this brand. It must be the water they use over there, allot of the Melanie brews carry that same discernable flavor. You know, the metallic processed background. Not nearly as bad as jaguar but it is still there. Not enough to trigger the gag reflex, yet. Fifty-four cents a can. Finish is manageable but it leaves a weird cardboard sensation unlike coors NA. This is a one time case deal. Unimpressive but cheap. Read Franks’s rating below. MIL CLASSIC LIGHT S3L1F3T4O9 JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 1, 2008
Election night and April Fools all together. Pale straw color with a nice white fizzy head. Perhaps everything is better because most of my candidates are winning. No not really. Lots of corn and a touch of grain and husk in the aroma. Quite weak. Alcohol and touch of metal i it warms ever so slightly. I see one of the races tighten. This stinks.

this is just as bad as any of the other Classics, just slightly less bad for you if you don’t count the damage done to your taste buds. jt46 (1) - USA - SEP 11, 2007 does not count
One word describes this beer, terrible. Not one good thing can be said about it, not even the look of the can. But in all fairness, funds are tight, and it is beer, so I’ll drink it. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Under-rated for a light beer. Given that it is crap but it does not taste much worse than most lower end light beers. Only good in great quantities. Frank (4225) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2006
I’ve rated over a thousand beers on this here site and have come to the conclusion that the very cheapest beers are frequently the most fun. Take this lovely slice of ass for example: the mere challenge of trying not to wince upon first tasting this is enough but if you should succeed you have the added fun of convincing your friends to try it too. Of course, if they see the face you truly want to make, it’s a lost cause; you will likely have some difficulty convincing them not to call the paramedics.
In the end what we have here is a remarkably bad example of a cheap American beer. What ultimately should be flavorless and inoffensive comes across as flavorless and offensive. It’s the worst of all worlds folks. But it’s cheap as nuts so it comes highly recommended from yours truly. twindadplus2 (732) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2005
One of the worst lights I’ve had. Yellow with a small head. Aroma of grain and yeast. The taste was what really killed it though; incredibly sweet combined with a sour taste that I just couldn’t stomach.
