lwaukee Best pours to a clear yellow. the smell is nothing new to me just your typical of cook vegetables and grains . It does not bother me! Taste like a typical american lager grains and malts. The hops are their to balance the beer out . It has very tiny taste of cardboard if warm but other the that milkwaulees best can hold its own against high price Budwesier , MGD. Your typical american lager with out the price tags. It is the lowest price beer in most market in the country You can take the label off Milwaukee Best Premium beer an put a Coors or MGD label on this beer and 99 percent of the people would not know they would be drinking a cheap beer. This beer is excellent for what it is american adjunct lager. I rate Milwukee Best Preuim with other maerican adjunct lagers an apples with apples rating . Meaning I rate Milwaukee best Preuim with other american lager . IThis beer beats out 95 percent of american lagers out their on the market specially Mexical lagers with their high price . Milkwaulee Best Premium is the best value on market for taste , price and quality. (1,103 characters)

I used to drink this in high school when it first came out and good thing I didn't know any better. It is still one of the weakest tasting beers out there. It is cheap so if your beer budget is $10 per month this might be the beer for you. (239 characters)

Pours a nice golden color with a nice head that lingers. Smells quite putrid like most other adjunct lagers. Goes down smooth, but a little bitter on the palate. Not much flavor but not bad either. Overall not bad for a adjunct lager. (234 characters)

A: Extremely pale coming out of the can. Sloppy pour into a glass produced frothy bubbles but faded to nothing fast. I've seen Coca-cola with longer lasting head.

S: Nothing noteworthy. No discernible hops. No malts. No skunkiness. Nothing. Just a sort of "cheap beer" smell.

T: After experiencing the appearance and smell, I was a little surprised that the flavor profile didn't strictly follow the smell. There is actually a hint of sweetness that can be found through the shallow taste; not maltiness - just a minor sweetness. Not sure what it is.

M&D: Smooth - like water. Not much here. Nothing particularly attractive about this beer accept for the price - and then you still find yourself weighing the pros & cons. (724 characters)

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Presentation: 40 oz brown bottle, no freshness date or anything else about the beer on the label.

Appearance: Pale golden straw colour, very clear and bright. Lean white lace skims on the top of the brews.

Smell: Astringent grain and cooked cereal adjuncts are all that are in the aroma. Not very appealing.

Taste: Light bodied with grain and cooked corn flavours. Thin malt flavour with a touch of sweetness, quite weak to say the least. Hops are used up and just there for a processed bitterness. Slight impression of alcohol, graininess gets husky and bitty on the palate. Somewhat dry and still grainy in the finish.

Notes: A very sub-premium lager, you know it is cheap crappy beer when they are selling it for $1.75 for a 40 oz bottle. A bit hard to put down and not very clean … a rough around the edges cheap lager. (841 characters)

This is very cheap, and the taste shows as such. Excessive graininess (corn) gives this a harsh, bitter taste. Lots of carbonation. Very dry, with only a hint of malt aftertaste. The overall taste is of adjuncts and played out crappy ingredients. This is crap beer at it's best. (278 characters)

12 ounce can sampled, yeah now we are livin' large. Only cost me .60 cents in that beer rip off zone known as Grand Central station in NYC (Duane Reade also has Heineken for $1.30 a bottle...)Pours the expected light pissy yellow, medium bubble head, snow white. Nose of corn, very light bodied and quite watery. Next to no malt or hops noted. Crisp and cleansing of the palate,slight metalic note. Only decent on a very hot day (428 characters)

The BEAST! Easily the best of the worst. Pours clear yellow with a big white head. Aroma is metallic and veggie, kind of canned beans. Some B.O. in the nose, and a bit funky in the taste. More veggie and grass, some actual bitter hops, and pale malt. Its bad, but not atrocious (277 characters)

Huuurl. Used to get these 15.5 gal kegs for $29.99 at Discount Liquors for our Marquette Final Four parties in 2003.

Looks like someone spilled beer in your water. Smells like water and old couch cushions that had nasty beer spilled on them.

Taste, well, I can't say its the worst thing I've ever had. Not much to speak of, the usual corn/rice adjunct lite feel.

Mouthfeel, there's really nothing to grasp onto. Drinkability, it gets a bump up because its cheap, and people do drink it really fast, because its like water. (528 characters)

Alright welcom to college, this beer packs a pale yellow golden tone with a white vibrant tone thin fizzy and fastly disipating. Aromatics is thin mild not too astringent but packed chalk full of cooked veggies adjuncts. Slightly sweet carbonated water no real flavor this beer is such a mass produced swill beer, I haven't drank it since high school keg parties wow I haven't missed a thing. Flavor has no hops to be detected cheap and drinkable in quantity thin as water in texture and taste never buy it if you really want beer. (531 characters)

For the sake of experimentation, I'm holding a little tasting of beers I happened to have but would never purchase myself.

This one is what's typically referred to as "straw yellow," pale and clear. It bubbles like crazy and never stops. The pure white head actually sits around a finger tall for a bit before dropping off, leaving a soapy foam and a smattering of spotty lacing. I've seen considerably worse.
The nose is an extremely faint corn husk and grains. There's practically nothing here, and what is certainly isn't very good.
It tastes like blandness. There's absolutely no point to this beer. Corn and grains come out faintly in the finish. Poorly made. At least there's nothing overtly offensive.
Light. Extremely light. Crisp. A little slick. Smoothish. The feel could certainly be worse.
It's pretty much what I expected. (836 characters)
