look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Pours a faint straw like appearance, like you spilled BMC into a half empty glass of water. It really looks vapid. The aroma is offputting, metallic and paint stripperesque.

The taste, is even worse, there's no body to absorb any of the metallic harsh bitterness. There's no mouthfeel for malt or hops. Its just like really bitter water that was kept in a mining pit with a bunch of rusted copper wire left strewn about. It can't even really be seen as a thirst quencher, because you kind of need something else to get the retched taste out of your mouth afterwards. This stuff gets especially evil after it warms beyond 40 degrees, watch out. The alcohol is extremely pronounced, there's nothing to cover it up. Shots of vodka with a penny in the shot glass. This could be the worst beer ever made.

Its the week of reinstating old reviews! Meister Brau definitely ranked in the top 10 most frequently drank back in the early 90s. #1 beer confiscated by the cops in Vacaville, CA in that tme period as well. $3 a 12 pack. Thanks cousin Bill!

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

Pours a clean/clear pale yellow color, some carbonation, with a one-finger white head, with some minimal sticky lacing. The nose is grainy/ricy at best. The taste is slightly sweet, grainy, and ricy. Light Body, not much going on here. What a waste of water.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Poured the palest and clearest yellow imaginable, big fizzy white head faded immediatly to leave just really nothing. Lots of chains of bubbles littered throughout, but this was just soo damn clear. Smell did not exist, at least I couldn't smell one, don't know if that is good or bad in this case, so thats really all I can comment on. Taste again was non existent, maybe a slight taste of corn or grain, but really I was dumbfounded as there was really no taste. Was slick, smooth going down. Tasted like ice cold water and I could see why people drink so much, they are trying to find the taste!
