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.

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!

Pretty nasty stuff. I wouldn't try it again, and you should not either.
Pours a nasty looking piss yellow with no head and no lacing.
Smells like water with some sugar and vinegar added.
Tastes like wastewater. Some fake hops additive for slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel is cheap and messy.
Not drinkable.

A: Pale yellow. Lots of carbonation, no head.

S: Cereal grains, not much else, pretty much nothing.

T: Crisp with a small malt hint. Clean but uninteresting, cheap hop usage that gives some slight bitterness.

M: Coarse and harsh.

O: Not very good, a pretty crummy beer. As expected for the price.

Do your self the favor: just go buy some budweiser and drink that if you'r looking to get drunk. this just isnt worth it. really. piss colour with no head, smells like a chicken's feeding pan. taste? I'd rather scald my mouth with boiling coffee than drink this again. shit, I'd rather rinse my mouth with tequila than have to ever drink this on a regular basis.

After taking a quick look at the other reviews here I have to laugh. In college I thought this was the worst beer I'd ever had, and keep in mind, I was pretty familiar with beer at that point (Watney's Red Barrel, John Courage, Bass, Guinness, Whitbread, Mooshead, Molson, Labatt's, Bud-Miller-Coors, Heineken, Grolsch, etc.). I didn't mind cheap beer, but Meister Brau got to me. And, not unlike other reviewers, I find it the same today. I've probably had other beers that were just as cheaply made, but I can't think of any of them now (perhaps Old Style). So what is it? Well, it's just that there's so much adjunct in use. It's got that sweetness to it. And there are next to no hops. It's almost like the alcohol balances it. Well, at least tries to balance it. I recently saw someone question on-line "What happens if you make beer without hops"? "What's it like?" "Has anyone tried it?" ... I guess whomever came up with this one did! But that's not the real problem. The real problem is that it's clearly fermented pretty fast and hot. It's got a lot of yeasty fruitiness to it. And, I think, some higher alcohols. But on the up side, it's inexpensive.

Again, taking a trip back to high school. $1.99 a 12-pack. I should have know better. Funny, it still costs the same today. Open it up, and ouch, B.O. veggie and metal aroma blends to form vomit. Pours clear gold with a sad, bubbly white head. Tasting... and confirmed ass. Tart, sour, metallic, veggie-and-sugar concoction. I am an idiot.

Oh the innocence of youth. The taste of this stuff is going to become permanently infused into my memory.

A: Pale yellow with a fizzy white head that doesn't retain well. Clarity is good. Active carbonation from big bubbles.

S: Not much to smell. What little smell there is consists of corn grits and a little dry malt.

T: Only consume this ice cold. Doesn't taste like much of anything at ~35 degrees F or lower. If it warms, it becomes face wincing bad, as the flavors of corn grits, cooked cabbage and wet cardboard seep in. Things only go downhill from there. Bitterness is there for the whole ride, with a weighty metallic flavor that's bolstered by the beer's fizz. Finishes clean if ice cold. If not, residual flavors of metal and corn grits linger for far too long in the mouth.

M: Light body is super fizzy.

D: Not worth another visit. A truly terrible beer.
