O my Lord. How do you really rate the beer of yer indigent youth without bias.

This was my default, O my brothers. My go-to, my backup. Others have Pabst, others have Rolling Rock, others have Yuengling, but mine was MGD.

I have had too many good times on the back end of an MGD to rate it any lower than a 2, but too much presence of mind to rate it any higher.

This is swill. There's no two ways about it. But, O my brothers, in the early to mid 1990s, it had the moniker "genuine", which was enough to sell it to a dork like me.

One night, one glorious night in the relative innocence of the 1990s I got picked up in a bar in Wisconsin after having ten of these by a VERY pretty girl, despite being myself utterly average in every regard, with no effort whatsoever expended on my part, and for that reason, MGD always has a home in my home when push comes to shove.

But it's really awful beer, truth to be told. I wouldn't buy this on purpose in a scenario short of the zombie apocalypse.

Terrible smell followed by terrible flavor that has an evil, God-awful bite to it. Avoid at all costs!

MGD will always be my highest rated big brewery beer. When I was young, Miller Lite was my go to beer. I eventually graduated to MGD due to the amount of taste and how smooth and drinkable it was. I do tend to not drink it anymore because if I’m out partying I tend to go to Miller Lite because it is easier for me to watch my alcohol intake.
