Have you guys ever seen that movie with the dude who gets all mad and turns into a more jacked up dude that's kinda green? Yea? Well drinking Milwaukee's Best (Beast) is kinda like that but less green. Seriously I've never been to Milwaukee, but if this is what their beer is like it's probably a great place. Smooth, really, really crisp - balanced and well hopped. I'd say the abv is a little low for my purposes but when you're out with the boys it gets the job done. UNLEASH THE BEAST.

32oz aluminum can with generic label purchased at a gas station in Texas and served into a pilsner glass at low altitude in Austin, Texas. Reviewed live.

Expectations are low given the brewery. Served cold. Side-poured fairly gently as overcarbonation issues are anticipated.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: Four fingers in width. White in colour. Okay thickness. Not much creaminess. Decent frothiness. Retention is above average - about 3 minutes. No lacing sticks to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

BODY: Clear watery yellow. Dull and bleak. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible within. Appears overcarbonated.

It's not a good looking beer by any means, but it's not awful looking either. Certainly average for the style.

AROMA: Pilsner malts, light buttery notes, and generic bland floral hop character. There's some graininess too. Doesn't have the metallic character I was expecting, but there does seem to be far too much sweetness.

It's an unpleasant but inoffensive aroma of average strength.

No yeast character, alcohol, spices, or egregious fof-notes are detectable.

TASTE: Graininess, pilsner malts, insipid floral hop character, a hint of metallic off-character, diacetyl-redolent buttery off-notes, off-putting sweetness, corn, cereals, and assorted off-notes I don't care to bother trying to identify.

No yeast character, pleasant hop notes, spices, or overt alcohol comes through.

Painfully simple. Imbalanced, poorly built, incohesive, and unpleasant. I don't like it much, but it's not the worst light lager I've had.

TEXTURE: Artificial. Metallic. Lightly coarse. Wet. Stale. Light-bodied. Off-puttingly buttery. Unrefreshing.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, or harsh.

It's a trainwreck of a mouthfeel for a light lager, but it's not unendurable.

OVERALL: I've had worse. I definitely wouldn't pick this up again, and I'd caution others from trying it, but it's not poorly priced per se. I guess.
