A - Very clear yellow with a huge adjunct style white head. Left no lacing.

S - Skunk, sour malt, A bit of creamed corn and rice soon follows.

T - Slight creamed corn is virtually the whole flavor. At least it tastes like something.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation.

O - Overall, Probably the best out of the " Milwaukee " series. I'd have at a party.

I'm going to break convention, and review this beer even though I have been to this site more than once. (shuddup man, BEAST rulez! I give it a 5.0 ! ) Take note, I am currently a college senior and I have been waltzing in craft brew wonderland for nearly a year. I now routinely buy $30 cases of interesting micros and actually find it painful to consume this and other $8/ case $35/ keg beers with my drunken cohorts on the weekends. Anyways, Beast is nothing special. Pours a very thin white head off the kegerator in my living room. Roomates insit upon it, even though I have swindled an occasional keg of Boston Ale or other closeout special in there. Light yellow color, stale grain nose, abdundant carbonation. Not as watery as other super cheap macro lights and certainly drinkable when served cold. Allow it to warm on a table while playing drinking games, and it becomes 'open your gullet and suck' drinkable. What can one say? There's a market for this beer, and it is enjoyed by many. I wish I could enlighten some of these folks and show them the pleasures of a weizenbock or an imperial stout, but alas, beer appreciation is something that one arrives at on his own accord. Cheers to all, and enjoy your drink, whethter it be a plastic cup of Beast light or a goblet of Westvleteren 12.

Not much of an appearance with about a 1" head that quickly disappears. Smells like watered down...water beer. Taste like a normal american pilsner which lacks much flavor or imagination. Really crisp and tastes pretty much how it smells and looks. Let's face it, this is a drinking game beer so leave it for the tailgates or beer pong. Unless of course it's free, then the "free beer" rule applies. Not super offensive but not very good. I could live the rest of my days without ever drinking this again. "Free Beer" rule does not apply here.

Pale gold and stinky. Right off the bat we must mention that this beer has only one purpose. Drinking mass quantities at extremely low prices. This is the ultimate college campus beer. And considering its purpose it's not that bad. It's pale, no head, doesn't smell good, watery, tastes like nothing with a touch of maltyness, blah blah blah. That doesn't matter. It's ten bucks a 30 pack. 98 calories and 3.5 carbs a piece. with a decent 4.5% alcohol. It's tolerable enough. 18-23 years-olds across America Should love this beer. I did a dozen years ago. I miss those days.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

A: Pours with an abundant head after a vigourous pour... Bright white, with a straw gold body.

S: Not much at all. Water, very very pale malt and a slightly grainy corn/2 row base. Slightly fruity/twangy lager yeast.

T: Water with an odd corn-like sourness. Creamed corn, ghostly pale malt. No hop bitterness to be detected--the sourness from the corn takes its place. Closest description is if you took a a tsp full of a can of creamed corn and diluted it in water, and added carbonation. Not too offensive, but terrible as even a light lager.

M: Extremely watery and lively carbonation.

D: No taste (Or at least a very slight and undesirable taste) and goes down like water. Horrendous.
