Notes on this brew:
Brewed with dirty gym socks, and pigfeed corn.
May be paired with industrial cleaner to strengthen its effect
A bold drink for the new generation of "trailer trash" and college kids with no money
May be mistook for grape soda due to the ridiculous purple can. That's how they trick you into accidentally drinking it.

Serving type: can

Look, I don't know what everyone is bashing...this shit costs like $10 for a 30 pack what do you expect? Golden ambrosia served in a chalice while angels whistle on your dong?
For less than $.50 a can, I don't think this is a bad beer at all; perfect for games and casual drinking (and I'd take it over bud light any day of the week). Is this a connoisseur's beer? Hell no! It's made to get a person buzzed and save a few bucks. The taste and carbonation remind me of Miller Lite or Coors light..leaning more towards Coors. There is a slight aftertaste which I don't experience in the pricier pisswater ranges...but honestly; I stopped noticing after the second can. Smells and looks like cheap beer to me! Mouthfeel is right up there with any other light beer. Taste is like I said, somewhere between Miller and Coors slightly sweeter and with a short, dirty aftertaste. Of course it's not top-notch, but look at that price tag! Red Dog isn't even this cheap most of the time and that's one of two beers (along with side pocket) that are undrinkable to me. It's not as sweet nor as nasty and off-putting as some of the ones that there are for the same amount of money in my area (Boxer, Lost Lake, Red Dog, Side Pocket, any HG product, Icehouse, etc). Support a Wisconsin brewery and save a few bucks while your at it for your next drinking game or beer bong-off.
For the record: Fav beers are: Alaskan Amber and Wisconsin Brewery's Porter Joe.

As far as cheap beer goes, you cannot go wrong with Beer 30 light. Sometimes when I'm half a 30 rack in I wonder if God himself crafted this delectable beverage. Whenever I'm craving a taste of perfect I pour myself a pint. I have to take a little bit of time to thank my father for exposing me to Beer 30 fourteen years ago. On a drunken post-deerhunting cruise through northern Wisconsin, I pulled into a bar and casually asked the bartender for his finest refreshment under fifty cents. I honestly wasn't expecting much until the color purple hit my taste buds.

Whether you are looking to have a night filled with class or you are drinking to forget, Beer 30 is the only choice. Unless you want to drink a crappy, subpar beer, then stay away from Beer 30. Make sure your expectations are high before cracking a cold one, the sheer shock of unexpected amazingness may kill you.
