Obtained via a joke from a waitress at the Brickskellar. I told her, "Bring me either La Fin du Monde or B to the effin' E, please, for I must go clubbin' later on and I must party hard." Well, I didn't exactly say that, but she was amused enough by mine antics to provide the table (consisting of me, Dave, and Gusterfan) with a can which would otherwise go unsold for I highly doubt this offering will sell at all at the Brick. Further proof Mr. Alexander is on kracq, Bob-bless him.
Onto lez bier.
Appearance: Well, I wasn't precisely certain what to expect from this substance visually, but it poured out an über-pale yellow that was crystal clear. Reminiscent of Ultra in color and head retention. Basically, it looks like ginger ale.
Smell: Skittles!!! Artificial fruit flava. "Citrusy" in toto. Crack open either a Red Bull or a pack of aforementioned candy and you get the idea. No aromas of anything traditionally associated with beer.
Taste: Kinda sweet/tart. Other than the initial Willy Wonka like splash of candy goodness, that's it. Doesn't taste bad, but it's far from good. I'm reminded of a guarana-laced hyper-caffeinated bevvie I used to have once in awhile called, I shit you not, Bawls. One of these woke you up, the second sent you to detox. This tastes exactly like it. Regretfully, I can't say it tastes like Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls. That would be at least be an improvement.
Mouthfeel: Honestly, the biggest dissapointment. Overly watery, like a slightly flat club soda.
Drinkability: I shudder to think that I might potentially meet the peeps this drink is marketed to. I can more than handle Joe Macro-pack... but the B-to-tha-mutha-effin'-E drinker needs to be shot before they breed.
Other: Anyone need used glowsticks and an Underworld CD?

The only reason I loved & still love this cute little beer was because of it's uncanny ability to accompany summer-time 'get-togethers' of all shapes & sizes and the ever resultant broken property this beer seemed to always make sure of. Clearly, this is not a beer snobs beer. It was not a mythical creation discovered on the 1,000th attempt of some poor bastards accidental recipe, nor was it the product of love, hard work, dedication or the culmination of expertise. This beer was the product of a corporate knee-jerk reaction towards a seemingly ancient marketing strategy that somehow went right. This beer has a following that might rival Surge soda... so those of us who love it are all either Juggalos in denial, caffeine crazy pre-teens pretending to be beer lovers, or simply liked the stuff. Too bad its gone. But, oh well.

I remember when this came out. Always called this B to E. From what I remember this was a fruity drink. It was not bad. It is a shame that they don't brew it anymore. I kind of like it on a hot day. This was a Budweiser engery beer/ drink only came in 10oz cans.

It was one of the best beers I've ever tasted, it smelled good and it to affect after about 4 bottles. I think stores should start selling them again, with the same price.
Its nothing negative about this beer. I love the raspberry taste, the energy drink mixed in beer was great.
