I have one of these left sitting lonely at the back of the fridge. Thought I'd take time to give it a fair shot.

Appearance (N/A) - poured into glass. One small ring of lacing that's almost invisible. It disappears into a tiny bubbled carbonation circle. As far as beer is concerned, this one fails at appearance. But, considering most aren't going to be pouring this into a pint glass (and I don't know who in their right mind would serve this on tap, I'm going to give it an N/A score.

Smell (1.5) - Stale cornbread, malts, and mildewy barn grain. Some artificial adjunct dextrin, as well. Bouquet is very weak.

Taste (2) - Very cornbready. Stale malt and corn husks. It's dry.

Mouthfeel (2) - Very fizzy. Refreshing though. Easy to drink if you're guzzling it down for hydration.

Overall (1.87) - Bud 55 is truly a light beer cut in half. 2.4% ABV, 55 calories. As a beer it is not a shining example. For a quick refresher or something light with lunch, it goes well. It's guaranteed to not offend, and it drinks easy. It has its place, although it's not as good as Miller 64.

While I am still questing to knock out as many of the Beers of Fame as I possibly can, it is also interesting to review the Bottom of the Barrel beers, the anti-Beers of Fame. These are some the most awful beers known to mankind. I will not put as much effort into these reviews as I would a legitimate brew, but it is still fun nonetheless.

This beer pours the color of watered down urine. Side poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Has a nasty, soapy head that goes from huge to nonexistent very quickly. Smells like metal shavings. Tastes like it looks, I wish it tasted like it smelled. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated, almost nonexistent. Overall, a terrible attempt at making beer drinking a healthy past time. Just like turkey bacon sucks, so does this beer.

This tastes like some sort of slightly alcoholic, grainy water. It is the most tasteless beer I have ever encountered. If you want to avoid carbs and calories, and also like lower alcohol levels, and also do not care AT ALL about taste, than this is your beer. If you care about taste, this is simply not on the table.
