After one of these, I got a splitting headache. However, I decided it might be a good way to restore my silverware, and lo and behold, it took off all the crap that had collected on my antique spoons. Basically, this is Drain-O. I am halfway through my second and it is the most godawful experience of my life. It's just a sad, sad beer.

Pours a crystal clear yellow color, highly filtered, highly carbonated, fizz head dies out quickly leaving behind occasional lacing.

Smells like a typical macro lager, grain, corn, some sweetness in the minimal malt profile. Kind of dry on the palate, carbonation is sizzling, stinging.

Notes: blah blah blah....these adjunct tasting brews get really old. Why do I continue to buy them? as the blues brothers would say..."I'm on a mission from god"...all beers will be tasted...Amen.

poured from bottle into clear glass goblet

appearnce is standard yello macro. lifeless. almost no head, no lacing at all. smell is also typicial of an american macro, plus an addition of something rotting on the tail end. taste starts off like an american adjuct macro, rice/corn.... but finished slightly skunky and stale tasting. is this a bad bottle? mouthfeel is hard to describe but terrible. watery and a strange low carbonation. drinkability.... not a drain pour but i was suffering threw all 12 ozs

Not quite sure what this is supposed to be. Had in a bottle - perhaps it was too old. Nonetheless, it had an unbearable sour flavor with no real redeeming quality. Very light body - which was expected - but the flavor missed on all marks. It's too bad, as very few cream ale crafts are on the market.

A good friend of mine is hosting a "bad beer contest" in the near future and this beer is on the shortlist to bring to the contest. I understand that to some people it's an important regional beer with a lot of sentimental value (which is why I don't give a lot of Milwaukee beers the reaming they deserve), but it is quite simply awful.

Appearance: The only part that isn't offensive. The color is slightly off-putting (piss "golden"), but it has excellent head retention, teasing people into thinking it's a substantive beer.

Smell: Not much to speak of. A very faint fruity aroma that probably comes from one of the Pacific Northwest hops.

Taste: Awful. What little flavor it has is sickly sweet and lingers on the tongue forever in the form of a foul aftertaste common to bad American beers. Probably nothing but lightly roasted malts and hardly any hop flavor to speak of.

Mouthfeel: Disgusting. It's syrupy and lingers on the tongue forever. Something else is required to cleanse your palate if you want to get the disgusting aftertaste off your tongue.

Drinkability: I'm barely able to finish one. I can't think of anything it would go with. I can't imagine enjoying it during a ballgame. And I certainly can't picture myself enjoying it over the course of an evening at the bar.

It's rare that don't finish a beer. Even beers I don't like I can finishe but this was not one of them. Maybe I had a bad can. It tasted metallic and very amateurish. This not a complex beer at all. I would rather drink a bud than take another sip of this. Not recommended at all.
