look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Appearance: Odd yellow color reminds me of weak urine. Foam is mediocre and non durable. Forgettable appearance, and this is probably the best part of this beer.

Smell: What smell? Apart from a slight odor (that might well have been the cat litter), there isn't much character to this brew.

Taste: Some fizz, some water, more water, food coloring, and perhaps some cigarette butts. Mix well. Add soap suds. Completely regrettable, but hardly forgettable for its sheer awfulness.

Mouthfeel: Water comes to mind, although water is smoother.

Drinkability: If there was a zero, I would score this beer. I gagged my way through one, and drained another. Even the drain complained about this beer.

I'm sorry -- I'm sure this beer has its fans out there, but to me, this was the single worst beer I've ever experienced.

Blatz
12 oz bottle
Medium pour in a shot glass
Recent brewing, splatzed 12/06

Poured a clear light yellow with an average fizzy quickly diminishing head.

Smelt of moderate cooked corn and metal.

Taste was upfront moderate sweet cooked corn and stale grain followed by crap. Palate was light bodied, watery to dry, fizzy, and grossly metallic.

Overall, it's cheap and the name is funny. If you think these are good points, then you are an underage easily susceptible underage drinker or a dimwit who shouldn't be reading this, not only by their ability to read, by by their lack of tastebuds.

look: 1 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

A: No head. Heavy carbonation. Pale-depressing yellowish.

S: Surprisingly only smells a little bit like malt. Reminds me of the inside of a macro-brewery.

T: Mildew, old canned corn.

M: Ultra carbonated with no other enjoyable aspects.

D: Didn't finish it. Not good.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.5

Reviewed from notes.

Straw yellow with a respectable looking foamy white head. Poor retention and not much lacing. Smells and tastes like grain and corn. Somewhat sweet and musty. Feels thin and watery. Not something I care to try again.

Okay, Blatz is not much different then Schlitz and some of the others. If your into a cheap beer, I suppose you could do worse, but maybe try others before you decide, like Pabst and others.

Man, this is some crappy beer. No head, little or no color, and the big suprise * POOR FLAVOR*! I couldn't tell if i was drinking tree bark, dog urine, or burned steak. In any case, i would say skip this stuff. Not one of the better Heilemann brews i'm afraid.
