24 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 7/16/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Solid robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not overly fruity. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly bready/grainy, and lightly sticky hop mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a decent pale adjunct lager style. Solidly flavorful for the ABV. Nice clean malt/grains and decent earthy hop balance. Was a bit too heavy on the corn, but definitely enjoyable for the style.

The beer has a noticable pungent smell to it. Drinking the beer, you can taste it as well, very off-putting. The body is light and watery, with a strong nasty after taste. You'll need to drink a few of these before you can get over the gross taste of the beer. It's a good thing this is a budget beer.

You can get hamms or pabst for about the same price. Either of those are better than this, but if this is all that's available then at least it is drinkable.

Poured from giant can into giant pils glass. Crystal-clear straw color with a fee fingers of soft, white head that dissolves quickly. No lacing. Sweet aroma, some grain, some grass. Surprisingly full flavor, not what I was expecting. Can this be the same beer I pounded as an undergrad years and years ago? Sweet bread and grain with some grassy hop notes. Thin feel. Much better than a few other cheap AALs out there in my opinion.

I am drinking the 3.2 abw (4.0 abv) version of Milwaukee’s best, due to Oklahoma laws. It’s a cheaper macro beer so it is, what it is. It tastes sweeter than other cheap macros. Other than that it’s just a run of the mill macro American style lager. If you are on a budget and want to try something other than Keystone or Busch, give it a drink!

Okay this is cheap beer, but it is what it is. I got this for around 9 bucks a case. Drink it AFTER you have a few or more good beers and it's not that bad. Wait until your taste buds are insensitive. Yes, it's pretty nasty.

I live in Milwaukee. I've tried literally everything. This beer is a small step above urine.

32 oz. can:

Pours golden with a short-lived head. Little to no lacing.

The smell is faint. Nothing really. Barely even a generic "beer" aroma.

The taste is of very light, watered down bread. Not too sweet. No bitterness. Nothing really. Abrupt watery finish.

It is as refreshing as cool, crisp water. Typical cheap beer water quality.

It's a cheap beer. There are better cheap beers. There are worse. Inoffensive as a whole.

A friend/neighbor gave this to me today. For the price I paid, not terrible. For the price it goes for...could be worse.

I really thought I had reviewed this when I lived in Milwaukee. Guess I never put the review in.

Light straw yellow with a billowy head. Smells is sweet corn, malts, rice, faint hops. Taste follows the nose. Very crisp and clean with good carb. Has a bite going down. Some slight alcohol presence. Definitely a solid choice for what it is. I prefer this over Bud, Miller, Pabst, Rolling Rock, Heineken. At $6.99 a 12 pack, how can you go wrong?
