This is the worst beer on the market. Better off drinking piss.

Geezer beer.

Being a geezer myself, I know whereof I speak. Sometimes I think Miller has a basic beer that is packaged and sold under different labels for those of us who tend to buy "our brand" over and over. Nothing wrong with this package, light color, flavor, clean fizzy beer for when you want to drink a beer without analyzing it.

Buy when it's on sale which happens often.

Clarity is excellent. Golden straw color with lots of bubbles. Nice head of creamy off white foam that lasted well. Practically no nose. Low malty presence on the nose that becomes more grainy as it warms. Faint hint of dms. No hops presence on the nose at all. Light fruity ester from yeast. No diacetyl. Taste is light and I mean thin. Light corn sweetness. It has low malty flavor, some dms, a little bite from bubble and low to no hops presence on the palate. There is a good balance and a finishing bitterness. This malt is crisp and very thin. No diacetyl.

This brings back memories of working at Lake Timberline. I used to go to Barney's Mini mart and pick up 40's of this, then at the liquor store I worked at. Color is pale straw. Head seemed to collapse on itself. Smell was adjuncts. Taste was corny with some cereal. Pretty inoffensive.

Pours a moderate/good foam head, depending on the aggressiveness of the pour. It dissipates quickly enough.
Has a pale-straw -yellow color. Not bad, average, not a "nice" color.
From the can it has the average cheap AAL smell, but once in a glass it has a sweet, corn like fragrance to it.
Tastes is better than I expected for the price. Reminds me or corn, maybe even grains. Has a flavor to it. Not watery.
Has a smooth feel to it, with a minor aftertaste. Light to moderate carbonation.

Overall, for the price, it's better than I expected, not watery like others of its kind, not overly carbonated, the taste itself isn't poor, but not to everyones liking, similar to Coors in my opinion.

Still don't have an taste for this beer because it's an acquired taste. My grandpa drank it often after working all day in the fields. He told me in Vietnam the good beer would go quick and all that was left was PBR. He told me after 2 years of PBR he came home and enjoyed Milwaukee's Best and swore he'd never drink blue ribbon beer. I respect my grandfather enough that when hands me a Milwaukee's best I feel honored to drink a beer with him no matter what brand, and it an honor!
