Mass produced straw yellow bmc aal type here, maybe a little darker since you've seen a lot of light beers in your time. Funny they don't call them diet beers.

Taste is rough, harsh alcohol way bigger than it need to be, corn sweetener thinned out, rubbing alcohol and nail polish remover at times. Bitter. No hop taste, just bitterness.

Back in college, when you could get a case of these bottles for about $6, the only way you could consume them was via beer bong. That way, the taste could be avoided, allowing the alcohol to reach the bloodstream without being rejected involuntarily by your body.

Once, on a lark, I took a big swig from a bottle instead. This was 24 years ago, but I still remember what registered in my brain as this swill hit my taste buds: Purple.

A few minutes later, I was puking.

Used to drink this a lot in high school. Very affordable. Very bad tasting.

This beer was (I'm guessing) about 10 years old...and one of the better awful beer I've had.

I find it odd that people are calling this beer horrible or that only stupid kids drank it. This is the same beer that you can buy today, it is called Miller Lite. Miller Lite has won gold metals at least 4 times and numerous other awards. With that being said, I recall this beer being very popular with the party crowd, it was always at my family gatherings as we had close ties to Chicago, where Meister Brau was made prior to being purchased by Miller.
