Pours a faint straw like appearance, like you spilled BMC into a half empty glass of water. It really looks vapid. The aroma is offputting, metallic and paint stripperesque.

The taste, is even worse, there's no body to absorb any of the metallic harsh bitterness. There's no mouthfeel for malt or hops. Its just like really bitter water that was kept in a mining pit with a bunch of rusted copper wire left strewn about. It can't even really be seen as a thirst quencher, because you kind of need something else to get the retched taste out of your mouth afterwards. This stuff gets especially evil after it warms beyond 40 degrees, watch out. The alcohol is extremely pronounced, there's nothing to cover it up. Shots of vodka with a penny in the shot glass. This could be the worst beer ever made.

Its the week of reinstating old reviews! Meister Brau definitely ranked in the top 10 most frequently drank back in the early 90s. #1 beer confiscated by the cops in Vacaville, CA in that tme period as well. $3 a 12 pack. Thanks cousin Bill!

Do your self the favor: just go buy some budweiser and drink that if you'r looking to get drunk. this just isnt worth it. really. piss colour with no head, smells like a chicken's feeding pan. taste? I'd rather scald my mouth with boiling coffee than drink this again. shit, I'd rather rinse my mouth with tequila than have to ever drink this on a regular basis.

Yep, its been while since I downed a container of this swill.
It may have taken a few times but I learned my lesson. Hangover in a can, guaranteed!
It is an artificial yellow color, with a weak and short lived foam.
Smell and taste are the same if that makes sense. Like the inside of a cheap aluminum can, subtle, stale rice notes.

Pretty nasty stuff. I wouldn't try it again, and you should not either.
Pours a nasty looking piss yellow with no head and no lacing.
Smells like water with some sugar and vinegar added.
Tastes like wastewater. Some fake hops additive for slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel is cheap and messy.
Not drinkable.

Mister Beer. This just a terrible beer. Very watery with a slight bitterness. The mouthfeel is bizarre, almost soap-like (anybody ever get their mouth washed out with soap as a kid?). Not worth the effort to pick up, buy or drink.

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.

Poured the palest and clearest yellow imaginable, big fizzy white head faded immediatly to leave just really nothing. Lots of chains of bubbles littered throughout, but this was just soo damn clear. Smell did not exist, at least I couldn't smell one, don't know if that is good or bad in this case, so thats really all I can comment on. Taste again was non existent, maybe a slight taste of corn or grain, but really I was dumbfounded as there was really no taste. Was slick, smooth going down. Tasted like ice cold water and I could see why people drink so much, they are trying to find the taste!
