This beer used to come in bottles way back in 1984/5. It then moved to cans only and I even remember the real skinny 8oz cans. This was a cheap go to back before I had any money and I had no idea craft existed exept for thinking molson and moose head and Pauli girl were good because they cost way more.

Thin bubbly beer. No different than any other cheap beer back then. Never poured beer in a glass back then. Bottles were brown. Most kegs were yuengling then and still today.

Tastes very carbonated and somewhat distinct. Can't pull the taste back into my mind. Almost a rough texture to this beer but a bit "creamy" at the same time.

At $3-$4 a six pack of 16oz at the steak shop you could never go wrong, unless old Milwaukee was on sale for less. Would love to fibd a few of these in a cooler someplace

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!
