I am making the assumption that Huber Premium became this

lemon yellow body quickly vanishing spotty white head

smells like candy foam bananas

Overly sweet tasting artificial actually a decent malt backbone put the lack of hop profile or any bitterness throws it all

The mouthfeel and carb is pretty decent actually

all together better than your average US mock lager but nowhere near the class you would expect of a proper craft crafting.

Man, Koppa's in Milwaukee has a good beer selection, but they carry some total losers too.

Looks extremely faint straw yellow, flimsy white head that vanishes before you can throw the bottle in the shooting pile. The aroma is cooked vegetables, nothing in terms of hops or malt. Big whiff of aluminum even though this was poured out of a glass bottle.

Taste. I'm reminded of Mr. Tekagi in Die Hard: What taste? (I know he said 'what money'? or you want money, but the point remains). Watery, bland. More cooked veggie and metallic stuff going on, but its not as bitter as I thought it would be.

Look, there's plenty of crappy macro lager stuff made in Wisconsin, and most of it blows this beer out of the water. Rhinelander, Blatz, Schlitz, heck even Miller High Life is superior to Wisconsin Club.

This is probably the most horrendous beer brewed. Might as well suck the fart out of a pregnant skunk. I absolutely could not accept this as beer. There are no words to discribe this liquid. Bad. Bad. Bad. I went into the product with an open mind knowing it was a bad beer. But, OMG! I'd rather lick a 20 year old wet shag carpet and swallow than ever, ever drink this stuff.

What can I say about the Club -- you are either already a member, or you ain't. At $8.99 a case for these puppies, you can do no wrong. Actually, you can, and this beer doesn't.
Presented in nice green cans with the bold words, "Wisconsin Club" cries out its allegiance to a devoted society of professional drunks known as UW students, and Wisconsin residents in general.
The beer itself, meh, tastes kinda bad. But it tastes like beer, the alchemy of aluminum cans, malts, a pinch of hops coupled with a reasonable amount of adjunct produces something which is not poison. Mind you, this beer isn't great. It's terrible. But, for the price, what can you expect?
When getting large groups of people together on a budget, nothing works better. Many a fond memory. Here's to you, Wisconsin Club.
