Recently completed a blind taste test of eight macro lager beer in 16 ounce cans. The field: Bud Coors Grain Belt Premium Hamms High Life MGD Old Style Pabst The Process: One 16 ounce can of each beer was placed in my beer fridge. Over four days my wife would randomly take two of the beers out and I would close my eyes. She would open them and then keep a key of what was what. I scored the beers from 1-10 based on how they tasted right out of the cans. I dictated some brief notes and my wife wrote them down. After I was done rating and reviewing I left the room and she poured them into glasses and disposed of the cans in a special paper garbage bag so I could not see what beers I just had. After the four days were up all the beers had been tasted and rated...once. Time to do the exact same drill again. Again, she chose random beers to face off 1-on-1 and I rated them again. Finally after another four days of tastings (not consecutive) she revealed the scores and notes. I also tried to predict what was what. I nailed Bud and Premium both times, and the Miller products both times but got them mixed up once. I hit Pabst, Coors and Hamms once as well. Mixed up Hamms and Old Style one time. Results (scores are the average of the two taste tests) 1. Coors Original (8.95): Clean, smooth pleasant maltiness. 2. High Life (8.8):Grainy..sweet malt 3. MGD (8.6): Sweet malty macro lager 4. Bud (7.95): Fresh, nutty, ricey 5. Hamms (7.2):Sweetness on finish. Not a lot of flavor. Lightly sweet 6. PBR (7.1):Chewy sweetish malt..old time beer taste 7. Old Style (6.85): Light flavored, clean, basic. 8. Premium (6.45): Sweet malt aroma, apples...bad after taste. Final Thoughts/Tidbits: I do not know the dates on the beers. Should have written them down. Is High Life and MGD same beer? Tough to tell. Flavors and scores are real close and the difference could be due to the age on the beers. What about Hamms and Pabst being the same beer? Personally I thought they tasted different but their scores are remarkably close. Bud was easy to pick out as were the Miller products. I drank a lot of Miller products growing up (back in 3rd, 4th grade) and have always liked their flavor so there may be a slight taste bias for me. Still, Coors was clearly the best of the lot both tastings and right now as I type this from a fresh 12 pack I just bought and I feel the same drinking it now. It is now my macro of choice.
