I have sunk to a new low; I bought beer from a corner store. This was not the sort of Seattle corner store where you find a selection of Stone Vertical Epics. This corner store had a large selection of Spam and expired prepackaged sandwiches. The deed was done - I bought the cheapest can of beer on the shelf. So what does $1.25 per pint get you: not a whole lot.

It technically was beer. The nose was very, very light with straw and metal shavings. I sniffed so hard to try and get a scent, I actually snorted beer. The 'Bests' mouthfeel could be best described as absent. Luckily the white fluffy head did not last long; it reminded me of styrofoam packing peanuts. Your dominant flavours are straw, stale peanuts and metallic hops. There was a small hop bite at the end which had the odd taste of diluted mandarin oranges.
It left a slight soapy residue in the mouth.

This was not actually listed on the can. The low ABV actually makes this a true session beer. The 'session' you are after while drinking this crappy beer escapes my imagination.
This beer has its place; its place is in a trailer park or beer pong tournament. You cannot go too wrong at $1.25 for a 500ml can.

Drinking this beer really set the mood for my weekly Hoarders fix. It also reset my overly developed beer palate to zero.
I may have been too harsh in my opinion of this beer. It was light, crisp, palate cleansing and refreshing. This could also describe the bottled water in the next cooler. This same bottled tap water cost up to three times as much as Milwaukee's Best.
