I read an amusing post on Deadspin.com by Will Gordon. In the post, he reviews 36 cheap American beers and ranks them from "worst to least-worst".
The list includes Keystone (ranked "worst"), Rolling Rock, Schlitz, Miller, Yuengling, Stroh's, Old Milwaukee, Name Tag, Budweiser, Coors, and many others you may or may not recognize.
Be warned that some of the language used in the post may not be suitable for all audiences.
A few quotes from the review, to give you an idea of the author's style and sense of humor:
- "27. Miller Genuine Draft. Tastes like the brown ends of corn silk, plus lemon."
- "23. Natural Ice. The soggy cardboard sensation fades after the first several cans, turning Natty Ice into a serviceable alternative to sobriety."
- "22. Stroh's. The royal blue Stroh's can is truly majestic, but the beer itself is disconcertingly greasy. It doesn't taste like much one way or the other, but it's marred by a rubbery slickness that leaves your tongue feeling like third-day deli ham."
- "7. Rainier. This is on the sweet side of mediocre, but it's a bright, clean kind of sugar that tells soothing lies about freshness and purity."
