Ed Hardy Light Beer

December 18, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 2 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Cervecera Mexicana, Country: Mexico, Grade: C regular, Style: Macro!, Video Reviews

ABV unknown C Tasting notes: *I currently have, by my count, 12 Beer Advocate Top 100 beers in my McMansion that I have yet to try, but I was far more excited to try this dreck.  I have a problem. *I love that a beer created by America’s douchiest company is actually brewed in Mexico.  […]

Landshark Lager

November 19, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 27 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Margaritaville, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Macro!

4.7% ABV from a urinal “How’s that Landshark Lager?” “Terrible.” “T’is what I heard.  Get me a bottle.” “Wait.  You want a bottle of it?” “Yep.” “Why?” I have that conversation a lot with bartenders.  As much as I love great beers, I also have a perverse fascination with trying the worst of the worst.  […]

Pabst Blue Ribbon

4.74% ABV canned Yesterday’s post reminded of an even more interesting tale of Super Bowls past. May I present… The Hooker Lottery In Super Bowl XXXVII the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scored early and often on Bill Callahan’s pathetic Raiders’ defense and the game was rendered quite boring quite quickly. Likewise boring were the commercials, finger […]

Natural Light

4.2% ABV canned “You know what today is the one-year anniversary of, right?” Derek and I were shoe-horned into a packed bar on Second Avenue. It was 11:30 AM on Sunday. Outside, runners trotted by at mile 18 of the New York City Marathon. Inside, childish just-out-of-college Upper East Siders oozed into the empty space […]

Michelob Golden Draft Light

4.1% ABV bottled Friend of the Vice Blog and Minnesotan The Captain’s Chair sent me a nice package of local beer last week, wanting me try some of the finest brews his state has to offer. He sent me great stuff from Surly, Schell, and other Land of 10,000 Lakes breweries. Any Minnesota beer review […]

Bleue Legere Light

August 27, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 1 Comment | Filed in Brewer: Labatt, Country: Canada, Grade: D regular, Style: Macro!

4% ABV from bottles, cans, taps, and anything and everything else In French Canada the Labatt Blue Light flows like water and the men make David Beckham look like John fuckin’ Wayne. I think I drank about seventy-five “Blue Lights”–as they’re known in the region–in slightly over two days while not seeing a Mapleleaf male […]

Trader José Premium Lager

July 22, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 1 Comment | Filed in Brewer: Trader Joe's, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Macro!

ABV unlisted and unknown but I would guess that it lies somewhere slightly higher than Poland Springs and slightly lower than Dasani They say imitation is the highest form of flattery but when you’re imitating (read: rippin’ off) the worst beer on planet earth then you’re just acting fucking stupid and your company’s shareholders should […]

Foster’s Lager

5% ABV from an oil can (25.4 fluid ounces) I’ve lived in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan for around the last 4 years. My previous location was on 47th and 9th and though it wasn’t a nice building by any means, it was filled with quiet yuppie professionals. That I never saw. And I truly mean never […]

Coors Light

4.2% ABV from a keg Went to a housewarming party thrown by my friend and his wife at their sweet new house in the Boston suburbs. I was the only one of the 3 or 4 dozen guests that did not own at least one of the following: a house, a car, a spouse, a […]

Bud Light

June 26, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Anheuser-Busch, Country: America, Grade: D regular, Style: Macro!

4.2% ABV from a can “Brewed with the finest ingredients for a refreshingly smooth taste.” That’s what is says verbatim on the side of a Bud Light can. The “finest” ingredients? A “refreshingly smooth taste”?! Really?! Why do all macro beer manufacturers lie so fucking blatantly? These places should be sued. No truly good beer […]
