Today, my friends, Mr. Beer brings you both the Judgement on MGD as well as our wonderful blog’s first guest post from my good friend Mr. E. Beer.
Before I get to MGD’s final judgement, I feel compelled to comment on a situation that our president finds himself neck-deep in. And I only bring this up because of the beer reference.
Full disclosure. I’ve never made it a secret to those who know me how I feel about – in no particular order – communism, Obama, and Clemson. I think they are all bad for America.
That being said, I saw where President Obama, the idiot professor from Harvard, and the overzealous cop (click the link if you don’t know what I’m talking – http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,534851,00.html) were all getting together for a beer to “straighten everything out.” Well isn’t that just sweet. Are you f*cking kidding me??? Our president is drinking beers with a crazy Harvard professor and a hard-headed cop??? Seriously??? Is that REALLY the best use of the leader of the free world’s time? And to drink what? Oh wait, they wouldn’t say what the president’s beer-of-choice was so as to not “constitute an endorsement,” whatever the hell that means. Our country is trillions of dollars in debt, unemployment is at its highest since the Great Depression, and this is how our leader is spending the afternoon… No wonder this country’s breweries are getting bought up by South Africans…
That felt good – thanks for indulging me, fellow beer-drinkers.
Now, back to the issue at hand. Miller Genuine Draft evidently has its loyal followers and I can appreciate that. However, I cannot appreciate the beer in and of itself. As I mentioned during my initial review, Miller does a great job of making this beer seem authentic and pure. But truth be told, it’s just another watered down, pitiful attempt by a big-name brewery (in this case, Miller) to draw in a different audience. The worst part though, is that for all its watered down flavoring, it fills you up pretty quickly. Drink 1-2 of these guys tops and move on. Mrs. Beer suggests that the ladies stick to 1-2 sips, but that has more to do with her taste buds than the beer being filling. Truth be told, she only had one sip and that was only after I tricked her into it. Needless to say, that was as much participation as she would agree to for this beer.
On a serious note, keep this beer ice cold. As I mentioned yesterday, when even slightly warm I felt like I had to pour it out it was so bad. It’s fine at a back yard BBQ if it’s the only beer there, but if there is another type of beer in the cooler, I would grab one of those.

In a few minutes we’ll have Mr. E. Beer’s guest post. Tomorrow night’s light beer taste test should bring some interesting results. That being said, there is a slight possibility it may get postponed due to circumstances beyond Mr. Beer’s control.
*Note: Yesterday, I commented on the great job Miller had done in its presentation of MGD. I was about to give it an 8.5 out of 10 in this area, but Mrs. Beer would hear none of it. Something about it looking like fake gold jewelry that turns your finger green. After some give-and-take, we agreed to a modest 6.
