The Big Hurt - aptly named

I was challenged to review a cheap mass produced beer. So I was handed "The Big Hurt" in the pounder can.
Nose of corn syrup and cheap sake. Points to using corn and rice as the major fermenting solids. I imagine the name comes from how you will feel on the toilet tomorrow morning.

Sweet, watery, and hoppless. This beer has no ingredients I typically associate with beer. I pick up a slight formaldehyde taste and wooly dryness on my tongue.

This feels like its poisoning my body and rapidly sapping minutes from my life. Excuse me, I think I need to use the restroom...

So glad to see someone post about this liquid (I won't even call it a beer). Friends picked up some and after a couple tastes, dumped it down the sink. It certainly is not a great example of local beer.

Glad to hear they dumped it down the sink instead of continuing to torture themselves.

Couldn't agree more. I was sitting right next to you at the time and couldn't have written anything this funny when my stomach was in knots like that.
