40oz bottle poured into a mug. Neck stamped APR0912.

Appearance - Pours huge rocky white head with good stick and lots of retention. Clear pale copper-gold body.

Smell - Corn. Slightly musky. Bread. Cardboard.

Taste - Bitter, mild grassy hop up front that fades away almost instantly into a faint bubblegum sweetness with mild alcohol. Heavy muskiness throughout.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied. Somewhat sticky. Astringent.

Overall Drinkability - This beer is significantly better from a can.

Someone bought me this as a joke, so here goes nothing...

OE is corn syrup yellow with a soapy head that vanishes in an instant. Corn, alcohol and crackers pretty much sums this stuff up. The mouthfeel is light and plywood dry. OE finishes with lingering cooked veggies and rubbing alcohol.

Wow. This stuff is bad. Enough said.

Here we go..this is the beer that got me into drinking beer, and projectile vomiting, at the ripe old age of 14. Can’t believe I got a glass of this recently from a “friend.” Some friend.

As the reviewer below me succinctly put it, this looks like urine. Foamy piss in the toilet, which is what it soon becomes. Smells grainy, corny, and boozy. Taste is metallic, with corn underneath, and strong alcohol throughout. Malt is light and fairly sweet. No hops to speak of, just a touch of bitterness. A little bready maybe. Unpleasant for sure. Short finish with a light body, watery, with medium carbonation. At least it doesn’t linger on the palette very long.

Stay away! Strictly for puking teens and alcoholics.

40oz bottle

Pretty much looks like urine. Clear dark yellow liquid with a big fluffy white head resting on top. Here we go!

Metallic corn and alcohol in the nose. Hints of sweetness as well with an slight funkiness.

Alcohol and corn with some slight skunky notes. Slightly smooth (I guess) and bitter. Fairly nondescript in flavor, which is a good thing for this sort of beer. Finishes with some lingering metallic notes and warmth.

Lighter medium body, decent carbonation, lingering on the tongue. This isn't good, but considering how awful some other malt liquors are, I didn't completely hate drinking it.
