1.63/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Presentation: 40 oz clear glass bottle, no freshness date.

Appearance: Clear pale straw colour with a pasty white lace. Bubbly carbonation shows its effervescence. Some of this sample was poured out to get a look at the head retention and true colour.

Smell: Light fusel alcohol, faint malt and a cooked corn aroma.

Taste: Vaguely crisp carbonation, moderate body with a thinnish malt palate. Well rounded carbonation fits this beer nicely. Alcohol in the breath with minor fusel alcohol flavours. Biting twang from the hops with a used up bitterness that struggles. Malt is cracker like yet thin and flimsy. Finish does not clean up, mildly astringent end.

Notes: On the bottle is says “Magnum Premium” … premium compared to what? A sub-standard Malt Liquor, lots of rough edges and tough to put down. Needless to say I had a hard time consuming all of it. One of the cheapest 40’s you can get, usually around $1.50 a pop.
