From a 40! Stamped MAY0514-CO5110027. Sampled on January 12, 2014.
One needs to look at this based on the style rather than on the reputation of American malt liquors...which among craft brew fans is about the lowest it can be.
Malt liquors are supposed to look pale yellow with a big fizzy white head. This does.
malt liquors normally smell of rancid corn, rice, grain, and other adjuncts. This one does not. Yes, those characters are there but they are far more muted. Quite frankly this smells a lot like a standard American pale lager.
Malt liquor bodies are often thin and watery. This one is smooth and about medium.
Malt liquors can make you wince with the metallic taste and overly rambunctious corn and grain characters. There is a bit of that here but this is not cloying or rancid. It is really smooth. If more malt liquors were like this one I'd be drinking a lot of them. Sorry previous raters and BA members, I have to score it much higher than you did.
