Picked up a forty of this, my usual budget savers, bud and yuengling, needed a rest. So here it is, poured into a pilsner glass, very pale with pee color tint. One minute one finger head, notable amt. of rising bubbles. Avg appearance for the style. Sweet smelling, malt and a hint of alcohol. Not much to say taste wise but at least it isn't unpleasing. Tastes like the first beer I sipped from my dad's can as a child. It's refreshing, and a little sharp. I'll probably make this a regular when I buy forties since it actually resembles what beer is supposed to taste like, as opposed to 90% of the bottled garbage juice in that same cooler.

Generally speaking, I will never ever touch something from a green bottle. This is the exception, because Mickey's is really (in my opinion) the best malt liquor ever... which still isn't *that* good.

A - 40oz green bottle poured into a pint mug. Pours a pale straw color that rises to about two fingers of average head, leaving some spotty lacing but no retention.

S - Smells like adjunct. Hardly any smell, but what I can pick up is corn. Blech.

T - Sweetness, corn, faint alcohol. I can't really find any flavors that are present in normal beer, like hops or malt or yeast or anything like that. Mostly grain filler crap. That being said, it's worlds better than other beers that have mostly filler, like Bud, Coors, Miller, etc.

M - Watery, tingly carbonation.

O - It's cheap for a reason.

Poured from a 40oz bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery pint glass...

A - Pours yellow with a one finger foathy head that dissipates at quick pace...

S - Sweet malts and corn. No alcohol comes across, but it could be covered up by the abundance of sweet malts...

T - Corn, grains, and lots of sweet malts. Reminds me of apple juice. Hops make an appearance, but they are over shadowed by sweetness. Abv is well hidden...

M - Lighter bodied with a good amount of carbonation...

O - Let's face it, most people drinking swill aren't doing it for the taste. I used to drink these when I was younger, but now i'm unsure of what compelled me to buy these time and time again. The abv is low (for a malt liquor), it is overly sweet, and costs more than many other malt liquors. Also I really dislike the shape of the 40oz bottle. Awkward to hold. All, in all, not something I will be revisiting. I will take King Cobra over this any day...
