2.85/5  rDev +20.3%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium golden color with a bit of haze. Pours with a fairly large white head, although this soon disappears. A number of streams of carbonation rise quickly to the surface, but seem to do nothing to reinforce the head.

Aroma: Sweet alcohol notes and some grain comprise the simple but pleasant aroma.

Taste: Opens with a surge of sweet light malt, followed by a wave of alcohol and some mild hop bitterness. Finishes with a flourish of sweet and warming alcohol and some faint hops.

Mouth feel: Smooth and pleasant, seems fairly full for the style.

Drinkability/notes: Overall, one of the better beers in a style that runs the gamut from dreadful to excellent. Its certainly inexpensive at about a dollar for a twenty-four ounce can. Worth a try.

Review of 03-29-2003:

Begins with quite sweet notes of alcohol, corn flavors and some weak hops follow. Midway through the taste the corn malt struggles to the surface. The somewhat dry finish is dominated by sweet alcohol flavors and some understated hop bitterness.

Pours a brassy golden color, quite clear, with a small white head that soon fades to scattered islands of foam. Carbonation is lively; the lacing is fair. The aroma is dominated by pungent sweet alcohol, light maltiness, and juicy berry notes. Tasting yields slightly rough carbonation, sweet light malt, quite pronounced alcohol flavors, and towards the finish, mildly bitter medicinal hops. The alcohol is quite warming, almost like a shot of liquor; the mouth feel is pleasant. This beer proves that malt liqour can aspire to the same lofty heights as other styles of beer. At ninety-nine cents for a 24 ounce can (Centennial Liquors, Austin, TX), this seems like a great value for the money.
