Poured from 24oz can into a pint glass. This is the 8.1% version. It's that time again ... time to review malt liquors!

Appearance: rich golden hue with no haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a thin finger of fizzy white foam which dissipates quickly.

Smell: sweet, with a little hint of plastic. Not great.

Taste: quite sweet indeed, with an actual malt flavor tinged with some corn. Finish has a light bitterness but mostly just has that plastic taste. This isn't great, even quite cold.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a refreshing-enough fizziness.

Overall: I am not a fan of this. It is simply not that good.
