look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours pale gold from the 24 ounce can with a good amount of head. Some lacing.
Aroma is sweet, corny.
Taste is sweet, malty with a small amount of hops.
Mouthfeel is average for an American macro.
Drinkability is good for a malt-liquor.
Better flavor, less obnoxious than the Hurricane regular.
Will kick your backside.

Back in the day, I used to fear this... I could barely finish a can... Now that I've recently converted to a beer advocate, lets see what I think...

A: My god, this thing had a massive head, at least 3 1/2in.... maybe 4! It disapeared rather quickly leaving a bit of lacing. Still, that was a big damn head. not a whole lot of carbonation.

S: Blah! I don't know what I'm smelling, but it sure as hell isn't good. Kind of sour, actually hurts my nose... maybe I shouldn't be puting this putrid smelling stuff in my gut... well I did pay for it sooo....

T: Pretty goddamn sweet like every other malt liquor in the world... the good thing is the sweetness dosn't last for long and after you swallow it the flavor, for the most part, goes away with only a slight sweetness in the aftertaste oveed by some metallicness.

M: Pretty smooth for liquid death... not much carbonation, but not flat. Goes down a litttle easier than others...

D: It will get you drunk, and it's a bit less tasteful than other Malt Liquors out there, so all in all it's not bad, if your purpose is to get drunk... if your purpose is to drink this for taste and comparisons and all that BA shit, than my friend... you are an idiot.

Appearance – This poured a light orange in color with a nice head that actually showed some decent retention and laced the heck out of my glass.

Smell – This has a sickeningly sweet grainy corn kind of aroma. This is American macro grain at its absolute worst.

Taste – This is creamed corn meets moldy orange syrup. This beer is extremely sweet in a “rotting corpse” kind of way. I accidentally ate some very moldy bread once and I remember it tasting a lot like this.

Mouthfeel – I kind of like the mouthfeel to this one. The flavors, as disgusting as they are, blend well together and keep this smooth going down. I would say that the carbonation is a little bit above macro average as well.

Sinkability – This didn’t feel bad going down, but the vile flavors of this AML made it “sinkable & undrinkable.”

Ok spied this in a local grocery store..had to have it cheapest beer in sight 99 cents a 24 oz can.
Poured into a pint mug..it really doesnt look that bad..average for sure but a heck of a lot better than Busch etc...golden beer with small but persistent white head.
The smell is foul though..chemical soup..disturbing..old leather jacket.
Yikes the taste while marginally better than the aroma..is very very sweet..this is like a flat sprite..yukky sick taste on back of tongue.
Horribly cloying on the tongue.
Not drinkable,,this is a drain pour.
