God awful. I'm normally not one to scoff at cheap beers, but this was truly awful. Drank mainly from the 40, but I poured a little out for review sake. No head, even with an agressive pour, and left this weird dotty stuff on the glass. Not a lacing, just.. gunk.

Smelled of nothing, slight fermenting corn smell.

For the love of god, do not let this beer hit your lips. The smell of fermenting corn comes even stronger on the taste. Fermented ass juice is most appropriate, no hops, no bitter, just ass. Finish is watery. only reedeming factor, the flavor is weak.

This beer is so flavorless it's easy to drink, but that's about it's only redeeming characteristic. Blah.

look: 1.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.75

Appearance:
Hurricane pours a radiant oompa-loompa orange with all the bubbles of a fizzy lifting drink. I think there's a little bit of corn stuck to the side of my glass. Head fades quickly with lacing reminiscent of a Taiwanese prostitute.

Smell:
Smells like sour apples, charred oak, and freedom. It is quite hard to pay attention to the tasting while everyone else is watching midget porn on the other couch.

Taste:
Hurricane tastes like America- From the mountains to the valleys to the broceans white with beer foam. Mild soapiness develops into sweet corn malt with a hint Fruity Pebbles on the back end. The flavor coats the mouth not unlike cough syrup - in that I will probably be tasting it when I wake up tomorrow morning. There are no hops of which to speak of, they're probably just being overpowered by awesome.

Mouthfeel:
Pretty light on the tongue, but also slippery like two babies who are KY wrestling. This could also be due to the high number of times that I have pretentiously swirled my tasting glass around. Would like to have had more carbonation, but one malt liquor can't have EVERYTHING? right? can it? guys?

Overall:
Wind up flashlight? check. Matches? check. Toilet paper? check. Now all you need it some way drown your sorrows due to the fact that college students and the federal government got the day off, and you just finished swimming home from the office. Look no farther than Hurricane Premium Malt Beverage. No screaming endorsements here, but it gets the job done, and isn't that what life is all about?

Ok, rating this as it is. A Malt Liquor. So it's not the most complex beer. It's not the most popular style. I'm fine with that. Well excuse the rambling, time to review this Farm Store Refrigerator Shelf Turd. Ok, this bottle is pure sexiness. Mmm, an H with wings screams buy me! Well this is a good looking brew (no sarcasm). It's a nice shade of yellow with a hint of orange. There was a one finger white soapy head that went away fast. Well let's smell this now. This smells like Western America, Grains, Fertilizer and Rust. Not much to it, but with Malt Liquor it's all about the Bold and Smooth body on it.
Still I go into this beast with an open mind. This tastes better than Bud Ice. The flavor is a lot better than the aroma. There is a first wave of grains and corn juice. There is a sweetness to this brew that is both sweet and tart. With this there is no hop presence only a sweet slightly fruity finish no bitterness. The body on this brew is medium-light and smooth. Carbonation is a bit rough but for $2.50 a Forty, who can argue?

Overall: This brew isn't awful. I have no problem killing the Forty. Bud Ice Forty though is another story. I gave this beer it's fair shake. I know what it is, sometimes I like to spend $2.50 on a single....Forty Ounce! This brew is Worth a Shot.
