Ice cold 40 poured into a very clean glass after shoveling 6 inches of snow on 18 degree (5 degree wind chill) Kentucky day.

A - Pours a golden color with a 1 finger head that retreats to a thin lace.

S - Sweetness and corn. You don't buy malt liquor for the bouquet.

T - Adjunct dominated with some sweetness.

M - Decent carbonation level - a very clean finish.

O - I'll openly admit that I've like this stuff for a long time. I used to think it was just King Cobra in a different package but they are totally different animals. This is a malt liquor after all...inexpensive and gets the job done. Frankly I have always wondered why regular BMC drinkers don't go for this stuff since I think it tastes better than Bud or BL and packs a decent punch.

While my rating may seem high, remember that this is malt liquor. People drink malt liquor for two reasons: it's cheap and it gets you ripped. I don't really know of any malt liquor that is truly a pleasant drink, but given price, ABV, and smoothness, Hurricane is the best malt liquor available IMO. you can still get a 40oz for under $3 in many places, and because of this, if you're looking for a cheap buzz, you can afford an extra to pour out for your homies.

Picked up a six pack of Hurricanes last night for myself and some friends. Taste is a lot like Bud, just a bit stronger. The metal can doesn't really help it, but I've had 40s as well, and they've tasted pretty similarly. The biggest negative of it is that it picks up the taste of the can towards the bottom.

Mouthfeel is okay, as is smell. The appearance is what you'd expect, not tremendous, but not bad either.
