Hurricane

We used to refer to this beast as "Slurricane"

APPEARANCE: 1.99 a bottle. They gave me a paper bag and put the bottle in it. In traditional fashion it was consumed appearing in its usual guise, the aforementioned bag. Nothing less than an average appearance in this most exceptional case.

SMELL: Sweet corn, unified grains, and a sweet green apple taffy scent. Malt liquor in many ways is like candy for drunkards and enthusiasts alike.

TASTE: Grainy and somewhat sweet upfront, but balanced by an odd cooked vegetable hop and grain one-two punch. Some flaccid bitterness but nothing really balances much besides the drying cardboard finish. Definitely an exceptional and perplexing dryness in a mostly stale fashion.

FEEL: Light bodied, champagne like carbonation, and more than ample stale dryness.

OVERALL: Now listed at 6% abv, this is a cheap, accessible and easy to consume beverage. It's alot more of a beer than the fruit infused lagers taking over the market these days. I'd stick with this over many of the lime or berry infused alternatives, especially when money becomes tight. You can do much worse, sadly.
