Faint spice and sweet malt aroma. It's exactly the same color as your piss when you're dehydrated. Head disappears immediately. Flavor of sweet malt and skunky medicine. Hides the alcohol pretty well. It's just plain awful but if you need to get drunk with the change in your couch this is the one for you.

Wow, a C-, No Way! Really!

I'm not a beer snob, but I have to draw the line somewhere, I didn't know if I should put this in the gas tank, use it to kill weeds, or cockroaches.

I actually do drink some malt liquors, but this smelled and tasted like fuel, less calories, but a really strong alcohol aftertaste-pass on this one...

This is from a 24oz can.

A- A slightly darker yellow than a Budweiser. Leaves a good amount of frothy head and a tiny bit of lacing.

S- Musky corn, alcohol

T- It tastes like a very corn forward beer and alcohol. Very little, if any malt. Metal taste. Once it warms up, the alcohol taste is #1 and the corn is even more evident.

D- I don't find this too drinkable, unless it's super cold.

M- It has a good amount of carbonation, light although slick.

O- Overall, I feel this is just a high abv% corn based beer with no malt in it. I thought it would be a nice malty malt liquor, but this was not the case. I'm pretty disappointed in this.

Goldish color with a white head. A bitter grassy nose makes me quiver. The taste is no better. Alcohol and old feed corn. The body is light and has enough carbonation for 80 ounces of liquor. And yes, this is liquor, not beer. It drinks like liquor as well.

There was a post recently about the glories of high ABV malt liquors, so I thought I'd relive the college days and grab one.

Pours a light yellow gold, surprisingly small white foam head that quickly vanished, leaving an ominous looking beer of that certain yellow color.

Smells like sweet grainy corn. Awful. Taste was also awful. Sweet corniness, and a husky, earthy bite to it that was pretty foul.

What was I thinking?

A - Dark orange color

S - Pretty bad. Heavy alcohol smell. Doesn't really smell like any type of beer.

T - Gross. this is not good. The alcohol overpowers any flavor that might be there. It's a little fruity but that's about all that comes through.

M - Ehh OK. Very thin, bubbly similar to an energy drink.

D - Almost none. This isn't even good to drink if you're looking to get hammered despite the high alcohol content. It takes forever to choke this down.

I don't recommend this at all.

Aroma is - hello? Aroma! I don’t get a whiff of anything that resembles beer. It pours a clear yellow with a fairly thick and fluffy white head, but this is the brew’s strongest point. Flavor is at least present, but it is just malty, no complexity or depth, and leaves a tinny aftertaste. Texture is smooth, a bit thin, and barely fizzy at all. I bought it just to try something different. At least it helps me appreciate craft brews.
