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...

look: 2.25 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

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?

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

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.

Okay, I honestly thought these reviews were a little overdramatic...but oh was I wrong; so so wrong.

Poured from a 24oz can into my Paulaner mug (hah!)

A - A bit darker than your typical straw yellow macro. Nice fluffy head that dissipates faster than you can count to 3.

S - Like it was trying to be a macro beer but something went horribly wrong and a sour smell emerged (as if that wasn't enough).

T - Alright...this is unlike any beer i've ever tried. Let's say you take a can of macro beer, pour a bunch of water in it to water it down even more, then add some pure grain alcohol to it. Gah, i'm trying to type this description out while forcing this shit down. The alcohol bitterness just won't go away.

M - Despite the description I gave for the taste, it's not too watery.

D - I wish there was a rating below 1.0 because it needs it. It feels like i'm complimenting it by giving it that rating. You're going to need to be drunk off your ass before you drink any of this.
