2.53/5  rDev +25.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Crystal clear light yellow with plenty of carbonation. Nothing special, nothing bad here. There is a modicum of malt in the nose, but the adjuncts, maybe corn?, appear also. I was expecting refrigerated liquified sterno for the taste, but instead was met with a clean, light bodied lager taste. There was a bit of alcohol at the end and the riciness was clear in the crispy and thinning mouthfeel. This was not as terrible as I had expected. It did taste different than its sister Hurricane (which was much more "fuel" flavored.) Certainly nothing I would buy or recommend, but if you are looking for something to compare a craft malt liquor such as Daddy's Little Helper or Liquor de Malt then this is worth the $1.50 or so you'll pay for a 40 ounce bottle. Available at finer highway gas stations where beer is sold.

3.3/5  rDev +63.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Yes, this is not a truly fine brew, but it is cold, wet, carbonated, and cheap. You get what you py for, and sometimes it isn't the higher priced stuff. This stuff is not too bad when icy cold on a hot summer day. Actually, it's pretty good considering the price, although it desperately needs some hops. Sadly, adding a decent amount of hops would raise the price, defeating the point of being the cheapest beer around. I give it a 4.5 because it is good value for the money, and probably best in it's class.

Drink the ol' four-oh down to the bottom of the neck & top the bottle off with a little Tropicana Orange Juice. Gently swirl & enjoy this wonderful poor man's Mimosa. Make Mike D proud & get your brass monkey on, son. If you ain't on that King Cobra grind, then you better get your head right or your wig split.
