The King Cobra malt liquor is the best malt liquor I have ever drank and I have drank a lot of malt liquors.
No such thing of hops in this. No such thing of roasted malt in this.
Just get your buzz on for cheap.
I think that is is brewed at a lower temp than other malts due to the heaviness of the corn adjunct and maybe the artificial sugars that they use over at the St. Louis brewery.
King Cobra...drink it and you'll be a Cobra for life!

My malt of choice, very drinkable. But as with malts definitely intended to get someone drunk over a great drink

Poured into a pilsner glass.

A - Light gold

S - A bit absent. There is some grain & corn.

T - Light corn and grain. Carbonation gives some bite in place of hops.

M - Medium- and quite drier than anticipated.

O - Very refreshing but a bit tame for a high gravity lager. If you must mow your lawn this year, King Cobra will balm the savage thirst.

Nothing fancy, just an easy to drink malt liquor. Malt and corn sweetness. Crisp, light. Great example of the style.

Pours a golden color with only a small lace of head around the rim, highly carbonated. Smells like standard corn adjunct lager. Not much flavor until it reaches the bottom of your throat. Not as putrid as I expected. A little bitter in the aftertaste. After a couple tastes I'm starting to taste the fuel like malt liquor flavor. Far from the best malt liquor, but not the worst either.

When I used to drink malt liquors, this was my favorite. Malt liquors exist to get a person drunk as possible on the least amount of money and I used to buy KC quartz for 99 cents plus tax and CRV back in the 90's, but I have not had this beer since.
