he only thing I do like about King Cobra is the price. The price is very cheap, and you can usually get them for about 2 dollars. I think that King Cobra would only give me a good buzz if I drank on an empty stomach and I downed it fast. Other than that it didn't give me a good buzz. I didn't really like the taste of King Cobra beer. The taste is very watery. It's not a really bad taste like 211 but it lacks any flavor.

*Reviewed with Louisiana Beer Reviews on Youtube

A- Looks like an American lager. It's got some head when you pour it directly down the middle of a glass. Tilting the glass does nothing. But looks like beer in general.

S- Pungent. Unidentifiable grains and cooked veggies. Sweet. Wet paper.

T- Pungent as well. Same as the smell. Grains and cooked veggies with that overall sweet character. No hop character whatsoever. Borderline OK. I think there are other malt liquors that taste better than this one.

M- Very drinkable. It's light to medium, on the light-ish side. It's not a dry as other American lagers. You can feel the sweetness slightly tingling the teeth (strangely enough). The finish has the wet grainy feel to it.

Overall I can't recommend this beer to you, but I wouldn't say this isn't something you shouldn't try. My averge for the rating is 2.8ish, which rounds to being a 3. It's okay, but to me it is a bit harsh and I would rather drink Old English 800 or Private Stock Instead.
