This is a straight wino beer, it has to be the worst beer I have ever tasted. There's nothing great about it, the malt taste like garbage and dirt. If you like cheap malt beer buy Mikieys that at least has a good taste. Just avoid this beer at all cost.

Got Bored at work today so on my lunch break I made my way down to the corner store looking for a decent lunchtime brew. As I browsed the cooler I came to the realization that not only was there no local/micro brews but there wasn't even a decent imported brew. So I figured what the hell I'll review a malt liquor 40oz'er.

No Head to speak/ No lacing of any kind. Humongous carbonation bubbles. I dont think I've ever seen carbonation quite like this...a constant stream of different size bubbles with the biggest reminding me of when I go to the water cooler and big burping pockets of air rise to the top. Straw color and completely clear.

Watered down taste. I'm surprised to see it is 5.9% as it seems like I'm drinking a glass of juice. It has the mouthfeel of carbonated apple juice mixed 50/50 with water. finishes with an off corn flavor and its gone. Towards the end of this 40 it gets syrupy and is almost undrinkable as it warms. Avoid.
