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.

stay away from this shit.

I consumed a 40 oz of this beer. It was the last 40 oz i have consumed to this day, and will forever be the last 40 oz i will ingest. Not the way to enjoy beer, no matter if its craft or otherwise.

anyway, this stuff is terrible. all malt and no substance, all booze and no taste.

The combination of cobra and doritos scarred me for life.

just...dont do it.
