Another classic, crappy malt liquor. Pours a deeper golden. Big head, no retention, or lacing. Smell is bad skunky malts. Taste is basically the same. A little hoppiness if you're really looking. Moutfeel is light and able to drink all night long.

Overall, this is a terrible beer.

Pours a very very light yellow-goldish colour. Can't stress the lightness of the colour enough. No head, but it left large soapy bubbles in the bottle.
The smell is sweet, syrupy, and a little musty.
The carbonation is REALLY high. Taste is not what I was expecting from that super-sweet smell. It is not a very sweet brew. Very light flavour with carbonation dominating the senses. The aftertaste is just a cheap mustiness. I was really expecting more flavour from this beer. More sweetness. But there's just nothing there. Maybe there's no syrup in this malt liquor. Maybe they really do use more natural brewing methods.
So, bland, cheap, and effective is how I would brand this beer. Normally a good thing for a malt liquor, but I like mine with flavour, so I'm going to have to say this one's pretty bottom of the barrel. No flavour at all.
