Many friends of mine are in sheer disbelief that I actually like this beer. You probably asking yourself why like they do. First off, the taste to me is better that any other malt liquor, and although the ingredients are simple...corn. Its a smooth drink. its also high in alcohol content which for its price gives a nice cheap buzz. If I drink enough the corn taste keeps getting sweeter. Drink this stuff ice cold and its better in cans, the light cant get to it.

Serving type: bottle

Bought this in a 25 oz. "one extra ounce" can for my breweriana collection. Poured into a chilled pint glass.

A - Pours a huge loose head that is fleeting and retreats to practically no lacing - just a flat yellow liquid.

S - Adjunct city with metallic overtones.

T - Not as bad as the smell, but still cooked corn and grains with a metallic hint.

M - Surprisingly a little on the watery side.

O - This is best drank ice cold, quickly and straight from the can or bottle. Still, for what it is it really isn't all that bad.

Serving type: can
