look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25
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.

There's nothing like a swill tick on a Sunday evening...
Pours a lifeless clear pale straw color with no head or lacing. Nose is corny, grainy, musty and metallic. There are hints of stale skunky character at the end. Taste starts with water followed by an addition of slightly sweet and musty grain notes that gain in strength. The finish is metallic and stale tasting. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. Yeah, this one is pretty bad!

this stuff is cheap so thats good , in my area have never found a 40 or any bottle at all of this stuff
taste is kinda gross , the busch gross , over carbonated super thin , i am not a busch fan so if you like busch or budweiser then you should dig this . Its just so carbonated and snkaky
which leads to me to the next point , smell smells kinda corny and adjunky well sure its anheiser and its malt liqour so that doesnt say much but idk it smelled like busch but to the next level.
taste well like i said like busch but since its 6% instead of 4.6 it's more of a pay off, how ever id rather buy steel reserve,old english or hurricane . hurricane is also made my Anheuser and may be harsher , its also got more of a deeper drink and is less carbonated , and best part more abv 2% .
i used to think it was ok , but last time i drank it it was a day after i drank an ice house , the ice house was only 0.5 % less but was way easier to drink .
all in all its not that good imo , look down at the 40s the OE or HGs and you'll get more abv and more to drink for the price
id rather skip the 6% buzz and go for rolling rock if i had to choose between the two .
how ever if you do try it its only a $1.80 loss...
