Huge thanks to Alucard4 for getting me this dime piece before the public even had a chance to purchase it all up

Look: golden yellow in color with a 1/4 inch head no retention and spotty lacing and lots of carbonation

Smell: grass pale malt and not much else

Taste: Is much of the same as the nose. Starts out with a wonderful boring pale malt flavor backed up by some straw notes. The whopping 6% is not noticeable at all

Mouthfeel. Thin body ample carbonation

Overall: This is slightly better than bud light but still not really worth drinking

Poured from the 12oz bottle into hoegaarden glass

A-very pale yellow. a bit more golden than a normal BL. small head the dissappeared fast. doesnt look like much carbonation compared to others of the style

S-Rice, cereal, straw, corn. not much to it

T-corn and rice. pretty simple as well. tastes like they added more flavor to this one compared to BL. Sort of like regular Budweiser, with a bit more alcohol to it.

MF-very light. nothing to it. pretty watery.

O-very average. better than BL. about equal with bud, but i would probably pick a normal bud.

Appearance: light yellow, no head.

Smell: Sweet malt, corn.

taste: Sweet malt liquor.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery, has an ok carbonated stinginess.

Malt liquor has an extremely offensive taste to me. This beer has a mild malt liquor taste. If it were a malt liquor, it would be the best I've ever had. I've had a lot worse beers, but this is still bad. For a cheap 6.0 abv beer, this isn't too horrible.
