Appearance: It is exactly what malt liquor is supposed to look like. I don't particularly find it an attractive beer but it looks the same as the rest of the malt liquors. Clear pale golden yell with a few specs of lace spotted here and there.
Smell: Grain. There is a hint of lemon grass but mostly it is a reserved grain aroma.
Taste: This is much less cloying than some Malt Liquors so to that extent I am actually pleasantly surprised; though I also must admit it tastes like a $1.50 pint. Certainly grain and corn hit the tongue and remind me of many macros. Undoubtedly better than many in its style though and certainly cheaper too.
Mouthfeel: Even considering the style, there is simply no body here to hold up the carbonation. Maybe this fault aids in the drinkability to the average Joe, but this is the beers weakest point IMO.
Drinkability: There are certainly occasions for this but not when you are interested in contemplating your beers complexity. It is an approachable 6.10% ABV if you see what I am getting at.
Hope this is helpful.
Serving type: can
