Good! Flat out! Now that I've had the 6.9 alv 24 ounce it will be my beer until I find something else, and I'm not looking. Great taste, smooth going down, looks inviting, feels light but after a few it's a sledge hammer. Overall 5 star for me. I grew up drinking Old English, Schlitz Malt liquor, Colt 45. So this is in my wheelhouse

For the kind of beer it is I found this better than expected. (32 ounce can was like 1.50 at a local supermarket).

Enough alcohol for a buzz, not so much you become an obnoxious drunk. We'll see how I feel in the morning.

A - really I don't know why I could down grade the appearance, it's clear golden, with a white head that sticks and leaves spotty lacing like lagers are supposed to be
S - corn, corn, corn, light grains, slight peppery bite
T - corn, light grains, slight bite to it, honestly not bad
M - nice and light, alcohol covered, aftertaste is more corn, light grains, slight bitter bite
O - you know there's a reason this is a beer you can find anywhere, it has the light cheap lager thing down, I prefer it and the other old mil's over the other aal's too

A chip off the Old Miller block.

Low color, high alcohol, fizzy yellow stuff with a kick. Usually I don't notice alcohol in these ice beers but there seems to be a touch of it here. I can't really say it doesn't also have a slightly different flavor profile than the other ices because I usually drink them so cold any flavor there is iced over. Yes, that was a pun.

This stuff will get you buzzy as a bee.




When you're scrounging the couch cushions for change hoping to find enough for beer this would be a logical choice.
