The infamous "8 Ball". This brings me back to high school and the Bonfare Market in Oakland. 69 cents would get you a forty. That was way too much money for this.

Out of the Fo-tee ounce. Pours dark yellow, not unlike urine, with a foamy white head. Aroma is of the streets, ethyl, corn, chemical sweetener, and dank funk. Taste is brutal. Bitter sweet, but in a bad way. In a really sweaty, corny gym sock way. It is impossible to quantify the malt-liquor brutality of this beverage unless you actually try it.

A - Yellow gold with a ring of foam around the collar. This one has minimal soapy lace that slides down the side of the glass. Pretty average for a malt liquor.

S - Sweet cornflake cereal. Rice. No real detectable alcohol fumes. Smells a tiny bit peppery.

T - Pretty clean and boring.

M - Again, clean and boring. No real assertive or funky flavors...just clean corn and rice adjuncts.

D - This is one of the least offensive malt liquors on the market (it's the most like real lager), but I like my 40s like I like my gansta rap...I want to be offended.
