Drank from the 32 OZ bottle (without the paper bag). Aroma- not a pleasant aroma, mostly stale corn and wet grass. Appearance- crystal light golden color with lots of carbonation. Taste- really! It is made to impair and not to impress your taste buds. Overall- this is not a good beer and it isn't even a good malt liquor. Colt 45, Magnum and Private Stock are a lot better than this.

Amber piss color.
Smell is of skunk. Not great. Grainy.
Taste is caramel sweet, sour. Skunky.
Feel is heavy. Not great

I do not like this one. Even for what it is.

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of corn are present in the nose along with some hints of grain alcohol.
T: Similar to the smell, the beer tastes like an alcoholic version of corn flakes and has some amounts of associated sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't all that offensive for a malt liquor, so if you are looking for something cheap that you can get a buzz off of, this isn't a bad option. There are only some traces of alcohol.

Serving type: can

Damn, I drank the ice cold Westcoast (7.5% ABV) version and it felt great. I was happy that a friend of mine brought me a bottle from his US trip. In Germany I havent seen those 40 ounce bottles except in some well-known hip-hop movies :) I was happy to enjoy this swill. It had no bad aftertaste at all and the 7.5% ABV were well hidden. I wish in Europe we could buy those 40s in supermarkets but I think that will never happen. Y'all americans should be proud of your malt liquors and this brew is the king of them!
