Is a golden yellow color with a one finger head.
Smells of dank hops, light malt and booze.
Tastes rather sweet and of corn like all Miller products, some bitterness, not bad at all for a malt liquor.
Mouthfeel is cloying and syrupy.
Overall, a surprisingly good malt liquor.

Another cheap brew, good for the price, $1.25 for 24 oz. There are still better cheap options with higher ABVs. Hurricane or SR are better with higher ABVs.

Weird how something with so much carbonation couldn't hold a head on it, otherwise yellow. Tons of alcohol smells from it, how is this less than 6%?

Taste is more alcohol, hot, carbonation is high, hopping is only there to provide some bitterness and preservative effect. Even more corn than High Life, tastes even worse.

I find myself reviewing this malt liquor. Typical Miller product, so you get corn in there. For a malt liquor the ABV isn't that high. There is a hint of grain in the smell, slightly hoppy. To tell the truth, this is one of the better malt liquors.

Magnum malt liquor pours out golden yellow. A lot of lacing on the glass. Streaming bubbles running up this glass. Smell of corn, grain, and malts. Taste get some malt, corn, and a touch of hops. Finishes smooth crisp clean and refreshing. One if the Better malt liquors. Might be my favorite.
