Drank from a 42 ounce plastic bottle. Scores are based on the style.

Look - A really lazy looking label, doesn't stir up anything in me. The liquid is slightly darker than other malt liquors but doesn't froth up as much.

Smell - Sweet grain and corn with a slight pungent bitterness. Much more scent than other examples in the style.

Taste - Taste follows the smell with a bit of a dirty earthy quality. Not too bad.

Feel - Thin body with very flat carbonation. The complete opposite of most other malt liquors. Very drinkable.

Overall - The poor label gives off a bad first impression, but I was pleasantly surprised. A quite good malt liquor.

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.
