This malt liquor is just plain bad, avoid unless you are broke.

This is the best cheap beer. I like to rate beer not as one beer vs the thousands, but rather with the one beer vs the other beers of the same style. Haffenreffer Private Stock used to be the top dog, but they were discontinued :( The pictographs are fun too.

This is some brutal urine looking stuff. Can't form or hold a head. Aroma is straight rubbing alcohol, I would totally guess this was 9% from the smell going on here.

Taste is more hot alcohol, and man does it really come out in the mouthfeel as it warms. Can be super fizzy. Bad gut rot. Like is this a vodka boilermaker? Tastes like almost no barley or hops were used in this. I'm all for cheap beer, but at least let it be not so harsh especially for such a low abv.

Didn't bother to pour it, i can guess the color.

Smelled corny or sweet, but stale like alcohol.

Tastes sweet, almost dry like grass, corny.

Drank like any other cheap malt liquor. Used mine for chasing cheap vodka.

Overall, easy to drink and enjoyable enough.

Pours a golden yellow with fizzy head. Smells of light corn, wheat, and a little dank. Taste is ok when ice cold but very basic. Typical corn and wheat tones with a mild flavor overall and that skunk bite mixed in there. This beer is an ok cheap beer and I like the grenade bottles best, they least get points for different. If your looking for a cheap beer and keep it iced this is ok for a hot day.

The beer doesn't look great, but the grenade bottles are great. Doesn't smell or taste like other malt liquors, it's more beer like. A bad beer though. The hops additions to this actually taste pretty good, but the malt is reminiscent of any and all fermentables being tossed in the kettle.

What do you expect, it's "malt liqour", which is even questionable at 5.6%. Corn, light malts. Slight off/metallic taste.
Otherwise crushable but not that good.

Pours a dehydrated straw color with no head.

Smell is a bland yet pungent aroma of corn, grain and skunk.

Taste is surprisingly ok while the beer is ice cold. Some flavors of grain and corn are noted but its really just a subdued mis of flavors. As the beer warms, even slightly, the corn starts to really come through along with a slight metallic off flavor that is quite unpleasant. Also pretty strong sweetness to the beer likely from the corn.

Feel is light and drinkable. About all this beer has going for it.

Overall. Its cheap... But at 5.6% you'd have to down a lot to get drunk on this so it isn't even that cheap.
