2.95/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden body with a small, white head.

Smell: Floral hints mixed into some stale, low-sodium chicken broth with a dash of pool water.

Taste: Ppale malts and a bit of bored grains sweetened with light corn syrup. Not much hop character beyond some slight floral hints, no real bitterness. Thankfully, it's not junked up with any overtly chemical flavors. Drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Far from good, but that's never the goal with malt liquors, though I will say it's far from terrible as well.

Served from a 24 oz. can. Pours clear gold, moderate white head, with some retention. Smells of grassy malt and apples, not that bad. Maybe a little cold, also. Taste is full and malty, lots of grainy malt, no unpleasent flavors, though. Kind of surprising, since this was $.99 for a tall boy. Good value, I'll get it again.
