My absolute favorite train ride 40. Does its job at 1/4 the price of the macro brew crap out there. Definately adjunct heavy, can easily taste the corn. Sweeter than most, but this is smooth for a cheap malt liquor and has a nice flavor and does not get overty nasty as it warms. Give it a try.

This is from a 40oz bottle poured into a glass mug. The 8.1% ABV.

A- Dark yellow/golden color. Three finger head fizzles slowly to a small head, a little more than a film of foam. Bubbles are streaming up. Looks quite good. Leaves long strands of lacing.

S- Malts, Grainy, Alcohol, Corn.

T- Sweet maltiness is the major flavor. A little corn, but doesn't stand out too much. Alcohol taste is there, but it blends well into the taste. The sweet malt taste lingers to savor it.

M- Medium with a syrupy slick mouthfeel. It fits.

Drinkability- This is surprisingly drinkable.

O- Overall, this is a great malt liquor. It has a good taste, way better than Hurricane HG by a long shot.
