I've been looking to tick this one for a while, but didn't want to take down a whole 40 by myself, a recent cookout at a friends house gave the chance to spread the pain. I'm going to give a detailed review. This was pretty much an average example of the style. It didn't have the harshness of most, and was actually almost pleasant. Most of the tasters found a slight apple taste that I didn't pick up.

This was surprisingly easy to drink and not at all unpleasant. If you're in the mood for a 40, you could do lot worse than grabbing one of these.

Consumed straight from the 40 oz bottle.

Not much of an aroma to it,light corn smell and some alcohol.

Taste is a little sweet, not terrible tasting.

Mouthfeel is light and it has a clean finish.

Overall its not a terrible malt liquor, it's decent for the style.

Clear 40oz bottle purchased for three dollars American.

Decent golden color.

Not much. Bready with a faint whiff of alcohol.

Light malts and inoffensive adjuncts. Gets more boozy as it warms.

Full bodied upfront but finishes rather dry.

It's alright. Not very rough for a malt liquor but not something you would want to drink alot of.
