look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from 40 oz bottle into grenade pint glass

Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a big billowy white head. The head is composed of big carbonation bubbles; the ones that are seen rising through the beer. The head fades very fast and gives way to a very light amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heavy in corn and has a slight metallic odor.

Taste – The taste is of corn and rice in nature mixed with a metallic flavor. Some astringency comes in and mixes with the other present flavors. There is a little bit of bitterness that comes in the end and leaves a sting on the tongue. It is actually sorta good as it leaves a rather nice tingle and gets rid of some of the less pleasant metallic and astringent flavors.

Mouthfeel –Rather average body with a medium level of carbonation. It helps make the brew easier to drink and is good for the style.

Overall – Not really the best malt out there. With the price of this 40 oz at only at $2.25, what should I expect though, right?

look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Drank this like it's meant to be drank, straight from the 40 oz. bottle.

Appearance: Golden yellow, cant comment on the head since it's straight from the bottle.

Smell: Skunky, metallic, boozy. Nothing appealing.

Taste: Ugh, it really tastes like mild soap. The finish is slightly grassy and metallic. This is disgusting.

Mouthfeel: Average for a malt liquor. Pretty high carbonation with a light body, easy to guzzle down if you hold your nose so you can't taste it.

Overall: If you're looking for a good malt liquor, avoid this and get a Mickey's.
