Served from bottle to a weizen glass.

A: Straw. Magnificent head - something malt liquors tend to do wonderfully...

S: Alcohol and adjuncts!

T: Alcohol and maybe some grains...

M: Thin and highly carbonated.

O: Some malt flavor, a little sweetness; not particularly offensive when cold. Alcohol is a little rougher than some of the other major malt liquors, but also not the worst... I suppose plainly middle of the road for the style

Drank from the can as part of a college dare. Objective was simply to finish the entire can without drainpouring. Incredibly cheap but also barely palatable. Tasted like corn and gasoline, which makes sense since we found these at about $0.30 a pop at the local Sheetz. We did finish them however, and promptly autographed the cans upon completion to commemorate our worthwhile shame and regret. We displayed these trophies on our mantle for the rest of the semester.
