look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

Look: clear, golden colored beer with a tiny bit of white head
Smell: very faint, if anything... what's there smells a little like vodka
Taste: the only thing going for it here is that it's so weak, you can't tell it's terrible. faint notes of corn and alcohol.
Feel: pretty easy to drink, if getting drunk fast is what you're going for

Overall: Not good. Not at all... but it's cheap, light, and 6% alcohol, so if I'm missing college again I'll probably buy more of it anyway.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into hoegaarden glass

A-very pale yellow. a bit more golden than a normal BL. small head the dissappeared fast. doesnt look like much carbonation compared to others of the style

S-Rice, cereal, straw, corn. not much to it

T-corn and rice. pretty simple as well. tastes like they added more flavor to this one compared to BL. Sort of like regular Budweiser, with a bit more alcohol to it.

MF-very light. nothing to it. pretty watery.

O-very average. better than BL. about equal with bud, but i would probably pick a normal bud.

Appearance: light yellow, no head.

Smell: Sweet malt, corn.

taste: Sweet malt liquor.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery, has an ok carbonated stinginess.

Malt liquor has an extremely offensive taste to me. This beer has a mild malt liquor taste. If it were a malt liquor, it would be the best I've ever had. I've had a lot worse beers, but this is still bad. For a cheap 6.0 abv beer, this isn't too horrible.
