Pours a nice golden color with a half finger of head that quickly recedes to nothing.
Smells of green apple, corn, booze, and light malt.
Taste is rather sweet with the corn, followed by malt and possibly diacetyl, ending in some light, grassy hops.
Mouthfeel is that of a lager, almost creamy.
Overall, not bad, but a bit under the bar for my tastes. I much prefer Molson ice to this any day.

24oz can bb 10/16/17 poured into a half liter skate mug at fridge temp 7.3% ABV. The beer is golden straw yellow in color with off white sticky head. It is leaving some lacing. Smells a little sweet and maybe musty? Taste is sweet with a little counteracting bitterness at the end. Noticeable alcohol as it warms. There is a barely perceptible hint of the AAL aftertaste but it's largely defect free. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick and strongly carbonated. Overall, good. When you buy a 24 oz can of 7.3% malt liquor, you know what you're going to get. This is done mostly without flaws.

This is a good ?beer? malt liquor...If You're Laying In The Gutter!! Ugh! Don't Go There. Molson is appealing to the ghetto with this sauce.

24 fl oz aluminum can somehow acquired at a bodega in Brooklyn for a scant 92 cents. Don't ask me how.

7.30% ABV. "No preservatives" (aside from hops, I assume...)

Honestly, it's a little better than I expected in spite of its syrupy sweetness and off-putting sticky mouthfeel. Medium-bodied. All I taste is cheap malt and adjunct. Simple and shallow fare with average duration and intensity of flavour.

Booze is evident, but it's not egregious.

I'll finish the can with some effort, but it's not the worst fare I've encountered. You could do worse at this price tier and ABV, but it's still pretty poorly built and lacks balance.

Low D- (1.80) / AVOID

It's different than the macrobrews taste wise. It really isn't that good, but it's got a unique character. Also, the head lasts a bit longer than it does with Bud or many of the other macrobrews. It has a higher alcohol content, but it does have some other good qualities besides that. I wouldn't say it's great beer, but it isn't terrible either.

Really, does anyone at Beer Advocate think any of the swill water beers are worthy? I've had all the molsons and all I can say is that if you're just looking for a basic beer without all the effort and let's face it, 'stuff' that ends up in a quality micro, this one is not bad at all. I can drink one or two without feeling full. It won't wow you, but it won't make you run for the mouthwash either. I'm surprised so many here feel it's so bad.
