For the price it's a decent beer. I like the size. I am afraid though that as it becomes more popular, esp with the homeless, the price will go up quick. already raised a quarter.

This is a review of a 24 oz can.
From the bottom of the can: "CL01723 1752 FL"

Appearance: It has a nice warm gold colored body with excellent clarity. It is a beautiful looking beer. It starts out with a short white head but it doesn't last long at all. It quickly drops out to nothing. There is no lacing on the beer other than a few spots of bubbles that are so sparse you could count them individually. Aside from the lack of a sustained head or any lacing it is a gorgeous looking beer.

Aroma: There is a very, very, very light hop aroma which smells a bit like noble hops. There is also a very light aroma of what smells like vinyl. It's not a very good smelling beer.

Taste: There is a light noble hop character up front with a light hint of caramel. Towards the middle the flavor increases a bit and there is a touch of walnut with some more herbal notes. Although these flavors increase the overall flavor profile is still very mellow and the beer tastes watered down. There isn't any real flavor towards the back of the palate and the aftertaste is just this light walnut flavor.

Mouthfeel: It tastes very light and watered down. It is very easy to drink. The can doesn't appear to list any ABV but it is important to note that there is no perceived alcohol in either the flavor or the mouthfeel of the beer, so it hides the ABV very well.

Overall: This beer isn't going to win any prizes for being flavorful or aromatic, but it has a nice walnut aftertaste and it is very easy to drink. The label simply calls this a "Classic LAGER" and it is an easy drinking lager. It has a bit of a vinyl aroma but that was so subtle that it is only noticeable when you are trying to pick out an aroma from the beer; when drinking this normally it doesn't come through.

Normally I wouldn't mention prices but this one has "$1.50" printed on the can itself. It's not a bad buy if you can get it for that price and just want a cheap and easy drinking lager. I would recommend it to those who are looking for a cheap beer that's easy to drink. I probably wouldn't buy this regularly but if I could get it for $1.50 I might buy a few to throw in a cooler with some hotdogs for a cheap camping meal.

Clear, medium gold body; very nice carbonation; very little head, thin and patchy. Weak aroma; faint grain scent. Fairly bold grain flavor and sweetness; corn; mild hop bitterness. Medium body; smooth with a slight velvet feel and a mild warmth.

Not a bad lager for what it is.

Poured at 58 °F; the can label lists this is now a "Classic Lager" and brewed by Hornell Brewing Co. (part of Ferolito, Vultaggio & Sons, if I understand things correctly).

For a beer that's only $0.70 per 12 ounces is absolutely nothing to complain about. It's Better than most other cheap beers. It is not going to win any awards you will be pleasantly surprised how it taste for being so cheap.

This says lager on the 24oz can. For 1.25 for 24 oz I was intrigued. Popping the top I get grape juice. Pour is classic Amber with a weak head. On the taste I get grape juice with angostura bitters. Like a weak old fashioned. For $0.05 per oz I am not complaining. Not offensive and a great looking can. I think I found a new chugged to hang at the BBQ in 95 degrees.

This isn't your normal type of beer, for 1.25 this is a friendly type of beer. Many may say " oh it has a metallic taste" but what were they drinking metal? Can't be compared to natty cause it doesn't taste water downed, can't be compared to let's say Heineken cause it's a bit malt liqour. This beer can hit the spot when you're in the dumps. Besides this the only other beer that can live up to it is the olde English 800. Too bad they don't make 40 oz of this cause damn that would sure turn the market around. God bless the U.S of A

Was unexpectedly heading to the local commuter train and passed a bodega so I decided to grab a beverage to enjoy on my hour long trip. I spied this wonderful looking 24 oz. can in the cooler and was immediately inspired to take a closer look. Hand crafted, the "label" said (BTW what do you call the outside of a can? It isn't technically a label, but I digress). American made. Original even. And a Classic Lager. How could it get any better? Than, in the upper left corner of the aforementioned "label" was the coup de grace. $1.25! How could it be possible for such a highly touted product to be priced at such an inviting level? And for 1 PT, 8 FL OZ of anticipated golden nectar. It could only because prime example of American ingenuity at its finest. I had to have it and have it NOW!

Caught my train by the skin of my teeth. Found a seat and prepared myself for the journey, both in the physical and the emotional. As the train departed the station, I cracked open the plebian tab that stood between me and the experience I so longed to have.

How to rate this libation? How to describe it? The question of look remains unexplored. It is truly unfair to fault the beer for this so I fairly (I feel) out this required rating smack dab in the middle of the field. How could one even consider using and vessel but the magnificent aluminum that naturally covers it. Luckily the aroma is able to we escape through the approximately inch wide circle created by the escape valve commonly referred to as the tab. I can think of no other words to describe this than sickeningly sweet. This is not a value judgement, mind you, but a descriptive fact. A negative? Who am I to make such a judgement on an esteemed product like Crazy Stallion.

But we know why you all are here. To discover the taste, the flavor, how does Crazy Stallion tickle the tongue. I can only confirm that I absolutely got my $1.25 (actually $1.50 once you calculate the government's share of the experience) of value. And what more can one truly ask for. Indeed, what more. This Crazy Stallion was possibly one of the finest travelling companions I have ever had on a commuter rail journey.

I picked up a 24oz tallboy at my local bodega for $1.25. I drank about half and poured the rest out. Has a awful sour metallic taste, like it’s been sitting in the can for years. I won’t buy it again.

$1.25 for a 24 oz beer can't beat that these days. I was pretty surprised how good this beer was. Tasted pretty good and if it's 5.9% abv then that is amazing. Doesn't really taste like its 5.9% seems about maybe 5% or somewhere between 4% to 5% abv but it says 5.9% on here so I guess that's what it is.

I was thinking this was gonna be more crazy than it was you know since it says Crazy Stallion I was thinking it would be some pretty good stuff like Natty Daddy but was quite mild for the name crazy stallion. Should probably just be called grazing stallion or something like that.

Taste reminds me of those cheap no brand beers they sell at some places that are about 4% to 5% abv. Taste reminds me of that cheap beer they sell at walgreens you get the 6 pack for like 3 or 4 dollars or something.

The taste is pretty good for the price kind of a low carbonated flavor beer pretty decent. The main thing is the type of buzz you get really which seemed to be like a sleepy beer. Had to take a nap felt drowsy after drinking this. Not really a stimulating beer. But probably gonna definitely give it some more tries to see what its like some more. Maybe I may try this beer again but seems like that beer they sell at walgreens and has the same drowsy effect.

This crazy stallion is like the arizona ice tea of beers pretty much cheap and its just beer.

Pours a clear golden/amber with a ton of head.
Smell is hard to peg. Sort of a metallic malt.
Taste is not as horrible as expected. Malty of course and mildly sweet.
Not to boozy.
Drink to get hammered, not to have flavor. Extra credit for cool ass can.
