2.54/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.25

Poured from a clear 40 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, alcohol. Taste is alcohol, plastics, hints of gasoline, actually not quite as bad as I was expecting. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall I'm lucky my friend and his old lady are here to help with this one, I wouldn't want to drink this 40 oz. alone.

A - Pours clear amber almost like Bud or Coors but a little darker.

S - I smell apples. Apples and alcohol.

T - I taste apples. Its sweet. For 10.5% ABV there is hardly any alcohol after bite.

M - It goes in my mouth it feels right. I swallow. Pretty smooth.

O - If I was a street corner alcoholic, I could beg 5 bucks for this. It beats after shave by a long shot. If all you want is a cheap buzz this is going to be my go to.

I got a single 16oz can of this from Woodman’s in Janesville, WI in summer 2012.

Pours a cloudy amber orange color with a slight but fast diminishing head. Scent is fairly strong with sweet, cheap grains. Taste is surprisingly sweet and mellow which is a very dangerous combination at 10.5% as stated on my can of malt liquor not “malt ale" at a lower ABV%. Drinks very smooth and easy. Not much to the flavor but still rather good for a cheap malt liquor designed to get you drunk fast. If you into malt liquors, it’s worth a try for just over $1.
