Not too bad, though I had expected something really terrible. Tastes a bit like Budweiser but with a slightly richer mouthfeel and more hopping.

I did not feel that it was too bad of an ale. Big Bastard is correct about it being similar to an American standard, but the powerful alcohol flavor proves otherwise. It is sweet and warms your stomach upon each sip. The Alcohol was also noted in the aroma as soon as I cracked the bottle open. If these traits could have been hidden better or just made somewhat smoother, this would be an alright brew.

Not as bad as I expected. Tasted like an AMerican standard, with a slightly sweet/alcohol flavor in there too.

I picked this up only to rate and it was tough. I saw no redeeming value here. There are plenty of this sort of thing in the market.

Pale straw colour with large bubbles. Slightly grainy, slighty alcoholic aroma. Flavour definintely leans towards alcohol, with just a little bit of graininess.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Light golden color, sweet alcoholic aroma and taste, light thin body, light thin alcholic finish. Sh*t

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2008 Pale yellow,huge 4 finger head that disappeared in a minute or so. Sweet,almost too sweet in a cheap way aroma but not too bad. Grainy,maybe wheat but I doubt there is wheat in here,crisp with a moderately sweet finish. Alcohol nicely masked. I’ll take the Polish and Russian Malt Liquors any day over the American versions (aside from Camo). I killed 3 of these bad boys whilst watching Little League Baseball. Update 10-04-08 Upon seeing this in a big 51 oz plastic bottle I grabbed 2 of them. Wow this stuff has changed. Or pehaps it’s the big plastic bottle. Either way it has an alcohol burn. Smells like fermented honey and diesel fuel. Cloyingly sweet. Still drinkable if in a pinch.

Yellow and fizzy. Head virtually runs away, perhaps it knows better. Aroma is almost sickly sweet. Taste is remarkably the same. Alcohol is not disguised at all. Some sort of bitter/astringency at the end, very sharp. Well, I have at least knocked off another beer style.

It pours a clear straw golden color with a decent white head that doesn’t last too long, musty grainy and flowery aromas. Bready and grainy flavors, medium bodied, nice crisp and carbonated mouthfeel, finishes sweet yet clean, a decent malt liquor, I had no problem finishing the bottle.

Smells of grain. Nice golden color. Tastes kind of sweet at first. I can taste some alcohol at the end, but not in a bad way. Tastes pretty smooth considering the strength. Really good for a malt.
