Worse than Evil Eye. Worse than fermented fruit. This will have you on your ass and let me tell you this: Beware of Black Ice. Now, the buzz can be softened by water and food. I did not enjoy this one single bit.

Talky, talky, talky. No more talky. Pours I don’t fucking care cause it right out of the can. Pretty much just sloppy grains a decent boost. Lacking the purple drank of the silver. Medium body. Detroit rock city ya’ll.

This beer is designed to keep the poor in their place, I am convinced of it. Embarking upon a full twenty four ounces of this stuff makes you subservient and stupid and that is why it is produced. Overall, this isn’t bad for a ten plus percent malt liquor and by that I mean it’s horrid but does not taste like it will cause me bodily hardm. It is clear w/ a small and reasonably long-lasting white head. It smells a bit like rubbing alcohol and overripe plum. It is really not the worst thing in the world to smell and better than many barrel aged stouts, for example, because it does not actively smell like cardboard. This being said, the stuff is absolutely wretched tasting. It is strongly alcoholic, heavy, sweet and nearly impossible to choke down. It is kind of like moonshine mixed w/ corn syrup and Bud Ice. but somehow worse than that. That said, there are no real aggressive off flavors it’s just what a super cheap and super strong lager is going to taste like. In this regard it is well done but doing something bad really well should not be a brewer’s highest ambition. At the end of the day, this is a solid choice if you can slug it down in a fifteen minutes and are just looking to get wasted. Otherwise, drink a six pack and get drunk slightly slower.

24oz can picked up at Discount Liquor in Wyoming
Pours clear golden with some white bubbles, not lacing. Aroma isn’t bad, apple juice and citrus. Holy shit the taste is rubbing alcohol, grainy and bitter
No way in I can drink more than a few sips of this, footbalmed.

First off Im not a Craft Beer guy. I m the type of guy that likes to sit back and slam on pappies ol" cough syrup and have to clench my hand to handle the swig. This is one harsh Motha. It puts hair on your chest and knuckles. Light gold. very frothy and smells just like all the alcohol it contains. Drink icy or you will hate yourself. I mean for what they are working with and the cheap price point it aint bad. it has kind of a licorice, medium bitterness, and floral taste. it will hit you though

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
24 oz can shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a crystal clear yellow color with a small white head that disappears quickly. The aroma and flavor had sweet grainy corn, apple juice, solvent and a metallic note. Alcohol heat. It is over 10%, so it has something going for it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can 24 OZ shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear light pale color with a medium frothy white head that mostly diminished with little lacing. Light grainy malt aroma. Light to medium body with a thick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a moderate grainy sweet finish of short duration. Cold wet alcohol with some character.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
24oz can, from a kroger in a more urban neighborhood. Shared with local raters. Clear golden color. Thin ring of off-white head, couple dots of lace. Corn and lemon in the nose. Same in the flavor, some breadiness, and tons of rice. It’s like someone dumped a shot of sake in a regular cheap beer. Moderate sweet, light bitter, and some alcohol heat on the end, but way less bite than expected in the finish, not extremely hard to drink. Medium to bigger body, smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Not as bad as expected.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
24 oz can to taster (generously shared by DrSilverworm). Looks decent; a transparent gold with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells cheap; corn, corn, corn. Seed corn all the way. Tastes less bad (not better). Average on the palate. Could be worse.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
24 oz. can from Atom in the Krampus trade. Call me crazy, but this actually looks pretty damn good in the glass. Nice clear golden color with a fairly thick white head that sticks around for about 30 seconds. The nose is straight up apple juice with some nail polish remover and hot sick…. the flavor is has a ton of hot solvents up front followed by some thin apple, honey and plastic in the finish. Ugh, the finish is disgusting. Sugar, apples, nail polish remover and plastic. No bueno.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very clear amber with a small white head that is gone in an instant. Aromas of sweet apples, cotton candy, while lotta grape drank offered. Taste is sweet, sweet with a fuckton of heat in the sweet finish. Like drinking vodka spiked apple juice. In other words, damn near perfect.
