City Slicker is probably the smoothest malt liquor around. It could pass for an American lager with no hop character. It’s not bad, but be aware it’s significantly lighter than most malt liquors and will not get you from point A to B as fast.

Pale yellow color with no head. Aroma of spoiled sugar. Tasted like moldy sweet corn.

This smells like shit. No really it does. The taste is rather smooth but it has some sort of paper thing going on with a bunch of corn. Its ok one of the easier malt liquors to drink.

Sweet Aroma. Sweet Grains Much Better Then I was Expecting. Sweetness Seems to Cover Up any Skunky-ness...or Most anyways. a Thumb Up to Wisconsin for Making a Swill Beer That Was Better Then it Was Expected to be.

Picked this up in a liquor store in Superior, Wisconsin. The mullets behind the counter were probably wondering what this yuppie was doing buying a 24 oz malt liquor! Slick name for a malt liquor - no macho animal names for this beast. Wonder who the target market is for this one? Hard to tell with the pimp hat wearing mo-fo standing on the street corner. Has a light golden-yellow appearance with a soapy, slightly thick white head. Wet cardboard aroma with some funky malt byproduct smell in the back end. Sweet, sticky flavor, with a lot of adjuncts - think I saw a kernel of corn floating around in there. Has some bland fruitiness in there as well. If you close your eyes, it almost tastes like watered sown orange koolaid. Does City make a decent beer?

Ahhhh yes. Malt liquor. When one thinks of malt liquor they tend to think of 40s in a brown bag. Hangin’ out of the street corner and sellin’ some crack. Or perhaps some poor college student looking for a cheap buz. City Slicker is king of malt liquor. This beer is what all malt liquors should be like. It has a sweet corn aroma and taste, with a gentle hint of mildew. It comes in a large bottle and it will kick you in the ass. Billy Dee only wishes he drank City Slicker.

Light straw color with a diminishing fizzy white head. Cookie dough and light flower aromas. Almost too sweet and perfumy. Flavors are lightly sweet and again rather flowery. No real malt flavors. Alcohol does not seem to be as overbearing in this malt liquor as in others of its ilk. But the lack of malt disappoints. Rather dry and meaningless finish. Had the choice between the 24 oz. can and the 40 oz. bottle. 24 ounces of this is more than enough to slake any ones thirst.

I’m going to save half of this brew for Thursday night for sure.My personal experience with these shows that ice cold is the only way to sample them,so icey it is.Nice golden color,small white head that faded fast but left a little foam behind.The aroma is malty and citrus (lemon) with a slight corn appearance,mildly sweet as well.It actually has a very nice flavor in the beginning.Malty sweet and fruity with a mild hop presence,with it getting a little bitter in the middle but not too badly.The after taste is a little sweet and fruity,with the alcohol only coming on briefly at best.It’s a little thin bodied but very nicely done and definately a brew that can be taken out of the paper bag.Thanks to GrainbeltGuzzler for sending me another nice brew.
