4/27/13. 40oz bottle thanks to Unclerudy. Traded a Hunahpu’s for this because fuck you. Skunk and sweet malty stomach acid all over, but not bad.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear pale gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of corn and grains with a hint of citrus. Taste is light sweet. Same as aroma. Medium bodied with a thin yet slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Not the best malt likka ive had but definitely not the worst.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2012
That’s right!! 24oz can (and yes, sadly not a screw top 40, darn it) pours crystal clear watery gold with somewhat loose white head of foam. The aroma has cereal to corn flake like notes mixing with sugary floral hops followed by a huge mound of powder sugar. The taste is somewhat sweet and sugary and floral as well as sticky syrupy apple juice. In amid the nearly harmless flavor notes lurks some chemical booze to take you to a certainly all malt liquor finish. You need this.

During a beer tasting we tried this one. Remembrances of the teenage years. Really not so bad. A great palate cleanser! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got this in a nice 40. Double the malts but 5.61? Y bro? Whatever. This one is great for the 5% range. Corn, some grape, a bit of musty basement, and a definite hop edge on this one. Dirty but in a good way. Dry, clean finish. Not bad.

ryanfolty (1780) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Date: March 9, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: BVery Description: Translucent yellow with some head and lacing surprisingly. Aroma was grain and taste was pretty much the same but not much there. A little dry in the finish makes this a tad worse than the regular.

Big fucken 40 oz bottle @ brad’s house, picked up in Wisconsin. Pours a clear light yellow appearance with a white head. Skunky, corn, tangy aroma. Spicy, thick corny, sweet, grape drank. Not that good.
