1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Oh yeah another 40 for the Brown Bag collection.Nice golden color,the white head dissappeared faster then a Drive by in Cabrini Green.The aroma actually wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be.Malty and a little corny with a mild fruit side coming through,and could it be,but yes a few hops.The flavor wasn’t anything special,corny and lightly malty with a mild fruit and alcohol presence as it warmed up it seemed to get nastier with a mild syrupy feel to it and a mild medicinal side coming through.It was worth a try but little more then that,Nasty.

40, straight from the bottle, served right out of the paper bag. Well, I thought this was okay, but that might have been due to the fact that I had had 6 or 8 drinks before this last night. Anyway... Color is of iced tea, and there is a surprisingly thick, white head that lasts well. Aroma is apples and sugar. Flavor is pretty much just nondescript sweetness with no hops and no aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel.

Aroma of apple juice? Pale yellow colour, tiniest of white heads. Almost no flavour, watery, poor.

Clear bronze. White head. Sweet, apple juice aroma. Light, thin body. Very sweet, cidery flavour though very bland. Seems to be missing the cardboard & gasoline...mmmmmmmmm...cardboard & gasoline....

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright white head, clear golden look. Head vanishes quickly. Clean aroma, which you would not expect if you read label (malt liquor), sweet, plain lager. Some alcohol that mostly is well masked, clear light body. Fairly plain, not much gasoline effect. Sorry drunkards, this one will disappoint you. others might surprise .

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light amber colour...looks too drinkable to be a malt liquor. Cidery aroma is a nice start, but the body is light, and after a faint ciderraunch note it gets very watery. Too bland - it just doesn't have that "kick you in the nuts" character that I look for in a good malt liquor.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I love malt liquor, but...Although some people swear by this goo, it was the worst liquid I ever ingested. I put half the 40 in the freezer just to stop it's evil. Thick and swirling with wheat(?) or something. Sickly sweet and putrid. Any buzz was offset by nausia and mental anguish. I'd drink Robetussin over this any day!

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is a rating based on memories from ten years ago, or more. I recall that Crazy Horse produced a serious inebriation if one were to consume 80-120 ounces. Beyond that, everything is a bit foggy. One drinks malt liquor because it is affordable and produces intoxication, no? This certainly fits that bill.
Strangely, I've since found that this does not appear to be available locally (Ohio), though it was very common just a few states away in Wisconsin. Or maybe I just haven't noticed it here...

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Wreaks of dirty water that could be found underneath a urinal. Gorgeous copper golden hue. Sweet urine, grain macro taste. Slick velvety body, finishing with pleasantly bland sweet lingering urine. Yup, this is pure as turd malt liquor. Great for frat party or for giving away to unwanted guests.
