0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
24 oz can. Pours a semi cloudy yellow with a large white quickly vanishing head and a lot of carbonation. It smells of corn and has a tart candy aroma and also smells stale. Itís very sweet and the sweetness almost seems to come from sugar rather than malt. This is pretty bad and doesnít taste much like beer. It seems to be giving me a headache as I drink it. I poured this out after a few sips.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
40oz widemouth. aroma is grass and vegetal matter and some weak, wet cereal grains. not much corn there, surprisingly. appearance looks like babycham or some other horrible perry/cider with loads of nucleation sites ripping bubbles like a scuba training tank. filmy head doesnt last long. flavor is relatively neutral and metallic which is actually a compliment, corn sludge is not out in full force, hardly at all even. however while it is a crisp palate it is not necessarilyl clean, leaving behind a funk mouth like a moldy basement that brings back the cabbage from the aroma along with some apple rind or mealy rotting pear/apple. APPENDIX: as this bottle wears on, i find that there is a nearly pleasant aftertaste of almost crunchy candi sugar that returns with every sip. +0.1 pts.

Itís a malt liquor kind of evening. Produces a big loose head that recedes quickly when vigorously poured into a dimpled mug. The color is golden. The aromatic qualities of apple, corn, copper, and alcohol can be detected from three feet away. I feel like Iím honestly trying to like the flavor of this less, I mean there are not a lot of pleasantries or redeeming qualities about it, but I was braced for much worse. In some strange way Iím kind of disappointed this isnít more nasty, the corn is there, the biting alcohol is there. The classic over sweetness is there but it is more controlled than in many Iím trying to find anything defining about the malt of hop characters and basically coming up sort. The beer is lightly tart I suppose.
The palate is actually pretty smooth and miles from watery, I remember this beer being very harsh and difficult to drink but I donít find it to be this way five or six years later.
All of this of course is within the first five oz or so, Iíve got 35 left to decide how much I really dislike this beer.

Tall boy. Apple juice aroma. Slightly sweet corny flavor. Really not all that bad.

I canít believe this was this good. If I was going for a cheap drink to get me drunk (fast) that wasnít offensive this is what Iíd go with.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber with not much head to speak of. Aroma of sweet corn, grain, and a slight aroma of spice. Flavor was actually very surprising... I canít lie. In a blind taste test I actually gave this decent marks. I was very surprised to find out his was a malt liquor. I wonít be picking this up any time soon, but Iíve definitely had worse.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2010 Tall can that could easily be mistaken for a can or Arizona Iced Tea and purchased at a bodega. Pours pale straw color. Is viscous and tastes like syruppy fermented corn and skunk. The king of the cheap garbage beers I drank when I was 14.

Thanks for the can Kevin, not sure what I did to you to deserve this. Clear apple juice body with soda-like brown head, quickly diminishing. Nose is putrid spoiled apple cider, intensely heavy with earthy, dirty acetone and drying paint. Taste is no different - rotting red apples and corn phenols. Thin, syrupy texture.
