2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the 24 fl oz can. So, Genny makes a malt liquor. I thought their Genny Ice was their version of the style. Yellow pour. White fizzy head. Aroma o toasted biscuits, corn, grassy hops, and a little metal. It smells like a malt liquor does. The body is bit better than than watered down but it is smooth. Odd sort of vegetable oil flavor and sweet toasted bread. Not a boozy feel so that is an extra gold star. It is not meant to be a craft beer. It is meant to be a malt liquor and as far as those go, this is right up there with the best.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
On a Friday afternoon. Served ICE cold. Thankfully faint sweet aroma. Corn and sugar. Flavor is thankfully not overly sweet. Less ’artificial flavor’ tasting than others. But this also means nothing masking the corn, grain, and sugar flavor. Its not the worst I’ve had.

Drank from a twenty four ounce can. Terrible malt liquor aroma and for malt liquor (which I’ve been known to enjoy myself some) pretty low qualty taste.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
The appearance is a clear yellow with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends corn, dough yeast, and doughy malts, and the taste is mildly sour with the aftertaste simply being a toned-down version of the flavor. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation with a strong bite.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I’m guessing this is a new variant on the original. Decent nose is fruity, expressive, negative for corn. The look is clear, gold, nice retention. We’re off to a decent start. Very sharp abrasive intro, corn wallop. Then it calms and mellows and is neutral. Not bad.

Git ‘in my malt liquor on, hell yeah. This 24oz can pours with a clear gold body that supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up apples, pears and honey as well as sugar sweetness and a sliver of chemical booze. The taste is similar and while very cold delivers sweet sugary fruity esters and only a vague hint of Noble Hops. This is oddly on the thin and watery side with very little sense of the ABV. If this wasn’t so Malt Liquor sweet this would be pretty nice.

Spent 5 hours putting the kids dresser together so to celebrate crack a can of booze juice. Pours deep urine yellow with frothy head. Nose is stale and rubbing alcohol. Tastes a touch better of corn, grains, cardboard and skunk cabbage. Alcohol finish and leaves sting the tongue.

Can via trade. Nose is a candied apple and sugar. Taste is less offensive but not good by any means. Just straight boos juice.

Reviewed from notes.
Oh boy, malt liquor, okay, well uh... here we go.
This was poured into a chalice (haha, just kidding). This was poured into a pint glass most of the time I had it. Some times I tried it out of the bottle, but had to venture out of drinking it in some sort of glass just to get a look at it.
The appearance was a pure clear yellow color with no head. Fast rising carbonation was seen surfacing into nothing.
The smell, wow pure malty sweet alcohol with a grainy sort of cooked corn.
The taste was overly sweet through the alcohol and cooked corn.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, but that alcohol hits ya and boy oh boy, yeah, there’s not much sessionability about this one. Ya pound for the sake of getting it down (yikes), or you could drain pour like a lot of people I know do. The carbonation pretty much rapes your tongue and strips it of its "malt liquor" virginity (if this is your first one).
Overall, yes, this was my first malt liquor I’ve actually ever had and quite possibly my last, actually only for comparative notes, I did have some since then but will always remember this is the one that broke me in.
