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.

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.

24oz can consumed while driving. Huge grape drank notes. High carb. Sweet. Corn. High boost. Very nice.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 3-17-12 -
Poured from can into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a lighter pure white head. The head fades fast giving way to some lacing.
Smell – Corn with the slightest bit of booze.
Taste – Sweet corn mixed with some breadiness up front. These tastes last through the middle and to the end, but lighten as the taste advances. Toward the end an alcohol flavor really becomes potent and lingers in the aftertaste. Along with the lingering of the alcohol there are flavors of metal and aldehydes. It starts out alright, but leaves one unpleasant aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with normal carbonation. Not much else to say.
Overall – Nothing I would do again. If you feel like a malt (which sometimes I do) I would not take this one. Go with something else.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Krampus can from UDBeernut, thanks!) Pours out a clear gold color with a large white head that slowly settles to a thin cap. Aroma smells of green apple, Sprite, and the interior of a dusty car in southern MN. Waves of nostalgia are elicited. Flavor is really sweet right up front, with a lot of corn and caramel apple like flavors, before it just drops away to a watery, lightly hoppy finish. Not really getting much in the way of booze here, so this is actually pretty easy to drink. Maybe too easy. Overall I don’t find this to be really all that offensive, but I wouldn’t go as far to say that I’d ever want to drink this again.

Can. Aroma is sweet sugars. Taste is sweet, heavily carbonated but really quite tasty. Ugly yellow pour.
