24oz can to mouth. Nose is a sickening sweet apple and corn and sugary combo that makes me want to vomit diabetes. Taste is initially off-putting to say the least. I donít want to drink more but I must so I can identify why it is so fowl. Starts with a fruity estery flavor. mid palate shows carbonic bite. Finished with a ton of green and red apple. Honestly, if you told me this was apple flavored malt liquor, I wouldnít doubt you juan bit. I have never had something that tastes like candied apple so much. Wowe.

Not the worst malt liquor out there but also not good. This has a strange sweet apple to the flavor but isnít good.

24 oz. can purchased at Quicky Mart on 132. A variant, I must be blessed. Pours clear yellow. No head. Aroma was alcohol and apples (really). Taste was Reddís Apple Ale (sweet) with slight alcohol burn.

Wow. This is super sweet. The aroma is musty grain and grass. The appearance is dark yellow, like dehydrated piss with soft carbonation and a quickly dissipating head. The taste is like apple cider but thin. The body is medium and the finish is short on the palate with no trace of bitterness. This is not boozy for its ABV.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2016 Drink it warm for the win! But seriously, itís about on par with Stack 101 and Camo in the "bottom of the barrel malt likka" dept. slimy in feel. Looks pretty as a dark yellow. It;s not that bad, just drink it

24 oz can from Fastrip Nose is bubblegum, green apples, and a light grassy note. Clear yellow with a medium white head. Flavor is lightly sweet and a hint of caramel.

Wife picked up this 10% variant in Lincoln NE!
Pours a hazy gold color with a big head that fizzes out into a whisper fairly quickly.

The aroma evokes sweet apple cider, grape, some corn, a little spice and a respectable alcohol booziness.

The flavor comes fruit forward again with apple cider & a little grape. The alcohol is pretty noticeable but oddly tolerable. Itís got a weird dry vermouth like character to it as well. A touch of banana shows up as it warms.

Easily one of the less hard to drink High Ŗoost malts out there. Taking it down 2% did wonders for this one.

Pours golden color. Thatís it. No head at all. No lacing. Bubbles rising from bottom, thatís about it.

Aroma is whatever. You can pretend all you want. Banana, grape skin, jolly rancher, green apple, malts, hops...I suggest using your imagination. Maybe itíll be better for you.

Taste isnít as bad as I expected. Donít really taste any alcohol. Again, use your imagination, to get the desired taste. But itís mostly corn, and more corn. Sweet a little, and wet cardboard.

Mouthfeel is rough. Itís smooth, but hard to swallow. It burns a little going down, and I feel numbness in my jaws when I do.

Overall, its really bad. But I understand why they make it, and it serves that purpose well. However, Iím not looking to drink this again anytime soon. Itís a little too harsh, but the aftershock (heh heh!) is good. If you need something for that purpose, itís a winner.

Noxious aroma of corn and gasoline. Taste-wise, itís actually not that bad. For a 10% malt liquor, itís surprisingly smooth. Wouldnít want to drink an entire thing of this, though; I sampled and then simply passed it onto someone else.
