2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Letís do some beer math: I paid 99 cents for a 24 ounce can of this. Thatís the equivalence of 2 regular beers (at 12 ounces each). BUT this has 12% alcohol which is about 2.5 times more ethanol than regular beer. 2.5 the alcohol X 2 times the ounces=5. One 24 ounce can of this has the alcohol content of 5 regular beers. Where are you buying 5 regular beers for only a buck? College students rejoice!!! You can get blitzed all night for only a dollar or two! Orange pour, no lasting head. Smells like wart medicine, tastes like rotting garbage and burns like a mother fuck going down. So what? Someday while youíre drinking a Sam Adams youíll reminisce about how this was the only beer you could afford and what good times you had.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Decent apple aroma. Clear golden, no head. Apple with a pervasive flavor of plastic, from start to finish. Alcohol magnified. This is really pretty disgusting, although the Jackhammer was drinkable. I will uprate, however, because the picture of it served in a snifter is fucking hilarious! A snifter, really? I think Iím making that my Facebook photo.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is corn, grain, sugar, and alcohol. Flavor is sugar, fruit, alcohol, and corn. Rather sweet. The alcohol is not as in your face as I expected, but it is certainly there.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Petrol Gas Station - 24 oz can. Can looks like it belongs on the cover of an Incredible Hulk comic book. Medium golden pour - little to no head fizzes away as it pours. Aroma of cheap gumballs - not offensive - just not beer like. Flavor has some sweet undertones and is not completely offensive as I expected considered the 12% alcohol - expected a boozefest. some corn-squeezing sweetness and a bit of cotton candy. Mouthfeel is a bit harsh. Good one to "get your drink on". Worth the $2.59 for a 24 oz can if you are just looking for a quick buzz.

Solan beast! Light orange pour. Pungent sugar bomb aroma! Alcohol and rotting garbage taste. Really high quality!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Courtesy SoLan. Pours a bright golden yellow color topped by a small, bubbly white head of foam. The aroma is all corn on this one with notes of corn malt, corn syrup, and a metallic note. The flavor follows and is straight up nasty corn malt and syrup. The heavy corn malts and syrup sweeten things up beyond drinkability and the alcoholic heat makes it worse. Medium bodied with good carbonation and sweet, boozy finish. Interesting to try, but I couldnít drink more than a couple sips.

Price-to-ABV makes this what it is... if offers little more.
Itís a malt liquor, period... thereís some metal and corn, and the ghost of some fruits... if I were to buy it again, I might mix it with pineapple or apple juice to complement those ghost notes. Otherwise, the acohol burn is the big feature.
If I had to get drunk, this would be a good first and second step.

Solan deserves to feel the wrath of 1000 needles for buying this drink. One of the worst things I have ever tasted. Motor oil, corn and cleaning products. Just horrible.

Well, this ainít gonna set the world on fire by any means, but it is certainly less foul than I was expecting. The appearance is ghastly, I hope that they didnít pay a graphic artist for that 24 oz can. Beer is clear and specimen colored. The smell was just, I donít know, malt likka - except with a little vanilla tinge. The flavor, basically, is that of a cheap vodka boilermaker in cheap lager. Machine oil viscosity. Finish is warming and mercifully short. Ex-Petro station, Bradfordville.
