It’s malt liquor...by law it should be cheap, sweet, and get you f**ked up pretty darn fast. This is no exception. Coppery colored with absolutely no head. On tap at the brewery. Smells sweet, like corn syrup and sugar-water. Tastes even sweeter, lots of residual sugars with very little bitterness...even then it would seem that it comes mainly from the alcohol which seems to leave a bit of a bite. Leaves a sweet and corny aftertaste. Beats Old-8ball hands down. Matches the style very well, however the style in itself is absolutely horrific.

Draft @ Uber; 2011 vintage; crystal clear faint gold with trace white head; light corn, super drinkable, light malt, a little more burn going down than I remember from previous vintages; sweet dry malt, lemons with a little corn in the finish; digging the slight twang in the nose; decent craft edition overall but like most, far from the real deal

A light sweet aroma. This is a pretty easy-drinking beer. A good starter for the day. Very smooth for a malt liquor.

Hoo-yeah! Sunflower, bright, cheerful aroma. Sunny vibrant gold. Great clean corn character, not too sweet, not too dry. Finishes a bit leafy, a touch sweet, and works out great for me.

Shaker pint draft at Naked City Taphouse in Seattle, Washington. pour is a clear darker golden with a smallish white head. Aroma of corn along with light sweet malt. Behind that is a touch of floral sweetness. Cleanish nose. Taste is sharp on the corn sweetness - tastes like a malt liquor should I guess. Flavor is aided by a nice floral grassiness to the finish. As it warms, an almost grapey sweetness comes out. When warm, the sweetness was a bit too much for me. Palate is medium to thin bodied with a decent carbonation level.

on tap at elysian fields, got to have two pints thanks to super generous group. Really enjoyable, malts present but not overpowering. Somewhat barleywine ish without being overly sweet.

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Tap at Elysian FIelds before Hawks game. Was awesome to see Chris Johnson go over 2000 on our crap ass team Hoo fucking ray! Nose is sweet, corny with cidery notes, a hint of bread, and grass too. Pours golden orange, thin foam, a little lace. Sweet flavors of corn, apple cider, grainy malts, light grass. Lingering sugary sweetness. Definitely to style. I would prefer more aggression in my malt liquor, as well as alcohol. It was a palatable malt liquor in the mold of Magnum or King Cobra.
