1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks fine; a transparent gold with white head. Smells and tastes like an imperial Natty Ice; cheap and skunky. Average (at best) on the palate. Not good, but what do you expect for a $1.29 beer thatís 8.1%?

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours clear, honey gold with an active, yellowish head.
Aroma is corn, grain, malt.
Taste is sweet corn malt, water....
A slight presence of alcohol.
Not pleasant at all.....now I must turn my efforts to locating the 12% version....not all whales are pretty.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A/B claims this beer is brewed for a distinctive bold taste. Iím not so sure about that.
Pours clear light gold with a rocky white head that quickly descends to a ring of bubbles. The overall impression I get is Imperial Bud Lite, but while the alcohol content has gone up, the hops have somewhat improbably gone down, leaving you with a taste that is polite but eminently forgettable.. Light hints of toffee and banana in the nose. The taste seems to follow that lead. Not even vaguely crisp finish. No major flaws... this beer is actually tolerable.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can thanks to blutt59. The smell is really grainy, corn, sweet, and ugh. The look is watery, straw yellow like, thin white head. The taste is corn, fruits, alcohol, and gross.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
24 oz can poured into a fancy tulip glass. Smell is vegetal, sweet maltiness. This is the sweetest malt liquor I have had to date for sure. Potent sweet ricey/corny thing going on. Bready and actually really smooth and inoffensive. 8.1% x 24 oz for a shade over a $1. Huh.

This has some malt to it. I find it induces excellent sleep. I have difficulty with my memory when I drink a couple of tall-boys of Hurricane HG. Not a bad flavor.

smells like a cheap beer, and tastes like one too.. tastes a bit sweet with ok flavor on front end... then an astringent taste on the back-end that kills anything worthwhile

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very golden, with a nice looking big fluffy white head.
The aroma is doughy with some banana stuff happening... banana bread-like... The aroma has some alcohol and a touch of corn.
The flavor is actually fairly smooth... Itís got the alcohol and the sweet corniness, but the grape drink is really subdued and nothing (at least at this temperature) is horridly offensive. Again with the mild bananas.
