0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (grain), trace hops (herbs), with notes of plastic/rubber, DMS, fusel alcohol, apple.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Yow, this is some foul foul stuff. Disgusting chemical-and-fuel spill aroma, with a similarly dirty aftertaste that makes me wonder how people can actually choke it down. I mean, really, honestly...how can anyone actually consume this? This was one of the most painful reviews I’ve done in a long time. This doesn’t even smell safe to drink.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 Rerate More throat clenching and oily this time around. Original Beverage Warehouse, Roswell, Ga - 24 oz aluminum black, ghetto ready can. Actually pours quite well - dark golden with a frothy, slightly pithy white head. Typical wet paper bag aroma, common of this ilk with a bit of alcoholized fruit juicy notes. Flavor is not throat clenching, some underlying Hawaiian Punch fruitiness and a hint of syrupy maltiness. 24 oz was more than I could handle though, turns boozy, syrupy and too fruity sweet near the end. Mouthfeel is quite thin, as is fusel alcohol. Approach with caution.

Not as bad as some of the other reviews, it is what it is. Gets the job done, if that’s what your looking for.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 23 oz can this beer poured a dark golden color with a large yellow-white head. The aroma is sour tangy macro odor with a hint of light fruits. The flavor is bitter, sour and tangy macro crap. The finish is strong and a bit revolting.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
In trying to find some positive here, this beer comes in a cool looking can. Aroma was almost nonexistent but it was a decent looking beer. Clean and crisp looking and it had a white soapy head. This beer also had the least body of any I had ever sampled. It had some light golden color but was almost see through. Even the alcohol content was overrated. I have had high alcohol beer before but this one had almost no effect.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2010 Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this canned greatness.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is strong corn. No doubt what this beer is brewed with. The flavor is very sweet corn with the slightest hint of orange citrus. Light mouthfeel and medium carbonation. For a macro-produced malt liquor this is not terrible, but compared to regular beers, this is one to avoid.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a 40 oz bottle wrapped in a paper bag. No hiss when cracked. The aroma is gross corn malt and a little heat. Is a chemically dark orange color. Here goes for flavor... Just tastes spritzy sweet with a nice corny mouthfeel and a little bit of that signature AB flavor coming through. Light and watery. I guess it could be worse.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
(24oz can thanks to blutt59) so low it doesn’t even have a percentile score! pale yellow, long lasting bubbles oddly enough with excellent lacing. This is gonna be good! Nose is however musty, corn, rotten, trash and sugar. What a delectable combination! Taste of rotten corn, watery grain, odd toastiness with mossy/musty finish. Pretty gross. Thanks a lot Bob!!
