40oz bottle. Ice cold. Dark pee color. (Someone else already loaned it..) White head. Even at this cold temp, alcohol is pretty apparent. Not overly sweet. Grain, rice, corn, sugar, alcohol. Vaguely unpleasant, particularly the finish. There are other malt liquors id go to before this one.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 Drank a 24 ounce can of this one recently. Smell was sort of a damp hay, bread and sweetness. Some alcohol and funk to the smell as well. Taste follows the smell: more sweetness than the smell but thereís the alcohol taste, some mild funk/and or skunk. Hay, grass, corn, bread. Smooth for the high percentage. Interesting aftertaste that goes away. Refreshing and easy to drink. I liked it. This one is a recurring purchase for me.
7/23/15: When you drink this from a 40, there is literally like no taste or smell until youíre in the swill. Then it tastes pretty bad/strong. But that was surprising.

Pours an apple juice color. Itís hard to describe the color. Apple juice, thatís it. It has about a one finger head, no real lacing. This is coming from a 25 oz can into a 16 oz glass. First pour was a dud. Second pour helps things out as far as aroma and taste goes. Anyhow, the head doesnít last. It is what it is. Nothing impressive.
Aroma is alcohol. I smell breadinesss. There maybe some bubble gum in there.
Taste is sweet thatís the biggest thing. I certainly taste the alcohol. Itís smooth. Itís full bodied. Iím not picking up anything telling as far as unique flavor characteristics. Itís metallic, but I guess thatís from the can. Of course the high alcohol content of this thing voids anything you might pick up.
Mouthfeel is smooth. Itís very smooth. For the amount of alcohol in this thing, itís surprisingly smooth and sweet. Itís full bodied. Itís bold. Itís strong. Its very dry.
Overall, itís not bad, Itís hard to rate really. The alcohol is kicking in, so Iím closing now.

49 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear yellow with a white head of foam. Not a bad looking beer. The aroma is corny, sweaty, and a little greasy. The taste is not much better. Mostly weird sweetness in there. Medium carbonation and big body.

This would be fine to get drunk on in any situation. The sort of thing you might have at a picknick or an outdoor ball. Itís golden w/ a small head. Itís a little bit syrupy w/ some raw grain alcohol in there but nothing too bad. You also get some of that wierd grape jelly kind of character common in higher gravity malts. Mouthfeel is oddly creamy and satisfying after a fashion, making for a boozy but drinkable beer. This is a work of art compared to many spirit barrel aged beers and that is just a sad fact we will all have to get used to.

25 oz can, inbev is giving us an extra ounce over competitors. Clear gold in color. Really a non-offensive high gravity alt liquor so credit them for that, this still sucks balls though.

Decent amount of white head that quickly reduces to a ring. A few lacings.
Bought a 25 OZ. can poured into a pint glass. Aroma is a basic grain/corn feel to it. The appearance is pretty appealing, a nice golden color. Taste, is not unpleasant, a real surprise considering its reputation and cost. Smooth but not a weak flavor. Palate, is slightly carbonated and enjoyable. A very respectable beer, a good American malt liquor.

Strong corn nose. Some light white frothy head and a clear deep golden body. Flavour is smooth, full creamed corn and slight hefe. Oddly not bad. Better than many malt liquors of this class.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured in to lager glass just because. Pours a whiz yellow with a super head and enough carbonation for a pepsi factory. Aroma is just metal and corn and ash, UGH. Taste is cardboard with sweet cheap malt and corn. hardly any bitterness. Only for bums and broke underage kids.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a clear yellow color with no head whatsoever which means thereís no lacing.
The smell was grainy sweet but also like candy/sugary sweet.
The taste was sweet through the candy/sugary stuff.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with not much to being worthy of having any sort of sessionability about it. Did it sit too heavy but showed a somewhat not too heavy of a body for me to say what I earlier said?
Overall, weird beer, then again, it is a malt liquor, probably wouldnít have it again.
