25oz can picked up at Smith’s in SLC
Pours clear straw golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly to a small white ring, no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and corn. Taste of corn, sweet malts, wheat and some fruitiness
Not terrible, thin and watery

Tasted on 1/5/15 from a 25oz can, big thanks to Alex for picking this up in Oklahoma for me. Pours clear pale golden with a thick off white head that slowly recedes to fairly thick, uneven lace. The nose is super light, maybe just a touch of dusty corn malt, but this is the most nothing beer I have ever smelled. The flavor is very light corn malt with just the slightest hint of some bitterness. The body is light with fizzy, soda-like carbonation and a short lightly sticky, slight hint of corn malt finish. I have never had a beer that was so amazingly odorless and flavorless.

Big fat can at James’ for the multi-K tasting. Pours a clear gold with a long staying medium sized white head. Sweet grain and a bit of muskiness. Grainy. Meh.

Can thanks to ibrew2or3. Pours a flat clear gold. Minimal head. Nose is slightly corny. Very cold smelling. Taste is pretty bland. Really like some lightly malted water.

25oz malt likka can share thanks to Homer321. Faint corn adjunct aroma with a good but of rice as well, maybe a small wheaty type character. Brilliantly clear, pale yellow color, with white head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Light smooth rice and corny flavor as well, mild alcohol and moderate carbonation.

Can. Pours gold with a fizzy head. Plain bland nothingness, no real offensive notes, just grainy malt and carbonation. Not horrible, I guess.

So label stated High Gravity Malt Liquor and being 4%, call me intrigued. Picked this up at a Herriman, UT Smith’s grocery store (not a ratebeer place). The can poured with a crystal clear golden body that supports a thin weak white head. The aroma offers up corn, sugar sweetened floral hop notes and a nano second echo of chemical booze. The taste is water thin with bits of mineral water, thin sweet apple like fruity esters, faint corn and a single hop cone per barrel brewed of floral hops. The carbonation helps keep this from being too damn sweet. Overall this has little in the way of chemical booze and zero sense of booziness or boozy heat where this and the overly sweet taste create an iron clad indication that this beer has no redeeming value in any way.
