Big Fucken forty @ home, thanks to the malt likka trading king, blackipa. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with a tiny white head. Cotton candy, orange citrusy, a bit corny, smooth aroma. A bit spicy, well carbonated, juicy fruit, citrusy flavor. Totally fucking swillable. Too bad Shaun Hill hasnít stared to bottle forties yet. Would love to see hobos pounding clear liter bottles of Mimosa.

Clear gold color, outta a 40. Nose is mostly adjuncts of corn and rice, sweet with no hops at all. Really just somethin to swill while hanging out, nothin special at all but ok to get buzzed out on!

Bracing for the smooth taste. gold. Bit of a white head inside the 40 itself. Smooth, clean, just a touch sweet. Minimal grape drank, no metal. Swills good. Crushed in 10 minutes. Nice.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
THOUGHTS: My favorite junk beer, but I still canít give it a good score. I canít believe Iíd never rated this before. Nice and cheap. Great for knocking back ice cold while watching playoff games in any sport. The colder the better.
TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear, light yellow with nice carbonation and a small, white head that mostly diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma had moderate grain; light grassy and metallic hops; slight cardboard; cooked ham; a little butter; and something a little soured. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter; while the finish was slightly sweet, light to moderately sour and lightly bitter with a short duration. There was sour malt, vegetable, grain, sugar water, and slightly grassy and metallic hops. The light to medium body was watery and slightly syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

Yea good luck trying to digest this stuff. Brutal malt/booze flavor and totally crushes your guts. Yes, itís cheap, but honestly, just donít drink if this is all you can afford. If you really need this, you have a problem. Come see me, Iíll get you an IPA and get you on the right path.

40oz from gas station. RBSH2 rate. Couldn't find the high gravity version. Pours clear golden straw with big carbonation and a much rockier than expected sheen, white head. Decent lacing. Smells like frat house carpet on Sunday afternoon. Big detergent and sugar cube. Taste is watery, super bland, essentially water. Less beer taste than Busch Light. Super weak palate.

5/1/12. Big olí 40 thanks to GT2 as help for RBSH2!
This beer does pour both clear and gold
Barely a head that I can see
Youíd think an elephant took a drink
And this beer came from his pee
Next my nose shall take this gift
and see if it shall win
It reeks of corn and applesauce
This truly is a sin
Another sniff and magic appears
Strong fusels, alcohols, and rotten flesh
This lager burns the nose inside
Itís certainly not A-Bís best
The story of the taste unfolds
Like a child reads OT-D
A glimmer of surprise and hope
Followed by treachery
It hits the tongue with corn and fuel
Not things youíd find in beer
Like an ancient man in diapers
Your tongue should not be near
The palate is big and mighty
Sparkling after the plop
A burning sensation tingles the tongue
After merely a single drop
Alas the body is thick and strong
Not like a stout, but plenty thick
A lesser man might take a minute
And test it with his... stick.
Overall, youíd better scroll past
This beer is not for you
Iím scared to death for the morrow
This beer is going to make me poo
He went like one that hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn:
A sadder and a wiser man
He rose the morrow morn.

From a 40. Not much aroma. Big clear yellow pour, v ery little visible carbonation. First taste is not as bad as expected, must be quite fresh. Pretty good sizzle on the uptake. Some slight indication of rude alky but not too bad overal so far.

I donít consider myself a beer snob. Iíll give any beer a genuine fair trial. Here goes: Can: Smells shitty, with a lot of garbage disposal qualities. Piss yellow, thick lacing head. Sugary sweetness on the front end. Artifical chemical flavor. Processed paper flavor. Iíve had malt liquors that were thicker, hotter, and more disgusting. This was palatable, but still very bad.
