Can. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of corn, alcohol, and a bit of malt. The flavor is very sweet with notes of corn syrup and a bit of metal, alcohol, and malt, leading to a dry, bitter, and metallic finish.

Forced to drink from a massive bottle of this by Tubes, thanks a lot guys. Clear gold color, fluffy head with good retention. Aroma of air. Taste of water with one drop of cleaning fluid spilled into it. Definitely on of the better malt liquors I have tasted.

Can shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. You’re welcome, friends! Pours clear - crystal clear! - pale yellow with a nice, creamy white head. The aroma holds sugary white bread, corn and freshly milled grains. Medium sweet flavor with sugary white bread, faint hay bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with further white bread, delicate white sugar, pale grains. Tasty malt liquor. Excellent drinkability for the style.

Can at the Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Leighton for this one. Straw to gold with fizzed head. Sweet liquor, it wouldn’t be amiss in the hands of the local wino’s. Really pretty bad. Tried it, moving on.

Forty from the premiere source of forties in Charlottesville. Huzzah! Pours a very pale golden color with a thin head. Poor head retention and lacing. Looks bad even by malt liquor standards. Aroma is overwhelmingly grass and hay with faint sweet malts. Something almost like green bananas in there. Taste is that same unripe bananas with very faint husky grains and grass, and not much else.

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 hasn’t stared to bottle forties yet. Would love to see hobos pounding clear liter bottles of Mimosa.
