GIT BIT!!! King Cobra---The Standard of Forties. The cap twists off with a crisp snap of fizz, unleashing the reassuring scent of skunked budweiser! King Cobra is fizzy, has a relatively light body, and a taste of ricey schwag. Crisp finishing that is drier than just about any other forty. Only BIG BEAR beats King Cobra in this genre, but if you canít find BIG BEAR you canít go wrong with this. My armpits ALWAYS smell just like super-skunked beer the day after one or two of these treats.

Decent stuff, dry typish with a a slight aftertaste that im iffy on, decent buzz, killer label, definitely better than A-B flagship brews bud and bud light, theres malts id recommend over this but theres some id recommend it over, worth an occasional cop but not on a regular basis, A-B malt Hurricane is better

Back in the day these were $1.39 in Ohio so with tax I came in under $1.50. I still buy this now and then when my thirst is powerful and my wallet is light. It has a lot of body, all sweetness and mostly adjuncts. Itís not very smooth but itís also not the worst in that department. No refinement here but a drinkable cheap malt liquor.

"stronger aroma and flavor in this one than some other 40ís...but that is NOT...i repeat NOT, a good thing. If you like this "beer" please seek help from a mental health professional."

Folks letís be real. 2.29 for 40oz of goodness. No brainer. Also donít forget to finish this prior to becoming warm which brings me to the game 40 ounces in under 10 minutes.

Thanks to the Simpsonville, Sc 7/11 for this tick. Right out of the can. Nose is corn, tin. Taste is sweet, mostly malt and corn. Very much not off putting which is all you can hope for in these ml. Body is medium, medium boost.

Transfer from BA review on 4-20-13-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance Ė The beer pours a golden amber color with a tiny white head. The head fades almost instantly with only a trace of lace.
Smell- The aroma is mainly of a sweet corny smell with some lighter hints of a bready nature as well as a little bit of a metallic smell.
Taste - The taste begins with a mix of a malty and corny taste with a light hint of caramel sweetness. Surprisingly, it maintains this flavor largely to its end where only a faint cardboard yet somewhat very lightly citrus hopped flavor come to the taste leaving a somewhat crisp taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. A slightly lighter creaminess and mouthfeel may have suited the corny and lightly citrus and cardboard flavors better as well as made it more drinkable. Even with this said, the feel is not awful for the brew.
Overall Ė Not an overall massively tasty brew, but it is wicked cheap (~ 3 dollars for a 6 pack) and is drinkable, so it suits a need and a situation. For what it is, it is pretty decent.

Itís really not that bad at all ..... it reminds me of Budweiser in flavor, just a slightly more alcoholic twang to it... I only had it a couple of times but itís ok for the price (less than $2 where I live) . Drink it cold... put it in a glass itíll taste better in my opinion that way.

40 FL OZ. ($1.99) this is total boosh and straight up bum beer. the drink of choice among homeless and underage drinkers. An overwhelming slap in the face to serve anyone who enjoys good beer. drink at your own risk.
