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.

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.

Can share thanks to Homer321. Pours a crystal clear golden color with minimal white head, dissipates quicky. Very mild, subtle sweet malt character, with light notes of corn. Light sweet crisp adjunct flavor. Watery, not much mouthfeel at all. Overall, not too bad.

24oz to snifter. Crystal clear light yellow with large white head that dies immediately. Aroma is corn/rice/hay with some honey sweetness. Taste is initially sweet with some fruitiness. Pretty solid but the finish is just too sweet. Has some alcohol warning as well.

Kicking of St Georges Day in our Maui apartment with this 40oz beast, not that I got any where near that much of it, 23/04/14.
Clear golden with a moderate off white head that retains well.
Nose is pale malt, grain, cereals, sawdust, gents urinal - specifically Bristol Temple Meads station platform 9.
Taste improves ever so slightly, hint of caramel, popcorn, sugars, grain, straw, papery.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet grainy close.
Pretty Meh indeed !!!

Bottle: Not just any bottle. Hittiní hard on that big FOUR-OH, baby. Drank the neckís worth of beer, then topped it off with some Tropicana Orange Juice. On that solid Brass Monkey tip, or as I like to call it, the Poor Manís Mimosa. When coupled with blunting orange juice, itís very tolerable. In fact, itís actually quite tasty. The beer alone, however, is a metallic, grainy, astringent shit storm.

Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a medium golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not very good.

25oz can, from a Kroger in a more urban neighborhood. Code on the bottom reads "14065 WA39". Yeah, thatís right, this is a twenty-FIVE ounce can. I was on the fence about purchasing this beverage, but once I noticed that this can generously included and extra ounce, I knew my decision was made. Shared with homies. Totally clear golden color. Thin white, kind of bubbly head. Looks decent. Head retains reasonably well, better than expected. Couple ropes of lace, even. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Medium body. Light dry bite to the finish. Some wet bready flavor. Light spicy hop or something. Beery taste I guess, not much flavor at all to it, kind of watery overall, but not terribly offensive flavor. Taste is definitely offensive though. Very big bite at the end gets noticeable more and more as you go. Mouth is signficantly number towards the end of this, seems like my mouth is buzzing from numbness, even. Mouth feels very dry, the beer is not helping at all with that. We had to get glasses of water before continuing. Feeling a very weird buzz from this beer... But I think itís from the adjnucts, not the alcohol. Iíve drinking many other 6% beers faster than this and never had this same feeling. Thereís some kind of chemical in this that is messing people up and maybe even getting them addicted to this stuff, who knows. Interesting, but the taste in the end makes it hard to drink. A noticeable bite to it. Interesting to try, but no way this could make for an every dayír unless we want to go crazy. I feel like if I started drinking this regularly... Iíd be very down on my luck, before I knew it... Friends say "Exceptionally watery. Aroma is like that of banana Runts candy. This tastes like they took a bag of malts, dumped it into a vat of water, and left it out in the rain for several days. Body is kind of like a sugary soft drink. Coasts your whole mouth, not in a good way."

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 40 shared with Yanick. Pours clear yellow with thin white head. Nose and taste of creamed corn, light metal and toasted grain. Light bodied. Brings back memories at least.
