Probably one of my favorite 40’s I love craft beer but I also like to kill a 40 from time to time ...what kills me is beer snobs putting it down because it comes in a 40oz bottle and isn’t super hoppy or have fruity aromas ...get over yourself beer is beer and I respect all forms ...cheers

40oz from Food Lion. Golden hue, with fully diminishing white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Aroma of water and corn. Taste of sweet corn and malt with a dry finsih. It really didn’t taste much different from a Bud or Bud Light which is okay if you are trying to get a solid buzz. For less than $3 bucks it isn’t that bad and was a good beer to enjoy when your cooking on the grill on a Saturday night.

Bottle 1,18ltr: Deep golden clear colored brew with an very faintly sweet bitter taste with some hints of some corn. Mine first Malt Liquor from the U.S.A. and immediate the blandest one, but an nice label.

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

Shanebrews (210) - Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
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. It’s not very smooth but it’s 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 40’s...but that is NOT...i repeat NOT, a good thing. If you like this "beer" please seek help from a mental health professional."

Folks let’s be real. 2.29 for 40oz of goodness. No brainer. Also don’t 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 – 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 – 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 – 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.
