Long time since I had a good hotel mal Liqour rake. Love des rar Indiana malt liqour whalez. Straight out of the can. Big adjuct corn nose. Taste is sweet, corn, tin, metal. More metal in the lingering finish. Pretty much as expected.

24 oz. can. Pours a clear, pale yellow-gold with a finger of white head. Notes of corn, straw, wheat, dough, sugary cereal, and candy. Light-bodied, with a dry, sweet mouthfeel and medium-plus carbonation. In line with the HG800 and Icehouse Edge. Probably the sweetest, though.

Crushed a 40 of this a while back while driving my friend to the dentist. It was pretty adjunct flavored and medium boost. Corn dominated the taste. Sweet. Fizzy. Not great.

Yeah drinking this ain't what it seems, on the boulevard of broken dreams. Glad I opened my eyes in the nick of time. 'Cause it sure felt like the end of the line. Seriously, this was bad. And thanks to the Allman Brothers Band's End of the Line for the inspirational quotes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can to snifter. A moderate apple and corn aroma. Like honey smacks cereal. Crystal clear, light yellow, no head. Taste is sweet with a hint if apple and corn. Hmmm. Not bad.

Can share thanks to Homer321. Pours a brilliantly clean straw yellow color. Very light sweet malt and corn adjunct character, very subtle. Very light malt character, semi-sweet, crisp, fairly watery overall. Smooth boost juice tho.

Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a medium golden with a small head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of corn and sweetness. This light to medium bodied brew was not bad but also not good.

"Magnum"... am I buying beer or condoms??? 24oz can from my local Kroger, shared with friends. They are very not excited. I offered them a choice between 5 malt liquors I picked up, the response was "do we have to?". Yes. For science. Best by date printed under the can reads Aug/25/14. Pours a clear golden orange color. Lots of big bubbles on the side of the glass. Bigger bubbly off-white head, that quickly fades to a thin bit, leaves a few dots of lace. Corn in the nose, and bread. Big bready yellow corn in the flavor. Just yellow corn on the cob, and bread. Light to medium body. Kind of smooth, sort of crisp light to moderate carbonation. Kind of making my teeth feel funny. Lightly dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, and kind of a significant bite to it.. When I asked Alicia what she thought of this, she said "I think it tastes like a fucking miller lite." She really has a way with words. Head soon fades to absolutely nothing. Not great, not absolutely terrible. I lost interest after 6oz.. Robby says itís surprisingly drinkable, not offensive. That sums it up a bit.

Bottle sampled strictly for a rating. Body was thin, yellow, hints of corn with a mildly sweet finish. Not much aroma or taste.

From a 40! Stamped MAY0514-CO5110027. OK! Rating this on style rather than on the merits of a craft beer - this looks exactly like it should with a pale yellow color and a humongous white fizzy head that eventually fizzles down. Unlike other malt liquors the aroma is not like antiseptic. It has a clean corn and barley malt character. The body is light, smooth, and refreshing. The taste is corny and grainy but itís not pucker up metallic like so many can be. I have to say that this is a far better beer than other raters are giving it credit for. Certainly - not a craft beer but for the style it is right on the money and is one others should strive to emulate.
