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 it’s 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 it’s 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.

From the 40, gold color, aroma is lots of corn, some grass. Taste starts harsh but smooths out. Id rather have a king cobra.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 24oz can, courtesy of womencantsail, pours with a clear gold body that supports a thin cobweb like nearly bright white head. The aroma offers up apple and pear estery sweetness and sugary malts and little else. The taste at first sip is pretty offensive but my palate is somewhat adjusting. It delivers estery fruity sweetness as well as modest sugary malt sweet enhanced floral hops. Not too terrible but not at all worth trying again.

Dented 16oz can in a paper bag on my way to DLD - my first paper bag rating. Hooray! Corn. Sweet. Fuck it’s flat here. For once it’s not that flooded here in Indiana. Not that bad for 99 cents.

Clear yellow with a medium white head. This had a light, grassy taste. This wasn’t as bad as expected. I would drink this again.
