I honestly just wanted to catch a good buzz and go to sleep. This did the trick but aside from that its terrible and as the clerk at my local 7-11 says "it'll get ya there" and that's about it

Pours a golden color with a big tight head that fizzes out to basically nothing

The dominant aroma I can only describe as "robust corn" I think thatís one of the better corn characters a beer can display, along with that weíve got some mild skunk, and some light breakfast cereal.

The flavor is really odd, pretty boozy, there is a good deal of sweet corn here, surprisingly there is a fairly defined bitterness as well.

The finish is notably rough.

I wanted to love this, but itís just not cuttiní the mustard.

24 oz can to pint. Here goes... Looks thin and light by malt liquor standards; lots of carbonation and white head that quickly dissipates. Smells cheap and doughy. Tastes doughy and slightly sweet; better than I expected. Average on the palate. Exceeded my expectations!

Shitty malt liquor. Not the cheapest out there but pretty close. The stuff bum dreams are made of.

40 oz. bottle from Food Lion Malt Liqueur Emporium Ar: Lovely corn aroma. Ap: Lovely clear gold. T: Wickedly sweet corn flavour. Complex notes of butthole. This oneís pretty mad. How do you get an alcohol burn into a ~5% beer? Thatís impressive! P: Sticky. O: Wonderful creation.

Purchased at Sherryís Wine and Liquors in Woodley Park, Washington, DC. Poured from a stunningly horrendous black and gold sixteen ounce can into a snifter. The beer pours a clear straw gold with actually quite a vivacious little head. The nose is marked most notably with cereal grain, hay, skunky bitterness, metallic astringency, and some sickly sweet honey. The flavor brings more wretched sweetness and tinny dominance, with really no positive traits. The taste of rust lingers horribly. This beer reminds me of the sensation I imagined on my tongue when reading tales of the Guosim shrews of Redwall, most notably when the ferocious rodents were forced to portage their logboats through mire and muck due to unpassable streams. The skunky, vegetable aroma reminds me of what those poor creatures must have endured entering their nasal cavities as they trekked through those putrid, stagnant, repulsive environs, and the metallic zing reminded me of the cold steel as they drew their rapiers to inevitably overcome the onslaught of wicked swamp creatures such as lizards and dive-bombing fowl of all sort. I remember reading those chapters of Brian Jacquesís legendary series as a wee one, and I was always tense with the excitement evoked by such a negative situation. Drinking this beer strikes me as little better. LOGALOGALOGALOG!!!!!

My favorite discount liquor store always has this and Hammís at $2.99 for a six-pack of cans. Next time Iím impecunious, Iíll go for the Hammís instead. This one pours a clear golden yellow with a frothy but quickly vanishing white head. Smell and aroma werenít as offensive as I had feared: corn, hay, and chemicals. Has a slightly metallic aftertaste, Better than many of the other "gets you drunk on the cheap" beers and malt liquors Iíve tried
