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.

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 (7333) - 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 itís flat here. For once itís 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 wasnít as bad as expected. I would drink this again.

40oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a pale, clear gold with no head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, meh. Kinda weak.

Bottle.
Pours a piss-yellow and smells like failure. The kind of failure that comes from when you realize the most awesome thing you own is that pair of retro-Jordans. And you work at McDonaldís. And those tats? Well, you may need another arm if you keep having more babies. The taste is like that point in every binge-drinking extravaganza in college where you hover between sobriety and puking your guts out onto the sidewalk on the way to your car. Apples and corn. Like a good soup for bums. I think I may be going blind drinking this.

ファイナルフ&# Malt liquor ticks. You know, this one is a bit too harsh to be honest. Itís super fresh though, that might be why. Maybe I like aged malt liquors. Not exactly smooth or refreshing, but I do notice some beer taste. The photo they use for this one is pretty out of focus, someone must have gotten buzzed quick. On the upside, I just clocked out from a 13 hour shift and get a day off in 13 days. Tomorrow is pay day but Iím going to put all of that towards the new car anyways, so itís not nearly as fun as when you are sixteen and living with your mom and thinking the world is tough. Blow your small check on malt liquor and video games, get buzzed quick late at night. Now you just drink this swill and post about it on a beer website as if anyone really cared. Itís quite possible that you even ramble on about it for awhile and not even describe the beer itself. It happens. Does anyone remember that commercial where the dude makes $129.95 and quits because he can afford a Nintendo 64? I did that shit but with a PSone. Pretty sure I had enough money left over to buy resident evil. Final Fantasy VIII was a good game, fuck the haters.

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.
