2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 24 oz can. Poured into a tulip glass. A finger of head with descent retention on a clear, golden colored body. Lots of bubbles visible.
The aroma has a grain smell, nothing else.
The taste is crisp, mild bitterness at first, then moves to a sweet and sweeter profile.
Crisp and clean texture with moderate carbonation and a lighter body.
Not a horrible beer, though the taste would be better if it maintained the crisp mild bitterness instead of letting the sweetness come in.

40oz of this bad boy shared. Poured into lager glass, clear golden color with a finger of white head. Aroma of sweet malt, corn, metallic and maybe the slightest fruit note (green apples seem to be common among reviewers). Taste is malt sweetness, carbonation, cardboard and some alcohol. Light body, minimal aftertaste. Well this exists, not something to seek for sure.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is grain sweetness. The flavor is grain sweetness, odd apple overtones and a hint of alcohol. It didn’t kill me, thankfully, but otherwise can’t see why I’d have it again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
355mL green barrel bottle for $1 at the grocery store. Pours clear light golden, pee color, thicker, white head erupts with surprisingly good retention. Pretty solid lacing. Am I the first person to pour this into a pint glass? Nose is "college" according to my fiance. I get baked green apples and cinnamon (??). Nothing too bad. Taste is suddy, peroxide, diet soda with a lot of sugar and green apple/acetaldehyde. Palate is actually pretty clean and lively, fluffy. Nothing bad here really. I’m impressed really. I think BlackIPA and pepsiedcan would approve of this classic.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz hand grenade into a pint glass.
Pours a clear pale straw yellow with a 1.5 finger head. Really good head retention and lacing for being a cheap adjunct lager. Some of the best I have seen in the style.
Aroma has tons of cooked vegetable and some Corn. There is caramel in there along with a faint hint of wet grassy hops. Not bad.
The flavor has a not so nice cardboard/plastic note but it fades the warmer the beer gets. Some caramel and creamed corn and cooked vegetables. Hop flavor is very faint and grassy with bitterness being light. Mouthfeel is more full than a typical AAL finishing slightly sticky and a little sweet.
Overall, not a great beer by any means but one of the best malt liquors out there. More flavor than many macros and cheap to boot. Worth picking up if you are drinking on a budget.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
A truly "fine" malt liquor (oxymoron?). It is surprisingly drinkable for a malt liquor. If you drink it I've cold it is pretty smooth but if it warms up just a little it is pretty hard to palate.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(old notes) Bar nearby has a special on these for the PBR crowd. Straw yellow with a big white head. Aroma is an unpleasant mix of sweet and musty. Taste is sweet and inoffensive enough for a malt, though heavy on the corn/grain taste. No reason to think about this again.

Bottom of the barrell even for a malt liquor. Would rather have a Schlitz. Fun for college partying though.

40oz. Poured a clear piss yellow color with a white top that vanished quickly. Taste of super corn adjunct, not grain fermented alcohol. Nice carbonation on the palate. Dirt cheap, Ewwwww.
