1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma: Nutty malts act as a base, plus a light citrusy aroma. It’s also somewhat vinous, in a way.
Appearance: Golden yellow, apple juice-colored body, white, soapy head with surprisingly good retention. Really not bad-looking, has more of a presence than I’d expect.
Flavor: Bready, yeasty, oddly doughy. Taste of rice, cornmeal, and canned peas, especially present in the unusually dry-yet-white-grape-ish finish. Kind of funky and too sweet, but not particularly offensive. Bland indeed, but for $1.50 you could go a lot blander.
Palate: Meh. Not much going on here. Very light but not especially refreshing.
Overall: I certainly don’t regret buying 24 ounces of this stuff (it was a buck-fifty, after all), but that should be just about enough for me.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Jaune pâle avec très peu de mousse. L’arôme est comme un lager avec les céréales mais rein d’autre. Le goût est des céréales léger et très peu de sucre. Quand il se réchauffe même un peu elle devienne dégueux. Du malt acerbe et papier du carton.

This pours a clear, yellow color with a slight foamy head. The aroma is mild with cheap grains and yeast. The taste is smooth, flat and surprisingly flavorful for a cheap malt liquor. There’s weak grains throughout and finishes fairly crisp and clean. After a while the aftertaste takes on a bit of an awkward finish but overall fairly decent for its style.

Cardboard, pale malts, booziness, adjuncts like rice and cereal grains. It’s not totally bad but I wouldn’t buy this again.

22 FL OZ ($2.25) not the worst of the malt liquors but still far from a good beer. a beer that’s popular at punk shows and can often bee seen thrown from upper balconies at shows.

Actually one of the better malt liquors in my opinion. Aromas of apples and grape skins. Taste is sweet and easy to drink. Carb is kinda high so it makes it harder to throw back quickly.

Transfer from BA review on 4-4-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a big billowy head. The head fades fast to give a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell is semi sweet with a mix of corn and some other malt aromas. It smells very much like a sugary breakfast cereal. Its sorta nice, but I wouldn’t really say appropriate.
Taste – The taste is of corn, but its less sweet then the nose would let on. There is a little biscuit flavor that becomes more prevalent toward the middle of the taste. The taste toward the end becomes even less sweet and actually a little bit of bitternes comes into play.
Mouthfeel – The body is rather thin with a medium level of carbonation. Average and fitting.
Overall – This is a rather middle ground malt. It doesn’t have the bad aftertaste that many malts have, but it is also lacking in some of the warming and more heavy malt liquor corn and boozy tastes that you would expect with a malt. When I am looking for a malt, I likely would not take this one, but it may be for some.
