That Woodland ghetto market may have been Bob’s liquor where I got mine (about 3 blocks from my house). Ghetto’s probably on the opposite side of the ghetto market. Can’t be my neighborhood. Or possibly there is a rarified view taken by the denizens of the People’s Republic of Davis. Is this too much politics for this site? The aroma is a bit bready. Not getting any hop. The color is lightly brassy gold, and the head is vigorous but going rather fast. The body is thin to medium, and the carbonation is almost chewy. The flavor is light bread/pale caramel, and there is actually enough hop to notice, maybe even balance. Unfortunately the finish goes paperish, but it wasn’t too bad while the fluid flowed. Not a bad effort from a producer of macro c---.

Tall fucken can @ MJ’s house. Pale golden pour with a white head. Strong grainy, apple aroma. Sweet corn, some malt, and banana. Flavor is sweet sugar, apple, grain, and banana. Lots of corn and maybe a bit of grape. Some grass, a touch of water, some lemon. Kind of meh.

Tmoney99 (10405) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Can in Florida. Poured clear light amber with a small white head that diminished quickly with virtually no lacing. Light hoppy citrus grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Light bittersweet flavor with a light sweet short finish.

40 @ home. I was at the "best" beer store in Las Cruces, New Mexico and this was the most unique beer that I found. Pours a touch hazy yellow appearance with a small head. Somewhat skunky, fairly aromatic, grainy nose. Chewy lemon cake flavor. Decent carbonation. Slight stomach acid note towards the finish but overall, pretty solid for a malt liqueur in the 6% range.

Pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is sour. I wonder if mickey mouse threw up in this can? Flavor tastes like a stale corn taco shell. I wonder if mickey mouse ate tostitos before he threw up in the can?

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle... Decided to chill ’n’ swill tonight... Crystal clear, pale yellow lager with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. Aroma of butter and jalapeno pepper. Flavor is medium sweet and grainy. Medium-bodied and watery with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and a little dry.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
Pale golden with a light touch of skunkiness but still fairly clean. Thin head. Pale appearance. A touch of sweetness… it’s not really offensive at all.

24oz mega can spirit animal rating via womencantsail. Pour is sparkling golden, low foam, okay retention. Like regular Mickey ’s, this is above and beyond most macro garbage. No adjunct twang, no fusel, no brew flaws. Nose is honey malt, soft. Taste is honey bread, yellow apple. Still sweet, sugary, a tad mealy. But clearly grenades are the best malt liquors quality wise. No headache inducing chemicals. Low boost is made up for by large format.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
40 oz bottle from some purveyor of filth in downtown Lahaina, Maui, partially imbibed in our apartment in Kanapali Beach - Lord God forgive me! Light golden with a big old ’just’ off white head of small bubbles. Nose is grain, corn, light piss stains on a hot day, spicerack (mainly the smeggy bits that got stuck in the holes on top since you last used this particular dispenser - Best Before June 2005 or some shit). Taste comprises paper - not even brown, grain, light cereal, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. To the sea with you ... 38oz of you ... not a patch on King Cobra !
