dekester1 (333) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle - deep, clear amber color with virtual no head or lacing. Aroma was slightly sweet and probably the highlight here. Taste was of bready malts with a slight hay and alcohol background. Hop bitterness was minimal. Palate was OK. Overall, this is not quite a malt liquor - a bit more sophisticated.

Bottle->shaker. Clear blonde with big frothy white head. A: lager grains and malt, grass, hint of peat. T: mild, with malt, spice. Not nearly as bad as I expected.

Appearance - dark? not sure , I drink it from the bottle Taste - Very Good , Very drinkable, not really filling or sickening after 2-3 Donít let the 6.9% scare you, itís a steady buzz like all beer (Should) be. If youíre an American light beer lover, itís not for you - It tastes like beer. Only 2 complaints - 1. Dark packaging color - when looking for it in a store cooler itís invisible. 2. All 3 local stores stopped selling it???

You know you may be in denial about your drinking problem when you find yourself in a Shell station around midnight and youíre grabbing a 24oz can of something you wouldnít buy unless you were desperate, and the choices were this or Corona (...and Iíd rather drink my own fucking piss than that horrible Mexican skunk shit) so thatís how we got here. Anyway, yeah so this pours an orange gold, medium whitish head, actually decent retention and some lacing. Nose is kind of caramelized corn sugar and some malt, candy like, touch metallic. Mouth is medium bodied, mildly sweet, some caramel, sponge cake, corn, and finishes a touch tart on the fadeaway. I hate to say it... because I am certainly not a Miller fan or for that matter been much of a ímalt liquorí drinker since my high school days 25+ years ago, smoking herb and hanging out in the park... but this is actually not bad. Way better than Colt 45, or OE, St. Ideís, Crazy Horse etc.

Nice amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is corn and cereal grains. Taste is a little sweet, cereal grain. little malt aftertaste.

Brandon1989 (395) - Euless, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a clear copper color with a small white head that didnít last long and left no lacing hardly on the glass. The aroma bready, grassy, some hops. The taste consists of alcohol, breadiness, and some mild hop bitterness thrown in as well. The finish is quite dry and the mouthfeel is light to medium.

HuskerTan (661) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Can. A- Corn, grains, cereal. A- Amber color, clear liquid, white head. T- Corn, cereal, metallic, watery. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- This is more of a pale lager or amber ale than malt liquor in my opinion. But my opinion is also that it sucks. Had a pretty nice head but thatís it.

luttonm (2868) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2015
24oz can in Seattle. Well, interesting. More golden, pale clean lager, soapy head. Tart-sour sweet malt, ípremiumí lager apple sweetness, but some more balanced yeast-malt as well. Smooth creamy body, heavier ípremiumí style on the typical lager base, but sweet full flavor isnít really that terrible. in a really relative, plug your nose and squint kind of way.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Tasted on 1/22/15 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at the local Kroger. Pours clear copper with an average white head that quickly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is a ton of sweet corn with an extremely light vanilla and caramel note. The flavor is a bit more vanilla up front with some sweet caramel and corn. The body is medium with lively fizzy carbonation and a medium sweet vanilla and corn finish.

12 ounce single bottle from Hickory Tavern in Charlotte, NC, but widely available everywhere. Pours a clear orange color with a small head. Aroma is malt and some grains. Medium sweet flavor with a better than expected finish. Better than what I thought it would be.

Bill Becker (463) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 6, 2014
It pours a crystal clear 24th colour with a small and quickly receding head of foam. The smell is of sweet malt ala a malt liquor with less of a grain nose than I expected. The taste is also malt liquor like but not offensively so. Maybe I would call this a malt liquor light? Sweet, more of a corn grain thing going on than in the smell. Well, this isnít half bad but I reckon that I wonít bother to revisit.
