Listed as a Vienna lager, but it really does drink like a really good high gravity malt liquor. Smooth, a bit of boozy residual sweetness comes through but doesn’t linger for long after.

Aroma smells of slightly malted water and mashed corn. Very light bodied. Pours a light golden color with a white head and good retention. Tastes highly malted with no other flavors coming through.

(bottle - 12 oz) Golden pour with a fizzy white head. Light sweet corn and hop bitter aroma. Grassy hops and some sweet malts at the start with a nice corn and bitter grass finish. Not as bad as I thought it’d be.

Corn nose. Clear amber, thin head. Some barley flavor, dishwater on the back end. Light body, fizzy. Definitely a malt liquor.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 Big ass can from Wegmans. Poured more amber than I expected with a lousy head and lots of clinging bubbles. Aroma/flavor of sweet adjunct flsvors, bad rice/corn/grain blended with sweet green grapes and cereal box cardboard. Harsh body for something that is only medium bodied, This sucks.

Light copper colored beer with a thin, white head. Aromas of skunk and sweet malts. Tastes of sweet corn mash, weak caramel notes, and funky water. Bittersweet finish. Looks and smells better than it tastes. I was expecting something worse. Not a terrible way to go when you consider all the other common macros out there.

Hmmm, an odd product from Miller courtesy of the local gas station. Pours from the can a burnt copper not-quite-gold color, some head and lacing, actually looks alright. Smell is very odd- borderline offensive- a licorice alcoholic caramel aroma, both candy-like and malty. Strange. Taste is faint at first but builds with each gulp, a sweet caramel maltiness, some alcoholic residue in the background. Not terrible (which is my default expectation of Miller products) but I would probably not drink this again. At least tastes like a real beer and not corn water like Miller lite or High Life. Reminds me of Budweiser's Black Crown amber lager, this seems to be Miller's attempt to compete with that label, while jacking up the alcohol content to malt liquor levels. While both are still similar macro amber lagers, I would recommend Black Crown over this.

Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Caramel aromas. Soft sour hot caramel and bread. Medium length sweet finish.

Sample at a liquor store. It’s not good. Macro lagers at craft prices. I don’t get it.

Bought the promotional 16oz black can for .99 at the local Stripes. Pours a descent coppery coloured hue in the glass with some head which is still there as I am typing. There is no aroma to speak of other then the typical adjuncts one tends to associate with a typical Macro beer, corn, alcohol, carbonation, tin,oh by the way, the head has dissipated. Just like had imagined, the flavour is not too bad, e.g. 211, high gravity, but more tamer a flavour with a pretty good dose of alcohol in the finish. Other then that it tastes like a Miller Light with a shot of vodka. If you want a beer that is drinkable and high in alcohol and is cheap this is prob one way to go....CHEERS....

12oz black glass bottle pours with a copper body that has gold hues and supports a weak head of small bubbles. The aroma offers up apples, pears and a dash of corn mixed with slim chemical booze and floral hops. The taste starts sweet but not slick with apple-y and pear like sweet fruity esters mainly and at times it seems the above average carbonation somehow breaks up the sugary sweetness and the fruity esters. To midway I get a slight sense of malts and faint vague hoppiness that seem to feebly bubble to the surface. This isn’t too hateful but fits nicely into the style.
