2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked up a 24-oz silo tall boy from Discount Liquors in Waukesha, WI. Pours a clear light copper amber colored brew with a slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel, sweet creamed corn, dark pitted fruits and a touch of lager yeast. Taste is medium bodied, sweet corn/caramel malts, some floral hops and a touch of melon. Finish is semi-sweet, minimal floral hop with a lingering cream ale and caramel aftertaste. Kind of like a malt liquor/vienna lager hybrid.

Letís face it, malt liquors come with a stigma. An unfair stigma. The difference vs regular beer? Double the mslt, double the hops. I stopped drinking regular beer because it nothing but water. I like beer, but I like it with a twist. Malt liquor has become an inside joke amongst us white people. To us itís a "ghetto" beer. I found out something. The Quality IN Malt Liquor IS SUPERIOR To The Weak Beers That are out here. I like beer and like to get buzzed as well ,very quickly.
Simple math. 1 malt liquor = about 5 regular beers. So in closing, donít be a bigot and try it and save money. Try 211 steel reserve as well.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a straw copper with little head/carbonation. Consistency is syrupy. Itís honestly difficult to detect a nose on this beer, slight sweet smell. Taste is mute followed by a slight bitter linger. This stuff honestly isnít that bad.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Drank straight from the bottle, courtesy the in-laws. Aroma is grainy, biscuits and weird paint. Flavor is like play doh, strange grains and metal. Now I understand why I hear so many people complain about their in-laws.

For 6.9% abv and being from Miller, I think this is a good beer out of the mass-produced ones. Itís a light/medium body, hides the alcohol fairly well and there is no unpleasant tastes.

Bottle from Rothís. Medium copper in color. Nose is pretty grainy with a little bit of maltiness. Flavor is grainy with a little malt and a touch of fusel alcohol. Pretty good for a malt liquor.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Been sitting in the back of the fridge for a while after it was on a
99 cent rack at Antioch - looking for the tick by style. Very clear
yellowish orange pour. Off white head with some streaky lace. 4 Corn
and earth in the nose. Strong basement smells. Taste is bland;
earth, corn, some light fruit. Yeast is a bit tangy. Medium bodied
with some alcohol presence. Finishes short and rough. Shrug? Glad
not reliant on malt liquor in my life. 9.5

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
OK, so itís a macro, but give it a fair shake. Pours clear, pale amber with a thick but effervescent eggshell head - not impressive, but not off-putting. Aroma is on the weak side, malty and a little fruity. Flavor is passable, malty, fruity, a bit sweet. Smooth texture has average body and just a little fizz. Well, had to try it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a real malty smell, OK smelling not great.
Appearance- A dark amber color with a small white head.
Taste- A corn and malt flavor that was pretty good.
Palate- A medium bodied, highly carbonated beer with a creamy texture
Overall- Not a world class brew, then again it wasnít brewed to be, it is an inexpensive session beer that has a high ABV. You get what you pay for and this is great for tailgating.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful almost amber color. Pretty thick poofy off white head, quite a shocker. It looks inviting.
Aroma is a little metallic, a little hoppy. A little floral, also a little alcohol.
Taste is a little stout. I can certainly taste the alcohol in it. I can also taste some apple. Just took a sip, I think I could taste some grape. Interesting taste.
Mouthfeel is light. Taste doesnít linger, goes down easy. Perhaps too easy. Maybe slightly filmy aftertaste, also metallic.
Overall, itís pretty good. Not something I would grab again. Perhaps a little too much alcohol for my liking. I keep adjusting my ratings, because I really donít know how I feel about it. Itís worth a try.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a wonderful golden color with a soapy head that if you blink youíll miss with how fast it disappears. No lacing on the glass at all. Smell is nothing special, some sweetness, some skunkiness. Tasting follows the smell, no alcohol taste, some sweetness there. I had it not as cold as usual so I may be tasting more of the beer than they "intended". No lingering taste or after taste makes it easy to drink. Itís nothing to celebrate, but I might get it again if it was cheap.
