Skyview (5282) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2014
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.

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 (386) - 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 (616) - 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 (2774) - 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.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Moí, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2015
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 (449) - 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.

I really like Fortune. I am just starting to learn about beers and discovered that I like a medium body beer. I tried Fortune about 2 months after it was released after seeing the adverts on youtube about 2000 times. I got a 6 pack for a friend and I to split and I really enjoyed it. My friend didnít enjoy it as much as I did but he likes a lighter beer than this. But, he did say he likes the sweet flavors that this beer can give off. The beer has a nice orange-ish tint after you get it out of that fantastic looking bottle. The Aromas are not that of a rose batch, but you wonít be afraid to drink it. The taste, like Iíve said are quite pleasing to me. The beer gives of a nice sweet, but not over power flavor as well as some fruit and floral hints. About the only thing I donít like about the beer is that it donít have a twist off lid, it is a pop off.

Pours clear orange with a short head. Minimal retention and lace. Nose of corn malt and some heat. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation and a malty mid-sweet blah finish.
