2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz can from a Mom and Pop convenience store .
Had no idea what this was..seeing the word "Spirited" highlighted i thought some horror vodka beer mix..but no! So lets go!
Pours a nice enough deep golden colour with a substantial thick and creamy off white head.
Aroma like regular MHL on turbo cardboard,bread but with a better hint of caramel malts.
Taste is reasonably malty but there is still that copyright BMC chemical taste i always find off putting.
Mouth feel is actually better than most for the style..OK
Not really that bad but with a slight tweek could have been a whole lot better..i have no idea why they ( Big Beer Corp) keep doing this type of thing make something almost average when it would have been so easy to make it good!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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....

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 isnít too hateful but fits nicely into the style.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Poured a fizzy yellow-orange color with a huge foamy white head - just looks like a macro factory beer. Smells slightly astringent, perhaps a bit light corn, with some very pale malt notes. Flavor was corn. As another rater said, Iíd rather just drink MGD.

WOuldnt drink this again. Would rather have a mgd or milelr light. Never had stronger alcohol flavor in a 6.9% beer. No flavors that I really enjoy.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
What can I say, itís really just a higher octane Miller. The aroma was corn, rice and straw but still relatively faint. To be fair, I drank this out of the bottle but suspected it had the same golden pee look to it. Palate was light and fizzy. The beer was more filling that a standard lite beer. Flavor was MGD with higher alcohol and left me kind of bloated. Sweet malt hints with very little hops presence. I did feel more sophisticated though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4th of July bottle at Sarahís parents. For a malt liquor, pretty tasty. Nice darker brown pour. Good malt flavor that almost, almost overpowers the adjunct flavors. Fine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Presentation: It was poured from a big 24 oz can into a tall mug glass. The label lists the abv at 6.9%.Appearance: It has a fairly deep golden color body with very good clarity and some carbonation streaming up though it?s self. An aggressive pour makes for a big soapy head which settles out quickly leaving no lacing.Smell: The aroma is pretty much your basic cheap adjunct style beer. There is a sweet corny grain like maltiness with notes of grassy hops.Taste / Palate: It?s flavor has a firm grainy presence with notes of corn husk and cereal grain with light grassy hop backing it up. It also has a little sweet malty boozy character as well. It feels slick and full with some fizzy carbonation trying to give to some lift off the palate.
Notes: Miller Fortune is pretty much on point of its style.

Iíve certainly had worse malt liquors, though thatís admittedly not saying much. Nice amber color with a fluffy if short-lived head. Not a lot going on in the aroma and taste department, which beats something objectionable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at my Momís house. Nose is corn, caramel, fruity. Amber colored body with a big fluffy head. Flavor is mainly caramel with a bitter corn note. For the abv I got quite a decent amount of alcohol flavor.
