Poured into a goblet. Appearance is gold with a lasting white head leaving splotchy lacing. Aroma is grainy and semi sweet. Tastee is grainy and a Tad yeasty. Very little aftertaste. Pretty good malt liquor, especially for less than a dollar.

16 oz can; thanks Alex!! Clear, light gold with trace tan head; light lemony corn, stale malt, some minor green apple jolly rancher; kind of light on the ABV, so very drinkable and low on the fusel alcohol flavors; kind of weak though

A 40 from the beautiful state of Louisiana. Piss yellow pour, almost nothing of fizz white head. It does have a strange sweet grape drink flavor, with bad grains, and a light touch of hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Somewhat appley nose, corny and sweet but not overpoweringly so. Stale piss gold yellow pour, no head, fizz, nothing. Grainy, corny, some green apple in the finish becomes a little tart, but not unpleasant. Clean finish all things considered, light drinkable, cool ass can with a black hawk flying over the projects. Pretty cool. Wish this had more alcohol is my only complaint.

24oz banged up can shared by riversideak. I really love malt liqour labels, I’d like to meet some of the graphic artists. Pours clear and gold with a white head that fall quick. Fruity artificial smelling with light corny adjunct and some hay. Light and kind of ’clean’ tasting as far as a malt liqour goes. Tangy apple finish and touches of corn through out.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nighthawk Malt Liquor has a thick, white, creamy head, with a very clear straw appearance. Carbonation is high. The aroma is of citrus (lime, I’d say), with a chemical back smell (think roofing tar). Taste is also very much of lime, with a flat hop bitterness, that comes across cheap. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Nighthawk finishes crisp and surprisingly refreshing. This drink is very similar to Mickey’s Fine Malt Liquor, which may be the intention. Overall, this is a very light-bodied beer, and better than I expected. I was happy that my sample (poured from a clear glass 40 oz. bottle) was not skunked.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cold tall boy can. Purchased with the intention of finding the most horrifyingly awful brew to celebrate RCL’s 1200th rating...and it was a failure. This really is not bad. Aroma of niagra grapes, citrus, and sweet corn. Flavor is sweet, with more corn and caramel. The higher level of carbonation and touch of hops cut through the sweetness, leaving my palate refreshed. A very enjoyable malt liquor, especially when one considers the $1.09 price tag.

From a tall boy can. Looks pretty good, save the dish-soap head. Aroma is surprisingly nice, a bit of fruitiness. Flavor is a tad cardboardy but not awful. I was looking for total swill for #1200 but this was one of the best malt liquors I have had.
