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.

2.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This canned brew poured a small head of finely sized white colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was a transparent softly carbonated weak yellow orange color. The aroma is a mild malty ML type one and the mouth feel is tingly with a very tingly finish that soon dies out. The flavor contains notes of malt and some acidness. Overall, it is one of the better ML’s I have had and is at least palatable.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Straw color with a fizzy vanishing white head. Actually looks quite lifeless and has gone from a 2 to a 1 prior to being sniffed. Very chemical smelling. THe scents in a large chemical warehouse come to mind. No real aromas, just a mix of chemicals, esters, alcohol, acetaldeyde, solvents all strike the nose. A friend and I used to joke about the beers made by MBC and at the time Heilman’s(This brewery’s former name) made the American way - with chemicals. They seem to have perfected the aroma. Light corn syrup start, with some white grape and raisins in the middle. Sweet potatoes and corn in the finish. Linger is somewhat sweet/sour with a bitterness that kicks in late. It states "Rule The Night" on the 40 oz bottle. I don’t think anything either should or could be ruled by this except the drain of gutter. Looks like well over 25 ounces will be flushing my drain tonight.

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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is the new can style. I have previously only been able to find the Ice version in my town. Pleasant surprise to get a new rating. Poured it into an Arrogant Bastard glass. Almost no head with a dark gold colored body. The aroma is corn and goose berries. There is also a hint of lemon pepper. The taste is sweet corn and mashed carrots. There is also honey and a little bit of Parmesan cheese.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is one of the better malt liquors. A citrusy taste and aroma with some alcohol notes. No horrible fuselage flavor which is always a plus in the style. Good session 40. Thanks Heemer.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
First taste - Jellybeans! - yes, sugary fruity cavity inducing jellybeans. This odd flavor was followed by tin, dirt (is that hop juice?), alcohol, and more sugar. Palate is grainy - like there’s un-disolved sugar in this. My tongue is left numb. I found this 24oz can at a Marathon gas station in Twinsburg - they advertise "The Coldest Beer in Town" - this cost me 99 cents plus tax.
