40 oz. bottle: As if there was any other way. Naturally, the best way to drink this is to pour out the neck’s worth of beer, then refill it with orange juice. Screw the cap back on, shake gently to mix, & BOOM - you’re holding the world’s best poor man’s mimosa. Not Mimosa the beer, you idiot, the cocktail. By itself, it’s a metallic, grainy, dusty, & overly sweet mess... But mix it with OJ & you’ve got something special.

Tastes like contaminated water with carbonation. Other than the price for this and a brown paper bag to go with it, I can’t understand why people buy this. I’m ashamed to of even wasted $1.99 on this 40 ounces of filth.

40 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is grain, malt and some grass.

Ahhh yeah. Malt likka tick. Celebetory bcbs case purchase tick. 22oz bottle for $1.79. Clear glass bottle goes not hide the apple cider piss hue. Nose of corn, booze. Taste adds grains, cat poop, skunk, roadkill. Big full body sits like a bowling ball in my gut. Uggghh.

16 oz. can: Pours clear gold with a cottony white head. Grain malt, corn, cardboard aroma. Taste is corn....malty....sweet.... So sweet I can’t even taste all the metallic notes that I KNOW are in there. Pretty bad stuff.

Bottle. I drank a ton of this back in New Orleans. This, Colt 45, St Ides. I wasn’t quite as much of a dick about beer back then but I was still capable of understanding that this wasn’t a great beer. It’s actually hilariously poor. Gets you pished and not much else. It was always a race to the end of the bottle being as how you had 40oz to get through and the weather was so hot. Drink it fast and save yourself from having to drink the warm, pissy dregs. Clear bottle. Dont pour it. The correct glassware is the bottle it comes in. Glad to taste it again. I just need to track down a reliable Malt liquor stockist in Prague so that I can score some St Ides.
