Fatehunter (2061) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Poured into a lager glass. Pretty clear pour, light straw color in the glass. Three and half fingers of head. Despite tall head, it dissipated rapidly. It smells day-long wet grains. Not horrible. Watery taste at first, quickly moved towards sweet... and just stayed there. Not a malty sweet, just a pure sugar sweetness that lingers uncomfortably long. Smooth and light body. Moderate carbonation. Sticky texture. I did not like that. It is what it is. Thankfully it is cheap. Iíve had way worse cost to satisfaction ratios with other beers. Still, itís doubtful Iíll be physically able to finish the 24 oz can.

Clear 22oz bottle shared at Cotteridge II as Olde English 800. Many thanks to MacBoost and the West Mild-lands crew for this one. Clear yellow, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is corn, rug, malt sugars. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Taste is cardboard, corn, pale biscuit. Pretty insipid. Yep, not great. (1.8)

Bottle split at CCii, thanks to Bootsy, Sraky and RTV in some form of triste, 05/03/16. Pale golden blonde with a moderate off white covering. Nose is straw, grain, paper, cereals. Taste comprises light caramel wafer, grain, straw, pale malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so affair ... wat is the point of a Malt Licker without the boost?

40ís and blunts, kid! College made us do strange things... like drink this. Oddly enough, I could probably down one just for nostalgia. No longer the go-to!

Originally rated on 5/29/08. Ah 8-ball, those were the days.. Havent had this one in several years, anyway a stickey sweet aroma and taste of malts pretty much sums it up, one of the better malt liqors. It is what it is- a cheap quick buzz, although i always prefered st. ides to o.e

wxman (1704) - OíFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Pours a clear pale golden with a fairly robust white head. Aroma is boiled cereal and a bit of hops. Taste is sweet pale malt, corn and just a tad of hops. Not the best, but not the worst.

McWorta (1294) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 21, 2015
Deep golden, with a smooth fine poring head. Aromas of sweet bread, malt, barnyard-dust develop. Soft carbonation, slick with a light-medium body. Mainly sweet with a touch of bitterness on the roof of the palate. Sweet medium finish. Not much to it, really.
