From 40 f. oz clear bottle. Pours clear yellow. Good malt profile and slight bitter/citric. Flavour is plain malt and boring.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2007
40 oz clear botttle - the right packaging for a Malt Liquor. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of dust and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of honey, dusty, and malt, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
(Bottle 100 cl) Wauw, this is actually quite fascinating. Danish "Malt Liquors" are most often strongly alcoholic and unpleasant. But this beer really is a technological study in the art of suppressing strong alcohol. Golden, very white slightly creamy head. Extremely light body, no real bitterness but a rather odd chemical aftertaste. Like a "Miller Light" gone crazy? Fascinating in a perverse way. And this enormous bottle never really empties....

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2007
Bottled, 40oz, thanks SHIG. Yellow colour, not much head. Aroma is maize, malts and some hops. Flavour is sweet malts, hops and also some toffeeish notes. Very clean and quite wellbalanced thing. Way better than Finnish macro stuff.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2007
Blond color. Almost no aroma. Would better if there was also no flavor, unfortunately there is, and there is nothing good in it, with a finish that tastes like sweeteners. Very bad.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2000
UPDATED: APR 9, 2003 Light gold colour, oversized bubbles, soapy-looking head; aroma of fusels, shitty homemade scrumpy, grass, and so much DMS it's more like vomit than corn. Soft initial sweetness (malt? could it be?) give way quickly to harsh alcohol, dms, cider, and a whole host of other nasties. This beer is like a guy with 8 different diseases.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2005
(bottle) Pours a light golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, cereal, and skunky hops. Just a plain skunky tasting beer.

bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
The aroma is corny, but not so bad as many malt liquors; might actually be a bit of malt aroma. Brassy gold color with a white head that slowly diminished. Thin to medium in body. The carbonation is mild and creamy. The flavor is decent malt, and there is not really any bitter worth noticing. It seems to generate heat rather rapidly. Ok, if a malty, unbitter lager kind of thing is desired.
