bhensonb (12460) - 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.

(bottle) Pours a light golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, cereal, and skunky hops. Just a plain skunky tasting beer.

Bottle 40 oz. Light clear amber color with large white frothy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Sour grainy aroma. Light body with flat carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a small bitter finish of short duration. Not something I would recommend to a freind.

Drake (10518) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Poured from a 40. Pours a sickly pale yellow color that threw up some sizeable head. Aroma of corn and grain. Slight skunk, but less than expected. Taste is very similar to the aroma. Body is... inconsistent. Actually somewhat better than I expected.

Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 7, 2005
clear golden colour, fine white head; a touch of hoppiness and some notes of alcohol and paperboard in the nose; sweet and medium-bodied at best; the finish is quite flat - inoffensive but I prefer this to a traditional aggressive malt liquor I was expected this to be

Like any malt liquor it is only meant for getting drunk, wasted, totalled... night night, tootles. Been through this one quite a few times during my stays in the US. Always in a big bottle. Cheap sweet malty flavour. I sure have a better taste for beer now but it was good to taste it again at Papsř’s place thanks to René. A good reminder of the past. Not a good flavour.
