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 PapsÝís place thanks to Renť. A good reminder of the past. Not a good flavour.

Can @ the First Annual Rocky Mountain Malt Liquor Tasting. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Grainy, corn, not overly offensive aroma like his HG brother. Nasty, yet somewhat drinkable, corny, grainy, grassy, a bit boozy bullshit. Bad but thereís a lot worse like Skawork Orange.

I canít imagine drinking 40oz of this regularly. Unfortunately I didnít have any fallen homies to tip it for, so this was shared between 4 people (I know, we are SO ghetto). I wonder if the Belgian Monks tip a Westy when they lose one of theirs? Iíd still take this over an A/B product any day.

This is one of the worst malt liquors, meaning that it really, really sucks. Corny rubbing alcohol.

Can from gas station. Clear gold, enormous white head. Sugary, mild pineapple nose. Tastes sweet and sugary with moderate paper.

Scopey (9382) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 24oz can as part of the Thunderbird malt liquor tasting. It pours a seductable golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose is white musk, spice, rotten apple and hooker perfume. The taste is sweetcorn, corn syrup, garbage, sugar and rotten fruit with a nasty compost finish. Light body, maximum damage. Lives up to the hype.

Sickly sweet flavor is all I can remember about this. Please accept this rating as I can bear the thought of drinking this again.

Pale yellow pour. The nose is lightly sweet with a touch of corn. It seems surprisingly clean actually. Light sweetness and a lingering corn flavour. Itís sticky but Iíve certainly had worse.

From the 40oz bottle, shared by Jay. Clear golden color, Decent thin white head around the edge, with some dots of lace. Not horrible corn nose, having a hard time finding the fruit here. Skunky gummy finish, makes me want to reach for a glass of water. Poured my self a half a snifter for the first taste, and Iím struggling to finish that. Why bother when I have a Torpedo IPA within arms reach? ... For science, thatís why (the IPA will serve as my chaser). Kind of a chemically taste. Milk? Some sweet, light bitter, moderate sour taste. Smooth, lighter carbonation, but a really weird bite. Some cardboard. Ok, Iím done. The amount of people that have given this 5ís is hilarious. A lot of people seem to love it because Eazy E drank it. He probably got free cases of it sent to him on the regular

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
24 oz can. From a Shell gas station in Lexington, KY.
Clear pale golden colour with a small to average sized white head. Mild bitterness, malt and almond in a bad aroma. Quite tasteless which is probably a good thing. Very bad.
