Drake (9012) - 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.

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

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.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
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.

This one has some aroma, flavor, and overall qualities. Not something Iíd drink again, but a real lifesaver in my college years at Penn State.

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

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

Scopey (7455) - 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.

rosenbergh (7428) - 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.

Thanks to Blake and Jenny for the 40.. couldíve used a little help drinking it. Poured straight out of the 40 into my mouth.. apple juice yellow in the clear glass. The aroma picked up corn and sweet pale malt.. really not offensive (at least when it was cold, right out of the fridge). The flavor found similar.. sweet creamed corn, pale malts, and a little cardboard, with prickly carbonation throughout.. sweet and a little sticky on the finish. Light-bodied with lots oí carbonation throughout.. almost creamy on the middle.. OK overall feel, but the big carbo made it hard to drink fast enough.
