rosenbergh (6818) - 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.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2009
40 oz. bottle. Maybe the worst of the worst in malt liquors. Most commonly drunk out of paper bags. This is as bad as it gets. Good luck making it to the bottom without throwing up. I didnít.

DrSilverworm (6371) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
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

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Oh goddamn this sucks. Pale gold pour. Aroma and taste of skunky corn and grass. Disgusting.

Ernest (6219) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Can. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers), hint of apple. Flavor is moderately sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Oddly, I'm going against the grain just a bit and saying this isn't too bad for this easy-to-dismiss style...yes, it's grainy, adjuncty, and sweet, but I detected no DMS, metallic, or dirty flavors in my sample. I've definitely had much worse.

Pour out 40 oz is clear golden with white head, aroma has notes of some slight corny papery slight grainy notes. Taste is sugary corn, hints of grainy biscuit and fruity notes, finishing fairly clean.

blipp (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Can. Pours yellow with a white head. Corny malt aroma with some cereal grains. The flavor isnít completely offensive. Some corny sweetness, some stange chemical notes, and maybe a hint of wet cheerios. Itíll do in a pinch.

I saw a man on the street corner in downtown Atlanta with one of these slightly hidden under a brown paper bag. Enough said.
