Pours a golden, dark straw color. I poured a pretty nice head that doesnít last long. Thereís some spotty lacing on my glass.

Smells somewhat of corn. Thereís some fruitiness in there. I also smell the water. I think I smell some sort of perfume. Itís odd. Itís light. But itís there, I think.

Taste is pretty good. Itís sweet. I can taste some grain and hops. It finishes just a tad bitter. Itís a lot bitter than I expected. Roasted malt is heavy in the flavor, but not overly strong. Hops are showing pretty heavy also, but the sweetness reduces the bItterness. No alcohol flavor that I can tell.

Mouthfeel is medium. Goes down real easy. I could easily drink several of these. Pretty dry to the finish. Just a tad bit of bitterness.

Overall, this is the first time Iíve had this. Iím impressed. Iíve been avoiding it, canít really say why. Itís certainly one I would drink again. For the price, itís hard to beat. Higher alcohol, decent flavor, and itís cheeeeaaapp!

Onslow (1246) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Pour from a 24 ounce can. Pale yellow brew with a fizzy head that settles to a frothy scum. Aroma of corn and grain. Taste is sweet corny malt with a slightly astringent bite. Overall not offensive. These malt liquors / imperial adjunct lagers used to be considered strong but most single IPAís rival the 5.9% ABV found here.Bland brew that I enjoyed still.

Pyrmir (3970) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2015
Backlog from a trip to the USA a few years ago, bottled. Aroma and taste is sticky sweet, corn, alcohol and not much else. Not as terrible as described here thou but still a bad beer

Pour one for my Homies! The best thing about this beer, is that it will get you drunk. If you like Malt Liquor, or cheap beer, then this is right up the alley. Smells skunky, looks like pee, and oh yeah...did I mention that it gets you drunk? What could be better! But all kidding aside, itís actually not THAT bad for the price, and I find it drinkable. Must be super-cold though....unless you like forced suffering and drinking semi-warm beer. Definitely need to be feeling the vibe though and/or know what you are getting into first.

Can thanks to Musso. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head. The aroma is corn malt. Similar flavor to nose, booze, metallic finish.

goozen (3293) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle 1,18ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an gentle smoothly sweet bitter taste, some fruity hints. Now an "paper bag" and hit the streets, nice U.S. Malt Liquor.

Not a bad malt liquor by any means. Reminds me of my younger summers skating the days away. Corn, sugar and rice all the way. Drink fast.

radio_nowhere (1048) - Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2015
40oz "shatter proof" plastic bomber, twist cap into pint glass. Clear golden color with bright white head. Aroma notes of sweet corn, grain and kind of a dirty sweat aroma. Taste adds some corn flakes, light grass and metallic note. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with a light almost-cardboard finish. Only positive Iím coming up with is that itís cheap ($3).

Cruzer (94) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
This just happened. Definitely better than I expected, but still a low quality beer. Aroma and taste of sweet corn and malts, nothing really else comes up. 8% ABV actually is well hidden. Felt like I had a hangover after I finished this. Probably wouldnít get again.

Only good when you are already drunk/waiting on the next paycheck. Straw wheat aroma and watery corn flavor. Readily available at your local 24hr CVS. Nostalgic, but objectively an atrocious drink in todayís standards.
