A 24 Oz. can from local liqur store in downtown San ransisco. Long lingering light beige head. Clear yellow color. Big alcohol aroma and a small tuch of malt. The alcohole comes through in the taste with a small caramell malts. Had a hard time finnish the first glass of the can, but now itís rated and I know not to bye it again.

"sorry...not feeling ghetto here. havenít drank this swill in a long while, but i remember itís a prime example of the unsettled debate...is it better to drink a crappy watery beer, or a crappy stronger beer. no escaping the "flavor" here, and thatís not a good thing. this stuff is foul."

Transfer from BA review on 9-7-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Ė As could be seen from the clear bottle, the brew pours a medium golden color. Upon pouring there is a huge two billowy white head on the top of the brew, which fades very fast to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The aroma is quite heavy of a stale sweet corn smell mixed with a little bit of breadiness. There are some lighter notes of a musty graininess as well as some light rice smell and a bit of herb. Taste Ė The taste begins with a light, but somewhat crisp flavor of corn and a bit of a bready taste. In the beginning the taste is not nearly as sweet as the nose would have suggested. The taste does however end up gaining more sweetness as the flavor advances. A sweet corn and a little bit of caramel develop more potency as the flavor moves on. While it sweetness it also gains some more musty grain and papery tastes as the flavor advances. In the end a light lemon flavor joins the profile leaving a corny and musty flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer was thin and slightly watery with a carbonation level that was on the slightly higher side. The thin body and the higher carbonation are very nice for the style making it a quick and easy drinker. Overall Ė An alright malt, but not the best out there. It is a bit on the crisper side for a malt, so if that is what your going for then this is a decent choice.

(bottle - plastic 40 oz) Gold pour with a fizzy head. Smells like corn and cheap. Flavor is sweet corn, bad grass and not much else. Gets the job done.

Ah, the punishment continues. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a clear yellow color with a film of a bubbly head that dissipated and didnít allow any lacing anywhere. The smell was basically grainy, sweet and boozy. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Sessionable? Not really, as there was just too much boozy grainy sweet sugar in the way. Overall, another malt liquor I didnít really enjoy. Iíll keep trying this style to try to understand but donít ask when thatíll happen.

40 oz bottle shared with some family because there was no way I could drink this all by myself. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small disappearing white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy malt, corn, some weird chemical note. This was not very good.

40 oz. bottle. Clear piss yellow, no head. Aroma is rice, nothing else. Flavor is well... Nothing. Absolutely nothing. When warm it has the same rice flavor I smelled when it was cold. Yes, why anybody rates malt Liquors is hard to know. Clearly Iím doing this to bump up my numbers in the style category. Stupid
