UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 24oz can, bought from a Kroger located in a more urban location. Best by September 1, 2014. Clear golden, slightly orange color. Good thin off-white head, retains well. Leaves good ropes and bits of lace. Looks pretty decent. Medium body. Kind of smooth texture, light to moderate carbonation, light bite to the texture. Lightly slick. Lightly drying finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light bite in the finish... Not as bad as expected. Pretty solid for an 8% malt liquor, really. Bready flavor, lightly peppery, not much more to the aroma beyond that. Not too much offensive about it. Just a light mustiness, light hint of metallic, but surprisingly clean overall, especially for an 8%ír. Solid stuff. One of the better malt liquors Iíve ever had, hides the alcohol well. Actually managed to kill the whole can myself without much of an issue.

Can, "shared" with Parksy and Grippitis as a punishment beer that was served up anytime one of us made a doubtful/negative/faithless/disloyal comment about the Seahawks. This is sheer aweful piss juice. But it worked-- Seahawks are on the way to the Superbowl!

A sugar coated corn chip. Is it absolute crap, no, but close. Iíd stop drinking if this is the best I could afford. Itís a gateway beer, a gateway to Natty light. Not to far to go.

40! Bottle: Drank out of the bottle, golden clear with a white head. Aroma is grassy. Taste is pure heaven in a bottle, burns a bit.

24oz lenincat mail order from Canada. Low bubble dark gold with large, rocky foam. Good retention and full lacing. Nose is sweet cinnamon apple, baked pear. Taste is super tannic, mealy, sweet, baked pear and apple. A bit too sweet and powdery. Stick with Mickey grenades.

Smells of sweet corny garbage juice but in almost the nicest way possible. Taste is metal laced corn, added sugar, but the booze doesnít show up massively. Not good.

2009 vintage can from stfun won during free beer week for eating way too much tacobell. Poured into my favorite schlafly snifter. Pours a clear, medium gold with almost 2 fingers of white frothy head. Aroma of green apples, grape skin, cotton candy and a little hay. Taste is light sweet. Cotton candy and apple with a little gasoline, metal, and sweat...hmmm. surprisingly light bodied with a creamy texture. Very soft carbonation but a long warming finish. Overall, not that good. Oddly enough though, still better that most "light" beers out there.

40. Served super cold. Aroma: Bready cereals. Slightly skunked. Metallic. Appearance: Clear light gold. Instantly disappearing head. Taste: Boozy bread. Palate: Light fizz, really watery. Overall: Man this is bad. Really, really bad.

16 oz can pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste pretty much just malts and grain. The only thing I will give iris it's price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
