"HG means "High Gravity," a brewing industry term associated with high-quality beer." No, you arenít seriously gonna try and pull that BS with me are you? Let me tell you this, if a beer is aggresively marketed as "high gravity" thatís another way of saying, "This is some cheap boozy garbage that will get you hammered if youíre low on cash but wanna get a buzz going." Period. End of story. This beer.....I mean what can I say that you probably donít already know? Horrifying? Gross? Disgusting? All appropriate terms. Total swill.

Clear 40 with a screw top. Drank some out of the 40 and poured a bit into a red solo cup for the rate. Gold colour, foamy head. Nose is sweet and corny with a whiff of rough alcohol. Taste is sweet, corny and boozy. Medium body, less carbonation than expected. Smooth for a malt liquor.

shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Can. Berry and cabbage aroma. Golden with small head. Very sweet corn malt initially which isnít too bad but is quickly followed by the evil fusels. Still better than regular Olde English.

24 oz can in paper bag ; poured a trifle out for the dead homies so I could get an accurate depiction of the appearance. Looks subpar; a transparent orange with some white head. Smells cheap, semi-sweet, and doughy. Tastes like it smells with a below-average mouthfeel. Cheap malt likka.

I picked one of these up one winter night and sat down to watch TV. I wasnt too keen on the taste and by the time I finished the 40, I had a decent buzz.

40 oz in a brown paper sack (tipped some for the fallen homies). Pours clear gold with thick, frothy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is plastic, corn, grassy hops, and rotten fruit. Flavor is bland malt without much else. Light body, low/medium carbonation, and low warmth. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta...

40-ounce bottle. Pours clear light gold with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is corn, brown paper sack, spoiled hops, and slight alcohol. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and alcohol, and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.
