Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2006
(Can 50 cl) Pours a rather pretty, clear amber with a creamy, white head. Odd artificial aroma. Considering its strength the body is surprisingly light. Sweetish with the dominant flavoural impression being one of brewing cereal, but everything about this brew appears strangely compressed with the alcohol being scaringly well hidden. As always with American malt liquors this really is more a study of innovation and brewing science. 230306

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Light golden bronze colour. The aroma is cidery, plasticy, and urine-like (fresh and piping hot) with hints of alcohol and roast corn. The taste is fuselly, cidery but wimpy. Can I pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today...that wimpy. This has to be the ultimate gangsta brew... pretends to be all intimidating and shit but ultimately is just sweetish and bland. Classic malt liquor poser shit.

When Blitz-Weinhard had this it was ok. So what has Miller done to a fairly decent old product? 40 oz. clear bottle. It has a clean aroma. Almost a touch of caramel with some noble hop. Gold color with a white head that hangs around. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor does seem a bit caramel, but the hop is nowhere near enough to balance. Better than most malt liquors. The alcohol shows at the finish. On a positive note: it has not sickened me immediately, and I actually managed several mouthfuls. Heck, it even laces a bit.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
A: Since it’s a clear 40, there’s really no pour required to see the appearance. A rather dark color for malt liquor, golden with a rocky white head. S: The smell is sweet and rather unoffensive. Actually some notes of bananas along with the usual tooth-rotting sweetness. Apple juice, corn syrup, corn, and even a little bit of a sweet bread aroma. T: A rather pleasant flavor, too. Sweet banana bread, apple juice, and corn syrup. A bit of a malty character to this beer which is sort of a welcome surprise. M: The body is quite full for a malt liquor. The carbonation might be lacking a little bit, unfortunately, though. D: I had my fill of this and shared it with friends (it was a buddy’s birthday and it was a "40s" party). All agreed this was a pretty damn good malt liquor.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2012
Can. Poured light clear amber color with large white frothy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Sweet grainy aroma. Light body with with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. Not something I would recommend to a freind.

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.
