frankenkitty (1960) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Golden and mostly flat with a small, off-white head that settles to a thin film. Aromas of sulphur, sweet, dry malt and green grape. Do I detect cheap white wine in the flavor? Yes... prickly in the mouth with a buttery, vinous sourness on top of a lightly malted background. Has potential, but I didnít like it.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 I tried this again recently and liked it a little more. Light gold body with a thin white head. The aroma had some tomatoes, apples and potatoes. Lots of vegetable character. The taste was pretty horrid with sweet turnips and some old carrots. A nasty and slightly metallic taste. This is pretty bad.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Strong upfront suggestion of hard apple cider and aluminum cans...alcohol pretty obvious. Champale type carbonation. Corn adjunct/aluminum can finish. My bottle is labeled a malt liquor...I wonít argue! Nothing says "Merry Christmas at the RAYBOY01 home" like enjoying a cheap malt beverage in front of the tree while the kids unwrap their gifts, completely oblivious to the hellacious hillbilly decadance around them.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2005
The redeeming factor of this beer is its 7% ABV... and thatís not what beer is about for me. The alcohol is a pleasant and welcome add-on, but itís about the taste, the nose, the look, the over-all experience. This golden pale lager has an aroma of corn and alcohol. Thereís a suggestion of grainy malt in the flavor, but itís mostly tinny and sweet with a metallic, corny, alcohol finish.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Pours a clear pale gold. Small quickly dissipating white head. I was put off by the slightly fecal vegetable nose. Clean crisp and drinkable, but lacking any real flavor or depth. Smeet and alcoholic, quite gross I must say. Thank you anyways, I will have to try this again next century. Im dumping it out! AWESOME!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Mine was a bit different from others here, brewed by San Miguel Thailand, all the copy on the can in Thai, but everything else seems to be the same. Crystal clear, pale yellow hgue, severely dotted and bubbly layer of foam, quickly gone, leaving trickles of lace... Little aroma. Sniff, sniff, sniff...nope, nothing to report... Thin, watery taste...hardly any flavor...gulp, gulp, swallow...nope, just moisture and the merest malt. But I hear itís incredibly hot in SE Asia, so there canít be much wrong with tossing some of these back, any old day. About on par with Corona, but beefier. Better than Bud. But, hey, itís beer...hooray, beer! (reviewed from a can)

ogivlado (6012) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 18, 2005
Bottled(500ml). -golden coloured, minimal white head, slight alcohol nose, not much of flavor, slight malty, quite vain for 7%ABV, watery and faint alcohol finish

woknblues (7) - PHILIPPINES - AUG 10, 2005 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 Maybe, the worst beer in the world? From the top, this is brewed by San Mig. In case you were wondering, donít, and save yourself the pain. Opening the bottle reveals a painful cheap sickly sweet smell like raw cane sugar. If you have had "Lao Lao" (home brewed rice whiskey in Thailand), you will recognise the "aroma". just plain bad. After one, you will be dizzy and sick. I break out in a cold sweat after a couple of these and go home ill. Unfortunately, this is one of the only available beers in the Philippines. (Outside of itís own self named beers). Do avoid this beer at all costs, as it makes Mickeys and Colt 45 sound absolutely devine. *** 3 year later update. Still just as bad. Maybe worse. I have had 2 or 3 bottles since my post and wished each time that I had not. DON’T DO IT. IF YOU ARE IN THE PHILIPPINES JUST DRINK SM PILSEN.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2005
A very loud spritzy sea foam head. Large bubbles are carried upward through the straw colored liquid. Smells more like an Indian brew, sweet, grainy and chalky. Sweet grape and mild grain flavors abound. Light and watery on the tongue. A mild burn at the back of the throat help highlight the strength in this one. Lingers of light vanilla and stale wood. World class malt liquor does seem to be a bit of an oxymoron.

JorisPPattyn (8093) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2005
Clear, slightly darker gold; thinnish yellowish head. Rotting straw, rainwater, garden herbs and watercolour paint aromas. Chalk, and again a taste as from decaying grain, adjunct-like, rice cakes - but roasted and too long in the cupboard. Some body, slick as from an adjunct, alcohol hidden. And on top of all the above, a fly to commit suicide in this muck, to add insult to injury...
