3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 710 ml. can, coded freshness on the bottom of the can, an updated logo with the new Schlitz malt liquor bull, sampled in a lager glass.
L: Clear golden yellow appearance with a surprising large white head of frothy foam, the head has a mighty firmness, not the usual whiff of a head that you see on the majority of malt liquors, there is even a splotchy curtain of lace ringing the glass, color me impressed.
S: White all-purpose flour, dry grain and a hint of cornmeal, framing the edges is wafting lemon corny alcohol, just the lightest of solvent scents . Iíll give this some deserved credit, it doesnít have that sulphuric manure smell that a lot of other malt liquors emit.
F&T: This possesses a nice soft creamy crispness, giving the body some heftiness, making this quite easy to consume. Sugary, grainy malts with a touch of dried maize, there is really nothing in the way of an offensive taste, once again, surprising for a malt liquor. This contains the mildest of alcohol bites, if it wasnít for the alcohol warmth in the back of throat, I would have never guessed itís true strength. A light macro lager lemony flavor in the middle, this finishes dry with a little generic hop spiciness coming out, the ending has a nice cleanliness to it, upping the drinkability for me personally. As it warms it does acquire some solvent/fusel alcohol harshness as all malt liquors do, needs to be consumed as cold as possible.
This is actually a fairly malt liquor. In few ways this reminds me of some of the better pale Euro Strong Lagers Iíve tried. If you only have a dollar-fifty in your pocket, you wouldnít be going wrong by picking this, youíll even get some change back, sweet.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
24 oz. can. Pours pale gold with white frothy head. Aroma is corny pale malt, mild hopcitrus. Tastes pretty horrid, primarily of corny pale malt, plus late hops and some metallic thiols which gets very sticky and offputting the more it warms. I didnít finish this one, and poured about 16 ounces down the drain.

a fairly good looking beer, very bubbly, clear yellow quickly dissipating white head. nose of grain and sweet malt. the flavor is grainy and sweet. the corn syrupy sweetnes becomes cloying in the finish. another macro clunker in a 24 oz can. even after warming, still cloyingly sweet. some kind of metallic aftertaste after a while.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 24 oz. can. Pours a golden color with almost no head. Aroma is of fruit, grain and alcohol. The taste is sort of sweet and of fruit and grain. The alcohol is barely noticeable. This beer is easily one of my favorite malt liquors. It is smooth, clean and refreshing. Plus it is dirt cheap. At about $1 a can, you canít go wrong with this. An excellent brew that tastes pretty good and is easy to get drunk on.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
One of the very worst Iíve ever tried, and Iíve tried many malt liquors. It seems to be a bad sign every time thereís a noble image of a large, angry animal emblazened on the can. Tastes like the drain from the Burger King dumpster next to the Greyhound station in downtown Macon, Georgia after a brief July rainshower. Or the tap water in San Jose, California.

Oh, God. I agree with mansquito. This is some shit! Has a thick consistancy like syrup. Smells like rotting fruit. Has a VERY quick finish. Little alcohol burn, but an aftertaste of rotting fruits and vegitebles.
I wouldnít have drank this 30 years ago in college! Really quite bad. The PRUNO of beer! Itís too gross to be an effective alcohol delivery system. I paid $1.69 for a 24 ounce can, so itís not as cheap as some others. Blech!!!!!!!

Is everyone rating this beer daft? This is perhaps the very worst malt liquor I have ever tried. It was not easy to drink and the after effects of it were catastrophic. It is because of beers like this that people should not be allowed to buy alcohol while intoxicated, because they, as I did, might think that buying this poop is a good idea. The hangover from this was worse than the one from 211.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At $1.09 for a 24 oz. can I was a little skeptical, and apprehensive, as most cheap malt liquors leave me feeling a little queasy. I was pleasantly surprised, though, with this one. There was little aroma but it poured with a dense white, creamy head. The flavor was sweetish, but not overly so, nor too bitter. The high alcohol content was not apparent on the palate. I have recently been partial to some strong lagers from eastern europe and this compares well with them. I found it to be very smooth and drinkable. If you really want to appreciate it - compare it next to a Steel Reserve.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
24oz. can from Party Time Liquor. Light golden in color upon pouring. Sweet corn aroma. Some grains. Flavor is fairly grainy with a touch of malt. Not nearly as sweet as you typical malt liquor. Some alcohol in the finish. One of the better malts around. Not too hard to drink, and itís not even ice cold.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
24oz Can: Shimmering high class gold color with a fizzy head. The nose is corny with a pungent alcohol note along with some husk and some actual maltiness. The flavor is nice and malty, some body, some hops, oh my! Whatís going on here?! Very smooth lager indeed, whereís Billy Dee when you need him?
