3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep golden with 1" of dark white foamy head. Smells like sweet malt sugar and high fructose corn syrup, the stuff dreams are made of. The flavor is like sugary sweet feed and oats, and a yeasty malt with a slight doughy character. The mouthfeel maintains a refreshing carbonation and bears a sweetness to it to rival even the most steadfast fundip from the ice cream truck, or wherever you got it. The beer has has a very slight ’lowercase’ belgian yeast taste to it. Very enjoyable with no hint of the 8.5. The finish has a little fizz, and a lightly sweet malt, and a hint of the taste of the beer that made Milwaukee famous.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with a big, pillowy, cotton white head.
Smell: Sweetish, corny aroma, though mild, and with only a minor hint of the alcohol within.
Taste: Sweet corn flavor, but it’s suspiciously quite clean, leading me to surmise some rice is up in this piece. Slight hint of bitterness. Just a touch of that trademark malt liquor chemical alcohol taste. A relatively smooth finish, it lacks the usual cloying, frown-summoning end that I find with its siblings.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Altogether soft carbonation.
Drinkability: Certainly the smoothest malt liquor I’ve begrudgingly downed during my time on this planet.

24oz can. black with gold bull. Pours clear, golden, big bubbles. Thin white head. Not much corn. Flavor lacks the trademark corn, vegatable aromas and flavors. Could this be made with with rice?? Very smooth, just like the label states. Better than most Malt Liquors.

Can.. this brew poured an amberish yellow with a slightly explosove head. The aroma is huge on the corn, and chemically alcoholic. The flavor is a bit soapy, heavy on the corn/filler malts sweetness. I have had much better malt liquor.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Creamed corn left out to sour, with just a little chemical corruption. Thin and chemically in the mouth, slightly repulsing my tongue. Healthy piss yellow with a firm white head.
Taste white sugar, dried grass, alcohol, apricot.

Sometimes as they say you must grab the bull by the horns. Well it is time to take on this bull like a fearless matador. The golden bull shines off the can as if to dare me to take him on. Bring it on Mr Bull. Stick me up on a post like a scarecrow to view the fields of corn. Ah the liquid corn fills the glass. This is a harsh customer. The gas station attendent fills my mouth with diesel fuel and unleaded gasoline. You pump me and leave me when you get your fill yeah. The sour lemons mix in with this corn filled mess to wreak havoc on my taste buds. Like that awkward first date that you accidently farted on, this beer is a little embarrasing. The can is oh so inviting but once you arrive at the party the host deficates on your head and calls you a NINNY! Oh the horrors of this brew could not be described even by such masters of the genre like Stephen King or Edgar Allen Poe. I must finish this before the warmth settles in. EGADS!

24 oz. can from Party Town. Poured light yellow color with a large white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate grainy aroma. Light body with a thin texture with soft carbonation. Light sweet grainy flavor with a light sweet short finish. Another cold wet alcohol brew with no character.

From a 24 oz. can. The body is medium gold. Urinal cakes are unpleasant enough to smell in the bathroom, even more so when that smell is in your beer. Besides urine, there is also some cake donut. The taste is sweet artificial honey flavored candy with some nasty notes of cologne. A nice diesel fuel finish complements this joy.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 24 fl. oz. (US) can coded B93 8038B. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of alcohol mostly and maybe a little grass and metal. Watery. The taste is not as smooth as they advertise. I don’t notice any hops or malts...just the alcohol. Yes that’s it. It’s pungent alcohol that leaves an aftertaste. Not a very good brew but in general I am not fond of any of the high gravity lagers that are out there. However this tall boy can was only a buck at the corner convenience store.

A very smart marketing technique towards beer fans here...a tallboy 24oz can, 8.5% and "very smooth lager" right on the can. Wow! But not really! A little harsh for me, but then again it’s 8.5% and a lager. Not much flavor going on, and it became a little rough after each sip. Not very attractive; no head and overly carbonated. It should read: "N.V.S.L" for "not very smooth lager". But it is worth a try.
