Smell is alcohol, metal, cereal and...caramel? Wow, complexity in the nose. Taste is harsh, leathery. Earth, nutty, rough and rocky like an ice brew. This is actually kinda good. much better than the Schlitz OML

24 OZ can: Clear gold with a small white head. Corn syrup scent and taste. Man....this is bad. I really hoped Id like it....due to my soft spot for Schlitz...( I just like saying " Schlitz") ...but, no...I gotta draw the line somewhere.

24 ounce can. Sour corn malt and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet corn syrup, malt and mildly bitter alcohol flavor. Positive - hides its strength well. Negative - replaces the alcohol with a vile corn syrup flavor.

Son-of-a-bitch. So here goes, the malt liquor rating courtesy of my good friend Adam. From a 24 oz. can. "Best" before November 23, 2015. Pours yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma of corn syrup, sweet caramel malt, and floral hops. Taste is sweeter than most lagers but is balanced by the floral hops. Really not as bad as I had feared but by no means a good beer.

24 oz. can poured into a snifter. Its actually very pretty in the glass. Nice clear pale gold color with a decent white head that shrinks in about 60 seconds. The aroma is rather sweet smelling with some apples and corn. Mild earthy hops in the background. The flavor is similar, but more malt based with hints of apple and high boost. Pretty dry for an 8.5% beer, but alcoholic with some very mild hints of earthy hops in the finish. Not too shabby. Id be really interested to try this next to some of the "craft" Malt Liquors, like the ones from Moonlight, Craftsman and Beachwood. Im not sure this would be much worse.

Clear light yellow small head. big can. a little lemon, melon and kiwi. rough finish, but almost flavorless. certainly lots of adjuncts and its sweet in the middle.
