Pours mediam gold with a frothy nearwhite head. Aromas of wheat, corn and a slight amount of fruit. Full bodied; creamy carbonation. Flavor is pretty clean, lightly sweet, and thereís a slight touch of light stone fruit in the finish. Not much heat. Just rated Earthquake HGL, and this is even better. :)

Sometimes, when you go to the ends of the earth to pick up a new rating, you come along treasures such as this. $3.49 per 4 pack of8.5% ABV tallboys. Aroma-wise, it actually smelled slightly Belgian. Good, rampant golden bull on the can. Latin inscription behind bull, adding class to the beverage and earning the appearance a solid 2. Lord knows Iím not going to pour this into a glass for fear of etching. Metallic, fuddled tasting - not too bitter. Medium body, musty aftertaste. Stands proudly with similar malt liquor offerings. Billís Ghetto-mart, South Magnolia.

Reid (2051) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 24 Oz can..I have no idea why i bought this! Appearance just the typical yellow lager..large bubbly white head. Aroma..raw bread dough, with a small amount of nail varnish remover.. Taste..is kinda sweet, like sour apples though toned down..like an Apple Jolly Rancher. Some grainy bitterness slightly tempers the sweet/sour near the end..and hangs around unleasantly..as an alcohol like burn in the throat. Palte thin and unconvincing. hey what can i say its a Bums beer.

Clear gold, thick frothy white head. Aroma of sulfur, corn, moldy cheese. Taste is bad, weak, watery. Bad as expected.

I would concur with the VSL label, but after that this ML does not do much for me. The taste is has a hint of ífuelí in it and it goes down fairly smooth. The ABV becomes apparent rather quickly - especially if not drunk with any food. The stuff is cheap - $0.50 per 16 ozer.

Aroma is rubbing alcohol and synthetics. Flavor is not quite as bad. Mostly non-descript. Not good, but Iíve had worse.

JMerritt (1871) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Super pale gold with a medium bright white head that is quickly and mostly diminishing. Aroma of tart, hard apple cider and fusel alcohol - very strange. Mild grain alcohol and slight apple flavor. Low carbonation, smooth palate. Finish is mildly sour with wheat and hay notes. Alcohol noticeable at tail end of finish, but not overly so. A rather subdued malt liquor, surprisingly drinkable (read: not horrible).

Has a bit of a fruity scent, clean taste with a bit of an alcohol aftertaste...not bad for a malt liquor
