1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very faint aroma of corn. Has the same golden color typical of mass American lagers. Pours a thick white head that sticks around a while. Sweet and dry with a surprisingly absent alcohol tinge. Slick but not bad on the palate. Finishes sweet, crisp, and bitter. At first I thought it was awful. By the end of the can I thought it was pretty tolerable. I suppose that’s a testament to the 8.5% abv. Nothing special here, folks. Just another cheap drunk.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can: Clear golden pour with a strong well retained white film of head. Corn syrup and fusels dominate the nose. Sweet dextrose and honey- very sweet. The body has creamy carbonation- actually a fairly rounded palate, but with a sweet flavor. Lots of corn syrup, fusels, some dough notes. It’s actually quite clean, but with nearly no bitterness to balance the maltose. It’s drinkable when ice cold, but other than that it’s just another fusel-ridden and overly sweet malt liquor.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from the mini mart. Nose out of my 24 oz can is sweet and corny with notes of apple juice and alcohol. The artwork on the can is bad ass, this bull with the vintage coin in the background is rather cool. I’m sure the beer is some shade of yellow or gold, but the artwork takes it to the next level. Tastes like chlorine and apple juice. Drinks well for a malt but it tastes sweet and artificial. Well, I’d rather have this for efficiency than bud light.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear pale straw pour with ample white fading head. Grassy clean corn aroma was neither appealing nor appalling. Flavor was similar, but very sweet, like a euro strong lager, but with a fair amount of alcohol burn. Ultra sweet aftertaste. Not the worst ML, but not that great.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear golden orange color with no head. Very fizzy. Aroma has some corn and alcohol. Flavor has a lot of alcohol and corn and grain. Not great. I would prefer the barrel aged version.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not too bad. High alcohol taste. Serve very cold. Malty primarily, with a touch of yeast. Smooth, but very unbalanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I enjoyed my one sample of this malt liquor (16 oz. can), which I found in Tallahassee, Florida (never seen it in Louisiana). It had a nice aroma, poured well and looked good. For those fond of this genre, it has a very fine taste and smooth mouth feel. It has a strong bite, and is soothing to sip. My overall impression was very favorable. I’d certainly buy it again, if I ever saw it again.

High ABV is the only reason, and a poor one, to drink this beer(?) 24 oz. can ensures a buzz for the down trodden!

After a real bad day, finding that I am reduced to scraping change out my car door, I bought one. Not a lager, but it made the rest of my day go better. If short on funds I would do it again.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Awfully skunky tasting. Strong alcohol and corn aroma. Just a bad recipe really. Not as good as Colt, or as smooth as it claims to be. Body is malted grains and corn. Not overly offensive but leaves a skunk-like aftertaste. Paid 1.37 for a 24 oz. can. Drank it for the buzz, even though beer like this gives beer a bad name!
