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. Iím 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, Iíd rather have this for efficiency than bud light.

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.

Tallboy into a pint glass. Pours hay with no real head. Corny aroma. Taste is cereal and corn. Definitely inferior to Schlitz OML. Still fairly smooth and crisp, but the booze definitely cuts through.

Can. Pours a lively yellow with a nice white head and an aroma of corn flakes and wheat bread. Tastes like watery vegetable with a slight malt finish accompanied by stale corn syrup. Watery yet buttery-slippery mouthfeel. The alcohol is well-hidden. For a cheap malt liquor, itís not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (grain, cereal, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of alcohol and metal.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Aye, ítis a simple adjuncty beer but hey, thereís hops in here, and itís not nearly as filthy as a great many in this genre. If you want to swill on something cheap just to get wrecked, this would be a reasonable option.

Going for the good stuff here - a tall boy can, called a "high gravity lager" on the label. I recall the old Schlitz, the beer that made Milwaukee famous, but that brewery is long gone. This stuff is made by Miller, who must have purchased the name. The brew looks pretty good - gold color with a decent head. Bland aroma with a hint of motor oil. Fairly sweet, cornlike flavor with a touch of herbs. The high alcohol content is masked well. It is not flavorless or burdened with a metallic taste the way some cheapo beers are. This stuff is not too bad, actually - it exceeded my low expectations.

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).

Pours golden with white head. Aroma and taste have plenty of malts with ample sweetness - corn. Overall not an awful beer, it can only get as good as the price of the can. Just nothing I would buy.

slightly apple smell....taste is also of slight apples and a little bit of sweetness...finish is a little more harsh like a malt liquor normally is...almost tastes like a light cider and malt liquor were mixed...better than straight malt liquor though!
