2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a can a mid gold with large, frothy white head that provided plenty of lacing. Aroma was a slight pungent mix of grains and hops. Taste is of malt and grains (think corn) with a mild hop finish. Not the worst thing in the world. Palate is OK for what it is. Overall, a mediocre but relatively cheap malt liquor.

Can from Liquor Mart in New York September 2013. Couldn’t bring myself to walk passed the big ass can so I thought I would give it a go. Certainly not the worst beer I have ever had and there was some flavour there it was just very well hidden.

"another 40! beer #3 (and the best* in the ghetto tasting) * = worst. skunkier, generic pee beer, NO hop presence. Really really rechid instead of just rechid. I must admit, though, the tasting was fun - if a little masochistic :)"

Does not look too bad, and does not smell ALL bad. This is completely undrinkable however. Alcohol and cheap ingredients. Pour down drain.

Transfer from BA review on 4-22-13-
Poured from 40 into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours from the clear bottle into the glass as a light golden/straw color with a big billowy white head. The head fades has a fantastic level of retention, fading to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is very light overall and consists mainly of some corn and skunky smells with a little bit of a grainy aroma.
Taste – A sweet corny and malty taste greets the tongue. It is rather smooth upfront with some light graininess coming to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. A caramel flavor comes to the tongue more at this time as well keeping a rather sweet taste in the brew. Toward the end a light paper and metallic taste comes to the tongue leaving a sweet and lightly bready taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Appropriate for the style as it is both drinkable but yet still decently thick enough to allow for the sweet corny and light grainy flavors to be sensed by the tongue without being too thick and accentuating the more off flavors (paper and a little bit of metal).
Overall – It fits the malt character rather well. While not a flavor powerhouse and even with some light off flavors, it is quite cheap (paid $2.29 for a 40) and still very drinkable. Not too bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Jjust another highly carbonated, yellow, foamy American beer. It’s almost indistinguishable from all of the others. Now, it might be entirely in my mind, but I do have to say that I picked up on a little more alcohol in the aroma and in the flavor. The can says it’s 5.9% ABV, so I guess it’s a hair higher than the other convenience store beers, but not in the same league as some of the stuff they seem to be marketing to fratboys these days. There’s nothing noteworthy in the flavor, other than that hint of alcohol. There’s corn, and more corn, and that’s all. There does appear to be a slight... very slight ... bit of alcohol vapor at the end of the sip. It evaporates as quickly as the aroma and flavor, taking all of that childhood, commercial-inspired magic into the ether with it.
