Lower boost fucken 40 @ MJ’s. Clear pale golden pour with a big white head. Corn and rice kind of aroma on this. Apple cider, grape, and sugar. Quite sweet. Not much noticeable booze, though. Flavor is sweet grape, apple cider, and plenty of corn. Grainy sweetness. Maybe even some malt. Not fucken bad.

Big fucken bottle @ MJ’s house. Thanks bro! Pours a clear yellow appearance with a fizzy white head. Lemonade, corny, vanilla, fucken smooth aroma. A bit tangy lemon, light grape drank, big apple cider, moderately sweet flavor. Smooth. Drinks good.

What up wit it. Gold with a small white head. I’ll be damned if this isn’t mildly hoppy and pleasantly dry. Crisp finish. Well done!

I got a single 16oz can of this from Woodman’s in Janesville, WI in summer 2012. Pours a cloudy amber orange color with a slight but fast diminishing head. Scent is fairly strong with sweet, cheap grains. Taste is surprisingly sweet and mellow which is a very dangerous combination at 10.5% as stated on my can of malt liquor not “malt ale.” Drinks very smooth and easy. Not much to the flavor but still rather good for a cheap malt liquor designed to get you drunk fast. If you into malt liquors, it’s worth a try for just over $1.

10.5% wide mouth 40oz sourced in green bay wisconsin. this is indeed ’high gravity malt liquor’, not the ’ale’ labeled in other states with other ABVs. aroma is interesting bouquet of alcohol/infection esters: banana is prevelant with a distinct watermelon note. appearance is crystal clear pale straw with good carb and aerated head that dissipates quickly. flavor is intense corn whose stickiness really lingers. burning sweetness and fuesels almost act as sourness and you pray for the flavor to evaporate from your palate. the only other remedy is to continue drinking, and samples from the bottle rather then a glass are far more acceptable. super HG malt liquors like this are always interesting in my estimation, the aromas alone are something to really experience. despite whatever stereotypes one feels exist with the product itself, avoidance is really skipping an important chapter in the world of beer.

Thought this was the worst beer I have ever had. Strong rubbing alcohol taste with aftertaste of metal. The only thing going for it is that it is cheap and will get you drunk.

Headbanger (3246) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2008
40 oz bottle( mine says 6% brewed by Universal Sales-Memphis, TN)-An old review I found. A typical malt liquor with nothing to write home about. Taste of alcohol and lint that comes out of your pocket.

I'm sitting in the RB malt liquor chat drinking my Moylan's White Christmas Holiday Bock, which is listed as a malt liquor... but that's kind of a cop-out, so I picked up a 40 of Side Pocket HG for $1.71 at the local store... and as much as it hurts me to say this... it's kind of tasty. I was really expecting a burning gasoline flavor, but it's got a sweet corn and hay flavor to it... not too different than many macro beers, just with an added kick from being 8.5%. I'm not even past the label and I'm buzzing really strong... so, as an avid beer geek, I must say that I understand why this stuff is consumed so much in Oklahoma. For those who just want to get drunk for as little money as possible, you can not fault them for going with Side Pocket HG.

This malt liquor rips your @ss, it tastes like a highly carbonated wine cooler with a limited aftertaste, but after a few minutes, BAM!!! It feels like you’ve just downed two forties of Budweiser!!!!!!
