Probably the best malt liquor I’ve ever had, which is not saying much..............but this really was a decent beer. Aromas of corn and hay. Sweet flavors mostly consisting of corn and malt. This was basically a pretty good tasting pale lager with a high alcohol content.

Poured up on tap at the brewpub where there’s a clear gold body that supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up faint notes of fruity esters and really nothing else. The taste is too smooth and clean and not offensive enough for the style. I get some pear to sweet green apple fruity esters and sweet malts to start with. It then picks up some nice hops with floral to slightly spicy hops that have a Noble Hop slant to them. There could be some corn in here to help pull this a little closer to the intended style. Fun to try though.

On tap. Pours a gold color with a thin white head that lasts. Taste and aroma are pretty clean. Some corn comes through and is a little sweet. Pretty easy to drink and rather inoffensive for a malt liquor.

The name is scarier than the beer actually is. Basically a clean light lager. No unpleasant flavors.

Draught. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (bread, grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of DMS, apple, and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I'm not sure it's possible to make a "good" malt liquor. If it doesn't have gasoline, DMS, and/or other unattractive odors, it can't really call itself a malt liquor with a straight face, can it? This is definitely a malt liquor, warts and all. To style? Yep. Enjoyable? Nope.

Oh, god, this could set a horrible precedent, but what the hell. If macros are gonna make feckless attempts at brewing craft beer, micros might as well show the macros how to brew 40s. King can: J/K, it came out of a tap. Light golden and clear with a bleached-white head. Creamy, sweet, and kind of honey-like. Surprisingly, no DMS-ish, sweet cooked corn notes, but some popcorn-like flavors. Alcohol warmed softly. Pretty easy to drink, though not very exciting. It'll get you effed-up though!
