24 ounce can opened with drsilverworm. Pours a clear copper with a small head of foam. The aroma is grape soda, grain, and corn. The taste is overly sweet. Fake and sugary. Medium carbonation. Big body. Ended up dumping the majority of this.

24oz can I bought from a ghetto kroger a little while ago. It’s been sitting in my fridge because everyone I know always resents me when I bring malt liquors to share. But here I am with jstax, we just picked up some wendy’s for the end of the night, and I tell him to pick a beer out of my fridge to pair with our meal... And this is what he picks. Well, shit... No time like the present to rate this thing. Best by on the can is 9/22/14. Paired with a Wendy’s Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger. Totally clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head, with pretty decent retention. Jstax gave me a pretty foamy pour, but I have to say the lace left behind looks pretty nice. In the nose... Just corn, funk, skunk, and cheap malt liquor grossness. Some malt liquors are surprisingly clean and tasty... This is not one of those. Significantly better in between bites of wendy’s, but still bad. Taste is moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter, bigger bite, light acidic tartness even. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Kind of smooth, kind of crisp light to moderate strength carbonation. Not a great malt liquor. I’d say below average. But not out rightly offensive. Still, though, I dumped 85% of my portion. Not worth it. Even a Wendy’s Bacon Pretzel bun burger couldn’t carry this beer.

Bottle via trade. A light peppery and spicy flavor. Kinda hot with some boost. Ok but not good.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Very clear pale orange color. Malty, papery, sweet, rice. Sweet, malty, very corny, flavor.

You got my number Pabst: the fast paced, edgy, urban malt liquor drinker of today. Very sugary malt smell, appealingly skunky somehow. Looks like any lager around, so no points lost there. Taste is over the top alcohol sweetness, makes Steel Reserve seem like Icehouse. Okay, that’s hyperbole but all these apples fell from the same tree anyhow. Feels rough at first, but as you die a little inside it becomes very smooth, especially the finish. A world class bad beer.

22oz bottle from Krampus via BoostIPA, get you girl sick quicker with St. Ides malt liquor, pours a clear golden/orange with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grain, with a sturdy malt presence. Slight corn and malt sweetness falling off into a bitter card board nothingness. Not bad really, I used to drink 40’s of this here and there when I was in school.

40oz bottle from 101 bottles of beer in Kent, OH. Can’t find this in VA anymore. One of the better HG malt liquors. Wife didn’t mind it.
