1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Well from the overwhelming support that this beer has gotten, I decided that I must have it!! (jk) So I poured it into a glass and........it pours an ever so slightly cloudy light golden color. Aroma is of malts, banana, candy, and wine. Flavor is very boozy and sweet. Orange peels and malt. Leaves a very sweet and bitter finish. My god, the masses were right about this one!

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Big ass 24 oz can. Pours a slightly off-putting orangish gold body with a thin very fizzy white head that vanished immediately. The nose is soggy malts, corn, and has a slight white grape juice note. A touch of alcohol as well. Yikes! Tastes like sugar water with a harsh garbage juice and cooked corn finish. Some heavy rocket fuel and nail polish like alcohol notes. Sticky, heavy, and clingy body with fizzy carbonation. Iíve had quite a few Malt Liquors, including an 18 beer blind tasting once, and this is one of the most horrible ones Iíve ever come across. No, I didnít forget to put my rating numbers in. This beer is the prototype for an 0.5 beer.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this beer. It was sampled side-by-side with a can of Earthquake in order to truly experience some great malt liquors.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat, pickles, trash and citrus. The flavor is citrus, wheat and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Better than Earthquake, but that is not saying much.

Also enjoyed in my Trappistes Rochefort glass today. Opened for a special occation. Wallowing in the defete of Team USA in the 2010 World Cup vs. the Ghana-rians today. 2-1 OT. I figured Iíll endure some more torture til the end by opening this American Malt Liquor.
24oz can. Medium gold color, thin white head. Smells like prison-made mead with rice pudding sweetness. Upon taking the first sip, gag reflex kicks in. WOW WEE, this stuff is strong. Tastes like apple juice and soggy cheerios. Ooh, thatís a brutal one. I donít know if I can finish this whole can without throwing up. Man, am I gonna be shitfaced.

From a twenty four ounce can purchased at "Kellerís IGA" - This stuff is definitely bottom rung wino beer, but it isnít terrible in short servings. Yeah, itís a clear, straw hued brew with a very sweet flavor, but it isnít terrible.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2010 Acworth, Ga - Chevron store - 24 oz, black macho-looking can. Medium golden pour, fluffy white head. Aroma actually has some stale yeasty notes similar to a cheap Belgian Ale. Flavor is very boozy and chemically with hints of stale, soggy kidís cereal. Harsh mouthfeel, burns as it goes down, .

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear bright golden with a respectable white head. Nose is bubble gum. Sugary sweetness dominates the flavor; some taste of pale malt and alcohol. No hop bitterness whatsoever. Alcohol warmth after the swallow. Not as offensive as one would expect of a high gravity budget ML, but the over the top sweetness is whatís most off putting.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours a darker yellow with a rich white head. Looks like a hearty lager. Smells pretty bad, rotting corn, fuel oil, and marshmallows. Thick, awful mouth feel. Terrible flavor, like gasoline. Higher carbonation than most malt liquors, but one could never chug this. Not for quenching thirst, thatís for sure. Offensive after taste, like really bad cough syrup. Not as sweet as many high octane brews. That makes this even harder. Quite a bit of burn going down. Iím an experienced drinker and even I got a severe headache from this shit. Blech. Paid $2.99 for four 16 ouncers in West Allis, Wisconsin.
