Hmm. The deep, sicky yellow coloring is offputting. The taste is alcohol, corn, and sweetness, bland. The appearance is dismal, zero carbonation or head or anything appealing to the eye. All in all it only exists to get you drunk, there is no other reason to purchase it

24oz can from The Shell Station on Nash St. It cost $1.59 + tax. Can poured into my Highland pint glass. Golden hue, normal clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. No lacing. Aroma of flat corn. Corn and barley taste up front with more of a sweet malt finish. Not my favorite malt liquor but not terrible.

Pet bottle (40 oz) bought @ Cambridge Wine & Spirits and shared by Minderbinder, thanks! Hotel Room Tasting post EBF, enjoyed in a brown paper bag.

Appearance: Hard to see through the brown paper bag, but it looks clear pale golden with a small white head.

Aroma: Massive grainy and herbal presence well balanced by a not less massive metallic presence (steel?), corn starch, banana, booze and rotten fruits.

Taste: Sweet boozy corn soup with herbal features, metallic notes and rotten fruits.

Palate: Medium body. Light carbonation. Herbal and sweet finish. Warming presence is higher that you would expect from an 8.1% abv beer.

Overall: Not that bad, I would take this over most Triple IPA.

drank out of the paper bag - nah, from the PET bottle. toasted grains, light caramel, few bananas and other phenols, surprisingly lagering fruity notes, bland herbal-grassy notes. average carbonation - not too prickly; light body - oily; semi-sweet caramel grassy finish. not too bad.

From a 40, shout out to beerbros, you know who you are. Aroma of banana, booze, great metallic aroma, super fruity booze. Taste is grainy, boozy, awesome shit corn flavor. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation. Nice.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2015 Pours a clear golden with a small white head that seems to leave good lacing in the PET bottle. Nose is of cereals, pilsner malt for sure, raisin. Taste is lightly sweet and alcoholic. Not too much grape drank, just cereals. Body is medium, carbonation is medium too. Overall a cheaply made malt liquor, not something I would go back to. It was still funny to pop that bottle with people after an extreme day at Extreme Beer Fest.

Served from 22 oz can into pint glass. Appearance: pours a 1+" white head. Color is yellow-golden with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: corn husks, with toasted barley and slight citrus in the background. Mouthfeel: heavy with a mostly dry finish and warming alcohol in the throat. Flavor: bold but nicely balanced between corn sweetness, rich barley, and enough hops to keep it from being cloying. Overall: first time ever having a malt liquor, I was pleasantly surprised. Not something I would buy regularly, but nothing offensive either.

Pours nicely with a thin head that disappears quickly. It's light in color, and has no particularly strong aroma. It has a sweet, malty taste. Overall it's very drinkable and very good value for money.

Served out of a paper bag into my Duvel glass. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is cereal grains, sweetness, grass. Taste is not bad really. Cereal grain, sweet malt, smooth. Not bad for a malt liquor. OK lacing.

Can shared during the first Late Nite session of RBWG 2015. Pours totally clear gold with a bubbly white head. Nice grainy pale bread aroma. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with simple, sugary white bread, pale grains, no hops. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, more cereal grain sugars, white sugar, basic bread. Quality malt liquor. Drinks well below its weight.
