Medium bodied, fine carbonation with a smooth satisfying feel, light booze essence at the curtain call.

From 40oz. Bottle in a paper bag on a Wednesday afternoon. Nice and cold. Corn syrup, old grain and water. Mild beer-like taste even. Sweet. Drinks well enough for the price. Drinks really well for the alcohol content. Get buzzin quick on the cheap. Who needs a job??

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
