2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a transparent golden with a thin wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet pale malt and corn with some light fruity esters. Body starts slightly effervescent and adjuncty sweet before a thinner, slightly more bitter, warming finish. Not bad for a malt liquor I suppose.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This canned brew poured a large head of frothy fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained very soft carbonation, was transparent and light yellow orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of malt dough . Its mouth feel is initially tingly malty ML palate crisp with a lingering slightly tingly mellow palate and a malty aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty spicy hoppy notes and was.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Alright, make it of break it time for this one. Quite the distribution of ratings on this one, from 0.9 to 3.5. Knowing this brewery I have a tendency to believe that his will be closer to the 0.9, but I should not prejudge. Light straw color with a tallish soft peak egg white looking head that diminishes to a thin lid quite quickly. Cream corn, light corn syrup and a touch of light malt in the aromas. Perhaps a touch of floral hops. Quite dry compared to the aromas. Hints of pale malt and a chalky grain. Quite thin and somewhat fizzy in feel. Finish is dry but the linger gets somewhat sweet and sticky. I’ve had much worse ML offerings. Perhaps the fact that it is on the low end of the alcohol scale as far as malt liquors goes saves it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, golden body with a small, white head.
Smell: Floral hints mixed into some stale, low-sodium chicken broth with a dash of pool water.
Taste: Ppale malts and a bit of bored grains sweetened with light corn syrup. Not much hop character beyond some slight floral hints, no real bitterness. Thankfully, it’s not junked up with any overtly chemical flavors. Drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Far from good, but that’s never the goal with malt liquors, though I will say it’s far from terrible as well.

Can. Poured a large white head with sparse lacing, transparent, fast rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty, mild hops and sweet. Flavor was sweet, malty, smooth, watery, and thin. Mouthfeel was smooth, watery and thin. Light bodied beer. Not too bad for this style of beer IMO. There are a lot worse out there.

24oz can. Clear golden. Full bodied brew with wild hops and lots of malt?... Light bodied and watery. Aroma of clorine. Watered down flavor of sweet malt. Tastes like corn syrup. Could be better, it ain’t no Four-O!

Thanks again to Unclemattie! A pale golden color with a faint corn aroma. This one is a bit on the sweet side and rather weak for the style. But with ML you aim for less flavor. Not a bad 40 to pick up for getting krunk and not giving a shit!

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Start with Bad Malt Aroma and Taste, but Hops Come Out and Even The Cat out so Its At Least Drinkable. Very Much a Malt Liquor..But At The Very Least, a Drinkable Malt Liquor.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow (yeah, you can see that thru the clear bottle), poured with a Humongus, soapy head that took awhile to diminish; very little lacing. Sweet tasting, like sugar. As a matter of fact, the palate had an almost granular feel to it, adding to the perception of sugar. Alcohol presence is pretty low actually - not harsh, but this is only 5.9%. Note - the picture on my label is exactly the same, but it's named WildCat - Brewed by Wildlife Brewing, Pittsburgh, PA. And the quote is quite funny: "A full bodied brew with Wild Hops and Lots of Malt!" Not the worst malt liquor - probably in the middle of the pack
