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!

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.

Pours a very light yellow color that is fairly clear – with a small head and some lacing and under carbonated. Smell of bitter hops. First taste is extremely light and very sweet. Almost no hop bitterness present at all. Not worth your time or money as this beer is lacking flavor….oh yeh, missing taste too!
This pussy cat needs to be euthanized.

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!

Am I the only member here that realizes that this stuff is just "Wildcat Malt Liquor" made and branded by the same company?

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.

I was just checking the list of fine products produced by City Brewery when I found once I tried a while back but never rated. It seems The Cat is just another bottle of bile, and quite similar to City’s numerous other malt liquors. Just another I sampled to add to my "been there, done that" file. Yellow piss water, a hint of hops, malty sweetness, and alcohol. You get what you pay for, in terms of quality and taste, with the bonus of a bunch o’ alcohol.
