40 oz. Bottle Sparklingly clear light gold color; poured a fizzy quickly dissipating white colored head with virtually no lacing. Cidery, somewhat acidic aroma typical of adjunct beers though it was accompanied by a pleasant fruitiness. Flavor started sweet with a crisp acidity. Middle had a mild bitterness along with some fruitiness reminiscent of green apple and a hint of cherry. Finished off dry with a yeasty-bready character that lasted awhile in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied with a dry texture and fizzy carbonation. I actually enjoyed this brew and I found it quite refreshing. It seemed atypical for a malt liquor; it was fairly clean and it lacked the fusel-ly, solvent like character one would expect in this style. It had a nice crisp character with pleasant flavors in the middle and aftertaste, which I liked. A good "session malt liquor" if anything, one that would, in my opinion, go well with a good sausage and mushroom pizza. Thanks Kevin (slikwily)!

40 thanks to Art. Nose of apples and fruit roll up. Crystal clear and a total wild hop bomb. Tolerable at best but not offensive and no boost warming.

Bottle share thanks to Homer, through beernut. Pours a clear golden and yellow. Aroma is full of wild hops. Taste is sweet corn. Taste like lots of malt.

pepsican (1440) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Side by side with The Cat. Yellow pour with a big white head. Corny malt with a bit of hay. Some bubble gum and oddly enough, resinous hops, in this one. Good carbonation for the style.

satan165 (1019) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2009
aroma is strong effort of corn sludge, slow and seeping. strong hit of infectious funk as well. appearance is urine. flavor is more of the corn sludge but maintains a level of crispness despite numbed coating mouthfeel.

Tall Boy Can from Greene’s. Unleash the Cat. This is a straight up malt liquor. Strong hints at apples and corn are made, though it’s not sickly sweet. The alcohol is surprisingly hot, perhaps the thinner mouthfeel and underwhelming sweetness doesn’t mask it well. Uh, this is basically a cheap delivery method of alcohol to the system. It’s not as horrifying as I was "hoping". Just kind of mundane.

Tmoney99 (10455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2008
Bomber bottle from Party Town, KY. Poured clear light amber color with a medium frothy white head that diminshed slowly with minimal lacing. Light grainy hop aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a light grainy sweet finish of short duration. Cold wet alcohol with some character.

arclight (1) - USA - OCT 3, 2007 does not count
Smells slightly sweet. Light straw color with a nice medium head. Tastes remarkably like very little, but the bubbles were very light and allude to a champagne yeast being used. No alcoholic aftertaste, unlike many malt liquors. Not wonderful, but at the same time, Iíd drink this again before picking up a standard BudMillCoors flagship beer. A helluva lot cheaper, too, as my 40 oz was only $1.69.

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Although Iíve had a number of Malt Liquors and will continue to try them, Iím ecstatic to find one where I could buy a single 12-oz can. Typical look, yellow with a foamy head that quickly dwindles into a film. The aromaís corn, a sweet malt of some sort, and only the slightest trace of tin. Oily, greasy palate, yet very soft mouthfeel. Fairly light flavor for a Malt Liquor but containing the proper ingredients - corn syrup, tin, malt(?), and taces of alcohol. Iíve been able to hold it down, so itís okay.

Beer #2 in my malt liquor reinitiation, following the incredible Laser ML. And, the picture lies, as Wild Cat now comes housed in a brown bottle, from which I drank. My overall impression is that there are better uses of corn, including tortillas, tamales, on-the-cob, and even ethanol. But skunks donít get along too well with wild cats, so I didnít find any of those.
