Bottle. Light amber hue with a medium white head that diminished quickly. Small aroma. Light to medium body. Small flavor with sweet malt with a small alcohol bite at the finish. Below average beer and malt liquor. alabamajohn (67) - Alabama, USA - NOV 21, 2005
So I haven’t tried many malt liquors. I have had the Americans- Old Einglish, Schlitz, Colt 45, etc.. When I was 16 years old, taste did not matter in beer. The aroma brought back memories. Bad ones. I must admit it tastes alittle better than it smells. The best malt liquor I have had, and hopefully, the last. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow with a small white head and lace. The aroma is floral and perfumey, alcohol, and cereal grain. Plain flavour that is palatable and not entirely offensive. Cookiesh faint malts. 505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Was debating today, new beer or Stone RIS, new beer, or Stone RIS . . . went with the new beer, bad choice. Aroma is nasty with hints of sweetness and yeast. Pours clear and pale, little head. Flavor is dominated by a sweet fruitiness and an alcoholic finish. I mean, it has some aroma and flavor to it, it is just nasty. Ugh, gonna be tough to finish.

Dark yellow. Slightly over carbonated. Aroma of corn. Taste is slightly sweet with a sharp finish.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 Odd. The description at the store sounded good, but I apparently had no idea what I was getting when I bought this. It was ok and had some pleasant elements but it neither smelled nor tasted remotely like beer. Pouring a deep golden yellow with bubbles that soon stilled, it had a white head that dissipated quickly but left a thin, sticky, persistent white head that stayed to the end. Its aroma was pungent and distinct, but smelled just sweet, with a faint, vague musky fruitiness like old, sweet grapes and alcohol. The taste was largely the same, tasting primarily just thickly sweet and alcoholic, with the same vague fruitiness & perfuminess of thick, sweet cheap white wine. It left a faint metallic finish. After I ate some chips, it tasted downright nasty - rough, harsh, alcohol and vague perfume. The whole is a rough, thickly sweet, alcoholic taste with a thick, sticky palate. The full palate and taste have some good points, it certainly doesn’t lack flavour, and I will drink this if not eating food with it, but it doesn’t really taste like beer at all. zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle. This is one of those beers that I drink at Gooski’s in Polish Hill, Pittsburgh. Why? Because it’s cheap and will get you nicely buzzed. Somehow in the darkness of that dive bar, 9 just seems to make sense.
The beer tastes malty and the alcohol is not well blended. I wouldn’t drink this beer outside of Gooski’s.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a white head. Light sweet malt aroma, some trace hops. Medium body. Lightly sweet flavor, not much else. Not that good. jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Wow. This is really bad. Think malt liquor bad. Sweet, medium carbonation in the body. Has this pukey taste to it. Yuk. nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2009
500 mL bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal’s in Nashville. Poured a hazy gold color with a thin off white head. The aroma was alcohol. The flavor was very sweet malt and a slight bitter, grassy finish.
