Tastes like corn, corn syrup, and a mild hint of malt. Not as horrendous as some malt liquor. Bif (2709) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Pours a pale golden color with foamy head. Aroma of sweet malt, grain, and adjunct sweetness. Taste of malt sweetness bit of grain and metal. No real bitterness and fairly clean. Fairly light body, smooth with no redeeming value. Not as bad as I remember. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Wow, a blast from my teenage years in Florida. I bought this on the wrong side of the tracks at a gas station in southern Virginia. When I cracked this quart bottle the first thing I noticed was the skunky aroma. the flavor was traditional ghetto malt liquor. which I grew up on. with that said, the brew was ok, but lacked carbonation to match the flavor. not completely horrible; but you get what you expected with this beer. A cheap buzz with little complexity. ffbot (521) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 5, 2015
This used to be a staple in my malt liquor diet, and then when I went to find a bottle recently I couldn’t find it anywhere! Maybe this one is slowly dying or getting worse distribution. I hope not. Anyways, this one is a solid malt despite the low rating. I brown bagged a 40 of this one and pretty much downed it. Taste is king, this one has a not too-sweet taste that matches other 40’s pretty damn well. It’s not that overload of corn and whatever though, there is some "street" or skunk in here. It has an easy crisp finish, doesn’t linger. Appearance, the XXX on the bottle gives it an entire point higher in appearance.

Sample at RBSG. From notes. Sweet with corn, grains and skunk. Wanted this one for a while. Check - off the list.

Aroma is clean sweet malt. Appearance is crystal clear light yellow with foamy head that retains well. Taste is clean malt forward. Hardly any hop presence but enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Palate is medium and malt sweetness lingers on the tongue. Overall its not bad. Kinda a slightly under attenuated American Lager. Drinkable, clean, decent beer. CanIHave4Beers (4315) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 25, 2014
I’m not sure which generous soul to thank for this gorgeous opportunity, but I think Homer321 is involved... so yeah thanks bro.brokensail (16786) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a pale golden color with a very small but decently well retained head.
The aroma is that old lightly toasty & earthy thing while keeping it sweet and corny like a proper Malt lIkka.
The flavor is indeed corny and sweet, but it’s got a nice light herbal character to it. It’s very low on bitterness, but it’s also low on booziness. For what it is it’s pretty darned balanced.
Would pete again.
Forty Ounce Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Pale yellow pour with a short lived, soapy white head. Sweet cereal grains and corn on the nose. A bit of apple and pear juice. Maybe a bit of sulfur. Flavor has kind of a grassy and grain husk bitterness. Some mild soap and apple. Lots of corn and cereal graininess. Not as bad as I remember, actually.

Bottle during RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting at Schlafly Tap Room. Yellow with off-white head. Aromas of skunk. Tastes of skunk, wheat, corn. Light body with a dry finish. phaleslu (12103) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
40 oz. bottle shared by Frank because that’s the kind of thing Frank brings to a Grand Tasting at RBSG. This malted liquor pours a pale, clear gold with a white head. Looks like it does through the clear glass. Sweet malts, corn, sugar, and metal are the only four discernable notes for me. Then again, I lack the sophistication and taste to be allowed into any real country club. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty, metallic mouthfeel. On par for the style.
