40oz bottle. Ice cold. Dark pee color. (Someone else already loaned it..) White head. Even at this cold temp, alcohol is pretty apparent. Not overly sweet. Grain, rice, corn, sugar, alcohol. Vaguely unpleasant, particularly the finish. There are other malt liquors id go to before this one. ffbot (420) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 Drank a 24 ounce can of this one recently. Smell was sort of a damp hay, bread and sweetness. Some alcohol and funk to the smell as well. Taste follows the smell: more sweetness than the smell but there’s the alcohol taste, some mild funk/and or skunk. Hay, grass, corn, bread. Smooth for the high percentage. Interesting aftertaste that goes away. Refreshing and easy to drink. I liked it. This one is a recurring purchase for me.
7/23/15: When you drink this from a 40, there is literally like no taste or smell until you’re in the swill. Then it tastes pretty bad/strong. But that was surprising. beer_rookie (587) - Arkansas, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours an apple juice color. It’s hard to describe the color. Apple juice, that’s it. It has about a one finger head, no real lacing. This is coming from a 25 oz can into a 16 oz glass. First pour was a dud. Second pour helps things out as far as aroma and taste goes. Anyhow, the head doesn’t last. It is what it is. Nothing impressive.JStax (6920) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2015
Aroma is alcohol. I smell breadinesss. There maybe some bubble gum in there.
Taste is sweet that’s the biggest thing. I certainly taste the alcohol. It’s smooth. It’s full bodied. I’m not picking up anything telling as far as unique flavor characteristics. It’s metallic, but I guess that’s from the can. Of course the high alcohol content of this thing voids anything you might pick up.
Mouthfeel is smooth. It’s very smooth. For the amount of alcohol in this thing, it’s surprisingly smooth and sweet. It’s full bodied. It’s bold. It’s strong. Its very dry.
Overall, it’s not bad, It’s hard to rate really. The alcohol is kicking in, so I’m closing now.
49 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear yellow with a white head of foam. Not a bad looking beer. The aroma is corny, sweaty, and a little greasy. The taste is not much better. Mostly weird sweetness in there. Medium carbonation and big body. Frank (4210) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2014
This would be fine to get drunk on in any situation. The sort of thing you might have at a picknick or an outdoor ball. It’s golden w/ a small head. It’s a little bit syrupy w/ some raw grain alcohol in there but nothing too bad. You also get some of that wierd grape jelly kind of character common in higher gravity malts. Mouthfeel is oddly creamy and satisfying after a fashion, making for a boozy but drinkable beer. This is a work of art compared to many spirit barrel aged beers and that is just a sad fact we will all have to get used to.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 25 oz can, inbev is giving us an extra ounce over competitors. Clear gold in color. Really a non-offensive high gravity alt liquor so credit them for that, this still sucks balls though. re-review 710ml can. This is an unoffensive HG, dry for its style too, if you wanna get fucked up and not swill your way though a 211 or colt hg this is what you grab. ordybill (1811) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Decent amount of white head that quickly reduces to a ring. A few lacings.
Bought a 25 OZ. can poured into a pint glass. Aroma is a basic grain/corn feel to it. The appearance is pretty appealing, a nice golden color. Taste, is not unpleasant, a real surprise considering its reputation and cost. Smooth but not a weak flavor. Palate, is slightly carbonated and enjoyable. A very respectable beer, a good American malt liquor.

Strong corn nose. Some light white frothy head and a clear deep golden body. Flavour is smooth, full creamed corn and slight hefe. Oddly not bad. Better than many malt liquors of this class. ClutchMasterson (64) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Poured in to lager glass just because. Pours a whiz yellow with a super head and enough carbonation for a pepsi factory. Aroma is just metal and corn and ash, UGH. Taste is cardboard with sweet cheap malt and corn. hardly any bitterness. Only for bums and broke underage kids. Diablokev (181) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Yikes. The one I’m drinking is 8.1% and nasty. The aroma is strong sweet and of alcohol. The appearance is nothing special. Taste is strong of alcohol and not good at all. Only drinking as a joke among friends to find the worst beer. Would not want to try again.
