24 oz. can. I could smell this as I poured it. Very strong sweet aroma. Initially looked like it would have a decent head but it disappeared quickly. Color is a nice, solid gold--like honey from McDonalds. Flavor was not as bad as I expected for a beer with a 1.0 avg.--tastes a hell of a lot better than Steel Reserve. A straightforward corny sweetness thats pretty strong. The abv isnt too noticeable until youve had a couple sips--then the aftertaste is very saccharine and not at all refreshing. The palate is thin and begs to be swallowed before the taste kicks in. Not bad for a cheap malt liquor.

8/26/07 Aroma is sweet corny, bready malt with some light DMS. Appearance is a very light gold with a moderate white head. Flavor is sweet, grainy malt forward with moderate bittering to balance. Simple, but actually went down pretty easy. After it opened up, it got pretty sour, though. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carb texture. Overall, I was pretty surprised. This went down a lot easier than I thought it would. Still, that funkiness comes out as soon as it gets past 45 degrees or so.

This has a beautiful caramel color with a foamy white head. It kind of hurts to drink but if you consider the amount consumed divided by the price and time it takes to get drunk, this will score higher than just about any other beer.

Yar! Im a fan of a few macro swills, but this was waaay to sweet for me. I havent had a malt liquor in a long time, so maybe there all to sweet for my taste now. times have changed apparently. on the plus side, this stuff will get you lit for about 2 bones!

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 The taste of this beer is very much like licking a piece of copper initially, then it has a bite to it. I got these big boys 24 oz. in a case of 12....and had to pass 11 off to my poor buddy, who got slammed with this bad beer. Edit: 2 months later... these still taste like a rich mans Colt 45 mixed with urine of a Brahman bull....makes you strong....I love how A-B puts these into cans that look like energy drinks so you can take them all around, to places such as work or school or on a stroll.

bhensonb (14895) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
24 oz. can. Good old A-B sweet corn aroma. Not even grassy hop. Light brassy gold color with a decent white head. Thin to medium bodied; moderate, fizzy, carbonation. Tastes like malt liquor. A bit sicky sweet, no noticeable hop. Not so disgusting as many of this ilk. Not a great tasting finish, but it is clean.

It literally smells like deer piss, but it tastes like light beer. I pay .99 cents for a tall can of this stuff at the corner store by my house. And thats about all its worth, but it does get the job done.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2007
From a 40 oz bottle wrapped in a paper bag. No hiss when cracked. The aroma is gross corn malt and a little heat. Is a chemically dark orange color. Here goes for flavor... Just tastes spritzy sweet with a nice corny mouthfeel and a little bit of that signature AB flavor coming through. Light and watery. I guess it could be worse.

nick76 (4396) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2007
The aroma is mostly corn malt and alcohol with some metallic hints. The appearance is pale yellow gold with a large fizzy head that fades fast. The flavor is like the aroma with an acidic quality. The palate is thin. Overall its just a malt liquor dont expect much.

obguthr (6187) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Can: Gold color medium head, no lacing. Awful smell of cough medicne, Drain-o and rubbing alcohol. Noticeably high ABV and grainy taste. Cherry and vanilla finish that wasnt all that bad. Poor quality, but mildly drinkable.
