Wow after one sip of this all I tasted was hangover. This is brewed for one purpose to get you drunk as cheap and fast as possible. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAY 5, 2007
From a 24 oz. can with "born on date" on bottom of can, 09/MAR/07, sampled ice cold in a pint glass. Split this with my friend, "Lurker" Jon.
Poured a clear slightly tarnished golden with large frothy white head, decent retention, settled into a thin sudsy lacing, I’m surprised at the small amount of laced sticking.
Not the strong alcohol nose I was expecting, pretty clean overall, sweet corn and cereal grains, a light lemony, whiffs of clear neutral alcohol.
The good, fizzy carbonation that all budget priced A-B products have, and a softly crisp, alcohol dry, thin and watery medium bodied mouthfeel, the body lacks any refreshing crispness, making this hard to drink.
The alcohol comes out in the taste and makes for a stale sour musty aftertaste, cooked corn, not sweet corn, but corn with a pinch of sugar, whatever lemon flavor was in the aroma is completely lost here, replaced by musty old hay, the hops are mild at best, don’t make much of a presence, the alcohol has the taste and feel of a $6 cheap, 1.75 lt. plastic bottle of Vodka, the cheapest Vodka you can find, that cheap Vodka sting on the tongue, please don’t ask how I know this, and a dry corn malty finish with the stale, musty Vodka aftertaste ruining everything.
Had a promising start, but a disappointing finish, thanks to Jon for sharing this with me, but instead of lurking, why don’t you start reviewing my friend, it is not that hard.

doesnt even deserve a .5 . it is the most nasty, vile gut-rot i have EVER drank. smells like nail polish and makes my stomach grumble and toss and feels like im dying from gut-rot minutes then hours after drinking it. it is just foul, filthy vileness at its worst.
i CANNOT stress just how vulgar and vomit-inducing this rat-swill trash garbage is StoutOrDeath (121) - USA - APR 23, 2007
I bought htis on a whim after work. I gave 5 of the 6 away. It’s just that bad. JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 6, 2007
Really not that bad for a super cheap malt liquor. Sweet and grainy with a corn finish. Not much alcohol taste at all.

not bad for a malt liquor, very light, dosent taste like it is full of crap like most malt liquor User42649 (209) - - FEB 28, 2007
Not totally disgusting, but not enjoyable, either. OK lawnmower beer when just about anything will do. Nothing worth noting. SudznBudz (1) - Biddeford, Maine, USA - FEB 26, 2007 does not count
If you’re low on cash, and want to tie one on, HHG is ideal. A 24oz can costs less than a 20oz Pepsi, and the ABV percentage will definately have you inebriated by the fourth one. The downside is that compared to Sam Adams, Gritty McDuff, and other high-end brews out there, you’re sacrificing flavor, drinkability, enjoyment, and possibly your dignity by getiing drunk on it. Slightly better than Steel Reserve, My recommendation is: Drink this only if the beer budget is tight, otherwise have one or two for a primer, then move on to a more palatable brew (and after HHG, most beers will taste much better by comparison) Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2007
Pretty bad, but I’ve had worse, lots of corn, dark gold color, little head. Alcohol bite isn’t as bad as expected, but that’s not saying much, not enjoyable. TRA (2) - Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2007 does not count
Proof that Hell is real...and that I can clean engines with beer.
The lowest of the low...ideal for homeless shitheads.
