At first I was surprised when I saw this beer was something other than the straw colored crap that would be in tall boys on the shelf nearby. But in the end it just looked sort of dirty or muddy. This impression of the color may have come from the taste which is also kind of dirty and muddy. Tastes like cheap malt liquer.. well it IS cheap maly liquer. If I was going to rate it according to its category ONLY then it might get a 2. There are many worse in this realm. kurtkosher (144) - USA - MAY 21, 2008
It smells sweetish and cardboard-y, has a decent head (soap? ;) and it laces and kind of lasts. Very thin in the mouth. Gainy, metallic, alchoholish in a bad way - still sweet though. Dirty taste, Dirty finish... AVOID
this stuff is absolutely brutal. i couldnt even drink it. it smells like sweaty feet and tastes worse. terrible Popoff91 (124) - Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 24-ounce can in a glass. What to say... Its American malt liquor, high in alcohol, but overall very nasty. I couldn’t believe I found something worse than Bud Lite Platinum, but here it is. Typical drink of the homeless. StoutOrDeath (121) - USA - APR 23, 2007

Truly nasty stuff. I guess a crack smoother and therefore preferable to Steel Reserve. Only buy it if you need 8% alcohol to feel buzzed. virtuosovii (103) - California, USA - APR 2, 2010
Can’t say that there is anything appealing about it other than being a decent ABV. It’s your typical malt liquor/pale lager taste and smell. Just another nasty beer for you to get drunk on. Wolfenstein (96) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Given the name High Gravity for the speed it went down my drain. Bitter, skunked, you could smell and taste the alcohol. I couldn’t even finish two sips. Cheap drunk for the homeless. PickettsCharge (89) - USA - JUL 30, 2007
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 man’s 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.

This can comes in many drastically different designs and the alcohol % is different, but other than that it’s the same.
Bought at a convenience store, it pours an apple juice color with a beady head with some large bubbles and some lacing. Smells faintly of rotten fruit and grass and maybe a dash of corn. Taste is nothing to write home about but wasn’t unbearable. Malty, grassy with alcohol. Goes down smooth with a watery bitter finish.
Not bad, but not great. A cheap beer more than likely fortified with alcohol. Not meant to refresh, but to relax. good if you’re strapped for cash and want a good time!
