Can share. Cotteridge Beano. Awful, thin, chemical, sweet, malty shite. Not the worst of the day, but not far off. RichTheVillan (7766) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015

Forced to drink from a massive bottle of this by Tubes, thanks a lot guys. Clear gold color, fluffy head with good retention. Aroma of air. Taste of water with one drop of cleaning fluid spilled into it. Definitely on of the better malt liquors I have tasted. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - MAY 23, 2014

Poured from 40 oz bottle into grenade pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a big billowy white head. The head is composed of big carbonation bubbles; the ones that are seen rising through the beer. The head fades very fast and gives way to a very light amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heavy in corn and has a slight metallic odor.
Taste – The taste is of corn and rice in nature mixed with a metallic flavor. Some astringency comes in and mixes with the other present flavors. There is a little bit of bitterness that comes in the end and leaves a sting on the tongue. It is actually sorta good as it leaves a rather nice tingle and gets rid of some of the less pleasant metallic and astringent flavors.
Mouthfeel –Rather average body with a medium level of carbonation. It helps make the brew easier to drink and is good for the style.
Overall – Not really the best malt out there. With the price of this 40 oz at only at $2.25, what should I expect though, right?

40oz (Old Notes)-Pours a medium golden with a small head. Aroma of corn, sweetness, and alcohol. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is not the best malt liquor I have had. Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2014
Can shared at the 5k/7k/11k. Rough stuff. Aroma of sawdust and stale bread. Pours like thin dirty water with champagne bubbles. Taste is corn, malt, and sawdust. Tastes like watered down corn syrup and an aftertaste of stale bread yeast. Horrible stuff. madvike (3250) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle...get this...2000 vintage. Yes, this was a 13-year-old malt likka brought to a tasting by a (former) friend. Holy balls. Pours golden with a tiny bubbly ring of off-white head. Nose is honey, white grape, and tons of high fructose corn syrup. Tastes like honey with some macro lager in the background. Thin, with light carbonation. Seriously, this didn’t taste like the mixture of diesel fuel and abortion that I thought it would, but I couldn’t take more than a couple sips. I don’t think the 13 years changed it at all, as the folks in the room that had had it before thought it tasted pretty much the same. Awesome. JStax (6357) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pale yellow pour with a white head. Splotchy lacing. I get corn, grass, greasy alcohol. Tastes weirdly greasy. It actually coats the mouth. Not quite what I remember. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
40oz, thanks to caterwaul. Shared with local raters. Totally clear golden color. Thin white head quickly fades to minimal, virtually nothing. Sort of tart, corn, wet bready aroma. Lemony acidic bite to the taste up front. Moderate tart, sweet taste. Light bite, garbage-like funkiness. Light to medium body, from what I can gather from the small sips I’m forcing myself to take. Harsh, rough, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Awful lager. Awful. Nothing about this is tasty or drinkable. Couldn’t stand more than 4 ounces of this. Light burn, even. Ugh... Totally inappropriate for 6%, just rough overall. Hurlicane, more like it
