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 nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2013
40oz shared by DrSilverworm. Filtered yellow tan body. Fading, but at first a respectable head. Buttery factory aroma..not too harsh in the grand scheme of beer hell. Buttery, popcorn touches. Somehow smooth and easy, and says " Why don’t you just pound me and get it over with?". Too sugary, approaching Eastern Block grossness. Undesirable. b3shine (9072) - Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2013
40 oz bottle to taster (generously shared by DrSilverworm). Looks subpar; a completely transparent metallic gold with white head that quickly dissipates into thin lacing. Smells and tastes like a cheap 40 buzz; corn, metal, and butt pie. Definitely below average on the mouthfeel. Scroll past. Itzjerm (3074) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 4, 2013
This may be the worst thing to ever enter my mouth. Vinegar corn malt syrup. Looked fine. But that about the only good TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2013

Big Fucken forty @ home, thanks to the malt likka trading king, blackipa. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with a tiny white head. Cotton candy, orange citrusy, a bit corny, smooth aroma. A bit spicy, well carbonated, juicy fruit, citrusy flavor. Totally fucking swillable. Too bad Shaun Hill hasn’t stared to bottle forties yet. Would love to see hobos pounding clear liter bottles of Mimosa. Ostomo517 (73) - Norton Shores, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Clear gold color, outta a 40. Nose is mostly adjuncts of corn and rice, sweet with no hops at all. Really just somethin to swill while hanging out, nothin special at all but ok to get buzzed out on! DietPepsican (1592) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bracing for the smooth taste. gold. Bit of a white head inside the 40 itself. Smooth, clean, just a touch sweet. Minimal grape drank, no metal. Swills good. Crushed in 10 minutes. Nice. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: My favorite junk beer, but I still can’t give it a good score. I can’t believe I’d never rated this before. Nice and cheap. Great for knocking back ice cold while watching playoff games in any sport. The colder the better.
TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear, light yellow with nice carbonation and a small, white head that mostly diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma had moderate grain; light grassy and metallic hops; slight cardboard; cooked ham; a little butter; and something a little soured. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter; while the finish was slightly sweet, light to moderately sour and lightly bitter with a short duration. There was sour malt, vegetable, grain, sugar water, and slightly grassy and metallic hops. The light to medium body was watery and slightly syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.
