Heathen's rating

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.

Look- Nice Golden with a very thick White Head. Smell-Lots of Barley Malt and Sweet Corn. Lots of Yeasty Breadiness. And, a little bit of Hops..not much. Taste- Very sweet..not sickly sweet though. Lots of Barley Malt, Corn up front with a slight Fruity note. Yeasty Breadiness in the middle. And a little bit of Hops at the end. Finish is very crisp, clean, and refreshing. Mouth Feel-Light to Medium with a Light to Medium Body. Overall- Its a great Malt Liquor to try from AB-InBev. A nice well rounded beer flavored Malt Liquor with a slight Fruity note. Better than King Cobra in my opinion

8.1% ABV version. Pours a finger of head, clear straw body. Aroma is ripe peach but less fruity. Taste is super sweet with a long sweet finish. Texture seems sticky but that's probably just the long sweet finish linger. I'm not drinking the whole 25 oz. I got three drinks in and poured it out.

Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - JUN 2, 2017
The appearance was a heavy burnt yellow color with no head or lace and yes, I understand the style isn’t supposed to have any head or lace, but here’s the rest: the aroma had some super sweet corn and breadiness, and then sugar cane. The flavor was just plain sweet with a long sweet semi-boozy aftertaste. Finish was cloyingly sweet. The palate was medium bodied with not much sipping or sessionable qualities about it. Carbonation felt okay. ABV felt fine. Overall, super hard for me to honestly rate since I’m not a fan of the style and well, rating is more based on observations.

Aroma and flavor is corn/grains, mild fruit and a sweet/alcoholic finish. Kind of like a big industrial macro lager, not horrendous, it was passable.

It’s cheap and has a better taste than any other malt liquor. It is sweet with just enough hops for balance. Note: I drink the 8.1% ABV version.

Cavie (4874) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Giant can. Labeled as Category 5. Very clear, bubbly. Yellow. Smells metallic and grainy. Fusal alcohols. Plastic flavor, grains, bitter. Not tasty.

Jow (4169) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Can near the register for $1, figured up my malt liquor ticks but alas became more complicated. Black can says Category 5 all over it so I assume it’s new with slightly different abv than original hurricane. Dull pissy yellow pour. Nose is cardboard and sour malt. Tastes of leaves, malt, damp carpet. Not pleasant.

DerGantzel (513) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2016
Not much aroma except malt. Pale and clear with a white head. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Average carbonation and thin. Not very good.

Shanebrews (299) - Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2016
This is a fairly light flavored malt liquor. It still features lots of carbonation, and a urine yellow appearance. The taste is not off-putting though. It is mildly sweet with no bittering. The stuff is adequately smooth. Not bad.

DandyWolfFloyd (1260) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Aroma - a touch of grass, some bread, even a bit of soap. Appearance - body is pale yellow very clean with abundant nucleation. The head is full about 2" and white. Taste - spiced hops, malts are hard to detect ~ doesn’t taste corny, doesn’t have a corn syrup taste ~ suggest the malt is likely rice. A small bit of paper. Palate - body is on the light end, lively carbonation, and neutral finish little fizzy burn.
