Forty. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of intense corn, booze, faint hops. The taste is apples, corn, paper, grassy hops. Thin bodied. Poor even for a malt liquor. Dogbrick (12932) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Porter tasting on 12/4/08: The beer pours a clear light yellow-orange color with a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of corn and mild malt. Light-bodied with sweet vegetable and malt flavor. The finish is relatively flavorless with just a touch of sweet malt. Nowhere near as bad as I expected. Lack of flavor trumps horrible flavor any day. crossovert (12666) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2016 Sweet, fruity. A shitty AB produced malt liquor that I consumed with my brother on his 21st as a joke.
40. This stuff is as bad as ever, every off-flavor you dont want in a malt is in this brew. Corny, sweet, metallic, vomity finish. The worst. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"stronger aroma and flavor in this one than some other 40’s...but that is NOT...i repeat NOT, a good thing. If you like this "beer" please seek help from a mental health professional." deyholla (11503) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle. Poured a very pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma was very sweet, kind of like corn. Flavor was rough with an awkward sweet flavor.

Can. Sour milk, malt and bitter grass aroma. Golden yellow color with large head. Creamy sweet malt flavor - (no fusels thank goodness). Low carbonation. Not horrible - might have drank this in my malt liquor days. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Wow I cannot believe this is mar’s favorite beer. Smells like ass, looks like piss and tastes like both. If anyone ever chooses to drink this because they like it, they should be forever banished to the far reaches of the solar system...you hear that mar?? lol faroeviking (10840) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 17, 2007
40 ounce bottle. Yellowish colour, no head at all. Maltish grainy bit sweet brew. Cheap get drunk beer. DocLock (10652) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Yellow pour with a thick head. Alcohol in the taste, along with slight malt and very slight hops. Finishes acrid and ascerbic. adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
40 oz clear bottle @ home picked up at a small shop in Fort Collins. Poured into my HF tulip- has a clear, light golden appearance with a white head that dissipates quickly. Dull corn, sweet malt, metal notes in the nose- not world class malt liquer material at least in the nose. Veggie, chewy corn, fairly watery, a bit bready flavor. As the great womencantsail once said, this motherfucker is fairly inoffensive, but I wish I got a little more booze for the buck.
