Can. The following is a compilation of a dozen peoples’ thoughts who shared this brew with me at my first (and perhaps last?) Malt Liquor Dexterity Games Tournament to celebrate my birthday. Keeping in mind that most of the participants are not regular beer raters, here we go: clear pale yellow, aroma of eggy fart and dirty dishrag, sweet corny and gross, I would prefer an actual axe to the head thanks, 11/100 well done, just awful, it certainly tastes strong but 11%??...come on man, sulfur and soap what’s not to love? ozzy70 (1283) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 18, 2017
40 oz. bottle from the rare/reserve beer cellar at The Quicky Mart. Clear golden, white head. Aroma was sweet grain, corn, apple. Taste was sweet, alcohol, apple. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - DEC 27, 2016
Initially poured from 40 into a pint glass (just because I sorta feel I have too…), but then drank the rest from the bottle as it actually should taken down.
Appearance – The beer pours a golden straw color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades very fast to leave a hint of foam on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a mix of corn, hot booze, and a little bit of caramel.
Taste – The taste begins much less boozy then I was anticipating from the nose with it being mostly of a corn taste mixed with some sweetness of corn syrup and caramel. As the taste advances some of the sweetness fades all while the corniness gets stronger and is joined by some musty tastes. Toward the end some of the booze hits the tongue, but overall remains rather light (for a malt at 11% abv.) and ends up leaving one with a stale corn taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The body of the brew is on the slightly more watery side with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the high gravity malt liquor the feel is spot on and helps to create a more easy drinking brew overall.
Overall – For an 11% malt I was expecting a booze bomb, but really it was not all that hot. It certainly was more easy drinking then I was anticipating.

I had like two sips before the drain pour. very sweet, malt, corn, metal. light to medium body. dekester1 (370) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours a deep gold with decent head and lacing. Aroma of malts and grains. Taste has a hint of prunes along with malt and grains - mid-mild hop finish and alcohol notes. Palate is OK for what it is. Overall, a typical malt liquor.

Big can picked up in Wisconsin from old notes. Pours a clear yellow gold color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet corn, grains, alcohol, sugar sweetness, metallic, garbage, this is just not good and the only reason to have tried it is the added tick on the big beer list.

Well, it’s a nice golden color. Aroma of chlorine and garbage. Tastes like a rotting bag of trash with some moldy funk and chemicals. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Creamed corn and garbage on the nose. Great appearance hazy golden lace and legs. Fuck yeah. Tastes like artificial garbage and cream corn and vodka. Holy shit. All with a chlorine chemical finish. Wow. phaleslu (10673) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Sampled at the grand tasting at RBSG. Pours a pale, clear gold with a small white head. Looks gross. Smells and tastes gross, too: metal, corn, sugar- just sweet and off. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an excessively sweet mouthfeel. You know what? I prefer the dipass fruited versions of this. I’d rather drink candy if I’m going to drink garbage. It at least has some childishly enjoyable flavor. Patrickctenchi (6732) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2014
King Can: (1pt,8 oz) .....ohhh.....why?
Pours clear, bubbly yellow-gold with a frothy white head.
Sweet corn/grain, white fruit and alcohol burn.
Sugary, sugary sweet with a pronounced, harsh alcohol burn....
I can’t believe a Minhas Malt Liquor wasn’t very good..AND at .04 cents an ounce...I really feel cheated.
