Appearance: clear honey yellow, short fizzy white head. Aroma; creamed corn, grass, hint of hot metal, light skunk. Taste: sweet and grainy, with prominent cornbread, cardboard, and burnt hay. Finish: lasts too long, with sugary sweetness and alcohol vying for prominence. Notes: Exactly what I expected. Bottle sampled at Beerble Study, courtesy of Andy, who brought it either as a joke or some sort of punishment.

Pours a golden, dark straw color. I poured a pretty nice head that doesnt last long. Theres some spotty lacing on my glass.

Smells somewhat of corn. Theres some fruitiness in there. I also smell the water. I think I smell some sort of perfume. Its odd. Its light. But its there, I think.

Taste is pretty good. Its sweet. I can taste some grain and hops. It finishes just a tad bitter. Its a lot bitter than I expected. Roasted malt is heavy in the flavor, but not overly strong. Hops are showing pretty heavy also, but the sweetness reduces the bItterness. No alcohol flavor that I can tell.

Mouthfeel is medium. Goes down real easy. I could easily drink several of these. Pretty dry to the finish. Just a tad bit of bitterness.

Overall, this is the first time Ive had this. Im impressed. Ive been avoiding it, cant really say why. Its certainly one I would drink again. For the price, its hard to beat. Higher alcohol, decent flavor, and its cheeeeaaapp!

Onslow (1466) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Pour from a 24 ounce can. Pale yellow brew with a fizzy head that settles to a frothy scum. Aroma of corn and grain. Taste is sweet corny malt with a slightly astringent bite. Overall not offensive. These malt liquors / imperial adjunct lagers used to be considered strong but most single IPAs rival the 5.9% ABV found here.Bland brew that I enjoyed still.

Pyrmir (5864) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2015
Backlog from a trip to the USA a few years ago, bottled. Aroma and taste is sticky sweet, corn, alcohol and not much else. Not as terrible as described here thou but still a bad beer

Pour one for my Homies! The best thing about this beer, is that it will get you drunk. If you like Malt Liquor, or cheap beer, then this is right up the alley. Smells skunky, looks like pee, and oh yeah...did I mention that it gets you drunk? What could be better! But all kidding aside, its actually not THAT bad for the price, and I find it drinkable. Must be super-cold though....unless you like forced suffering and drinking semi-warm beer. Definitely need to be feeling the vibe though and/or know what you are getting into first.

Can thanks to Musso. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head. The aroma is corn malt. Similar flavor to nose, booze, metallic finish.

Not a bad malt liquor by any means. Reminds me of my younger summers skating the days away. Corn, sugar and rice all the way. Drink fast.

40oz "shatter proof" plastic bomber, twist cap into pint glass. Clear golden color with bright white head. Aroma notes of sweet corn, grain and kind of a dirty sweat aroma. Taste adds some corn flakes, light grass and metallic note. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with a light almost-cardboard finish. Only positive Im coming up with is that its cheap ($3).
