This beer sucks. Nothing good about this other than its cheap and is fun to play Edward 40 Hands. The smell is horrible. The taste is horrible. (Especially in a 40 oz, the last swig to end it is always the hardest) When I was poor, this was my drink of choice but now I can affoard some better brews and its totally worth it than buying this trash.

smaynard6000 (1117) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2017
32oz bottle. Pours an amber color with fizzy tan head. Super grainy and sweet aroma. Sickly sweet flavor. Light to medium bodied with a super sweet finish and flavor throughout. Its like pretty much every malt liquor.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 40 oz. glass bottle stolen from Chan Parks Kwik-E in San Agosto, California. Poured into a Plastic Snoopy water bowl. Tastes like terrier, brass spoon, polyurethane and freebase residue. Slight notes of malty kibble and old peed linoleum subfloor. Big, stupid bubbles symbolize the loss of will to live. As it warms, dont care anymore. Got to go buy a lottery ticket before 7 oclock. Definitely try if only to taste the dishonesty that exists between human beings.

Aroma - Sweet and somewhat over powering, some what of a fruity or expired fruit smell. Appearance - Good looking bottle. Sold in the big 40 Oz bottles because bulk is always cheaper. Taste - I drink this stuff warm as I do most beer. I find it honestly smoother and more flavourful that way. It has a clean, crisp taste and a smooth finish. Many will find the first 4 or 5 drinks will be a struggle, but after that it goes down nicely. Palate - Somewhat of a fruity, sugary taste while still keeping true to its golden colour. Overall - This always has been, and always will be my go to when i have enough money for it. Its a treat that you splurge on when pay day comes around. Great beer, only downside is the aroma.

Wow! Just wow. So it actually looks like it might be refreshing if icy and cold but no. No, no, no! It pours a nice light golden color with a pure white head that has good retention....aaaand thats where it ends. Zero flavor except maybe a little sweetness reminiscent of a cantaloupe. Has a body of a glass of water and an aroma of a stale band-aid. Thats all Ive got but then again what else do you need to know!

jjsint (2826) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2017 32-ounce container. Pours surprisingly light and sparkly. Babycham-esque. Toasty grainy scent. Not much. Taste also not much. Sweet and not too offensive but quite artificial. Weirdly astringent taste in the finish. Necco wafers and eggy bread in the aftertaste. Not impossibly awful but fairly pitiful.

Pale yellow orange, small white head. Aroma corn and alcohol. Sweet taste with gasoline. Not much to say here.
