Oakes (17181) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2000
UPDATED: APR 9, 2003 Light gold colour, oversized bubbles, soapy-looking head; aroma of fusels, shitty homemade scrumpy, grass, and so much DMS it's more like vomit than corn. Soft initial sweetness (malt? could it be?) give way quickly to harsh alcohol, dms, cider, and a whole host of other nasties. This beer is like a guy with 8 different diseases.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 27, 2010
A: The pour is a golden color with an initially voluminous white head. S: A bit of skunk, apple juice, corn, and a touch of alcohol. T: Initially bland followed by some overly sweet corn syrup, apple juice, and more corn and alcohol. M: A bit of a light body with a moderate carbonation. D: Not as bad as some of the other malt liquors out there, but I wouldnt want to take the fawty to the face.

bhensonb (14989) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
The aroma is corny, but not so bad as many malt liquors; might actually be a bit of malt aroma. Brassy gold color with a white head that slowly diminished. Thin to medium in body. The carbonation is mild and creamy. The flavor is decent malt, and there is not really any bitter worth noticing. It seems to generate heat rather rapidly. Ok, if a malty, unbitter lager kind of thing is desired.

Tmoney99 (14292) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Bottle 40 oz. Light clear amber color with large white frothy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Sour grainy aroma. Light body with flat carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a small bitter finish of short duration. Not something I would recommend to a freind.

Scopey (14257) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 24oz can as part of the Thunderbird malt liquor tasting. It pours a seductable golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose is white musk, spice, rotten apple and hooker perfume. The taste is sweetcorn, corn syrup, garbage, sugar and rotten fruit with a nasty compost finish. Light body, maximum damage. Lives up to the hype.

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.

Drake (13546) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Poured from a 40. Pours a sickly pale yellow color that threw up some sizeable head. Aroma of corn and grain. Slight skunk, but less than expected. Taste is very similar to the aroma. Body is... inconsistent. Actually somewhat better than I expected.
