40z bottle (nicely designed); pleasing to hold. Smell is a warming aroma of alcohol and fruit. Flavor is smooth and warm, best if consumed straight from the bottle and not quickly (cannot comment on the pour). Finish is free of any bitterness or bite, leaving you to crave another good sip. Overall, surprisingly pleasing to buy and drink.

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 (2575) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
32-ounce container. Pours surprisingly light and sparkly. Babycham-sequel. 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.

Havent tasted this beer since the mid 70s. Once was enough! I still have nightmares. If you know anyone who likes this beer, stay away from them, theyre probably dangerous.

3 or so oz sample from a 24oz can, while waiting in line at Perennial for a Side Project release. This beer takes all the offensive flavors typically found in macro lagers, the flavors that are typically subdued and are undetected when you drink ice cold as encouraged, and amplifies them. This is a beer for someone who really likes the way warm Busch tastes, but wants much more of that awful flavor in their face, at a more drinkable temperature. Its every bit as bad as anyone has ever claimed it to be.

Clear 22oz bottle shared at Cotteridge II as Olde English 800. Many thanks to MacBoost and the West Mild-lands crew for this one. Clear yellow, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is corn, rug, malt sugars. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Taste is cardboard, corn, pale biscuit. Pretty insipid. Yep, not great. (1.8)

Bottle split at CCii, thanks to Bootsy, Sraky and RTV in some form of triste, 05/03/16. Pale golden blonde with a moderate off white covering. Nose is straw, grain, paper, cereals. Taste comprises light caramel wafer, grain, straw, pale malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so affair ... wat is the point of a Malt Licker without the boost?
