Drank this straight from the can. I didnt know if this was a "true" malt liquor or not, but indeed it is. Given that information this might just be second runner to Mickeys in terms of smooth and regular tasting malt liquors. Also, this is a higher percentage so that gives this beer more credibility that it is drinkable. Nice blond coloring with light carbonation. Smell is hay, sweet, some metal and tiny bit alcohol. Taste is good, has a nice mouthfeel and feels like a true beer going down. Highly satisfying, I drank this on a warm pleasant day in my back yard and I felt like it was the perfect beer for it. I like this beer, I might like this more than Mickeys actually....

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a billowy white head of two finger height. The head has a light level of retention, fading rather fast to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma of the beer is strongest of a corn and sweet caramel smell. Along with these smells comes some notes of a paper smell as well as a little bit of a more grainy aroma. Taste The taste begins with a sweeter corn syrup taste mixed with a little bit of a bready flavor. As the taste advances some more metallic and paper flavors join the taste profile, giving a somewhat off flavor to the brew. A grainy flavor replaces the bready at the end of the taste, with the flavor that is left on the tongue at the end being one that is of a malt liquor base, with it being somewhat musty and metallic, all while not super offensive,. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner and more watery side for an ale of 7.2 % with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. While it has a lighter body, the thinner feel mixed with the higher carbonation level is more appropriate for the sweeter, more malt liquor like flavors of the brew, and make for a rather easy drinking feel. Overall Not the greatest malt out there. It has a bit too much of an off metallic and papery taste to make it one of the better for the style.

16 Oz can poured incorrectly. Figured what the hell. Barely local, but still. need the tick. Horrible aroma to this. Ouch. Suprised I can drink this stuff with this blast of pure nasty. Flavor is much better, though that doesnt necessarily make it good. Flavor is mostly absent, which I dont know if I should be thankful for. Crisp finish. People drink this for pleasure? This was strictly business. To end on a good note, there absolutely has to be something worse out there. Maybe Im being a little harsh. Tastes like a less than appealing pilsner. Alllllright.

a "little" better than the standard Rainer (which is utter garbage so really not a compliment). Just less offensive swill with better body and ever so slightly cleaner.

Can @ Presidential Suite. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Ginger ale, 7 Up, and corn. Very sweet, sugary, and cidery. Flavor is just all sugary sweetness. Corn, apple juice, and 7 Up. Really weird chemical bitterness. Not tame.

16 oz. can opened at the RBSG bottle n fart n malt liquor share. Pours a pale gold, clear, with a small white head. Notes of pale malts, corn, straw, minerals, candy, maybe some apple. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. The Koolie 600 right before it worked a bit better.

I have wanted to try this beer for a very long time and now that I have I am disappointed it is neither as good nor as bad as I hoped. It is clear and strong and just petering on the edge of where malt liquors taste like stronger versions of regular cheap beer and start getting into strange Jolly Rancher off notes. Definitely a good choice if you are of the mindset to get good and hammered.
