I would rather drink a tall can of Old English. This is like drinking any cheap old malt liquor, except it adds an extra bit of yeasty funk to the nose and the finish. This beer is gross. I’ll take any macro in the cooler over this abortion.

Pours piss (malt liquor) yellow with a small fizzy white head that is gone quickly. Smells like Hurricane. Tastes a little milder. Not a high carb. So much corn. Not good, but nostalgic.

22oz bomber, no date. Slightly hazy golden yellow with some chunky floaties and a one finger white head, fair retention. Aroma of old cooked corn and stale grain, a little honey sweetness. Flavor has a little more honey sweetness, otherwise the same but tastes better. There is a little alcohol fusel notes toward the semi-dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 2. Low carbonation with a medium body. I did not like this.

A: The pour is a clear golden color with a soapy white head that recedes quickly. S: This smells like a cheap white/sparkling wine. Very dry and cidery with lots of grape juice, peaches, apple juice, and definitely some significant alcohol contributions. T: The flavor is pretty much the same as the nose, but sweeter. Apple cider with some white grape juice flavor. There’s still that same cheap wine thing going on and a fair amount of alcohol. M: The body is medium with the carbonation being a bit high at first before dying down. D: For a "craft" malt liquor, this is pretty bad. I’d rather have any number of mass produced industrial malt liquors.

Bottle thanks to Tim. Pours clear yellow. Nose of malt and light pepper. Taste of light spiced malt. Mostly, just malt as expected.

Bottle. Pours golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of corn. Flavor of corn, light hops, and maybe some barley in there. Very easy drinking, I wish all malt liquor was this good.

10/16/10. Bomber. Sweet grainy aroma with a metallic sweet caramel grainy flavor that doesn’t disappoint in the malt liquor department. Hahahaha.

Clear amber with a small white head. Citrus and corn with a sweet hop flavor and lingering carbonation.

Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle pour to lager glass gives clear yellow color with white ring. Aroma sweet corn. Taste sweet corn, malts, a bit cloying. Mild hops on the finish. Palate medium and a little sticky. Slight alcohol. Boy I’ve had a lot worse beers than this including some rated much higher. Nice drink on a hot day.
