22 oz. bottle. A clear piss-yellow pour with a small and fizzy off-white head. This beer features the crisp smell of corn with just a bit of caramel. Thin and watery. Goes down crisp. Caramel starts things off and transitions to some grain and corniness. Pretty sugary and syrupy sweet. Good for a malt liquor, but why even bother?

Bottle: What a beauty ... golden and effervescent with a tornadic swirl of active carbonation resulting in a nice white head. Musty malt aroma. Smooth silky beer with a sugary candy-corn flavor ... this is remarkably like a "40" but somehow more respectable. Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Drinks like uncarbonated sugar water. Slightly hoppy-dry. By the time I managed to get to the end of a pint, it had improved a little. A little. No, sir, I don’t like it. The only thing this helped me get was a headache in the morning.

This malt liquor pours a yellow gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied malt liquor. Malts are fruity and sweet, touch of corn. Mild hops. Kind of sweet and well malt liquorish, without that high gravity oiliness. Hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet. redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Has a feint malty aroma, very feint, and clean. Pours light blonde, with little head, and champagne like bubbles. Sweet malt up front, with a dry hoppy finish. Not bad.

Poured a clear yellow color with a small white head and fizzy bubbles rising to the top. Malty aroma was very grainy with big cereal notes. Sweet malty grainy flavor. Light to medium bodied JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
I did a side by side with this brew and Cuvee de Tomme at Noogfest II...
Seriously, for Malt liquor, this isn’t too bad. brentfeesh (1216) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Shared with everyone at Noog-fest-II. Everyone give a big thanks to Jamie at "From the Vine" in Colubus Ohio for this treat. Pours a fine clear yellow piss color (and I mean that in a nice way). Lightly sweet corn aroma. Sweet flavor, corn and syrup and light alcohol. Creamy sticky body. Really, not too bad for a malt liquor. Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Probably one of the best malt liquors Ive tried. A golden appearance with a malty aroma. Some lemon and hay appears in the flavor. Very smooth easy drinking especially for the ABV. Run to the shelter of dads little helper. hopscotch (11246) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle... Clear, yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Malty, grainy nose with lots of black pepper, corn and a touch of mint. Malty, sweet flavor, but spiced up decently with those crystal hops. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Finishes sweet and alcoholic with mild bitterness. Good malt liquor. Why craft brewers do this style, I have no idea. I guess it’s fun for them. Why heavy metal bands do ballads, I have no idea. I guess it’s fun for them. Both disciplines do a really good job at the crossover attempt, putting full-time swill and ballad makers to shame. Yep, I guess that’s fun. I’m a little tipsy... and having fun!
