Pours deep golden with 1" of dark white foamy head. Smells like sweet malt sugar and high fructose corn syrup, the stuff dreams are made of. The flavor is like sugary sweet feed and oats, and a yeasty malt with a slight doughy character. The mouthfeel maintains a refreshing carbonation and bears a sweetness to it to rival even the most steadfast fundip from the ice cream truck, or wherever you got it. The beer has has a very slight ’lowercase’ belgian yeast taste to it. Very enjoyable with no hint of the 8.5. The finish has a little fizz, and a lightly sweet malt, and a hint of the taste of the beer that made Milwaukee famous. DietPepsican (1590) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Finally rated all of the schlitz malt likka. Very nice. Gold pour with a nice white head. The american malt liquors kick so much more ass. This one is all sorts of grape drank littered with some corn notes, a touch of sweetness, and a kiss of grassy hoppiness. clean finish, not bad for the abv either. fucken a bro.

picked this up from some shitty gas station in Florence, Sc. Pours clear straw gold. Sits in my glass while I contemplate purchasing a year long pass to the US Airways Clubs. I probably won;t but I find it ironic. Premium product vs pure unadulterated Malt Liqour goodness. I will say this, if the travel continues it may be worth while. nose is pure malt and corn. taste follows. sweet, but not cloying. slight booze burn on finish. medium to full body. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
24 oz. can poured into a snifter. It’s actually very pretty in the glass. Nice clear pale gold color with a decent white head that shrinks in about 60 seconds. The aroma is rather sweet smelling with some apples and corn. Mild earthy hops in the background. The flavor is similar, but more malt based with hints of apple and high boost. Pretty dry for an 8.5% beer, but alcoholic with some very mild hints of earthy hops in the finish. Not too shabby. I’d be really interested to try this next to some of the "craft" Malt Liquors, like the ones from Moonlight, Craftsman and Beachwood. I’m not sure this would be much worse.

Can shared at the Cotteridge Convention - 2016 edition. This one I picked up in the US. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a big, frothy white head. The nose has sugary cereal, dough, light lemon. Medium sweet flavour, sugary, with doughy white bread, some apples. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with ripe citrus, white bread, accents of melon. Good malt liquor. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 710 ml. can, coded freshness on the bottom of the can, an updated logo with the new Schlitz malt liquor bull, sampled in a lager glass.
L: Clear golden yellow appearance with a surprising large white head of frothy foam, the head has a mighty firmness, not the usual whiff of a head that you see on the majority of malt liquors, there is even a splotchy curtain of lace ringing the glass, color me impressed.
S: White all-purpose flour, dry grain and a hint of cornmeal, framing the edges is wafting lemon corny alcohol, just the lightest of solvent scents . I’ll give this some deserved credit, it doesn’t have that sulphuric manure smell that a lot of other malt liquors emit.
F&T: This possesses a nice soft creamy crispness, giving the body some heftiness, making this quite easy to consume. Sugary, grainy malts with a touch of dried maize, there is really nothing in the way of an offensive taste, once again, surprising for a malt liquor. This contains the mildest of alcohol bites, if it wasn’t for the alcohol warmth in the back of throat, I would have never guessed it’s true strength. A light macro lager lemony flavor in the middle, this finishes dry with a little generic hop spiciness coming out, the ending has a nice cleanliness to it, upping the drinkability for me personally. As it warms it does acquire some solvent/fusel alcohol harshness as all malt liquors do, needs to be consumed as cold as possible.
This is actually a fairly malt liquor. In few ways this reminds me of some of the better pale Euro Strong Lagers I’ve tried. If you only have a dollar-fifty in your pocket, you wouldn’t be going wrong by picking this, you’ll even get some change back, sweet.

Score! Straw colored pour with a big white head. Grass, malt, and corn. Apple esters, yeast, and a bit of biscuit, actually. Not bad. The flavor is quite sweet, but not bad, either. Heavy on the corn, but some actual malt and bread flavors. A bit of grass, some apple, yeast, and a little bit of paper. ffbot (417) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Smell is alcohol, metal, cereal and...caramel? Wow, complexity in the nose. Taste is harsh, leathery. Earth, nutty, rough and rocky like an ice brew. This is actually kinda good. much better than the Schlitz OML beer_rookie (554) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Another review gobbled up by the net. This shall be quick.
Pours a very clear, very straw color. Good lacing, good retention. White head, about two fingers.
Arona is corn, sweet alcohol. Grape skin.
Taste is corn and grape skin. Sweet, malty, low hops.
Mouthfeel is medium full. Heavy, sweet. Easy to drink.
Overall, good. May or may not buy again, may recommend. Beer!
