Presentation: It was poured from a 24oz can into a big mug. The can has the abv (8.5%) and a freshness date of "JUL1111" printed on the bottom.
Appearance: The body had a light yellow color with very good clarity. This was a lighter than I was expecting but not out of place. On top the tall three finger head of bright white foam settles down to thin cap which actually hangs on well. Lacing is minimal and very slick.
Smell: It is fairly light with pale cereal grain, grassy hay like hops and minimal sweet corn/vegetable notes.
Taste/Palate: The flavor matches the aroma exactly with a fairly dry finish and offers it up in a light-medium body with smooth but lively carbonation.
Notes: It’s surprisingly light and drinkable. generallee08 (778) - New York, USA - SEP 24, 2014

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 (1589) - @ $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.

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. ffbot (444) - 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 (665) - 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!
