Another review gobbled up by the net. This shall be quick.JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 8, 2008
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!
Yellow straw color with a smallish off-white, bubbly head. Grainy aromas, with mostly corn, but I do detect some malt and a touch of floral hops. Hold the phone, this actually has some malt flavors. Sweet pale malt start, with a bit of corn syrup and touch of light melon in the middle that works its way to the finish. Light alcohol is noticed slightly in the middle and then after a while in the stomach. Touch of minty/herbal hops also come in late. Does seem to get a bit thick and cloying at times as I seem to be scraping my tongue. Linger is fairly light and a mild return of malt is unveiled. This is certainly one of the better high gravity/malt liquors I have had in some time. It strong, fairly sweet, but it does have some malt character and a backbone. I’d bag this and drink it on any street corner from time to time. johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Pours a crystal clear deep straw bordering on golden color with a good two finger bubbly white head that shows some decent staying power and lace. Yup looks like a macro lager all right. Smells of sweet grainy malt with faint wisps of creamed corn and alcohol. Smells a little better than I thought it would. Taste is kind of what I expected, sweet grainy malts with maybe a hint of cherry or apricot. Really! Bitter alcohol burn into the finish. Lots and lots of bubbles, medium body with a sweet slick mouthfeel. Honestly if they put some hops in here it wouldn’t be half bad. As is this serves its purpose, a cheap quick drunk. I do enjoy purchasing 24 oz of 8.5% beer for $1.69, if only today’s craft brewers could bring us that level of value for our money. Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle shared at Cotteridge Tasting II (2016), cheers Leighton!scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Sharp, cider like aroma, pouring clear pale blonde with a white lacing. Fruity, vegetal, heavy and sweet not aided by low carbonation - starts off fairly decently, reckon a few drops of bittering extract could help it.
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 24 oz. can. Pours a golden color with almost no head. Aroma is of fruit, grain and alcohol. The taste is sort of sweet and of fruit and grain. The alcohol is barely noticeable. This beer is easily one of my favorite malt liquors. It is smooth, clean and refreshing. Plus it is dirt cheap. At about $1 a can, you can’t go wrong with this. An excellent brew that tastes pretty good and is easy to get drunk on.

Can… Clear yellow lager with a small, wispy, white head. Grainy, breadsy, peppery-spicy nose. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Leans on the sweet side of balance – sort of sweet and corny. The alcohol doesn’t jump right up and bite you. Lightly sweet, corny, minerally finish. Neither better nor worse than DFH’s and Pizza Port’s attempts at American malt liquor. Garrold (5265) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
From a can. Cotteridge Beano v2. Yellow. White head. Nose has green apple. Paint thinner. Taste is sweet. Some smoke, unexpectedly. Burns on the way down. Crap, but not awful.

24oz. can from Party Time Liquor. Light golden in color upon pouring. Sweet corn aroma. Some grains. Flavor is fairly grainy with a touch of malt. Not nearly as sweet as you typical malt liquor. Some alcohol in the finish. One of the better malts around. Not too hard to drink, and it’s not even ice cold. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Can. Poured golden with a tall white head that settled quickly. Aroma of grain, citrus, and a light spice background. The flavor found citrus and light spices. Light body, crisp and dry, grain aftertaste. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2008
24oz can. black with gold bull. Pours clear, golden, big bubbles. Thin white head. Not much corn. Flavor lacks the trademark corn, vegatable aromas and flavors. Could this be made with with rice?? Very smooth, just like the label states. Better than most Malt Liquors.
