Tallboy into a pint glass. Pours hay with no real head. Corny aroma. Taste is cereal and corn. Definitely inferior to Schlitz OML. Still fairly smooth and crisp, but the booze definitely cuts through. RichTheVillan (7850) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Can at CWC II; clear yellow pour with a big white head, sweet grain and malt aroma, taste has cereal, straw, some biscuits, sweet malts. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Can. Pours a lively yellow with a nice white head and an aroma of corn flakes and wheat bread. Tastes like watery vegetable with a slight malt finish accompanied by stale corn syrup. Watery yet buttery-slippery mouthfeel. The alcohol is well-hidden. For a cheap malt liquor, it’s not bad. Ernest (7695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (grain, cereal, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of alcohol and metal.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Aye, ’tis a simple adjuncty beer but hey, there’s hops in here, and it’s not nearly as filthy as a great many in this genre. If you want to swill on something cheap just to get wrecked, this would be a reasonable option. Slipstream (2625) - USA - APR 21, 2008
Going for the good stuff here - a tall boy can, called a "high gravity lager" on the label. I recall the old Schlitz, the beer that made Milwaukee famous, but that brewery is long gone. This stuff is made by Miller, who must have purchased the name. The brew looks pretty good - gold color with a decent head. Bland aroma with a hint of motor oil. Fairly sweet, cornlike flavor with a touch of herbs. The high alcohol content is masked well. It is not flavorless or burdened with a metallic taste the way some cheapo beers are. This stuff is not too bad, actually - it exceeded my low expectations.

We drink this crap for one reason and one reason only ! unclemike (3124) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours golden with white head. Aroma and taste have plenty of malts with ample sweetness - corn. Overall not an awful beer, it can only get as good as the price of the can. Just nothing I would buy. geologyguy (1602) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014
slightly apple smell....taste is also of slight apples and a little bit of sweetness...finish is a little more harsh like a malt liquor normally is...almost tastes like a light cider and malt liquor were mixed...better than straight malt liquor though!

Can from the gas station. Pours a transparent golden with no head. Aroma and taste of cheap malts. SarkyNorthener (4614) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Cotteridge Convention II. Can shared thanks Leighton, cheers Leighton. Gold beer with small head. Aroma of tin and sweetcorn. Taste is sweetcorn and nail varnish. Not great.
