Unoffensive aroma, very light, maybe a little grass and wheat was all I could pick up, Not suref what it looks like - itís malt liquor, so you better drink it straigh out of the big-ass can! But I bet it is a clear, medium yellow, pouring with a small, thin head, and leaves little lacing. I wouldnít say it tastes "good," but not really bad, either. Not overly sweet or especially corny, like so many malt liquors, and the alcohol does not dominate. Surprisingly drinkable for a cheap, 8.5% malt liquor. Much better than say, Earthquake, the Camo line, Steel Reserve, etc., and much less work than OE 800, which seems like a whole meal in a bottle. On par with mickeyís, in my opinion, though sweeter and higher in alcohol content, and perhaps even lighter.
If you are low on cash (but not actually a bum), want to get fuxored up, and canít stand Earthquake, Four Loco, or anything else ridiculously sweet, 2 or 3 of these are just what you are looking for. Heck, it shows its Strohís/Pabst/Miller lineage in that it almost tastes like a decent old man beer. If this suddenly became the only beer available on Earth, Iíd cry, but I could get used to it. Bottom line: it is what it is, junk, but pretty good junk that Iíll probably try again some day. Cybercat (5737) - Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Aroma is actually better than I expected - nothing to write home about, as the old cliche goes, but rather nice. It is strong, fruity - mainly apple - and malty, better than what I expected from a beer of this type. It pours a rather uninspiring clear wan yellow with a rather typical white head. Flavor is not too shabby, though - stronger and fuller than I expected, malty and fruity with a bit of a nip. Itís actually a little enjoyable! Texture is smooth and just a bit fizzy, no big shakes, but better than most industrial swill I have had. OK if there isnít much else to drink. Camons (12296) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2012
Can @ Timbers, Denver. Pours golden with a white head, loads of ībig bubblles along the glassides. Aroma is bread, sugar, alcohol, cardboard. Taste is malt, sugar, corn, alcohol. Thin body, lively carbonation. 190212 sailracer (486) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Can (didnít have a paper bag handy!). Iím embarrassed to review this but needed the style towards getting all 73. The color was light gold. The flavor was malty sweet with little flavor or aroma. Definitely strong, though the alcohol taste isnít prevalent. Leaves a slightly sweet and sour aftertaste. Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2012
24 oz can from NH Cumberland Farms, because this crazy gangsta can was too much to pass by. Sweet malty ad corn syrup aroma does an okay job covering the high test backbone of the beer. Looks like many lighter lagers. Tastes candy sweet with a hint of rotten apples, and of course alcohol. It is slick but sharp, with a crisp and drying finish . When I saw it the assumption was that it would rate terribly here, but this oneís not bad. There are far worse malt liquors out there, and most of them of from the state of Wisconsin as well.

(can - 24 oz) Gold pour with a fizzy head. Overly sweet corn and malt aroma. Flavor is sweet, like most malt liquors, with a much too sweet and alcohol finish. vipinvelp (4368) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Clear yellow, small lacing white foam ring. Malty aroma, kind of sweet. Alcohol tasting sweetness, small malt tone. (Memphis 201505) PorterPounder (7884) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Jacksonville, Fl. - Kangaroo Convenience Store - somewhere off of I-295. Big, mean looking black 24 oz can. Light golden pour, with a pithy white head. Slight wet paper bag aroma with some grassy notes and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is not as deplorable as expected - this is not your Dad’s malt likkah from the ’70s. Some syrupy sweetness of course, but misses that that clenching texture and flavor that many MLs have. Hint of honey sweetness with a heavy alcohol back end. While not harsh - definitely not for the faint of heart or stomach. Like its moniker - VSL - all in all a very smooth lager. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Purchased from a ghetto market in Cincinnati, Ohio - Hey, ikt is ghetto male liqour marketed to the darker populace... did you expect it to taste good? JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
Pale golden with a fast fading white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with a bit of corn character as well. There may even be a kiss of earthy hop character. Lightly fruity flavour. Itís not all that bad really. May be one of the better of the high gravity ones.
