Dude, it's St. Ides... I won't describe it as toffee and carmelly or having a scent of summer prunes. It's one of the B-rated malt liquors that work if OE or the Colt aren't at the store. jpknight22 (171) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2002
OK, nothing called 'malt liquor' deserves an elaborate description of the palate, and aftertaste. In fact, one word describes it all - Rancid. This beverage has been of use to me for one purpose - a college theme party entitled 'Forties and the Frog' where guys drink 40's of Schlitz and St. Ides out of brown paper bags (ghetto style)and girls drink the local favorite community punch (in our case bullfrog).

Something a true alcoholic drinks. But like Colt 45, much better out of a brown paper bag. Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2002
To forty dogg's comment 'this stuff is shit' (not THE). Also, it is not 8.2% alcohol by volume, although it's hard to distinguish with listerine-type flavor. Drop this and get a King Cobra or even 'twist a 45 cap' if malt liquors are your drink of choice. Aurelius (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2002
Please take these ratings as one discussing the aesthetics of a given Andy Warhol painting compared to other Andy Warhol paintings. We will not attempt to compare to Michelangelo... Decent yeasty aroma. Terrible color, label and bottle. A passable corn, cane and adjunct-ridden flavor, with a hop or two run through the vat. A sticky, tangy aftertaste. Fit for marinade or baste. westchester4099 (2) - USA - MAY 17, 2002 does not count
this malt liquor does not smell that great and it doesnt taste that great, but its a mans beer and it will kick your ass. theres no reason to front when you're drinking a 40, and st. ides will do exactly what you want from a 40. so take it like a man, shut your hole, drink the beer, and get your fucking jaw loosed.
