Pours a lovely straw color. Thick head, overwhelms my glass. Highly carbonated, Im watching the little bubbles crazily rising from the bottom. Thin lacing around the glass.

Aroma is pretty harsh at the first. But after it mellows out a bit, its okay. Its slightly sweet, slightly grainy. I smell something that I think might be hops, Im not real sure. Im not super impressed by the smell.

Taste is pretty smooth. Its sweetish. I taste some apple, seems like some caramel. I cant decide on my rating for taste.

Mouthfeel is not great at the start, but as it mellows out, its pretty smooth. Its not very crisp. I dont know how drinkable this is, it is pretty heavy.

Overall, its okay. I like it. Im not crazy about it. I had it from a 24oz can, poured into a pint glass. The first half wasnt great, the second half, that Im basing the review on, is better. I dont know if my palate is adjusting to it, or what the dealio is. If you havent had it, its worth a try. Its pretty good.

Has a very strong apple juice flavor. Its not bad, but it doesnt taste like beer all that much.

Upon popping the can and taking a whiff, you just might throw up. Chances of vomiting will increase dramatically with imbibement. Texture is not bad and doesnt leave bitterness like many IPAs will but that is the ONLY advantage. I drank this stuff for years and while I have saved a lot of money... I also gained about 40 lbs. This dirty, filthy son of the devil will get you plenty wasted for pretty cheap but only the most desperate, bravest people will choose this over a good IPA.

Can during RBWG hotel lobby tasting night 1, 19/02/15, guess thanks to Homer or Drewface I reckon ? Pale golden with a big old white covering. Nose is pale malts, cereal, grain. Taste comprises paper, light caramel, grain, hint of vanilla. Medium bodied, fine carbonation with a smooth satisfying feel, light booze essence at the curtain call. Looks good, feels good - ok ML.

From 40oz. Bottle in a paper bag on a Wednesday afternoon. Nice and cold. Corn syrup, old grain and water. Mild beer-like taste even. Sweet. Drinks well enough for the price. Drinks really well for the alcohol content. Get buzzin quick on the cheap. Who needs a job??

ffbot (376) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 7, 2015
Hmm. The deep, sicky yellow coloring is offputting. The taste is alcohol, corn, and sweetness, bland. The appearance is dismal, zero carbonation or head or anything appealing to the eye. All in all it only exists to get you drunk, there is no other reason to purchase it

24oz can from The Shell Station on Nash St. It cost $1.59 + tax. Can poured into my Highland pint glass. Golden hue, normal clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. No lacing. Aroma of flat corn. Corn and barley taste up front with more of a sweet malt finish. Not my favorite malt liquor but not terrible.
