Bought as a part of the Hell BIF and as an occasional dip back into the world of "normal" beer. Of course.. this at 7.3% abv isn't really a normal beer. More like a Malt Liquor. Heck.. even comes in the tall boy can!
Sampled in my nice 12 oz Falcons Tulip.
Beer pours light gold yellow with sparkling clarity and a low white head that disappears quickly.
Aroma is lightly alcoholic with a grainy corn sweetness wafting off a CO2 burn.
Flavor to the brew is candy corn sweet with a pricking of CO2 that evidences in the background a mysterious heretofore unknown presence in a beer from the Miller plant in Irwindale.. hops! Light and spicy with just a touch of green to them.
Overall.. meh.. way way too sweet to my taste without anything to balance, but it's cheap if that's where your thrill lies. As for it being a cream ale, not quite. Much too big, too much alcohol burn and too much residual sweetness to match the likes of Little Kings or Genesee in that style.

Appearance Very light yellow in the body with a giant head that went down slowly and laced the glass. Looks good.
Smell Doesnt smell good. The funky sweaty horse aroma from the beer is back. This is raunchy.
Taste Egad! Its a horseskunk! This is unbelievable. The soft grain and cheap sugars are dwarfed by the mating of an overworked mare and skunk road kill.
Mouthfeel Surprisingly flat and uneventful.
Drinkability A prose, if I may:
and boy does it stink.
belongs in the sink.

Ok I had heard about this semi-legendary beer up here for a while..but had not seen it for a year, when I spotted it in a 40 oz green bottle in Albertsons.
Ok its actually quite a nice looking beer in the glass..a nice solid golden colour with a good sized white head..that went down but a small semblance persisted to the end of the beer.
Nice fresh smell..mostly malts..nothing exciting but reasonable.
This is pretty thin and malty..but i cant really taste the 7.3% alcohol..well hidden, until you feel it later half way down the throat but its not unpleasant.
Feels rather "different" on the palate surprisingly creamy and smooth.
This is actually a very good deal for $1.70 a 40 ozer..a step above many macros..its not great but I can see why many used to like this before the dawn of the micro beers.
