King Cobra Premium Malt Liquor

This is one of the malt liquor offerings from the Anheuser-Busch giant.  It clocks in at 6.0% ABV.  The beer pours a honey golden in color with a small white head that leaves some lacing down the glass.  The aroma is slightly sweet, fruity, tangy, a bit of apple, with some underlying sweet and toasted grain.  The taste generally follows the aroma and the beer is very carbonated, particularly for a malt liquor.  It comes to a dry and lightly grassy finish, but not really with any bitterness. There is some straw on the aftertaste. Pretty drinkable and inoffensive for a malt liquor. It tastes about the same from the glass as the bottle, which is a good sign, as most of the malt liquors are much better from the bottle (as you can't really smell them then).
