Magnum Malt Liquor

This 5.6% ABV malt liquor offering is from the Miller Brewing Company. Miller's 40 ounce bottles are now plastic, which offends my old school sensibilities.  

The beer pours golden in color with over an inch of pure white head that leaves light lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet grain, honey, tangy, a bit metallic, with an odor approximating grassy hops. The taste follows the aromas, but is a bit cleaner and more balanced than the aroma. The beer drinks easy with quite with a strong carbonation, particularly for a malt liquor. In quite the change for a malt liquor, this one is as good out of a glass as it is out of the bottle. Pretty darn good as malt liquors go, but I swear the plastic leaves a note in the aftertaste.
