    I'm an historian on the stuff...sort of.

    "Malt Liquor" is a legal construct. When Prohibition ended, there were standards in place. Actually they predate the repeal of Amendment XIIX - since Roosevelt, a Progressive and a dictator wannabee, used his pen-and-phone to immediately permit 3.2 beer sales. Pacifier for the masses.

    Once the legality followed the order, beer was given legal classification. For beer to be called beer, it could be no MORE than four-percent alcohol. That's weak, by world standards. No more than four, and no minimum requirement.

    In Canada, beer MUST BE five-percent alcohol by volume. Which demands more quality control, and packs a greater punch. German beer purity standards require higher, IIRC - not sure what they are, but our swill is laughed at in Germany. Or was, when Germans were German and not Moslem.

    Into this came a marketing stroke of genius - fortify a cheap brew and call it Malt Liquor. When I was a kid, Colt 45 was a new brew. It wasn't marketed to blacks in those days. But it took off, and all the other cheap fortified beers came out - Eight Ball, Crooked-I, a dozen others.

    When I was tight with money, and cheap, and not diabetic, I'd buy that stuff if it was on sale. Now...when there's good bourbon cheap, I wonder what I was thinking. But early experiences with whiskeys kinda shied me away for decades.
