2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a big bubbly white head with average retention. Aroma of sweet malt with a dose of cough medicine. Taste is more enjoyable then I was expecting with a nice base of sweet malt, limited amount of corn or adjunct is detectable and then cough medicine appears at the end to ruin it all. Could have been worse but could have been a lot better.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
1 Pint Bottle
Poured golden yellow with white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma was flowery to me, but didn’t smell all that great. First taste brought out flowery tones, corriander I thought, the finish was sweet like Vanilla. It was an interesting taste. Good thing was I couldn’t taste the 8% alcohol. However, I don’t think that I would get this again, not my style. It was labeled as a Strong Ale.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not too good. Pale yellow with a small white head. Alcohol was very present in the aroma and flavor. I knew I was trying a malt liquor so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
(500 ml bottle: $1.99 at Wine Time in La Jolla, CA) Pale straw in color with a fair amount of haziness, but very few carbonation bubbles rising through the beer. The snow white, foamy head pours to over an inch and gradually settles to about half that after several minutes. Unfortunately, that’s the highlight with this beer. The nose is grainy, smelly, and alcoholic, like a bad, boozy beer. Sweet, apply, and alcoholic with a really nasty grainy flavor, and wow, the aftertaste is bitter and very alcoholic. Yuck, this is awful. Light bodied, but with a harshness like hard liquor. Uhh, this is just horrible, now let me carefully slide this lighter fluid drain pour past my gas stove without setting the place on fire. Please, someone give me a Budweiser to clean my palate!
