Pale yellow, small white head. Malty nose, light alcohol, kind of harsh but not unpleasant. Malty, a bit sweet, medium-bodied with a strong alcoholic touch. Anyhow tasty and clean European strong lager.

Pale straw colour with large bubbles. Slightly grainy, slighty alcoholic aroma. Flavour definintely leans towards alcohol, with just a little bit of graininess.

Piss yellow with a similar taste. Weird. Some sort of spice or poison in the nose. Slight bitterness. Avoid.

(50cl bottle, courtesy of Lumpy) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, mustiness, metallic, pesticide, and soap. Flavor of sweet malt, alcohol, and grain.

How funny -- I go all this time without rating a malt liquor, and the first one I happen to try isn't one of the Americans, but a Russian one. Crystal clear straw body with large white foam. Aroma is grainy, sweet, alcohol, light herbal. Taste is medium sweet, grainy, finishing alcohol and light herbal. Undercarbonated mouthfeel, fairly light body for 8%.

I’m usually not too picky with my beers, but for some reason this brew rubbed me the wrong way. Perhaps the bottle had been open too long - I’m not sure. Anyway, it was a bit sweet. And very strong. I can’t complain, though: I paid $1.49 for like 1 pint 7 oz or something. It was a cheap crunk. Russia forever!

Pretty much of a honey sweet corn aroma. Sturdy white head that left slight lacing. Bright gold color. Medium bodied, fizzy, almost creamy carbonation. It’s corny sweet, maybe a touch of honey. Instant heat. The hops must have gotten lost. There’s a light astringency, but the finish is not really dry. After awhile I can imagine there might have been some hop bitter.

16.9oz bottle-pours a foamy off white head and yellow/gold color. Aroma is sweet grain/light malt, faint alcohol. Taste is sweet grain/light malt-caramel, adjunct/corn characteristics, secondary spice hops, faint alcohol. OK carbonation. Thanks Joe for sharing.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
A: The pour is a very pale straw/yellow color with a thin layer of white foam. S: Smells damp and moldy with some possible fecal notes. Rotting vegetables and a bit time corn aroma. Sickly sweet and cloying. Lots of butter, because we couldn’t have a truly excellent beer without that. T: Cloying sugar and corn sugar. Oh goodness is this bad. Grape juice, cooked vegetables, butter, just awful. Some definite booze flavors, too. M: Pretty heavy, unnecessarily so, with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Jesus Christ.

Pale yellow, white head. Malty aroma. Very strong alcohol flavor, some malts but the alcohol kills everything else.
