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%.

Bottle. Light amber hue with a medium white head that diminished quickly. Small aroma. Light to medium body. Small flavor with sweet malt with a small alcohol bite at the finish. Below average beer and malt liquor.

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.

Week head, bitter flavour, and a surprice citrus-finish. I was positively surpriced of this beer.

bierkoning (11044) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2002
Only faint malty and hoppy aroma. Alocoholic, bit bitter and herbal. Thin for such a high alocohol lager. The dark Baltika beers are much better.

FatPhil (10715) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2008
1.5L bottle (Little Russian booze shop, Tallinn)
Rich straw colour, brief head. First tasting, very little aroma at all. Fleeting taste of unbleached cardboard, then massive, and I mean utterly massive, wave of fruity esters - peach and apple. Then the booze comes over, almost vodka-ey in its direction and potency. Once that subsides, the cardboard’s back again, alas. Finish is a mixture of the tastes. Didn’t finish the bottle (well, would you?), so revisited the next morning. More aroma, but still rather nondescript. Esters are less outrageously prominent, and not quite so cardboardy or boozy either (recently brushed my teeth, though). Per style, this is pretty competent, but it’s not the most delicate style under the sun, that’s for sure. The 5 for taste might be overly generous, but there really is plenty of beery taste in it, and it’s not that rough at all, but the 7 overall is there to counter that generosity, as, hedonistically, it’s not something I’d go out of my way to drink (but it’s not bad, don’t get me wrong). If you’re gonna get wasted, this bottle’s a good choice.

BeerandBlues2 (10713) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with spotty lacing. Aroma is grain, corn, and straw malt, light perfume and vegetable notes. Flavor is malty with faint hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Downtown Charlottesville. Very light and pale orangish yellow with a huge head, but little lacing or retention. Bitter, citrus and grassy aroma. This beer is freaking sweet... high fructose corn syrup kinda sweet. I guess the maltose syrup listed in the ingredients on the bottle is responsible for that. Cloying and overwhelming. Bleh.

Bov (10377) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 30, 2007
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear and pale golden-yellow colour with a chaotic white foam; aroma of grilled almonds and solvant, some hints of pear too; thick and very sweet, full-bodied, long malty sweetish finish with fruity and alcoholic notes - awful
