mcberko (13500) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle sampled at 99 Bottles, pours pale golden. Basically just a stronger version of the pale lagers - bred, malt, corn and grass. Nothing special here.

FatPhil (13312) - 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 cardboardís back again, alas. Finish is a mixture of the tastes. Didnít 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 itís not the most delicate style under the sun, thatís for sure. The 5 for taste might be overly generous, but there really is plenty of beery taste in it, and itís not that rough at all, but the 7 overall is there to counter that generosity, as, hedonistically, itís not something Iíd go out of my way to drink (but it’s not bad, don’t get me wrong). If youíre gonna get wasted, this bottleís a good choice.

Tmoney99 (13253) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2005
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.

argo0 (13021) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2003
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%.

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

Benzai (12776) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle @ home, thanks to a colleague. Clear golden color, decent sized white head that diminishes rapidly. Smell malts, some sweetness and believe it or not peanuts! Taste isnít much better: malts, sweet, and again peanut-flavors. That does not belong in a beer. Fizzy carbonation, thin texture, alcohol clearly present, low body.

bu11zeye (12616) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2008
(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.

bierkoning (12190) - 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.

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.

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.
