1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Notes from May 31, 2010
51 oz. bottle from Woodmanís Madison, $1.99
Ar: Standard offensive malt liquor/strong lager aroma. Maybe a bit of honey to go along with the aroma of syrupy sweet barley/adjuncts.
Ap: Pours a urine yellow with a head that dissipates quickly. I guess it could look worse...
T: This is pretty bad. A bit of honey and not much else. Calling this "borderline offensive" would be a complement.
P: Overly-fizzy body which is a bit sticky.
This is a great gag gift if you can find it for two bucks. It gets a bonus point for the 51 oz. plastic bottle. Seriously, how can you produce and ship this stuff from St. Petersburg, Russia to Madison, Wisconsin for less than two bucks?

Oh yeah.. pop the top and get a whiff of the Steel Reserver, er, Olde English, or ... If this was advertised as a malt liquor and a fraction of the price and in a larger bottle, it would be rather decent. This oneís for the malt fans...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of honey and corn syrup. Pours clear gold with a decent soapy white head that leaves lacing. Flavor is syrupy sweet, not enough balance, very grainy and sweet. Has a nice alcohol kick, some Russian hooch for your gullet. Itís better than most American macros, at least itís neither a dirty fermentation nor dominated by adjunct grains. Cloyingly sweet, like a corn syrup bomb, donít think I will repeat.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A malt liquor that masks the alcohol very well. Slightly sweet with a hint of bitterness. Everything about it was average, except for mouthfeel, which was rather like having cotton in your mouth...go figrue that one out, I havenít. Put this in a 40 and market it as a high-class malt liquor import, which it is...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear orange color beer with a bubbling small white head that goes away immediately. Aroma is malty and grainy, with toasted and corn notes; alcohol is clearly felt. Flavor is very sweet but bitterness is also relevant. Body is oily and carbonation is low.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Clear straw color with small white head. Aromas of honey, grass, and alcohol. Flavors of straw, honey, alcohol. Medium body with tacky mouthfeel and sharp, moderate carbonation. Actually drinkable but not too much so.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From the bottle the color is light straw, the head is white and stays at a medium level, the aroma is non diScript, the taste is faint licorice and a little sweet, missing body. The finish is alcohol, the mouthfeel is thin.
