Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is light malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (soap), with hints of DMS and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, moderately acidic. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Smells bad, too sweet, sour finish, more alcohol than it can elegantly bear, etc.

Smell is like a bad pilsener; hoppy and skunky. Initially large head, disappears quickly. Clear golden colour. taste is pilsenerlike, but more sweet and more malts, bit fruity perhaps. Alchololic, moderate bitter palate.

Ungstrup (32942) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2003
A very light yellow beer with almost no head. A light sweet aroma. The flavor is strong alcohol right from the beginning with a pretty sweet experience afterward and then ending suddenly - no bitterness to wrap of the flavor. Not a very pleasant example of a Barley Wine/Malt Liquor.

From the Sharp Edge European Beerfest: They didn't say this was malt liquor, but I'm not overally suprised.

500ml bottle. Light, grainy, sweet malty aroma, some faintly sour yeastiness and overreaching vegetable sweetness. Light golden yellow color with a very slight head. Lightly bitter and grainy up front, turning sweeter with a bit of a harsh and strange chemical finish. Dull, watery palate, medium-full bodied. This beer’s label is simply designated "pale beer", therefore I suppose I was hoping for more of a European Strong style and less of a Malt Liquor. So it goes.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Pours a pale golden color with a whipped egg white head that mostly dissipates, though it does leave a bit of lacing on the glass. Not much aroma, bit of sweet corn, I suppose. Flavor was way too corn syrupy for me. I think I would prefer to get hammered on Mickey’s than this.

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.

Clear corn colored. Nice head. Aroma of finger nail polish and flowers. Very sweet and syrupy. Some cardboard and corn flakes in the flavor mingled with maltiness. Foul brew.

High alcohol content (8%), which is good, because it deadens that taste buds that much more quickly. Not quickly enough, though, for a very metallic finish to come through. Came real close to pouring this one out, and I NEVER do that.

Pours yellow with little head. Very sweet, but not in a good way. Smells like a bar floor. Actually had the Extra Lager but it isn’t on the list
