2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Supercan. I can’t believe I forgot to include this in the malt liquor taste-off while camping a couple weekends back! This was quite a surprise. To begin with, it poured brown, and had a definite faint berry aroma.The paalte was sweet, as expected, but again it was unanimously agreed that there was a jammy berry fruit character in this, not dominating, but not exactly subtle either. Finish was short and dry. Maybe it’s because the Colt 45 was SO bad, but this was actually drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can. Pours amber/red, light tan rocky head. Aroma is sweet and caramel-like with a trace of alcohol beneath it. Sweet flavour, more caramel. Finishes with moderated alcohol and lingering sweetness. Medium sticky body, medium tingly carbonation. I did not mind this, not bad for a malt liquor, but that’s not really saying much is it?

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Surprisingly drinkable. It has a long list of faults including weird sweetness, somewhat unpleasant chemical taste, BUT, its actually not terrible. Its not a taste to enjoy but its tolerable for getting boozed.
