1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Basically a run of the mill malt liquor. Corny, grainy, pissy, and stank. Too many of these would put a Big Hurt on my head the next morning. Not Good....

Frank Thomas is the man.
This beer cost $8 for a 12 pack.
Taste is above average given the particular style.
I appreciate frank Thomas.
I appreciate this beer.
It costs relatively the same as ice house. And has a decent taste which surpasses many domestic beers of this particular style.
Off the nose. Lemony citrus. Moderate carbonation.
I can mow the lawn and slam down 3 of these easy.
7%abv is masked beautifully.
The can says its a lager and should be reviewed as one.
It's insulting and racist that this beverage is considered a malt liquor on this review board.
I rate this higher than founders all day ipa and three floyds jinx proof.

New Beer Distributors, NYC 12oz ($2): Pours orange with a malt liquor head. Aroma is malt liquor adjuncts. Taste is malt liquor booziness. I would rather drink Olde English.

On tap @ GABF. Golden pour with a small white head. Corn, grain, and sugar on the nose. Some apple juice and banana aromas. Flavor is just really sweet. Sugar, corn, and apple juice. Banana, grain/cereal, and a touch of water. No real alcohol notes, at least.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Conyers, Ga. - Sigman Bottle Shop - 24 oz can. Light golden pour, puffy, snow white head with a hint of lacing. Aroma is where this one really goes south - smells like soggy fruity pebbles and some kind of whey protein drink. Flavor has some of that same whey essence, a touch of fruity pebbles, some boozy grain alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is metallic and industrial. Could be a hit in the ’hood, but outside of that, pretty much a drainpour. Big hurt must refer to the feeling in my gut if I was to finish the whole 24 oz. can.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Pours an almost crystal clear golden yellow, with a very quickly dissipating “head” and visible bubbles forming on the bottom of the glass that have absolutely no problem escaping up to the surface. The aroma is not very inviting at first, even at fridge temperature, but it becomes less and less inviting as it warms, to the point of becoming downright unpleasant once it reaches room temperature. Some light sweet apple notes, varied grains, and that ubiquitous presence of generic corny adjuncts that always accompanies even the most tolerable malt liquors. The beer is crisp and bubbly on the palate. Not quite over carbonated, but maybe more so than it needs to be. Either way, pretty typical carbonation for the style. The flavor follows the aroma. Not especially offensive at first, mostly due to the cold temperature, but as it warms, it quickly deteriorates into a relatively sweet corny mess. Some light grainy and green apple notes accompany the generic corny adjuncts. As far as malt liquors go, this one is pretty run-of-the-mill. Like most, it’s relatively drinkable when it’s fresh out of the fridge, but gets pretty rotten as it warms up. Lastly, FRANK THOMAS MY MAIN MAN: BRO, YOU ARE THE BIG HURT. NOT THIS FUCKEN BEER. IF YOU NEED A LAWYER TO SUE THESE FUCKS FOR USING YOUR NAME YOU GIVE OL B-LIPP A PHONE CALL, BUDDY.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear golden with white head. Smells of mid-90s MVP. And apple jolly ranchers. Maybe some banana too. Taste of vague corn, alcohol, and some rice. Some weird smoky element here too. Finishes sweet.

Of the mouth. Big hurt of the mouth.
It hurts. Literally. The worst malt liquor of these five we’ve drank.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted from a 12oz. can. It poured a clear golden color with plentiful carbonation and a thin, bubbly, white head. Has a slight malt aroma. It’s a bland tasting malt liquor with only two redeeming qualities:
1.) 50˘ a can 2.) 7% abv.
As a Cubs fan I don’t have much love for the White Soxs, but Frank Thomas is one of the greatest hitters I have ever had the pleasure to watch. As much as I appreciate this phenomenal contact hitter, this effort is a big wiff.
