This is a strong beer/malt liquor in the vein of Molson Brador. It’ll knock you on your arse in no time. I love this beer.

Pours clear gold with a white head. Sweet mild aroma. Flavor is nice. Mild, slightly sweet with a nice grassy finish. Alcohol is hidden very well. A little watery with nice carbination. Very simple but very enjoyable.

This beer has some character; I am relatively convinced that this beer is indeed ’brewed with passion’. Brok goes down easy. The hop exerts itself enough for my liking,and the fruity/grassy flavour doesn’t tire on you, nor is their any hint of alcohol.

Cartoonkhaki (1252) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2002
Malty with a very slight alcohol flavour in the back. The rest of the beer waters that down alot which creates a nice balance. There really isn’t much of an aroma and it has a nice clean gold colour.

PorterPounder (7333) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Nice cloudy appearance remminiscent of a Belgian Ale - little to no head with just a tad bit of lacing. Alcohol is evident - but not overpowering like you would find in an American Malt Liquor. Bit of a sweet malty flavor, nothing really jumps out unusual about it. Decent mouthfeel - goes down smooth despite the high ABV. More character than your normal Polish Lager - but nothing to write home about it.

Aurelius (5070) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Good bottle with the embossed logo, gold lager with beady white head. The higher ABV is well-covered. Lightly malty with an underlying Saaz and alcohol burn. Lightly sweet and tart fizzy finish.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Dark yellow colour, with a light white head - persistent. Light subtle scent with hints of grainy malt. Taste has malty depth and has a slightly sweet dominence. The alcohol content is not dominent in the taste.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Appearance: a clear, pale yellow, with a small, but resilient white head that maintains a thin ring. Aroma: sweetness incarnate, notes of honey and lemon, a bit syrupy and candyish, and still containing vegetable, herbal hints, as well. Body is light and airy, finish short, taste subdued, to speak politely. Bright, sweet honeyish flavor rings through, though, and actually, this flavor profile becomes more pronounced as we go...super-sweet, extra-strong. I hadn’t realized it was 7.8%, and started wondering if it was supposed to be a blonde doppelbock. Or is it a "malt liquor"? A nice, tasty thirst quencher, but as we down the drink, the alcohol becomes more and more evident, the flavor, as it is, gives way to the sweetness and strength, and it becomes warmer and less delicious as we go along. This is a beer that worked at the front, but the deception employed at the start becomes it’s undoing, as it fails to fulfill any brighter promise, than a sweet, strong device for deadening brain waves.
