2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can on the bus during RBSG as we went from Dark Horse to Bells. This fiendish treat was courtesy of the nefarious Joe McPhee. Pours a clear yellow gold with a thin white head. Smells like those orange circus peanuts and apples. Tastes of sweet corn, with some light alcohol present. Warm, toast and sweetness. Finishes with a light bitterness and some sweet apple. Really though this would be far worse.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can on the RBSG Bus. May a plague of locusts torment whomsoever it was that inflicted this upon us. Pours clear yellow, big foamy head, no lacing to speak of. Smells like bananas and a chemistry experiment gone horribly awry. Tastes like the lamentation of my tastebuds. Less horrible than Molson Canadian and Rani Lager, so bonus points there!

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours a very clearpale amber with a thin white head that fades to a ring quickly and holds. Aroma is overripe fruit, solvents, fusel, lots of Pla Doh, and sweet fermenting corn. Flavor is suprisingly weak-probably a good thing for a high gravity malt liquor, corn, alcohol, sweet overripe fruit, like fruit salad made of stuff that was almost starting to rot, lettuce, generic cough drops, luckily all very faint. Palate is medium to heavy body, oily and dry at the same time and has a light, but sharp carbonation. Not very good at all, really not very good. Gross. Edit: I forgot to mention that it probably would have scored quite a bit higher (compared to the "1" I gave it anyway) if it hadn’t made me shudder upon my first drink, and given me near instantaneous gut rot.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a bright clear golden. Fairly thick white head quickly diminishes with just a thin coat remaining sustained by active carbonation. Off sweet corn aroma. Overly sweet malt and corn taste, green apples, as well as a sourness similar to a bad batch of home brew. Taste does not easily leave the mouth after the swallow. Aftertaste is medicinal. Alcohol warmth noticable. Not the worst ML I’ve ever had, but still an ML.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Why Dave why do you insist on doing this to me.
A: Pours a pale yellow with a foamy head. No lace.
S: Aromas of corn, bread, and a cat’s litter box.
T: Sweet corn, cane sugar, floor stripper.
M: Light, thin, fizzy.
D: Would rather drink what’s in the cat’s litter box.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
A: The pour is crystal clear and very, very pale yellow in color. The head is initially white and fluffy, but disappears almost as quickly as it arrived.
S: The nose is dominated by a sweet, airy rice aroma. There’s a touch of grain sweetness and a fair amount of skunk.
T: I didn’t think the flavor could get much worse than the nose, but somehow, it did. This one is all rice, corn, and booze. Just awful.
M: Very, very light body. The carbonation is fairly high, but it doesn’t do much to help out the watery beer.
D: One of the most godawful things I’ve put in my mouth. Thanks Jacob and Jer for sharing this one...very generous.
