1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.2 oz bottle pours a clear pale golden color with tiny white head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet apples and grape bubblegum. Taste is sweet all the way through. Thankfully there’s no corn, skunkiness, or cardboard present. Body is light and carbonation is as fizzy as cheap champagne. Not horrible at all. It makes me want to try to mix this with Ripple to make Fred Sanford’s favorite concoction: Champipple.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared at the RBSG presidential suite for malt liquor night. Pours a pale, clear gold with a white ring for a head. Someone must have been drinking Sprite when inspiration struck: "I know, I’ll drop a handful of Skittles in!" And when that worked, they were inspired further: "We could brew this!" And lo, Champale Golden was birthed. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, sweet mouthfeel. Seems like a joke.

We’re gonna die when the sun comes up
We’ll drink until we drop
My blood’s 100 proof
We’re gonna stumble, twist and crawl
99 bottles of beer on the wall
I’d rather drink than fuck
Beer that advertises it being chapagne like but this is the total opposite. Gold pour, bum sack of death.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big clear bottle, thanks to homer321 for sharing. Minimal head. Tons of sweet golden apple. Not bad, but WTF? unexpected. Kind of extracty but pretty good in a candy kind of way. Moderate sweet kind of dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. OK stuff, surprisingly. Solid big apple on it.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle @ the pussy palace. Pours a Gazza gold ale appearance with a thin head. Spritzy apple, smarties candy aroma. Juicy sweet pear, candy flavor. Not a malt liquor, Moran’s.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I don’t know what motherfuck this stuff is even made of. It tastes exactly like Smarties candies. It is only a little sweet though which makes it more drinkable than I was expecting but still is pretty much just fruity alcohol water. Spritzy carbonation is kinda nice though and I could honestly think of worse things to get drunk on.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
12oz bottle from Krampus via BoostIPA, pours a clear golden with a small white head. I can hardly describe the horrid sweet smell. It reminds me of disposable diapers and baby wipes (not yet soiled, saved that for the taste). Or maybe after a Highlife has sat out opened in the sun for a week. Maybe artificial apples and coconut? Nah, I’d say the blue water in portable toilets. Oh my god this is bad, it tastes like someone squeezed garbage juice from a low budget carnival trash can. You know a nice mix of rotting cotton candy, melted snow cones, corn dogs, funnel cakes 100 degree heat and flies. One sip and done, worst beer I’ve ever touched to my lips.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of drowland. Poured into a snifter. A ton of apple and grape in the nose. Sweet flavor, but just short of diabetes sweet. No skunkiness, no corn. This is good stuff. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Thanks Dr. Tubes.
