1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle thanks to Drowland ! Pours a salmon pink color with some gaseous bubbles that fizzle out to the top. The nose is artificial sweetner, berry scented hairspray... the palate follows and reminds me of being a kid and choosing the berry favored fluoride....touches of styrofoam bite guard and faulty berry accents. Really glad to have shared this and not slayed this champwhale to my dome !

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Trade form drowland - thanks! Pours a slightly murky medium golden with a slight pink twinge to it. Aroma has an artificial candy-like aroma with some grain alcohol hanging around. Flavor is overly sweet and too artificial, almost as if somebody melted a lollipop and mixed it with grain alcohol. Nothing really redeeming about this. Boozy finish.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Oh wow, Dr. Owl hooked me up with an awesome box of malt likkas and this gem was in there. And....it literally looks like a gem. The pour is a gorgeous light pink orange color and clearer than glass that has just been windexed. The head on this was very thin and dissapated befre I even got a chance to comment on it. Based on the few residual bubbles that remain, I would guess it was a pinkish color. I could be wrong. The aroma is not as beautiful as the color. It has a slightly sugary aroma, with some faint fruity notes, and lots of corn. The taste is much of the same. Some fruity notes...I would say some apple, yeah, it tastes a little bit like a cider and actually pretty refreshing at first. I get a little bit of cherry as this is warming up drinking it out of my John Wakefield Brewing snifter. The finish is not surprising to any malt likka connoisseur - corn. Quite a bit of corn in the back end of this, but not overpowering and actually blends well with the fruitiness. The body is very light and crisp with quite a bit of carbonation. Overall, i think this is a pretty refreshing malt likka and would recommend it to any pool or beach goers. However, I would definitely wrap a koozie around this thing though because you don’t want to get caught drinking pink.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of Dr. Tuba. Pours a light pink with a white head that disappears immediately. Aroma of a fruit cocktail. Tastes like a wine cooler. Overall bit bad. I'd slam a few of these on a hot day.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle shared by Bobby. Pours a clear pink color, artificial. Aromas of sugar, some paint thinner, and alcohol. Tastes like sweetened grain alcohol that has been cut with water and corn syrup.

Another doctor owl rare wale. Fuck yeah. This smells like I’m coloring eggs as a child. The taste has a touch of it too, but it also tastes pink. I’m not jokin with these flavor descriptors. The Champale series certainly is an odd beast.

Thanks to Dr. Owl! Pale pink pour with a soda-like head. Kind of looks like Cherry 7-Up. Super sweet and sugary nose. Grassy, some yeast, and a bit strange overall. Taste is just like soda, for the most part. Almost cloying sweetness of sugar. Some corn, grass, and maybe a little bit of yeast. Was disappointed this didn’t taste more pink.

1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle from windmill Liquors. Pours this sickly pink color with a muted vomit nose on the nose. Tastes like pink lemonade with an awful indescribably bad finish. Ugh!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
5/3/12. 12oz bottle. Sickening pink/red pour with a fizzy pink head that’s gone fast. Horrid aroma of sweetness, corn, alcohol, and fusel. Tastes much the same - basically like the other champales but sweeter. Scroll past, my friends.
