Thanks to Dave for sending this my way. Clear golden pour with a white head. Smells like lemon, plastic, and sweet malt. Apple juice, sugar, and some booze. The flavor is sweet and a bit boozy. Apple juice, malt, sugar, and some fruit. A touch of lemon, plastic, and rubber.

Nice gold pour, white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some light corn notes(not in a bad way). Flavor is sweet, smooth and man they did a great job masking the ABV!

Bottle @ home, thanks to Ibrew2or3. Thanks Dave! Pours a hazy dark golden appearance with an off white head. Creamed corn, plastic, cabbage, cat litter, paper aroma. Tangy, sightly metallic, chewy grainy, candy corn, minimal grape drank, sweet flavor. Not my favorite but god damn, I love seeing craft malt likkas, bro.

355mL thanks to the LA crew. Thanks to womencantsail perhaps? Pours clear orange. Medium white foam with good retention. Nose is perfumey, spice medley, orange peel. Taste is buttery, apple heavy, paper, and some celery. Palate is seltzery, watery. Strange.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
$10 four pack of 12oz bottles picked up at Sun Devil Liquors. It pours with a dull clear copper body with some gold hues and a short lived weak ass near white head (now we’re talking malt liquor). The aroma delivers up modest smooth pear and ripe honey drenched green apples and not too much else. The taste is sweet with ripe red apple like fruity esters that pull into a sense of sugary sweet malts and then more sweet fruity esters into the finish. This somehow keeps the sweetness in check and I’m not sure how. I few more sips and a light semi sweet raisin note begins to be noticed that help balance out the sweetness.

Bottle; poured a clear ruddy gold/yellow with a smallish white head. Alot of carbonation streams. Aroma was sweet and bready. Flavor really masked the abv. Sweet and bready with some fruity notes. Not that bad and quite drinkable.

Bottle from Total Wine Glendale. pours golden with a thin white head. leaves a lot of sticky lacing in the glass. slightly sweet on the nose. Tastes like corn. Finishes clean and hides the liquor well. A decent tasting malt liquor seems to defeat the purpose of the style.
