3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is clean sweet malt. Appearance is crystal clear light yellow with foamy head that retains well. Taste is clean malt forward. Hardly any hop presence but enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Palate is medium and malt sweetness lingers on the tongue. Overall its not bad. Kinda a slightly under attenuated American Lager. Drinkable, clean, decent beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m not sure which generous soul to thank for this gorgeous opportunity, but I think Homer321 is involved... so yeah thanks bro.
Pours a pale golden color with a very small but decently well retained head.
The aroma is that old lightly toasty & earthy thing while keeping it sweet and corny like a proper Malt lIkka.
The flavor is indeed corny and sweet, but it’s got a nice light herbal character to it. It’s very low on bitterness, but it’s also low on booziness. For what it is it’s pretty darned balanced.
Would pete again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Forty Ounce Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Pale yellow pour with a short lived, soapy white head. Sweet cereal grains and corn on the nose. A bit of apple and pear juice. Maybe a bit of sulfur. Flavor has kind of a grassy and grain husk bitterness. Some mild soap and apple. Lots of corn and cereal graininess. Not as bad as I remember, actually.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
40 oz. bottle shared by Frank because that’s the kind of thing Frank brings to a Grand Tasting at RBSG. This malted liquor pours a pale, clear gold with a white head. Looks like it does through the clear glass. Sweet malts, corn, sugar, and metal are the only four discernable notes for me. Then again, I lack the sophistication and taste to be allowed into any real country club. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty, metallic mouthfeel. On par for the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
If anyone can get this in 12 oz cans, let me know. I want them so, so bad. This is a great malt liquor. It is not too sweet and you can chug it and get fucked up.It pours pretty pale and a bit sweet but w/ actual hops to balance it. The carbonation is not to vigorous so as to hinder quick drinking. I’d put this in the same category as Mickey’s, definitely a classier form of malt.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thanks to UDBeerNut. Crystal clear pour. Nose is faint bread and unassuming. Taste is very smooth and chill no light struck. Slightly sweet but refreshing.
