1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light amber colour...looks too drinkable to be a malt liquor. Cidery aroma is a nice start, but the body is light, and after a faint ciderraunch note it gets very watery. Too bland - it just doesn't have that "kick you in the nuts" character that I look for in a good malt liquor.

Fuck yeah! Ride the stallion! Pale golden pour with a white head. Sugar and corn, some banana, bubblegum, grass, and paper. Light water and an overall grainy sweetness. The flavor is very sweet. Corn and grain, some banana, sugar, and bubblegum. A bit papery, some grass, and water on the finish.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
(Can, via Lumpy via Kevin) Pours a clear golden body with a small quickly diminishing white head. Nasal torching aroma of burnt plastic, sweet corn syrup, Peeps Easter candy, and a raunchy Taco Bueno garbage dumpster. I was asking myself, “what did I do to deserve this pleasure?...”. I had to work myself up some to dive in for a taste…but my drinking companion suggested it was not that bad. Found the flavor to be fairly bland with sweet malt, toasted grain, and bit of mineral with a somewhat dry finish.

Tall boy canned @ home picked up at Argonaut for $1.19 poured into my Avery Sour Fest snifter. Pours a clear orange appearance with a sizable white head that ultimately dissipates pretty quickly. A touch floral, cotton candy, grape drink aroma. Fairly smooth flavor although not the most exciting malt likka out there. Some grains, some caramel, slight lemon flavor. Smooth.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
40 oz bottle. Golden colour, thin whtie head. Light corny aroma with some thin pale malt as well. Some appley cidery notes as well. Surprisingly clean. Thin bodied and a little sweet, but I put the 40 back with nary a grimace. As it warms, it still isn’t horrible. Very bland, but it gets you where you want to go.

Thanks for the can Kevin, not sure what I did to you to deserve this. Clear apple juice body with soda-like brown head, quickly diminishing. Nose is putrid spoiled apple cider, intensely heavy with earthy, dirty acetone and drying paint. Taste is no different - rotting red apples and corn phenols. Thin, syrupy texture.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pale gold color with splotchy whitish head. Corny, wet cardboardy, and metallic aroma, plus strong ethanol. Tastes somewhat pale malty, very corny, with some off metallic and thiol notes. I didn’t finish the 40...not even close.
