1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Reviewed from notes.
Oh boy, malt liquor, okay, well uh... here we go.
This was poured into a chalice (haha, just kidding). This was poured into a pint glass most of the time I had it. Some times I tried it out of the bottle, but had to venture out of drinking it in some sort of glass just to get a look at it.
The appearance was a pure clear yellow color with no head. Fast rising carbonation was seen surfacing into nothing.
The smell, wow pure malty sweet alcohol with a grainy sort of cooked corn.
The taste was overly sweet through the alcohol and cooked corn.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, but that alcohol hits ya and boy oh boy, yeah, there’s not much sessionability about this one. Ya pound for the sake of getting it down (yikes), or you could drain pour like a lot of people I know do. The carbonation pretty much rapes your tongue and strips it of its "malt liquor" virginity (if this is your first one).
Overall, yes, this was my first malt liquor I’ve actually ever had and quite possibly my last, actually only for comparative notes, I did have some since then but will always remember this is the one that broke me in.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-17-12 -
Poured from can into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a lighter pure white head. The head fades fast giving way to some lacing.
Smell – Corn with the slightest bit of booze.
Taste – Sweet corn mixed with some breadiness up front. These tastes last through the middle and to the end, but lighten as the taste advances. Toward the end an alcohol flavor really becomes potent and lingers in the aftertaste. Along with the lingering of the alcohol there are flavors of metal and aldehydes. It starts out alright, but leaves one unpleasant aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with normal carbonation. Not much else to say.
Overall – Nothing I would do again. If you feel like a malt (which sometimes I do) I would not take this one. Go with something else.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Krampus can from UDBeernut, thanks!) Pours out a clear gold color with a large white head that slowly settles to a thin cap. Aroma smells of green apple, Sprite, and the interior of a dusty car in southern MN. Waves of nostalgia are elicited. Flavor is really sweet right up front, with a lot of corn and caramel apple like flavors, before it just drops away to a watery, lightly hoppy finish. Not really getting much in the way of booze here, so this is actually pretty easy to drink. Maybe too easy. Overall I don’t find this to be really all that offensive, but I wouldn’t go as far to say that I’d ever want to drink this again.

24oz can for Krampus via BoostIPA, yeah malt likka after VD seems appropriate, pours a clear golden with a large white head. Muted non-offensive corn and grain aroma. Tastes like the morning after belches from a night of drinking Bud Light, the after taste reminding me of stomach bile also after said night, thanks for that reminder.

Can share thanks to Homer321. Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color. Mild sweet corn adjunct character, light booze. More corny, sweet, malt and corn flavor. Very smooth. Tasty likka!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
24oz can in Seattle. Heavy, pale orange-yellow, big ugly head. Sweet heavy lager, big malt liquor (or similar to euro strong lager) flavor, ugly and gag-inducing. Slightly lighter body than most 8% ML / Ice beers I’ve found in the states. Not the worst I’ve had. Still ugly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can 24 oz
Aroma: sweet light, sugary , light on heat. For style quiet clean. Light hops noted. 6+
Apperance: clean golden , with medium plus bright white top. Sparse lace with rings.
Taste/Palate etc. medium bodied with oily sides. More of helles bock body than think rough malt likka. That side shows with rougher alcohol hints but still I must say it was quiet solid. You could fool this with many folks if relabeled as doppel bock. Decent body, clean alcohol heat in check and you will find hinted hop side. Highly under rated.
