2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks, Shawn! Pours a clear golden color with a white head. The nose is kind of bland and watery. Sweet grain and sugar is certainly there, though. A bit of corn, grape, and banana as it sits in the glass for a little while. The flavor is sweet and surprisingly fruity. Banana, grape, and apple notes. Plenty of sugar, some corn, and a general graininess. Surprisingly not bad.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned @ home, courtesy of blackipa. Fucken a bro, bro. Pours a clear golden appearance with a somewhat foamy, off white head. Slight green apple, a bit citrusy, bubbly carbonated, light grape aroma. Soft mouth feel. Sweet grape jolly rancher, a bit bready, corn flavor. A fine malt liquor and solid swill. Drinks pretty damn good.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
24oz can thanks to BlackIPA! Served in Tired Hands stemware. Pours a clear golden, deeper. Medium, white foam with weak retention and webby lace. Nose is salted tomato, white grape juice, some bizarre esters Iím assuming are common in this rare style. Vegetal certainly. Taste is buttery, papery, lots of red apples. Not really boozy. Decent taste. Nose is awful. V8 juice perhaps. Aftertaste pretty ripe, harsh. Difficult to enjoy especially in this quantity. After just a few sips Iím feeling nauseous and my stomach is churning. I feel seasick. Fiancť rating :2.3

Can shared at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of strong grassy hops, corn, caramel malts. The taste is grassy hops, corn, mild grain. Medium bodied, slightly tart, fairly smooth. Not bad.

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.

4/26/13. 24oz can I found randomly in Tallahassee. Stoked to stumble upon this rar 8% loon. This tastes like complete garbage, just like the 10% version, but less strong, so whatís the point?

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can. Pours a clear gold body with a fizzy white head that actually had pretty nice retention due to the vigorous carbonation. The aroma is the usual Malt Liquor corn syrup and vegetal mixture that one can expect. The flavor is about on par with the aroma, lots and lots of corn with some cooked vegetable and a minimal shot of alcohol on the finish. Medium bodied with a sticky and clingy finish. Lots of fizzy carbonation that seems to accent the corn syrup flavor somehow. Pretty gruesome even at a buck fiddy

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pretty rough stuff. As others have noted, ridden with vegetal notes. Something of cooked peas, buttered corn. Also a savory component, really strange and unlike anything Iíve ever had in a beer. Iíve never ever compared beer to urine in any review Iíve ever written, it is a cliche, but for the first time Iím tempted here.

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 Iíve found in the states. Not the worst Iíve had. Still ugly.
