3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I gave my appearance rating based on packaging because I drank it out of the bottle, inside the paper bag. The aroma is instantly corn and malt sweetness. Nothing else going on in the aroma. Flavor is much more complex than I expected. Lots of good malt flavors, some dried fruits, sweet caramel and sugar. Body is nice, too -- good and thick, more like a big German lager than a Steel Reserve 211. I gave it such a high overall rating because I had such a good time with it -- my girlfriend, two other friends and I passed it around a campfire in Pennsylvania the night before the Harrisburg Brewfest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I know it is stupid... but this is one of my long time whales... Tiklmelmo hooked me up with 2!! Jason is a stellar trader for sure... This is from the 2nd release in 2010.
This has been in my fridge since I received it... I cracked it to share with my brother and a work buddy who claims to be a "Malt Licka" aficionado.. This was the best of the bunch.
Pours clear dark gold on initial pours... but later they were sorta hazy golden... no lacing... short lasting white head.
Nose is clean maltiness... something that I guess is corn... smells like some bigger micro cream ales Iíve had over the years....
Flavor has a very lite splash of citrus/lighter floral hops that let you know this is not your every day drunk punch... pale malts and some corny goodness (i think) .... some booze for sure just to brand the style into your brain.
Again.. the body and carbonation are akin to a bigger cream ale... medium with a lite yet frothy carbonation.. definitely interesting.

Woody almost barrel aroma. Very sweet Not much corn as expected per the style. Sweet finish. Cloudy appearance. As a respected member of the craft beer community I would expect DFH to take their malt liquors more seriously.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A yellow/ golden beer with a corn, malt and grain aroma. Malty sweet taste with that feels syrupy. It was interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle shared (reluctantly) by justin at dakís on 1/2/11.
pours hazy and the same color as the big round table at papago.
it smells like tortillas...hmm. there are also notes of orange, lemon, vanilla, peach, mangosteens, straw, pale malt, peppery spice and honey in the aroma.
the flavor is the same along with some apple juice. it is not too sweet and quite well done. iím not a huge dfh fan but this is a style iíd think they could do well with... 8/4/8/4/16+

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malt Liquor Appreciation Day 2011; 40 oz. bottle thanks to Alex (I think); kick ass presentation for sure w/ the bag and stamp; Iíll be stepping it up a notch when I bottle my own malt liquor in corked and caged 750ís and delivered in paper bags; take that Sam!! Pours dark orange and slightly cloudy with huge foamy white head; aromas of stale malt, dry honey and rice; very lively nose from the eggy head; flavor-wise it fails to deliver on the promising nose; stale honey, dry cereal grains; better than the Peopleís PInt craft version but this ainít no Country Club!!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice amount of corn in the nose. Sweet, somewhat fruity as well as with hints of alcohol and earthy hop notes. Pours golden orange, decent head, low retention. The flavor is nice and corny throughout, sweet but not cloying, little hop notes in the finish. A touch of alcohol at 7% which is interesting. Well done and enjoyable.
