3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle bought in March 2011 (price check: $9 at Famous Liquors, Lombard). It’s time! Pours at first like any other macro pale lager. Once the foam starts to settle, I can see the golden beer color is just a little hazy, Head pours pretty puffy over the rim of my narrow pilsener glass. Smell starts off with some citrusy hops, in fact, lime was the first thing I thought of, but sucking on the foam offers some Saaz as well. Finally getting into the beer itself, and I’m just saying what the hell. Malt is nice and thick, and surely all barley malt. Unabashedly teeming with alcohol. Hops have pretty much mellowed down in the palate, but when malts are this strong, I just think of a strong IPA that matches. I would like to have compared this to the Red White & Blue Malt Liquor, but I recall the other just tasted like strong beer. This is an imperially beastly brew indeed.
