This stuff smells like hot garbage, Jolly Rancher, nail polish remover and over-ripe apple. It is actually pretty remarkably dry and drinkable--for something that smells absolutely horrendous... So, I dunno, bonus points, I guess.

682ml can. Pee colored. This is vile garbage, lots of cooked veggies, vaginal dick marmite.

This shit is depraved. Pours apple juice gold with a tall, effervescent eggshell head that hangs out longer than expected but still settles to nothing with one spot of "lace." Nose involves green apple, cardboard, paint thinner, some ok malt notes (like a maibock), but they are quickly covered up by lots of weird candy fruit notes, like a bag of runts or some shit, all wrapped in some outboard motor fuel. A lotta sweet, kinda tart, sorta bitter. Heavy yet limp, viscous yet watery, somewhat drying, but I think its the high boost fuel numbing the tongue. The finish is green apple, rubber, and toasted cardboard. More ether comes out as it warms because, how is it not going to get warmer @ 24 oz? Iím about to finish it, so I guess it wasnít thaaat bad, but still, my eyes are bleeding and I think itís preventing oxygen from getting to my brain, so...boost, yíall!

High octane carbonated urine. Does the job! Fills me with the urge to take the bus downtown and contemplate the bottom of a paper bag while playing the saxophone. Your milage may vary.

pepsican (1489) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Had the 8 and had the 12, now a 10% version? Awesome. Reminds me of the Canadian malts. Yellow pour, almost thick looking, big white head. Huge alcohol and grape aroma. Corn, some veggies, a touch of vanilla and herbal hop notes. Quite sweet, big alcohol. Good carbonation.

Canned from Grocery Outlet. Nose of cider and alcohol. Strong fusel and sour apples up front. Harsh finish. Not good, but does its job.

24 oz. can pours a clear golden color with small diminishing white head and a little lacing. Aroma is full of sour apples, some corn, some booze. Taste is fruity sweet. Body is thin with average carbonation. Tastes worse as it warms up. Iíve had much worse, so this one serves its purpose.

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2014
24oz can of love pours with a crystal clear pale gold body that supports a decent nearly bright white head that faded to loose assortment of bubbles in about a minute. The aroma offers up sweet smelling fruity esters like pears and apples that are drizzled with white sugar. Behind the fruitiness, this beer is just above freezing right now, are mild chemical booze notes and a sliver of corn flakes. The taste starts watery and neutral and then the sweet light skinned fruity onslaught starts with honey covered pears and apples. To midway it picks up a non sweet note that must just be straight up booze or maybe Ö I donít know. Itís still friggin cold which is likely helping the flavor tremendously. Drink cold to slushy for that lack of flavor and 100% boost youíre looking for. I did.

Saved for rating 2600. Pours a clear pale yellow,with no head. Pretty standard cheap likka aroma. Corn, grains, green apple and cotton candy. Taste follows suit, super boozy in the finish. Maybe a little grape drink in there.

This beer is legendary. Iíll walk you through the rating. Aroma- Terrible. Smells like old sour apple juice and battery acid. Taste- Just as bad, at first itís semi-smooth like a Natty Daddy but finishes with a biting, sour, metallic taste. Lingers on the tongue for a bit and if you try to wash it away with a swig of H20 itíll make things worse. Palate- Leaves nothing good on the tongue, just a reminder of how cheap you really are. Overall- This beer is fantastic! In Cincinnati itís $1.19 for a 24 oz can of 10% greatness. Grab two and Iím headed for glory. It doesnít have to be smooth or drinkable; this is the real selling point of a High Gravity Lager - get trashed for pennies on the dollar. This bad boy is my go-to brew when Iím drinking after work.
