1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml can, 8.0% a/v
The pour looks alright. nothing special, nothing crappy either. Smells like malt and corn.. and a bit of honey. Not bad taste for a malt liquor, i was actually dreading it, as its been awhile since ive drank the malt liquor. Hints at corn and the obvious malt. Not a bad finish. I just wouldnt want to imagine this beer warm!

This is a high test Bud. Pale, nice head but it faded. Dry finish. Doesn’t have any real taste - good or bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can (500ml). Poured pale clear oily gold with a an average diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma of corn syrup, cheap alcohol and plastic - nasty and sugary - "this is not a [beer] for dinking - this is a [beer] for laying down and avoiding." Taste is pretty foul and harsh - cheap alcohol that burns, nasty aftertaste too: I looked all over the can, but it really *doesn’t* say Steelback on it anywhere. Harsh, watery, burningly carbonated and alcoholic - speaking of alcoholics, this definitely qualifies as the beer equivalent of a <A HREF=http://www.bumwine.com/>BumWine. Foul - but it’ll getcha where ya need to be fast .

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from the beer store, 500ml. Pours into the glass, a gold body topped by a fizzy white cap, that leaves lots of lacing. Strong fusel and corn aromas, with some bready malt notes that are particularliy faint. Corn is present in the mouth. Sweet adjunct flavours overwhelm, but aren’t as offensive as first thought. Alcohol is present, but not so much as others of the distinction. Warming, due to the high ABV, and definitely not an easy drinker. Wouldn’t recommend.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Corn and plastic nose, light yellow, pours a fair sized white head. Taste is grainy corn. Throat burningly harsh. Yikes!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
As a malt liquor this isn’t half bad. A little white head dropped down into an ominous swirl of roaming the surface. The alcohol is hidden by some sweetness and something resembling malt. Drank it at room temperature once and it was quite tasty taking into account others of its ilk. Ahem, Bull Max.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Couleur cuivrée, faible mousse blanche concassée. Céréale, grain de la ferme et une tonne d ‘alcool en arômes. Maïs, céréales style shredded wheats et encore une surdose d’alcool en bouche. Épaisseur mince, texture aqueuse. Exécrable!!! Canette, LCBO, Mai 2005.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Gold colour. Almost no carbonation. Not a good look. Aroma shows some fusels and some bready malt notes. Flavour is heavy on the fusels - unbalanced and unpleasant. The occasion note of bready malt doesn’t do much to salvage. A two-note beer where the main note is kind of gross.
