2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Backlogged rating: Corny and grainy malts with a moderate alcohol presence throughout. The mouthfeel is actually quite nice, lively and sharp with a medium booze warming. Not much depth or all that exciting.

sampled at RBSG 2010 - Pours yellow and smells of grainy malt. The flavor is smooth sweet corn. Itís light bodied and itís okay. Barely. Iím not sold on craft breweries bothering with this style.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the brewpub.
First off, what a mess! This is not very good. A medium gold that is totally clear with a light tan head, not much retention or lacing...Totally dead aroma, only the lightest hint of honey...The taste is god awful garbage, all alcohol and skunk, just grainy alcohol.
Avoid this, even if its in a sampler, even if youíre a ticker like me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at brewpub. Barley malt and fusel alcohol aroma aroma with a hint of grass. Golden yellow color with small head. Sweet barley malt flavor with bitter alcohol flavor. Okay but only a bit better than your typical cheap crap malt liquor.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sampler at FSRB. well, it mimics the character of commercial malt liquors very well, and thatís the drawback. Yellow color and fusel alcohol smell. I smell lots of corn sweetening, too. Yet, the taste is not timid about showing its alcohol, a patch over the usual canned rotgut. That alcohol at least warms me instead of burning. Helped out by a soda carbonation mouthfeel. At least I donít feel like Iím developing a hangover already.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is sweet and corny, but clean and inoffensive with notes of grain, sweet bread, and light earthy hops. Pours golden with a creamy head and nice visible bubbles. THe flavor is sweet and grainy with a good deal of corn, some light fruitiness and a light bitterness in the finish. A solid malt liquor.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the brewpub bar with a clear, golden hue, with bubbly silk to the head foam, and some good, curtainy lacing that broke up, but remained clingy as the liquid lowered. The aroma was very light, almost imperceptible, but with a little warmth, presented light alcohol and a little corn. The flavor was light grain, a hint of sweetness, subdued hop bitterness, and warming alcohol. Not bad, but I think that I was having some Colt-45 or Schlitz flashback, so I probably wouldnít order it again.
