3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours a clear golden color with lots of streaming bubbles and a disappearing white head. The aroma is a bit sweet with malt and honey. Some surprising citrus hop notes, but very minor. More apple and pear. The flavor is pretty nice with some floral and citrus hops balanced by a fruity and honey malt body. Alcohol is felt near the finish. Kind of sweet in the finish, really with a touch of toasted malt. Pretty darn drinkable for an 8% malt liquor. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle( 1P 6FL OZ): clear deep straw with a very poor head. Lifted malt, apples, floral, simple malty nose. Slightly sweet. Not sour and with low to medium bitterness. Slippery and fat. Apricot and honeysuckle. Like Viognier. Medium weight and length. Ok. Clean. None of the horrible full sail aromatics I’ve noticed in their other beers I’ve tasted.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a typical clear yellow with a thick but effervescent white head. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity, crisp but unremarkable. Flavor is more fruity than malty, somewhat sweet but not cloying, not quite bold but better than what the aroma promises. Texture is smooth, but lacking in fizz or viscosity. OK, not so hot, but I am more of a stoutie; a lager lover should give it a fairer shake.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a translucent gold with a wispy white head of foam. The head doesn’t stick around long. The aroma has dry grassy notes with a cream corn background. Maybe some ginger peaking through as well. Taste is sweet and corny with a dry, grainy finish. Medium carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. Pretty good for style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think this is a different beer than the Brewers Share Malt Liquor. Sampled on 11/4/2013. This Imperial Lager/pilsner pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grainy, fruity and sweet with a touch of orange. A medium bodied Imperial Lager. The malts are cereal, grainy, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and floral. Nice carbonation. It sort of reminds me of a very amped up Henry Weinhards PR with better ingredients. Nicely balanced. Touch of alcohol at the finish. Very drinkable. Crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with some orange and orange peel.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a hazy orange color. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor is also very sweet but not like a typical likka. No notable corn adjuncts but more of a malt extract and very medicinal flavor. I do not like this. The medicinal flavor kills this.
