On Tap at the Brewpub in Hood River, OR Light golden and small white head. Actually quite good for a ML. Some slight spicy notes in the flavor. Cinnamon ?

[Bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry] Pours a hazy golden-orange with a spare diminishing white heads -- it looks flat. Aroma of cereal grain, caramel malt, apples and honey. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grain, alcohol, light fruit and some hops in the finish. Average bodied. Good for Malt Liquor but it’s too sweet for me.

2014-10-09. Dark yellow body is near headless. Aroma of lightly cereally pale malt. Moderate alcohol. Flavour is similar cereal pale malt , moderate alcohol. Very light fruit. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent and surprisingly drinkable but not very exciting. Bottle shared by HogTownHarry

bottle. clear gold with a small white head. fruity, almost tropical, and very clean aroma. flavor is sweet with honey and candy. some pineapple candy flavors. full bodied and slightly syrupy. grassy and tropical hop notes. fermented out pretty clean, just a tad on the sweet side...but honestly one of the best malt liquors i remember drinking.

"This was good for what it was. A fun one off. But why make a $4 22 oz Malt Liquor? Not really the craft brewer’s market, but whatever. I tried it once. A little corny and grainy in flavor and feel with more malt sweetness and a hint of metal than hops, which were slight and grassy. Not bad, but nothing I need to revisit."

Let’s be real here. It’s a good malt liquor but it’s still a malt liquor, not some style bending masterpiece like Head Banger was. Corn, touch metallic, sweet with a hint of black pepper notes. Consumed in a brown bag.

Amber with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with a touch of cheap bourbon. Flavor is very malty with a bit of sweetness. Kind of like a full bodied malt liquor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared at Proof. Malt liquor definitely not my thing, so no idea how this rates within the style. Gold pour, small white head. Aroma is corn. Tastes are corn, honey, gasoline (I assume). Not for me. 4.6

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Proof. Deep orange pour with a bubbly white head. Very fruity aroma, peaches, caramel malts and bread. Sweet maltiness in the flavor with peach and apricot fruitiness, definitely not like all the other malt liquors and pretty good.

Bright apricot ale aroma - odd. Cloudy, orange-gold, thin white head; bomber with a good label. Big dichotamy between the aroma and the flavor. Does not smell like malt liquor, but definitely tastes likee malt liquor. A bit tangy, low to medium malting, starchy malt. Pretty good. Slightly mouthy.
