3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour with a small white head. Pretty authentic malt liquor aroma here. Sweet grain, a bit of malt, apple juice, and corn sugar. Quite a bit more hoppy than most, though. A bit citrusy even. Sweet corn sugar, apple, grain, and bread. A hint of alcohol, mild pears, and some hints of citrus. Pretty nice hop character, too.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber gold with a big frothy white head and champagne bubbles. Aroma is heavy malt with some noble/earthy hop. Med body. Frothy carb. Flavor is heavy malt, tends to be a bit heavy on sweet, but there’s some earthy/herby hop that tends to cut that way down. It might fairly be described as trying to head towards dry, and there is some bitter. Way better that what’s in most of those 24 oz cans.

Bottle. Poured dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Better then my expectations.

A murky amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, overly sweet fruity maple syrup and light resinous character, OK. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light grassy hops, light licorice, so-so. Bottle at 2014 Ottawa Xmas gathering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to BlackIPA for this wale. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with a small cream colored head. Apple juice, corn, vanilla, sweet candy aroma. A bit cloying, candy corn, corny, somewhat spicy, juicy fruity flavor. Pretty solid malt liquor but this is no Molson Dry 7.5.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Full Sail in Hood River. Clear gold with a small white head. Nose is marginally skunky diesel-scented pils malt with a sweeter note of honeyed grains. Mostly clean, appropriately syrupy and thick, and overall pretty good for malt liquor, which means its just above drinkable overall. Malt Liquor rating #10. Eisbock and Kristalweizen left to complete 10 ratings each.
