Poured dark golden in color with a small white quickly diminishing head. Chunkies everywhere floating around. Reminds me of that drink orbitz, but not quite that bad, and colorful. Aroma of sweet corn. Taste of corn meal, a bit yeasty, and a sweet malt base. Not as bad as I was expecting. Thanks Hopdog for sharing.

I had this one sitting in the back of the cellar just aching to be opened for a ’special’ occasion. Glad to share it for Eric’s #2,700. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized white head. Lots of suspended floaters. Aromas of yeast, lighter corn, and caramel. Hmmm, not that bad for a Malt Liquor. Tastes of caramel, corn, grains, and vanilla. The corn was there, but not as nasty as I find it in most malt liquors. I drank my whole glass of this one!

Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted dough, vanilla, and corn. Taste of more toffee, caramel, and corn, bit the alcohol was well hidden, and the usual nasty, metallic, corniness was not present... as it usually it is malt liquors.

Thanks to hopdog for this one...last rating 7/16/06 we are bringing this one back from the dead! Pours a hazy golden orange with a bunch of small floaties and a medium creamy bubbly lightly lacing head. Aroma of caramel corn, alcohol, vanilla notes, touch of citrus, floral notes...for a malt liquor that is over two years old not horrible. Flavor was on the lighter side, some citrus, grainy notes, hints of corn, kind of dry and probably the best Malt Liquor I have ever had.

Bottle: Had a malt aroma for the most part along with some bitterness. Cloudy orange body with white head that went flat. Had a citrus lemon bitterness to the flavor. Different than othe malt liquers this one was almost like a pilsner. Smooth and refreshing at leat after a 3hr flight.

Bottle poured a cloudy orange with no head Aroma is corn, malt,hops and alcohol. Flavor is fruits and citrus with a warming alcohol finish. Not bad..got better as it warmed up, or maybe it was me warming up.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 24, 2006
Blind rating. Pours cloudy deep yellow with a patchy and edgy white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is hoppy, honeyed malt and yeast (dough) with floral notes. Heavily bitter and a burning acidity, alcohol notes, sourness at the end. Warm and fizzy, burpy and slightly dry palate.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2006
Hazy orange. Chewy texture with some alcohol burn. Malts were grainy and a little nutty. Hops were citric, flowery and bitter. Drying finish. Not a bad malt liquor.

Beer pours a clear, medium gold with a small, white, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with heavy notes of husky toasted grain; heavy miscellaneous notes of honey and light notes of corn. The flavor is sharp and heavily bitter, lightly acidic with an average-length, heavily bitter moderately warm finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average.

I will talke some corn in a bottle. This was really hard to finish a bottle of. I agree with some of the other raters. If you are looking for an alternative fuel source...look no further. I felt like I could breathe fire after drinking this. The flavor is really malty, malodextrin, just a bit of like pear fruitiness, but the alcohol is what killed me on this one.
