2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention - 2016 edition. What a treat! Huge thanks to MacBoost for this. Pours clear yellow with a white foam topping. The nose holds sugary cereal and white bread. Medium sweet flavour, with lots of sugary vanilla frosting, paper, cereal grains. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Cloying finish, lots more sugar, simple white bread. One of the lesser malt liquors tried on the day.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
No head, aroma of caramel and boozy rhum. Taste is way too sweet to distinguish anything, maybe some wood. Aftertaste of alcohol once the sweetness fades. Overall some sugar packed sparkling drink with alcohol. Beer? No, not sure.

Clear deep yellow-golden colour with a small white head. Aromas of cereal, malt, caramel and metal off-flavour develops. Averagely carbonated, cloggingly slick with a alcohol laden body. Sweet is the main theme here. Clogging sweet finish.

Can from Drops Total Spirits, 100 Feet Road, Bangalore. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, yeast, some alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich, grainy, mineral alcoholic palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation. I feel sorry for Indians.
