Homer321 (2146) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Crystal clear yellow with small white head that dissipates quickly. Nose full of corn but not overly skunky or grapey or appley. Not much to the taste other than a touch of make behind the sugary adjunct flavor. Mostly corn. Some alcohol noticed in the finish. Pretty solid.

barn0216 (423) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle, cellared for 15 months. Pouring into a large brandy snifter, the color is golden yellow, like the dawn over Calcutta. Thankfully there is no foam to obscure its magnificent hue. After a few swirls, like the best beers, the aroma evokes an air of mystery: corn syrup is obvious, yes, but there is something else, something stalking around the edges. Alcohol? Grain? Just when you think you’ve got it, it vanishes again. Then there is the flavor... Wow! It is almost architectural in the way it builds layer upon layer. It is clear that they had the Taj Mahal in mind when they created this beer. And i daresay it exceeds its inspiration!

bytemesis (3519) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Bottle. Now this is a winner! Pours crystal clear golden yellow with a small fizzy white head that dissipates quickly leaving OK lacing. Aroma is holy corn syrup, batman, plus grain. Flavor is the same, corny and soda-like, medium sweet and little bitterness. Light body and low remaining carbonation. Full yuck.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2014
Fra dåse, 50 cl, nytårsaften i. Mandrem, Indien. Gylden, klar, og med et lille hvidt skum. Dufter sødt af sukkermalte, korn, nedfaldne æbler og alkohol. Meget boozy i munden, får et skær af metal og et anstrøg af hovedpine efterhånden som den varmes op. Halvdelen endte i håndvasken.

mansquito (3576) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Namaste, Arvada bottle: Pours clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is nail polish, malt liquor, and adjuncts. Yum. Taste is sweet, lightly boozed, corny. This is malt liquor, but really not all that horrible, given the high abv. Good thing to drink on Christmas Day when only Indian and Chinese restaurants are open.

Bule (871) - California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
22oz bottle pours a pale straw color with a bit of head. Not much flavor and noticeable alcohol.

kerenmk (2611) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Clear golden and bubbly, cooked vegetables and potato aroma, cooked veggies and stale bitterness in the mouth. Light body, mild, a little metallic aftertaste.

Chugged as part of an idiotic bet. Overly carbonated. Wheatgrass and skunk. Really not overly terrible.
