monkeychugg55 (1011) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Super pale yellow with almost no head. The aroma is somewhat usual lager tones with some burnt sugar notes. The flavor is cloyingly sweet, with very little else. Tastes like sugar water.

Maris (1321) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 1/5/2016. Pours a clear light golden. The nose features some light apple and grain. Flavour wise, it’s very sweet and fruity - certainly has more than a hint of apple juice about it. Finishes with a very mild bitterness. Medium bodies with average carbonation. Doesn’t come across as 7%. An unusual, slightly cider like brew which isn’t too bad at all.

The_Osprey (5466) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2016
Bottle share at Cotteridge II as ’Haywards 5000’. Many thanks to the malt liquor appreciation society for providing this one. Pale yellow, clear, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is sickly sweet, corny, honey. Body is light-ish, soft carbonation. Taste is light and insipid, sweetcorn, sugary wet biscuit. Ych a fi.

Scopey (11533) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle thanks to Richy / Sarky / Boosty at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. It pours clear gold with a medium+ white head. The aroma is simple, grainy, cracker, white bread and cereal. The taste is crazy sweet, sugary, sweet white bread, earth, dirty honey, sweetcorn and a sort of oiliness. Finish is sweet and sugary. Medium body and average carbonation. Damn this is sweet and filthy. A challenge to drink.

Leighton (17461) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
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.

cadilhac (9) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016 does not count
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.
