lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Amber golden, puffy white head. Aroma is metallic, syrupy, rough. Taste is again brutally sweet, bready, syrupy, and just no good.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2012
This is the beer I find most emblematic of the given style. Copper-orange color, can’t sustain head. Mostly clear, yet dense looking. Sweet malt nose with big alcohol chops. Hint of vanilla. Taste is exactly what is expected - very sweet yet biting. Thick feel, long bitter finish. Burns the esophagus. A rare beer where the high proof itself carries the day. Much enjoyed.

Light ambergold, small off white head. Malty alcohol, caramel with a light body. Decent, but not good enough to tempt me to buy it again.

ccex (944) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2011
500 ml bottle pours a clear amber color with a light head and a little lacing. The aroma is the most memorable part of this beer: caramel malt and definite alcohol. Taste is sweet with noticeable carbonation. Pleasant for the price, and lots classier than a malt liquor.

drowland (6124) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2011
11/29/11. 500mL bottle. Clear amber pour under a very small khaki head that fades to a ring and barely laces at all. Sweet caramel aroma with plenty of fusel alcohol. Sweet caramel flavor as well with bread and more fusels... methinks this is basically a malt liquor but even thicker. Blegh.

WVHouseofBeer (868) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pours a nice bright copper color with a medium-sized off white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. Aromas of grain, malt and alcohol. Flavors of some fruit, caramel and toffee with a slightly harsh alcoholic finish. Light to medium bodied with a nice crisp finish. Overall this was okay.......not bad for the price I guess.

Ernesto987 (3859) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Great floral aroma, sweet light malts, saaz hops. Eh flavor falters, dense pils malts, this would’ve been much better with lighter malt bill. Pilsner finish.
