1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dark gold body. Aroma is over ripe oranges and apples. There is a note vanilla. Seriously, like a cheap Chardonnay. The taste is strong cardboard and some light peaches. There is also a note of grass and honey. Not as bad as others have said. For the alcohol content, it is reasonable.

Can. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of red styles, apple peel, some fruitiness and malt. Flavor is sweet and malty worth some apples. Medium body, average carbonation.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Reminder to self, AB product check born on date. To late - 25APR07. Lightly hazed dark straw color with a tall. popcorn colored head. Sweet nose, with grapes, corn silage, grass and beets. Iím reminded of cole slaw. Rice flavors abound, not strong, but certainly there. A light beer and light sake mix come to mind. Some old fashioned glue paste also come to mind. Some mild wood flavors in the finish, perhaps balsa. Not much here, but what is here is not that good.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 Rerate More throat clenching and oily this time around. Original Beverage Warehouse, Roswell, Ga - 24 oz aluminum black, ghetto ready can. Actually pours quite well - dark golden with a frothy, slightly pithy white head. Typical wet paper bag aroma, common of this ilk with a bit of alcoholized fruit juicy notes. Flavor is not throat clenching, some underlying Hawaiian Punch fruitiness and a hint of syrupy maltiness. 24 oz was more than I could handle though, turns boozy, syrupy and too fruity sweet near the end. Mouthfeel is quite thin, as is fusel alcohol. Approach with caution.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 24 oz can poured into Tulip glass. Light orange color - aroma is horrible. Taste isnt as bad as I expected but still pretty shitty.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Another big purdy can. We sure are blessed this evening! Trivial pursuit and King Cans. Life is good in Canada! Sweet sugary aroma with plenty of boiled cabbage and other assorted vegetables lurking beneath. Clear golden body with low but lasting, fine bubbled, white head that recedes to a lasting cover and leaves some lace down the sides of the glass. Alcohol is strong in the flavour and almost overpowers the dirty dish water, and boiled corn and cabbage flavour. Sickly sweet aftertaste that lingers. Light bodied and fairly hot with lively carbonation that prickles the tongue. Can sampled with ClarkVV, muzzlehatch and Sprocket.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
24 oz can purchased at Woodmans in Janesville, WI (swill heaven) and forced upon my compatriots tiggmtl and ClarkVV while drunkenly attempting to play Trivial Pursuit. Honey-syrup appearance, honestly I think it poured slow, with an enormous fluffy head that actually lasted, honestly I must give them credit for this...tremendously awful, I mean nearly wretch-inducting rotting veggie-sewage nose, Stevenís dog didnít even like it....syrupy-salty flavor, not a good combination but not as stomach-churning as the nose...thick, cloying body. Yeah, another winner from A-B.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A dark gold pour from a 40oz can. An aroma of some malt and an off aroma. I made the mistake of drinking this baby at about 55 degrees. The longer you sip it the worse it gets. It has a sweet malt like flavor at first and changes as it goes to an off flavor of alochol and paper. Call me a rating whore but I had to rate a malt liquor but I donít have to drink it all. One of the worst beers Iíve tried to drink. 37 ozs to the drain. Sorry AB.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
24 oz can. Tasted as a part of an 18 beer Malt Liquor Blind tasting. Pours a clear dark gold with minimal to no head. The nose is all corn and rice with a little bit of cooked celery. The flavor is pretty awful. Spoiled corn and cooked veggies with a sweet sugary finish. Moderate alcohol noticeable. A little heavier in body with a clingy sticky finish. Pretty awful all around.
