0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Made a stop at a C-store on a late night bike ride. 3 high gravity malt liquor tall boys for 3 bucks?!? Sounds like a great deal! I like Hurricane mixed rum drinks, what could go wrong? In a word… everyfrickinthing! Let’s start with the fact that the lady behind the counter says "You don’t want anyone seeing you drink that. Here’s a paper bag." Sounds like the start of an evening filled with poor life choices. The aroma is a sweet stench of weak-ass Kool-aid and stale straw. I really couldn’t get a good visual on the mystery liquid in the bag as the only pour was straight into my beer hole. The first flavor note that blossommed on my tongue was ’shudder’. Not really a flavor as much as a recoil from the assault on my tastebuds. Not a good first impression. The finish is literally that of watered down fruit punch Kool-Aid and the second hand beer-ish essence you get when making out with a drunk girl at a party. In a rush to get back to the ride, I slugged back two more swallows so it wouldn’t splash when I hit a bump. The funk that lingered in my mouth made me start thinking about what I could do to make it go away. Eat a road kill carcass, lick a sweaty truck driver taint, suck on a urinal cake. I contemplated all of these things. Over the next 12 miles, I was able to gag down about half a can and ended up with a buzz similar to sniffing a sharpie. I couldn’t even pour it down a drain for fear of poisoning the water supply for the whole city.

Can at the Cotteridge Convention thanks to Leighton. It pours very pale gold with a small white head. The nose is sweet, sugary, sticky, grainy and some chemical fumes. The taste is sweet, grainy, cheap white bread, light alcohol, syrupy and corn bread. Medium body and average carbonation. Not nearly as much buzz as I had hoped for. Not too bad for the style. Drinks easy.
