Can from Utah Liquor Store. Pours clear with a disappearing white head. Not much of the nose. Tastes like corn oil. Hides the alcohol well but where’s the taste?

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can 24 oz from VA, Virginia Beach
Aroma: I was expecting plenty of unrefined rocket fuel but this one is just on another level, Think of giving lambing to you ole uncle Joe, well this is opposite. Under this dirty carpet you might find few grains of white abd brown sugar.
Look; I gave this beer fair chance. Poured in nice chalice it produced almost no head. Forget about lace or rings on glass. Base was standard clear amber gold.
Taste/Palate/Body: medium bodied. Oily front with average lighter carbonation (for style) backed up by mineral notes. Longer finish (alcohol dryness). Considering my aroma notes this is step above. Sugary residue on 10$ mickey vodka.
Summary: overall very poor. If you are looking for cheap lager that is 8% plus nothing beats Poles, or Ukis, or Russians ....You got it?! Now do your self a favour and grab Gubernja 9.5

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Corn nose, light fusel alcohol but not hotter than expected. Clear efervescent dark amber, medium head. Cheap grainy corn flavor, not as harsh as comparable macro american pale lagers, but fusel alcohol is quite evident. Lemony tang at the end. Ticked.

24oz tall boy. Shared thanks to dmac. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma is grainy, with hint of rice, corn, and citrus. Taste of light citrus, cereal, corn, and rice.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
24 ounce can from... somewhere. Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of major corn with some grain and a hint of hops. The taste is corn, grain, more corn. Some cider-ish notes as well. Medium bodied. It’s a malt liquor all right.

Really doesn’t taste like much but like all true HGL’s, true color shows as it warms. Cheap and good for a buzz, nothing more.

Can picked up at a 7-Eleven. Medium gold pour with a thick white head that quickly dissipates. Creamed corn aroma. A bit of cake icing. General grains. The taste is apple juice. More grain. Quite syrupy, sweet. Hot finish. Slick mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Overall, not awful.
