0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
40 oz. bottle. Part of a sick, sick game- that wound up being a lot of fun. This stuff is rough, like any other malt liquor, but if I had my arm twisted, itís easier to drink than OE 800 or Colt 45.

Out of a 40oz bottle with an older label and bought at a local bodega. Gold inside with lots of foam. Seems to wash down the son of baconator I am having with it pretty well.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
25oz can, from a Kroger in a more urban neighborhood. Code on the bottom reads "14065 WA39". Yeah, thatís right, this is a twenty-FIVE ounce can. I was on the fence about purchasing this beverage, but once I noticed that this can generously included and extra ounce, I knew my decision was made. Shared with homies. Totally clear golden color. Thin white, kind of bubbly head. Looks decent. Head retains reasonably well, better than expected. Couple ropes of lace, even. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Medium body. Light dry bite to the finish. Some wet bready flavor. Light spicy hop or something. Beery taste I guess, not much flavor at all to it, kind of watery overall, but not terribly offensive flavor. Taste is definitely offensive though. Very big bite at the end gets noticeable more and more as you go. Mouth is signficantly number towards the end of this, seems like my mouth is buzzing from numbness, even. Mouth feels very dry, the beer is not helping at all with that. We had to get glasses of water before continuing. Feeling a very weird buzz from this beer... But I think itís from the adjnucts, not the alcohol. Iíve drinking many other 6% beers faster than this and never had this same feeling. Thereís some kind of chemical in this that is messing people up and maybe even getting them addicted to this stuff, who knows. Interesting, but the taste in the end makes it hard to drink. A noticeable bite to it. Interesting to try, but no way this could make for an every dayír unless we want to go crazy. I feel like if I started drinking this regularly... Iíd be very down on my luck, before I knew it... Friends say "Exceptionally watery. Aroma is like that of banana Runts candy. This tastes like they took a bag of malts, dumped it into a vat of water, and left it out in the rain for several days. Body is kind of like a sugary soft drink. Coasts your whole mouth, not in a good way."

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is trace malt (grain), trace hops (flowers), with hints of apple and paint thinner. Flavor is moderately sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. For being near 6%, it sure doesn't have any body or aroma. Sweet like shuggah (not Meshuggah).

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
40 oz bottle from the local 7-11 and shared with a friend. Pours a near yellow with small white carbonation driven head and dies to near nothing. Aromas are a touch of alcohol, a touch of grainy adjunct, and not much else. Initial is a bit of sweet graininess, corn and light sweetness, a touch boozy and watery underneath. Finish is empty, light adjuncty sweetness, a touch of sharp alcohol on the finish. Not too good. Not completely awful. Close though.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 This brings back memories from my dim years when, as a kid, Iíd swill down any piss-water for a buzz. (No, Iím not proud of that!) Its look, scent, and taste explain why itís usually a brown-bagged favorite of those who drink on curbs.
Got suckered into buying a can of this under the name "Jaguar High Gravity Lager". Damn it!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Born on date: 1/03/02 (good vintage). Drinkable - delivers what it promises without tasting like rubbing alcohol dripped through a sock. Tiny bit of malt flavor with a hint of corn squeezings. Pithy head - that actually has a bit of lacing and hangs around for a while. Aroma - I've smelled worse.
