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.

40 oz. bottle that I just had to have. Many of my friends had not experienced this gem, so it worked out I guess. Pours clear golden, more like juice than anything. Sweet grainy malt nose, perhaps metal laced fruits. Flavor is more of the same. This really isn’t worth rating, but I have so few ticks I thought I needed some fluff.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This malt liquor pours a light orange color from a clear glass screw top 40. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is apples, corn and alcohol. A light to medium bodied malt liquor. Malts are corn, apples and sweet. Hops, what hops? No objectionable flavors, other than the corn and metallic taste. Watery and fizzy, high in fusels. Fizzly over carbonationated. Ech. Least it did not melt the glass, whereas some may ask the appropriateness of pouring this in a glass in the first place. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and harsh. Aftertaste is sweet.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
40 to pint. Looks sub-par; a transparent gold with thin white head that completely dissipates pretty quickly. Carbonation is lively though, so it’s kind of strange. Smells cheap and doughy. Tastes like it smells with bad apple cider notes. Below average on the palate. Gonna have to get the wife to help me finish this one, but hey, a tick’s a tick.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 Along with all ’malt liquors’, pure swill. Avoid at all costs unless you’re a glutton for punishment.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Very light in color, aroma and taste. Just bought this for the fun of it. It actually had a little head and a little lacing on my glass. Tastes like corn flakes and water. Aroma is metallic and almost non-existent. Had this again as Jaguar malt liquor. Even worse than I remembered.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nothing says the holidays like a 24 oz of malt liquor. Straw to golden color with a taller off-white head. Scents of wet paper, light fruit, corn and hint of circus peanuts. Sweet and cloying aromas. Sweet and fruity in the front. Dries out slightly and has some stall nut bitterness. Stall basement nuances. I can barely finish the first pour. Glad there was a tall head. Fairly thick and lifeless in feel.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy fine to large sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated weak straw yellow colored body and a fair lacing. Typical awful ML aroma. The mouth feel is tingly and harsh in a ML way. The flavor contained notes of malt and grass. Not a great brew by any means. It deserves the brown bag!

24 oz bottle. Consumed as a part of an 18 beer blind Malt Liquor tasting. Pours a pale gold with a small frothy white head. The aroma is slightly soapy with some light corn. The flavor is very thin with some weak watery corn, some light veggies, and no alcohol. Pretty thin and a bit sticky on the finish. Not too offensive.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective Porter tasting at Dogbricks on 12/4/08. This was the warmup beer. Pours a clear yellow with some white head. Aroma of malt and some yeast. Watery flavor with some malt. A bit tart. Not gonna buy it any time soon, but not as god awful as I expected.
