Aroma is corn and rice adjunct and sulphur. Taste is mostly rice and bland malts. Pretty strong liquor taste. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Bottle @ Hotel. Clear golden yellow pour with white foam. More sweet cereal, grape juice, and apple juice on the nose. A bit of booze and frosted flakes. Flavor is a bit more on the corn syrup side than the lower boost iteration. Lots of sweet fruit juice as well. Getting hot, but not overly boozy.

40oz of awesomeness. Worlds above the 10.1 I just drank. cereal, caramel, floral, grass, dough, dough, dough, dough, dough, dough, and booze. This one is solid as all get out. Super easy to drink. 10/10 swill. Much love.

1.18L bottle. Clear and very yellow colour. pilsner aroma, with a very roasted malted note. Has a certain sweetness but is very malted liquor meets pilsner.

Originally rated October 2005. This Labatt malt liquor pours a pale golden colour from its 950mL can. Patchy lacing, foamy head. Loads of alcohol in the nose. Pretty smooth taste though. Mild sweetness with a corn finish. I still prefer the Mongoose, but this is not bad malt liquor.

Yes, this is another 1.18 litre monstrosity of a glass sculpture filled with Labattís finest. The bigger question being, of course, why they have so many varieties of this stuff? Have you ever met a chick at a backyard party who said "Oh, I donít know, the ten percent is just too strong, Iíd prefer to sip on the eight percent" and thus you go fish out the one-step-down Labatt of her choosing. No: in fact Iíd imagine itís just discerning homeless drunks who like to time their buzz that buys these things. So if youíre a ten sip guy, you get the ten percent; a fourteen sip guy, you get the eight percent. Ridiculous? Yes; but itís the only explanation I can come up with. So, this one pours with a slightly darker gold than the others and that same ugly styrofoam-white head. The aroma is dirty armpits and cardboard. Flavour is rice wine and vodka; or just plain old ethanol alcohol if you will. Slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Not absolutely hideous, and it gets into your gut quickly so you can get plastered and do stupid things that your friends can take pictures of and post on facebook. Thus, it is not horrible as a "functional" beer, but seriously, it still really, really sucks.

1.18 bottle- This was the perfect accent on an evening of Arrogant bastard and Stone 11th. Pale yellow liquid sits beneath a frothy, but short lived bleached white foam, which falls to a thin ring. The nose is awash with grains, creamed corn and fruity pale malts. Sweet pale malts meet sweet grains and combine with wet hay and corn. Itís a bit alcoholic as it warms, with a weird bitterness that seems chemically enhanced. Better than the 7.1% anyway.......

I had this at a party last night , it was the 10.1 stuff however in the 1.18 L bottle. A buddy that I met last night brother brought it back from Quebec. All I gotta say is this beer is disgusting. It had a foggy orangeish color and tasted bitter in a very bad way. A very crappy beer.

This sucker has been sitting in my closet for a month or two out of fear. 40 ozs of this is just more than any one person should willingly be subjected to by themselves. Nonetheless, I threw it in the cooler and took it camping. Sampled in a clear plastic cup by the campfire. Pale yellow body, with a good head. Grainy pale malt aroma with light cidery lemon juice notes? WTF? Flavour is fairly similar. Alcohol is surprisingly not that in your face considering. Average to light palate. Not nearly as bad as I expected this to be but even with two helpers I still left 10-20 ozs in the bottle.
