1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
473 ml can from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear yellow with a fluffy and frail white head.
Aroma: Sweet, grainy, malt liquor-like, odd, vague fruitiness.
Palate: Medium body, moderate-ish carbonation.
Flav.: Like the nose, but with a more assertive alcohol presence; lightly sweet with minimal bitterness and a slightly boozy, fruity, grainy finish.
Almost as bad as expected.

SF5, thanks to drake. This one is not my fault. Clear yellow, slight head. Straight up corn aroma. Flavor is blessedly absent. Just a hint of corn. Tolerably bad.

"Didn’t care for this as much as the slightly less alcoholic Ice, but still not as bad as the american counterparts (though owned by AB). No skunk, no offense. The abv was a bit much for this style, otherwise it was crisp and clean. Pretty simple mellow malt/corn sweetness and juuust a touch of hops. "

Drank from a twenty four ounce can. Smell of malts and booze. Taste is very sweet and of booze with a fairly dry finish. Below average malt liquor.

(can - 24 oz) Clear gold with a fizzy head. Corn and booze aroma. Overly sweet. Same with the flavor. Pretty standard bad Canadian, or any nationality, malt liquor.

Transfer from BA review on 11-29-12-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium amber color with a two finger pure white head. The head is rather thick and has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a corn and caramel sweet aroma. There is a light aroma of a biscuit smell as well as a very light citrus aroma as well.
Taste – The taste begins of a big bready flavor mixed with a caramel sweetness. A sweeter corn taste then starts to come to the tongue as the taste advances. More toward the end the sweeter flavors grow even stronger and mix with a light citrus hop flavor as well as a bit of a paper taste. Overall a sweet flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The carbonation level of the brew is on the slightly lower side with a body that is on the slightly creamier side. Surprisingly, even at 7.1 % the alcohol flavor very familiar to many malts, is absent in this one.
Overall – In many ways a very standard malt. A little less boozy tasting with a bit more caramel instead of corn then the most. It’s not too bad for the price or the bang it gives.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours a clear golden color. The head is big, foamy and bright white in color, which quickly fades to thin ring around the top. The aroma has a heavy malty character that is bready and biscuity. There is a strong milled corn scent as well. A thick sweet liquor taste and a grainy malt character drive its flavor. Hop flavors are light and add only a light grassy taste and some bitterness to the finish. The carbonation is fairly high but fades and becomes rather slick in texture and its light to medium bodied. Its malty to the max and it will get you loaded quickly and cheaply. Overall it is a passable brew for some serious drinking.

24oz Can via krampus from boostipa. Pours a clear golden/yellow with a large white head after pouring the hell out of this. Aroma of sweet table sugar, corn, stale malt. Sweet corn, followed by a hit of alcohol, oh man...
