2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a pint glass. Pours a frankly pee-colored yellow with an inch of white head. The suds reduces to a blotchy cap leaving some unexpectedly substantial lacing.
Nose is citrusy with a faint metallicness. Also some grainy sweetness.
Flavor is grainy caramel maltiness with a buttery note at the end. Some tart citrus and an almost candy-like sweetness round things out.
Mouthfeel is pleasantly dry for the amount of sweetness, but itís also overcarbonated. The medium-light mouthfeel canít really contend with the alcohol level either.
Drinkability is hampered by the high alcohol and the eventually cloying sweetness.

Sweet aroma of malt and grain with some candy notes. Taste is similar but even sweeter with some bitter herbs and definately some alcohol showing through.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours bright golden with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of sweet grain, some ethanol and fusels, cookie dough, candied malt, herbal hop bitterness. Taste is sticky, malty, sweet candied malt with some herbal bitterness. Mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation. I’m generally not a big fan of golden lagers brewed to a high ABV,but this wasn’t bad. More drinkable than the typical Euro Strong Lager.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared by EDA. A strong, skunky lager, massively corny and sickly sweet. Typical and expected in every regard, I canít imagine much worse than a shitty lager thatís been amped up to 8%. This really tastes like that bottle of yuengling I had that froze in my garage and I dranked "eis"ed.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
gold color with a small head. Flavor is a bit boozy with just a slight corn flavor. Second taste is getting pretty disguisting. Third taste is like novocaine. Uncle!

Ugh...this is awful! The one thing I will admit..this does NOT taste like an 8%er. Aroma was weak. Could pick up light malt but barely. Pour was a light gold with no head or bubbles. Taste was very sweet and thick. Could pick up malt but very heavy in the sugar. This tastes like malt liquor to me. Wow...as I get to the middle this may be a drainpour.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color was light golden/orange. The head was creamy, thin, and off-white. The aroma was tart, acidic, and lacking. The flavor was light alcohol, corn, and bran. The palate was thin/medium bodied. The finish was a little warm.

Pours a golden yellow with a thin frothy offwhite head. The aroma is weird, smells like glue, bad glue. Man that smells weird. Ok then it melts into grassy hops, hay. Warm wet hay. Oh god, this thing tastes weird. Warm alcohol, wet hay. Yikes. Okay, feels hot and dry and weird. Hoo...ray.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden color with almost no head. The aroma was typical sour, tangy lager. The flavor was tangy, sour, bitter and almost skunky. Drain pour.
