1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma - Strange. Apple vinegar. Yeast. Spices. Alcohol.
Appearance - Looks promising. Clear and golden with billowy white head.
Taste - Huge malty sweetness, almost syrupy, medicinal, some caramel notes. Pretty boozy. The seeming lack of hop bitterness to offset the intense sweetness is a bit problematic. Strange side notes: metal, balsamic vinegar, cough syrup.
Palate - Medium bodied.
Overall - The most bizarre beer I have ever tasted. I am not quite sure what the brewers were trying to accomplish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cream. herbal lemon, and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet lemon, milky caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal and alcohol flavor. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: (labeled as 8.8 %)
Pours nearly clear, pale gold with a creamy white head.
Slightly sour white grape, grain malt aroma.
Lemon, honey, pils taste.....very sweet..
This is really VERY good...seriously.......
I hope this is the right rate, the Lion Strong clocks in at 8.8, but the labeling indicates this one...both are SPL/IP’s...well, it was a great little beer, I’ll take an admin slap for it if I’m wrong!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rated on 1-17-2011 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small white head that mostly diminishes, transparent yellow golden tint, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malty, grainy, corn, floral, sweet, fruity, spicy, and alcohol. The taste is sweet, crisp, malt, floral hops, corn, grainy, some alcohol, and a bit harsh. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. I did not like the harshness with the flavor of this beer and it made it difficult for me to drink this beer let alone enjoy it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At Hops and Props Beer Fest. Not sure why no one likes this. The aroma is caramel sweet, cereal grain, grassy. The flavor follows. The finish is spicy noble hops. Good overall.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Oh my god, this is one of the all time worst beers! I poured it a bit too cold which should have benefitted this, but its quality shown thru. The beer reeked of sweet solvents. One taste and I almost retched; had to dump it and wash my mouth out. If you want somebody to leave your party, give them this beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light caramel, grain, apples and lemongrass. A musky aftertaste detracts from this one. Alcohol is well masked. More flavorful than your typical lager, but not as crisp.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. can shared by DrSilverworm- thanks, Chris! Looks almost like champagne on the pour, a very pale yellow with big bubbles and a quick fizzy white head. Notes of pils and pale malts, sugar, straw, grape, and apple. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Meh.
