1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma has corn like malt and light hops. The appearance is pale gold with a small white head. The flavor is like a malt liquor. There is nothing great here just malt and a metallic, plastic, astringent finish. The palate is thin and slightly oily. This beer is not stale just not good. The only decent quality is the malt and thats it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured out watery gold with almost no head. It has a very mild aroma of grainy cereal malts and sweet malts. After a few more samples of the nose it becomes apparent this beer is virtually odorless. The flavor has lots of grainy cereal like malts and corn. After that is a sizable sugary malt taste. There may also be a hint of noble hops in there too.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden malt liquor with quickly dissipating head and a sweet tangy alcoholic finish. I can understand why others might not like this so mush, but for the style it is one of the best.

Pours a clear gold with a frothy but quickly dissipating snow-white head. Sweet and sour pale malt, lightly spicy.
Lightly sour pale malt, tinges of rice. Spicy hops and a taste of alcohol heat. Quite a sticky mouth. This is very malt liquor like. Drinkable but thats about it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Thin yellow, thin white head, no lacing. Nose of brown rice and in-the-husk corn, sweet tarts and hops over a bed of alcohol. The flavor is zesty and balanced between the cloying over-extracted pale malt, the alcohol and the stripped of every last drop of resin hops. Finishes thick and bitter with a choking sweetness. Mugh.
