2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
24oz mega can spirit animal rating via womencantsail. Pour is sparkling golden, low foam, okay retention. Like regular Mickey ’s, this is above and beyond most macro garbage. No adjunct twang, no fusel, no brew flaws. Nose is honey malt, soft. Taste is honey bread, yellow apple. Still sweet, sugary, a tad mealy. But clearly grenades are the best malt liquors quality wise. No headache inducing chemicals. Low boost is made up for by large format.

Tall fucken can @ MJ’s house. Pale golden pour with a white head. Strong grainy, apple aroma. Sweet corn, some malt, and banana. Flavor is sweet sugar, apple, grain, and banana. Lots of corn and maybe a bit of grape. Some grass, a touch of water, some lemon. Kind of meh.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Haven’t looked hard but have never seen this in GA until I came upon this gem in a Conyers gas station. Paired with grocery store sushi that I even biked to go get. Pours per usual with an initial nice stickey head. Smell is sweet sticky grains with a hint of vodka like alcohol Taste is surprisenly not harsh, but at only 5.9 this isn’t a high gravity malt likka. Grains, sweet corn and more sweet grains. Light medium palate. What one would expect.

5.8% Bottle from Wawa Petrol Station, Kissimmee, Florida. This is a pale golden beer with light malt and toffee notes, a creamy body and slight bitterness on the finish. Pretty unappealing.

First likka. Pours a pale, pale, pale yellow. Thin white head. Scent is sweaty grain and metal. Grainy taste with just a flutter of grapes. Overcarbonated to mask the awfulness. Can - Toco Giant - Decatur, GA

24oz can. Pours clear bright gold with a frothy white head. Grassy hop aroma, light-ish body with a lightly sweet and grainy, adjunctly taste. The lightest hint of hops which are mostly submerged under a fairly sweet finish. Add just a bit more hops influence would help this beer a ton.

When I awoke it was daylight. The inside of my tent was coated in a curious flaky rime, which I realized after a moment was all of my nighttime snores, condensed and frozen and pasted to the fabric, as if into a scrapbook of respiratory memories.

40 @ home. I was at the "best" beer store in Las Cruces, New Mexico and this was the most unique beer that I found. Pours a touch hazy yellow appearance with a small head. Somewhat skunky, fairly aromatic, grainy nose. Chewy lemon cake flavor. Decent carbonation. Slight stomach acid note towards the finish but overall, pretty solid for a malt liqueur in the 6% range.

40. Fuck yeah. Paper bag with no head. Good. Flavors of malt and liquor. Seriously. Mildy sweet, a touch of hops. Damn near perfect.

40 oz bottle. I grabbed my bottle opener but silly me, it’s a screw top! Hahaha. Opened it up, and it smelled like my car hit a skunk. Actually doesn’t taste as bad as some malt likkas.
