2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
24oz can pours with a clear gold body and weak off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sugary apple and pear juice and then some boozy chemical burn to the snoot. The taste only confirms the aromatics as I get slick sugary apple and pear notes that don’t let up in their overt sweetness. This is overly sweet but not terribly offensive.

A nice little gem of a malt. Kick Axe is one of those brews that just doesn’t get enough publicity, and that is a shame. The can is artistically different than other malts of comparable potency. The ’Kick Axe’ logo is written in cursive on a shiny black can. She cracked open like a champ, and I was greeted by a sweet nose of fruitiness. The first sip is always the most interesting, and I was not let down. At a respectable 8.6 % ABV, it has a little kick to it, but not anything offensive or overly sweet. It’s almost a slightly less potent version of Axe Head, which is also made by Minhas, and is delicious in its own right. Like Axe Head, it has a ’micro-brewish’ quality to it. A great value at $1.25 per 24 ounce can, I had a good buzz for just over 5 dollars with tax and deposit. If you ever come across Kick Axe, be sure to grab it up...it’s really quite good!!!

Wisco tixo and I’m on that malted liquor again with a fever. I can’t smell or taste, but this one looks gold and has a serious hit of year mydude.

It does not kick axe, or kick ass for that matter, it is a pretty crappy malt liquor.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells like grain, corn flakes, skunk. A touch of grass maybe and some alcohol. Pours golden with a thin white head. Apple cider, some sour garbage notes, shit tons of corn syrup. This smells horrid. The can is not up to par for a malt liquor that I like. In fact it is a little gay looking like flashdance or some homo ass shit. Super sweet tons of cider and corn syrup. Exceptionally sweet even for a malt liquor. Almost not palatable and I gave ojo malo sour green apple a 3.4.

24oz ’king can’ from riversideak. Can looks like something that came from the ’80’s. Pale golden lager with little head. Nose is rough and boozy. Corn, husks, vegital, garbage, slightly sweet...really it smells like some urine in there...good god, it stinks. Really rough and adjunct laden. Sweet, vegital, corn, apple, decomposing compost. Way too sweet and I’m feeling a headache setting in. Thanks alex for bringing some more interesting malt liqour. This stuff is vile

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pretty standard fare for malt liquor. Pours a golden urine color, which was expected. Aroma is sparkling water, grapes, and corn. Not as bad as one would think. Flavor is much the same as the aroma, with a slight dishwater undertone and just a hint of smoke. Over carbonated, watery, and thin on flavor, but actually pretty good for what it is.

16oz can 9/5/09-Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of nothing. Taste of cherry, cough syrup, and alcohol. This light to medium bodied brew is different tasting than most Malt Liquors but still dreadful.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Big axe can from somewheres in Minnesota. Pours clear yellow with a white head and an aroma of carrots pureed with diahrrhea and Granny Smith apple vomit. Tastes like watery strawberry-apple and leafy sweet bread. LIfeless on the tongue. More like cheap apple wine (there’s expensive apple wine???) than beer.
