Has a rich golden color. Smell is dominated by alcohol. Taste is alcohol, green apples, not very good. Overall a pretty lousy beer.

wedgie9 (1824) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Tasted on 7/10/14 from a 24oz can purchased at a gas station in Georgia. Pours clear pale golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is corn and toast with the faintest hint of green hops. The flavor is very corny with toast and the same very faint hint of green. The body is medium with average, fizzy carbonation, and a short toasty, corny finish.

Had this yrs ago. 12packs at some beer stores so don;t see this one around much. Just a higher % lager that is good unlike some high % lager’s. Drink one always seemed kinda quickly downed drink a seconed one after and it took a little while. Usally feelt a buzz of one right away but sometimes not till the start of a 2nd one or moments after one. When I had it I liked it but dont usally see it around. Cheer’s!!!!!

The smell is the worst part about this beer as it is with most macro beers -- an unpleasant aroma of corn, stale water and cardboard. The appearance actually isn’t bad, a medium-light straw with a good amount of lace. The taste is far from terrible, just a bit bland and on the malty side. If you need a high ABV for a BBQ or other sweaty outdoor event, you could do worse than XXX. You could also do a lot better, though.

Transfer from BA review on 4-10-12 - Poured from can into pint glass Appearance – Pours a golden color with a large white head. The heads retention is rather weak and it fades quite fast giving way a light amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is heavy of cereal. Corn is the heaviest with a lighter amount of wheat mixed of a slightly metallic and caramel aroma as well. Taste – The sweet corn present in the nose is the first meet by the tongue. There are light hints of caramel more towards the middle, but these are very light in comparison to the sweeter corn flavor. At the end of a taste, an alcohol flavor works its way in. It’s not too potent and gives a nice warming feel. Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is good for the style. A little bit above average in terms of body with a medium level of carbonation. Very fitting for the brew. Overall – This was not what I would call a great brew, but it did have some decent characteristics and did have a more potent flavor. It is very reminiscent of a malt, but with a little bit more flavor. Nothing great, but for the price (while not as economic as a malt like steel reserve) it works.

Not my first beer, but the first time I actually enjoyed it, probably because of the party I was at. As far as strong piss water goes, this is some of the better stuff. Taste like corn and vegetable oil with non existent hops, yet bitter from the thick syrup residue left on your tongue. Make sure to drink as cold as possible to actually get this one down.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle I grabbed only because it was a malt liquor that wasn’t rated horribly. For a malt liquor it wasn’t horrible but it is was below average against any other standard. Lots of adjunct. Not terrible though.

Pours a golden yellow with a medium white head. Has fruity citrus nose with some grains and cereal, corn flavor. Palate is a medium body, carbonation is good. The finish is the same as above with some lingering sweet grains and alcohol on the end. Overall not too bad, an ok drinking brew for the style.

Krampus via boostipa. I haven’t been exposed to as much Molson as much as I realized they had, most likely not a bad thing. Pours a clear golden/yellow with a large white head after an aggressive pour because this xxx already had me pumped up. Aroma of corn, alcohol and lager yeast. Taste of sweet corn and sweet grain finishing with regurgitated corn meal malt. Yep, I’ve had worse.
