1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tall boy from a hole in the wall liquor store. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is not much of anything. Flavor is good in that there seems to be little in the way of fusil oils. Just enough to ruin the taste, but not enough to sicken.

Big can. Poured amber color with a large frothy off-white head that diminished slowly and had some lacing. Light sweet grainy aroma. Light body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a sweet alcohol finish. Worth having once.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The pour is a clear, pale, golden yellow color with a white head. A lot of corn, corn syrup, and sugar. Maybe some fruity esters and cereal/grain sweetness to it. Just really quite sweet. Some pear and apple esters along with lots of grain and sugary sweetness. Definitely heavy on the corn. Another fine malt beverage.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Straight from the can (per the instructions)... Couldn’t see it, so I have no clue what it looks like. The aroma is of sweet corn, straw and honey. Medium to full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Just as sweet and corny as Steel Reserve High Gravity, but not as rough around the edges. The alcohol is not as noticeable, although the abv for both is pretty much the same. Finishes corny and moderately sweet. Bonus points for not being all that harsh for an 8% malt liquor and, of course, the really cool name. Shoulda shotgunned it.

Well shit, another one of these awesome drainpours. Good comedy at the Black Friday tasting. But pretty god awful. Puke in a can...or at least a puke waiting to happen.

0.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Can @ the First Annual Rocky Mountain Malt Liquor Tasting. Light yellow appearance with a white head. Not all that horrendous of an aroma. A touch citrusy, honey, grainy malty aroma. Honey, sickly sweet, pale malty flavor with booze on the finish. Oh fuck me. Horrible but this isn’t the bottom of the barrel.

Monstrosity of a can shared by maniac at Slutfest 3, Richmond, VA, 4/21/12. Pours a clear very pale golden color with a large fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Very weak aroma of acrid grain and corn. The taste is green apple, corn and grain.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
24oz can from trashy liquor store. Clear golden, soapy white foam. Weaker retention. Nose is cinnamon baked apple, not bad. Taste is bland, soapy, apple, some white alcohol. Not nearly as bad as the other malt liquors today. Didn’t mind this one. Pepsican seal of approval.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Can. Sweet barley malt and fusel alcohols aroma. Golden yellow color with giant white head. Sweet barley malt initially followed by strong fusel alcohol flavor. Everything that’s good about Natural Light combined with all that’s good about malt liquor.
