3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2008 Time for me to "Rule the Night" says the bottle. Straw colored with a quickly dissipating head, no retention. Grainy and sweet aroma, maybe even a little fruity. Sweet beginning with a touch of burnt sugar cookie, finish is sweet and grainy, maybe a little phenolic. Between medium and full bodied with higher than medium carbonation. Honestly, I don’t understand the low scores on this. Yes, yes, malt liquor, but if people were to try this in a blind tasting I wouldn’t be surprised if they gave completely different scores.
Warning: If you let this warm up too much the taste will quickly decline and be bad. My review would be much lower if I was going off of the warm taste.

24oz banged up can shared by riversideak. I really love malt liqour labels, I’d like to meet some of the graphic artists. Pours clear and gold with a white head that fall quick. Fruity artificial smelling with light corny adjunct and some hay. Light and kind of ’clean’ tasting as far as a malt liqour goes. Tangy apple finish and touches of corn through out.

Somewhat appley nose, corny and sweet but not overpoweringly so. Stale piss gold yellow pour, no head, fizz, nothing. Grainy, corny, some green apple in the finish becomes a little tart, but not unpleasant. Clean finish all things considered, light drinkable, cool ass can with a black hawk flying over the projects. Pretty cool. Wish this had more alcohol is my only complaint.

16 oz can; thanks Alex!! Clear, light gold with trace tan head; light lemony corn, stale malt, some minor green apple jolly rancher; kind of light on the ABV, so very drinkable and low on the fusel alcohol flavors; kind of weak though

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cold tall boy can. Purchased with the intention of finding the most horrifyingly awful brew to celebrate RCL’s 1200th rating...and it was a failure. This really is not bad. Aroma of niagra grapes, citrus, and sweet corn. Flavor is sweet, with more corn and caramel. The higher level of carbonation and touch of hops cut through the sweetness, leaving my palate refreshed. A very enjoyable malt liquor, especially when one considers the $1.09 price tag.

I’m totally ruling the night in the mid afternoon. Gold pour with a medium sized white head. Strong grape and grain aroma. Grapes, strawberry, corn round out the flavors. Finishes sweet, good carbonation. Not bad at all!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear yellow with a small white head. THe aroma is light corn light charcoal. Not too bad so far. The flavor is medium sweet corn but nto at all offensive. Medium bitter shockingly enough. Medium body assertive carbonation.

From a tall boy can. Looks pretty good, save the dish-soap head. Aroma is surprisingly nice, a bit of fruitiness. Flavor is a tad cardboardy but not awful. I was looking for total swill for #1200 but this was one of the best malt liquors I have had.
