Hmm. For a higher alcohol level this isnít as bad as Steel Reserve and other high alcohol malt liquors. Itís got a taste to it too, one that is there beside the expected sweetness and alcohol. Perhaps itís the skunk factor, but whatever it is it offsets the usual gross same-ness. Drank straight from a 16 ounce can

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
The stories I have heard have all been of ferociously unapproachable beer, designed for the one purpose to mainline alcohol into bloodstreams for the usually ill reason than to do as much damage as possible. My opinion is coloured by a beer that I truly deem to be the worst I have experienced in the world - and Indonesian beer named El Diablo, fraught with herbicide and unwanted pregnancies. Same colour of corn-like golden with a temporary head. Aroma is as artificial grain as I am unlucky to get. Thereís corn syrup and regret here. The flavour is sweet and like taking a bite out of cornstarch. It is slightly drier, but no more drinkable than the Indonesian doppleganger. Ugh. Beer for the homeless and those drinking to end their lives slowly.

Have to admit this is better than what I was expecting (which was not much). This is a boring bland beer with very little flavour, which I am guessing at 7.5% alc is the appeal.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can to snifter. Nose is mostly corn. Not much apple like most. Amazingly not skunked. Canned malt likka is the best. Slightly sweet and not that alcoholic. Corn lingers. Long corn finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can share thanks to Homer321. Pours a brilliantly clear, golden yellow color with huge foamy white head. Smooth sweet malt, adjunct/corn character, tropical fruity esters. Mild sweet malt flavor, corny, boost is definitely detectable in the the finish. Overall pretty tasty high gravity malt likka.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from U-Save Liquor in Chowchilla, CA for $1.50. Nice looking medium gold pour with with an inch white head that lasts for a long time. Fine carbonation cascades from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is not too bad. I get some nice hops, but also a little metallic presence. Flavor is sour and metallic with a slightly sweet corn finish. Heavy carbonation and lighter body. Overall the beer does not taste very good, but it is drinkable. The appearance though is what surprised me. The color was nice, the head lasted for a long time, and the bubbles cascading from the bottom of the glass were appealing.
On a side note, this place sells Sculpin 22oz bottles for $3.79.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can, 24oz. A clear, golden beer topped by a white head. Quite neutral aroma, but sweetish. Some grains and popcorn, and a hint of fruityness. Lots of popcorn in the flavor, with some fruity hints and a faint bitterness. Medium body, slighlty sticky, with a soft carbonation and too much alcohol warmth. Sweet, popcorn-like and lightly fruity finish. I expected a lot more awfulness from this one, actually itís not that bad... but still nothing Iíll repeat. 130804
