Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Poured into a lager glass. Pretty clear pour, light straw color in the glass. Three and half fingers of head. Despite tall head, it dissipated rapidly. It smells day-long wet grains. Not horrible. Watery taste at first, quickly moved towards sweet... and just stayed there. Not a malty sweet, just a pure sugar sweetness that lingers uncomfortably long. Smooth and light body. Moderate carbonation. Sticky texture. I did not like that. It is what it is. Thankfully it is cheap. Iíve had way worse cost to satisfaction ratios with other beers. Still, itís doubtful Iíll be physically able to finish the 24 oz can.

From the 40oz bottle, shared by Jay. Clear golden color, Decent thin white head around the edge, with some dots of lace. Not horrible corn nose, having a hard time finding the fruit here. Skunky gummy finish, makes me want to reach for a glass of water. Poured my self a half a snifter for the first taste, and Iím struggling to finish that. Why bother when I have a Torpedo IPA within arms reach? ... For science, thatís why (the IPA will serve as my chaser). Kind of a chemically taste. Milk? Some sweet, light bitter, moderate sour taste. Smooth, lighter carbonation, but a really weird bite. Some cardboard. Ok, Iím done. The amount of people that have given this 5ís is hilarious. A lot of people seem to love it because Eazy E drank it. He probably got free cases of it sent to him on the regular

24oz guzzler can, during "boyz in the hood" and "menace II society" double-feature Ok, so itís got no (good) aroma, looks pretty sketchy, and tastes like an old dirty sock - for $1.49, what do you expect? Iíve spent more and liked beers less. Haha I love the description about the "urban mindset" - they know who their customers are.

40oz Bottle. Poured yellowish gold with a white head. Aroma was sweet and corny. Flavor was sweet and corny as well with a bit of a metallic taste. Was very thick on the tongue

Served at fridge temp in Hill Farmstead Stemware. Gotta get my malt liquor category review.

A - Light golden orange. Hint of head that fades fast. Okay head lacing.

S - Thereís this burnt malts scent. Sort of stale and old and very boring. Iím surprised though that thereís any smell at all.

T - There is no taste! Itís amazing. Itís this flat boring moldy tasting dirt tap water taste. Itís very bland and boring.

M - 5% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body.

O - This may be the worst beer Iíve ever tasted. Itís not even beer. Itís fermented toilet water.

double deuce bottle (neat thing about clear bottles for ratebeereans is that you donít need a glass because you know the head will quickly disappear and the color is right there) - pours clear pale yellow with little white head. Nose is cardboard. Flavor adds hay. Light sweetness. watery and burpy (Dominoís peperoni pizza and I admit it tasted way better than the last I had it).

Smells sweet and gross. Taste is rotten, and the aftertaste is long and dirty. Palate is gritty and fizzy. Somehow it tastes good with orange juice in it, but those first few sips are terrible.

40 oz to pint (from notes). This is garbage. It looks bad, smells and tastes like shit, and has an unpleasant mouthfeel. Just. Plain. Nasty.
