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.

(bottle - plastic 40 oz) Gold pour with a fizzy head. Smells like corn and cheap. Flavor is sweet corn, bad grass and not much else. Gets the job done.

Can from liquor mart in New York September 2013. Big hit of alcohol in this one, not bad but nothing really impressive.

Ah, the punishment continues. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a clear yellow color with a film of a bubbly head that dissipated and didnít allow any lacing anywhere. The smell was basically grainy, sweet and boozy. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Sessionable? Not really, as there was just too much boozy grainy sweet sugar in the way. Overall, another malt liquor I didnít really enjoy. Iíll keep trying this style to try to understand but donít ask when thatíll happen.

40 oz bottle shared with some family because there was no way I could drink this all by myself. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small disappearing white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy malt, corn, some weird chemical note. This was not very good.

40 oz. bottle. Clear piss yellow, no head. Aroma is rice, nothing else. Flavor is well... Nothing. Absolutely nothing. When warm it has the same rice flavor I smelled when it was cold. Yes, why anybody rates malt Liquors is hard to know. Clearly Iím doing this to bump up my numbers in the style category. Stupid

Thanks to Blake and Jenny for the 40.. couldíve used a little help drinking it. Poured straight out of the 40 into my mouth.. apple juice yellow in the clear glass. The aroma picked up corn and sweet pale malt.. really not offensive (at least when it was cold, right out of the fridge). The flavor found similar.. sweet creamed corn, pale malts, and a little cardboard, with prickly carbonation throughout.. sweet and a little sticky on the finish. Light-bodied with lots oí carbonation throughout.. almost creamy on the middle.. OK overall feel, but the big carbo made it hard to drink fast enough.

Would pound this back after eight hours of cooking for jerks. nasty, filthy, left me with a feeling of extreme guilt as i stumbled around my humble abode. eventually developed acute gout. a foul, evil, predatory taste. would later fill with cold water and suck back in a feeble attempt to stave off gout attack.

First off, the reason I give this the (high) score that I do is that itís cheap and does precisely what the imbiber should expect....gets you wasted. It smells like sweet, corny piss, like a cat pissed in some HFCS and then rolled in some hay. The appearance is shitty, probably better left in a paper bag. A thin white frothy head that dissolves quick and lets you see that sweet golden syrup. A decent amount of carbonation in the greasy thing. No real surprises from this beast, just a medium body with a slick, mouthfeel. If I ever become homeless this will be a daily treat. She gets ya drunk boys.
