Can share thanks Homer. Pours golden with white head. Aroma of corn and boost. Taste is corn, yellow, burn, tough one.

Can from Frank!!! Nose is strong adjunct and apple. Pour is a clear golden yellow with a small lingering white head. Taste is super sweet and candy like. Ugh. Way too sweet.

Strangebrewer (859) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
40oz bottle. Poured clear gold with a big white head. Light grainy aroma. Medium body with quite a creamy mouthfeel that finishes with a warming alcohol feel. Sweet grainy malt flavour with alcohol. Not the worst beer Iíve had.

DrSilverworm (6375) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 24oz can, bought from a Kroger located in a more urban location. Best by September 1, 2014. Clear golden, slightly orange color. Good thin off-white head, retains well. Leaves good ropes and bits of lace. Looks pretty decent. Medium body. Kind of smooth texture, light to moderate carbonation, light bite to the texture. Lightly slick. Lightly drying finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light bite in the finish... Not as bad as expected. Pretty solid for an 8% malt liquor, really. Bready flavor, lightly peppery, not much more to the aroma beyond that. Not too much offensive about it. Just a light mustiness, light hint of metallic, but surprisingly clean overall, especially for an 8%ír. Solid stuff. One of the better malt liquors Iíve ever had, hides the alcohol well. Actually managed to kill the whole can myself without much of an issue.

Can, "shared" with Parksy and Grippitis as a punishment beer that was served up anytime one of us made a doubtful/negative/faithless/disloyal comment about the Seahawks. This is sheer aweful piss juice. But it worked-- Seahawks are on the way to the Superbowl!

A sugar coated corn chip. Is it absolute crap, no, but close. Iíd stop drinking if this is the best I could afford. Itís a gateway beer, a gateway to Natty light. Not to far to go.

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2013
40! Bottle: Drank out of the bottle, golden clear with a white head. Aroma is grassy. Taste is pure heaven in a bottle, burns a bit.

GT2 (8435) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 14, 2013
24oz lenincat mail order from Canada. Low bubble dark gold with large, rocky foam. Good retention and full lacing. Nose is sweet cinnamon apple, baked pear. Taste is super tannic, mealy, sweet, baked pear and apple. A bit too sweet and powdery. Stick with Mickey grenades.
