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.

Smells of sweet corny garbage juice but in almost the nicest way possible. Taste is metal laced corn, added sugar, but the booze doesnít show up massively. Not good.

2009 vintage can from stfun won during free beer week for eating way too much tacobell. Poured into my favorite schlafly snifter. Pours a clear, medium gold with almost 2 fingers of white frothy head. Aroma of green apples, grape skin, cotton candy and a little hay. Taste is light sweet. Cotton candy and apple with a little gasoline, metal, and sweat...hmmm. surprisingly light bodied with a creamy texture. Very soft carbonation but a long warming finish. Overall, not that good. Oddly enough though, still better that most "light" beers out there.

40. Served super cold. Aroma: Bready cereals. Slightly skunked. Metallic. Appearance: Clear light gold. Instantly disappearing head. Taste: Boozy bread. Palate: Light fizz, really watery. Overall: Man this is bad. Really, really bad.

16 oz can pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste pretty much just malts and grain. The only thing I will give iris it's price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"HG means "High Gravity," a brewing industry term associated with high-quality beer." No, you arenít seriously gonna try and pull that BS with me are you? Let me tell you this, if a beer is aggresively marketed as "high gravity" thatís another way of saying, "This is some cheap boozy garbage that will get you hammered if youíre low on cash but wanna get a buzz going." Period. End of story. This beer.....I mean what can I say that you probably donít already know? Horrifying? Gross? Disgusting? All appropriate terms. Total swill.

Clear 40 with a screw top. Drank some out of the 40 and poured a bit into a red solo cup for the rate. Gold colour, foamy head. Nose is sweet and corny with a whiff of rough alcohol. Taste is sweet, corny and boozy. Medium body, less carbonation than expected. Smooth for a malt liquor.
