Even more alcohol than the 7.5, but they still havenít figured out a way to make it taste any better! Better luck next time, guys.

"Beer #2 in the 40oz. head to head taste off. it sucks and thatís all you got to know but I guess here are some reasons it sucks. First reason why this sucks this is only the second beer of the night and I already got a hangover and have a uncontrollable erg to beg for change. Plus this taste like fake skunk not the real skunk you get with Euro lagers and is ungodly sweet. The one surprising thing is for this massive alcohol content it does seem to go down smooth. This sucks!!"

2009 Can - Pours yellow with a large, lasting off white head...aroma is lagered corn, dry malt...flavour is much sweeter than expected, slightly medicinal...alcohol is rather hidden, canít believe I just typed that...I feel the gravity seeping out of my pores and can hear the colors...

It looks, smells and tastes like some kind of fuel, but the high percentage makes it all good. Olde English tastes much better though, and i could only find this in a 22 ounce size.

This shit literally smells like vomit. Thatís a bad sign right off the bat. Ugly fake orange pour with thick, phonyish fluffy egg white head that screams artificial additives. Cough medicine and gasoline flavor that coats the mouth and ruins your evening even hours after youíve dumped this slop down the toilet. STRONG alcohol burn in the after-taste. You can feel this in your chest as it goes down to your poor unsuspecting guts. Iím not kidding: Do not volunteer for this abuse! Stay away!

(can - 24 oz) Bought at some convenience store on Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Clear orange with not much head. Aroma is rice, corn, alcohol, gasoline, and some random sweetness. Flavor is potent and full of corn and sweetness. Lingers and is very cloying. Hurtful.

Bomber...oh yeah a bomber of this stuff. From the Utah State Store. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. Itís that kind of head a cheap lager has; tiny white bubbles, foam and froth. The aroma is adjuncts, corn and rice, some sweeter notes. The taste is generally smooth, some skunk, light adjuncts, rubbing alcohol also. Not hot, but oddly alcoholic. Bad.

Wow...This high gravity beer pours in college students plastic cups everywhere, they aren’t complaining so why should i. Honestly at least you get more bang out of these.

Can somewhere in Oregon, summer ’08.
Pours a lively, clear yellow with a nice white head and an aroma of semi-retarded corn flakes and bran. Tastes like cheap corn liquor syrup. Avergage mouthfeel. Face it: You only drink this stuff to get fuschnickered.
