From the can. Hugely sweet corny nose. Some metallic notes. Apple cidery. Can is cool, but not that cool. Drinks very sweet. Full of corn and apple cider. Becomes rather boozy as it warms.

Very sweet, corn, metallic, and grass. Unfortunately, following a tasting of barleywines and impstouts, this is a horrible dissapointment. About one point shy of dreadfull.

24 oz can- Sample- Better head than expected, still horrible medicine flavor. All I need is a paper bag and some old scummy clothes and i am set.

24 oz can. Wow, Iím surprised this got even this high. I was expecting bottom of the barrel stuff, but itís not as bad as some other beers Iíve so far rated. Actually poured a nice head. Aroma is of corn. Tastes metallic. All in all, pretty horrible, but not as bad as I was expecting. Now, whereís my paper bag?

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!
