2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper-bronze colour. A little bit spicy in the nose with some fusels and caramel. Flavour is caramel, but with some spicy dryness in the finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Amber colour with a thick, sticky off-white head... after taking a look, this beer went off the rails. Aroma of caramel and pennies. Flavour is God-awful, showing the classic three C’s of cheap beer, caramel, cardboard, and copper. Finished with a bit of sweetness that became cloying. Pretty shitty brew.

This was one of two drain-pours I tried this evening. I saw it coming-- both beers are available in cans only, which is never a marker of quality. The only interesting thing about this beer was its amber-orange colour. Everything else was harsh and crappy.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Vegetal cabbage-like DMS dominates the aroma. Clear deep blond/copper coloured body is topped by a fizzy white head that recedes rapidly to a thin partial cover. Sweet notes of toasted cereal grains with plenty of cabbagey DMS and light finishing bitterness. Lasting sweetness in the aftertaste. Watery, light body with very strong, hard bubbled aggressive carbonation. Stem glass. Fridge temperature. Can (BCLS at Kingsgate (Jul-07).

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2003 Light white foam covers a food colouring enhanced watery copper-coloured beverage. Appearance entices me to test the aroma, which is a strange alcohol centered dirty malt concotion. Light body and almost no flavour. I guess you get what you pay for. Not a drain pour but...a plastic and metallic aftertaste.

(Can) Purchased at the BC Liquor Store in Oak Bay, Victoria. Funny I had this one side by side with TNT 8% and this one was more of the nail polish, corn-maltedness of the two. Pretty bland beer but I expected no differently from something SO marketed to the masses...

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
355ml can pours a pale golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is grainy malts with some grassy hops. Taste is malty sweet with some skunk and light hop bitterness. Just a horribly undesirable beer and not worth drinking. I still don’t know why I keep doing this to myself.

The only reason to drink it is the ’bang for you buck’ theory due to the higher alcohol content. Gassy,fizzy malt liquor

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
355ml can. Colour is deep gold, head is slightly off white, small and short lasting. Sweet aroma with corn notes. Flavour is sweet and grainy, caramel notes, metallic like hop finish and faint grass trace. Carbonation is high, fizzy, body is light and watery. Alcohol surprisingly didn’t jump out, but still not great.

For the record, and someone may actually get back to me on this one, but I believe this is the first time in history that this had been poured into a glass - not drank in an alleyway or used as a party trick to be crushed by the oversized deformed tit of a unbangable chick. Appearance is awsome! Bright orange / amber, good sized off-white creamy cap that left good ropy lacing. That is where the happiness ends. Should I let this get warm? For the sake of doing a legitimate review of probally the cheapest brew available locally? Yes. I did. It just got horribly worse, like I was suprised, but what the hell... Oversweet apples, dust, grain, candy, and most importantly for all you welfare cases out there who are reading this on the internet at the library - ALCOHOL. Taste is just horrible. Terrible spicy alcohol. Watery like my eyes at this point. Chemicals - household, I assume - possibly the same ones used at the local meth lab. Mouthfeel is slippery (no speculation here), malty. Harsh bitterness that cause hair to sprout on my retinas. Wonderful stomach cooker too. How toxic would the regurgitation of this be? Level 7? My body hates me. Truly disgusting. The homeless should be embarrased if caught drinking this. As bad as I expected if not worse.
