2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draft at the source with Paul. After drinking Vermont beers for the weekend this was pretty harsh on the palate. Pours a clear golden body with no head; very light white lacing. Mouthfeel is sweet, thin and boozy with notes of dry, abrasive alcohol, spice, grain and sweet alcohol. It was tough to get this down. They do offer a shandy version with added lemonade, but I’d rather just have lemonade.

Bottle. Pours copper with white head. Nose/taste of sweet malt, corn and light white pepper. Mild lactose sourness. Medium body. Not bad.

Thanks to Alex... low carbonation, dark gold... sweet with a unique alcohol finish... the taste is really dead, almost boring but easy to drink so that could be a good thing

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Awesome 40oz plastic capped bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded quickly. The nose is quite a bit more pleasant than most Malt Liquors, some toasty malt, corn, and a light amount of alcohol. The flavor is still pretty "authentic" to the classics of the style though. Wet soggy grains and corn with a minimal alcohol flavor at least. A good bit more tolerable than most, but still not a beer I’d purchase with regularity. Glad to have a go at it all the same.

A - Pours a clear pale-golden color with just a touch of fizzy white head. The head quickly reduces to a ring leaving behind just a tad of lacing.
S - Aroma is very sweet, with the sweet malty aroma really dominating. There is also just a touch of apple and booze mixed in as well.
T - Starts off with a lot of sweetness coming from the carmel malt and also some corn syrup. Through the middle a touch of bitterness pops up but is quickly overtaken by the strong sweetness that stays around. The finish is the same carmel sweetness with just a touch of hop bitterness that lingers for a bit.
M - Fairly light bodied with a moderate-low amount of carbonation. There is also a real syrupy feel to the beer that really comes through in the aftertaste. It almost feel thick. However, it is still fairly crisp.
D - Fairly drinkable. The sweetness can come to be a bit much (considering it is a 40oz), but that being said it is a fairly pleasant malt liquor. The touch of hop taste really does help cut the bitterness a tad which is very nice.

Malt Liquor Appreciation Day 2011; 40 oz. bottle; thanks to dogfish120love for the trade over a year ago; SO this has been refrigerator aged to near perfection; pours clear, dark gold with thin white head; aromas of stale apples, thin malt, dry honey; grassy corn and dry cereal; pretty bland overall to me and nothing really jumps out; perhaps due to the lack of cancer causing chemicals, craft malt liquors can’t age for decades like the BMC ones w/o any flavor drop off

Nose of corn, sweet cereal grains, lightly fruity, a touch tangy. Pours golden orange, thin head, lots of floaties. The flavor is grainy and corny with light grassy hops, a touch of tangy fruit, more sweet grain. Rather authentic stuff here. Nice!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy orange pour, fizzy white head. Some corn and grainy malt in the aroma, touch of grass. Taste has notes of corn and cereal, with a touch of hops and some sweetness. Overall, not bad for malt liquor.

40. Poured hazy medium golden with a nice, looser-bubbled white head.. looked fairly well in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet, syrupy corn syrup, cereal, and pale malts, with light floral and vanilla accents.. fairly well balanced and not too strong. The flavor found ground corn, pale malts, and lighter fruity notes at the core.. more peppery notes and some tangy notes around.. finished slightly warm with flaked corn and peppery notes. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. balance was solid, and this was quite drinkable. I’d drink it again.

Thanks Jason. The beer pours to a hazy golden body with a thin white head. Sexy glowing vibrancy. The aroma is average malts and some light grassy hops. The flavor is sweet corn and barley with some grassy hops. The palate is medium-light bodied. A little grainy.
