1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Part of an 8-pack of "International Beer Selections". The whole 8-pack was a bit of a dud, but this one was the only strong lager of the bunch. Itís hard to find a quality malt liquor (does such a thing exist?), and this proves no exception. Corny aroma and taste, but the alcohol is well integrated I guess (I didnít have to wince upon swallowing).

Bottle 7%. Looks like a standard macro beer. Gold with a rapidly sinking head. Smells like malt liquor without the North American gasoline edge. Cold, it is pretty much flavourless. As it warms there is some adjunct sweetness and then some weird flavours appear.

terrible plastic aroma. Pours a light yellow, minimal head. No redeeming qualities to speak of. Repugnant corn/plastic taste. Rotting compost. Avoid.

Fresh beer. Can. Gold lager with average carbonation, minimal head. Plastic, infected aroma, slightly citric, faint malty nose. Awful in short. Light, thin bodied with light alcoholic scent. Saying that this beer was poor would be nice of me. Salamat ate Abigail .

Smells like paint thinner, yellow, tiny white head. Has almost no taste? Light bodied, thats all. Wow! Reading the ingredients, hops were not mentioned. Thanks Radek.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can (355ml). Shared with DougShoemaker, Radek, "R" and others - courtesy of Radek. Clear light gold with a head. Aroma of sulphury diaper contents - astoundingly vile. Minimal flavour to this - corn, vegetal grain, sugary, faint but harsh alcohol burn - watery, harsh mouthfeel - it might get you drunk fast, but you should consider Lysol instead, it smells better. This isnít even a new country for me!!

you know how sometimes you see a beer labeled "malt liquor" and you think to yourself, "oh, maybe itís just a legal thing where they have to label it as malt liquor because the alcohol content is high".
not this time.
itís malt liquor, and itís terrible.
fie on you, whole foods, for tempting me.

Bought from Chinatown. Why am i such a sucker for something new, saw this in Woo Sang and bought 2 ! ! Tasteless flat and has absolutely no redeeming values to speak of what so ever.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden and mostly flat with a small, off-white head that settles to a thin film. Aromas of sulphur, sweet, dry malt and green grape. Do I detect cheap white wine in the flavor? Yes... prickly in the mouth with a buttery, vinous sourness on top of a lightly malted background. Has potential, but I didnít like it.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 I tried this again recently and liked it a little more. Light gold body with a thin white head. The aroma had some tomatoes, apples and potatoes. Lots of vegetable character. The taste was pretty horrid with sweet turnips and some old carrots. A nasty and slightly metallic taste. This is pretty bad.
