1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nice orange coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of golden delicious apples, apricots, hops, a bit of malt and some honey. Medium-bodied; Super...I mean SUPER strong taste of malt, alcohol, metal, blood and more alcohol. This tastes like a very cheap vodka up front, then fades to more ’beery’ flavours. Aftertaste shows some malt, a tiny bit of hops - and you guessed it, more metal, blood and ALCOHOL! I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased (haven’t ever seen this in Washington DC at all) at Joe’s Place in Oklahoma City (Norman), Oklahoma on 15 November 2007.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Who can resist the lure of a bottle with a hang tag promoting it’s 9.5% abv - I know that I can’t!!! Picked it up in Lombard, IL at Famous Liquor. Flavor resides somewhere in between maibock and malt liquor, sugar sweet maltiness and dusty pepper hops - it’s actually got a nice flavor to it, but there’s also a bit of alcohol burn.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This $3.29 bottled brew from a bottle shop in Frankenmuth, MI was marked lot L55639 and poured a medium sized head of frothy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light yellow-orange colored body and a fair lacing. The strong aroma was dough and malt hop. . The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops and vinous. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours a clear straw color with a huge sized white head that goes away quickly. A surprisingly light malty aroma with no detection of any corn, and a light caramel note as well. Taste is alcohol bite, malt notes, some lvery subtle licorice flavors, and a light caramel note as well. Palate is lightly sticky and thin, Overall, It’s OK for a E strong Lager. More light a malt Liqour if anything, but a good malt liqour.
