2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml bottle labeled as Premium Lager but at 12%ABV. Medium copper pour, thin white head that sticks around a while with a trace of lacing. Aroma is sweet and sticky with some maple syrup notes, a hint of cotton candy. Flavor is decidedly sweet as well with some molasses, a hint of cotton candy, some maple syrup. Mouthfeel is thick enough. 12% ABV is deceptively hidden. Decent.

Like a previous rater, the label on my bottle calls this a premium lager. Bottle pour into lager glass. The cheap price and the high ABV made me apprehensive and the orange-gold color and lack of carbonation did not help.
It was not as bad as I feared. Very slick, heavy palate; sweet corn taste with a dull alcohol finish. I agree with the rater who dubbed this an imperial malt liquor.

Aside from having what is possibly one of the greatest labels I’ve ever seen, there’s not a lot that’s good with this beer. There is a lot of sweetness in this one without getting that weird lager taste. Golden color with no appreciable head.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I have to wonder if my beer is actually a new twist on this beer. It has After on top, Before below, and it says Premium Lager and 1%, which doesn’t match with the rest of this. Looks like most of the rest of these beers. Boy, the headache is her, and I still have another beer from these guys to go tonight. Tomorrow is going to be tough. :(

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Pours clear, deep orange with a minimal head. It smells of indeterminate malts and alcohol. The flavor is really sweet with obvious alcohol presence and a warming finish. This really isn’t a very good beer. I expected terrible though. It’s not terrible.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Triple Bock, eh? Doesn’t look like a bock beer of any kind - it is hazy neon orange, like an electric plastic pumpkin. Syrupy fruit and booze nose. Tastes overly sweet and even tart. It might be bitter, but that’s more likely just alcohol. I would never say a beer has too high a volume content, but this one lacks enough other elements to support it boozy aura. More like a poor Belgisch-pretender than German lager. Still better than most big brand malt liquors though, and that’s where this one belongs.

This beer. My god. Gold pour with a big head, lots of bubbles...Aroma is very grainy, some grapes, a bit of floral hops maybe? Flavor is fun, minus the alcohol. Ok maybe it’s not so great. Huge alcohol in the lingering malty finish, very sweet too. This one was a bit rough even for me.
