Pours a mid-copper body with some dandruff particulates under a fast white head. Wanted to rate and drink this fast (while still cold) knowing this could become a real beast as it warms. (And I was right.) Aromas of big, raw alcohol off the top of sugary caramel with a lemongrass twist. Mid-bodied, a little sticky and totally sugary to the mouth. Alcohol presents mildly at first in the flavor, until it warms and becomes a big issue, almost like a high ABV wine. The remainder of the flavor is a ham-handed blend of highly-sugared caramel with splashes of tart, grassy Continental hops and sour grapes. I saved the last sip until it approached room-temperature and, yes... at that point this became a real challenge to finish. Overall, not a total failure, but I’d recommend you split a bottle amongst 3 or 4 friends while the alcoholic flavors are still muted by the cold. ~~~~~~ "Pint" bottle from Kenwood Liquors, Homer Glen, IL, purchased approx. 2 weeks ago.

Ok. It pours a bright gold color. Has a straight up bad liquor copper aroma. It brings an almost gag reflex with the smell. Taste like a liquid penny. A bad aftertaste. Just not good. After a few sips I just wanted to throw up every time I brought it close to my senses. In no way did I want to even finish half of my pour. The definition of a drain pour.

Pours a copper color with small fizzy head and no lacing. Aroma candy sweetness, yeast and booze. Taste of candy sweetness, bit of malt and spice. Odd bitterness and a medicine aftertaste. Fairly light body, smooth and boozy. Bought it as the label caught my eye....should have known better.

Bottle at Andy’s for New Years Eve. Pours a clear gold (triple bock, what?) with a thin white head. Grainy and papery on the nose, rather sweet. Papery, grainy, sweet and weird. Warm sweet alcohol. Grain and paper all through it. Meh.

jredmond (5260) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber body with light white lacing. Aroma is sweet bread, candy and malt. Mouthfeel is pretty dull with notes of sweet malt, toast, corn cereal and very light booze. Tastes like a cheap, strong lager.

Sweet and pungent, but no alcohol burn surprisingly. Heavy grain presence in aroma and taste. Only one reason to drink this ... to get drunk. Mission accomplished! Sweet and grainy....but relatively smooth

500 ml bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a mostly clear dark gold/amber color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and there isn’t much lacing at all. The brew smells like bready/grainy malt, sugar and booze. Unfortunately the taste is similar to the aroma. I think it tastes mostly like sugary booze, with some grainy malt noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s syrupy and coating with low/moderate carbonation. This certainly wasn’t one of the better brews I’ve had lately. But I also finished the bottle without a problem so it wasn’t exactly awful either. $2.49 a bottle.
