1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
22 ounce bottle. Orange amber color with a disappearing white head. Sweet boozy toasted malt nose reminiscent of caramel and baked potato. Sweet malt flavor has one note; alcohol. This reminds me of iced tea mixed with grain alcohol. Ugh! What was I thinking? Stay away, unless you are looking for a cheap buzz and subsequent headache.

Pours a clear orangish amber, with moderate head. Aroma is caramel malt. light carbonation. Has a bit of burn, and noted alcohol presence. Somewhat sweet malty caramel taste. Definitely a hard hitter with the high ABV, but unique and very drinkable. Recommended.

Pours a bright orange color with a small head that goes away quickly.
The aroma is truly stomach turning, it’s basically caramel & cheap vodka. It’s the sort of aroma that warns you not to take a sip.
The flavor does have some defined maltiness, I guess... but it still just pretty much tastes like cheap booze and caramel mostly,,, and medicine.
It’s truly everything I hoped it would be...
It’s worth noting that after I had tried this beer, and decided that I thought it was almost unbearably awful... I still considered purchasing a bottle when I saw one for sale because of how awesome the label is.

Bottle during RBSG 2014 thanks to Frank. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of floral notes, corn, booze. Tastes of big booze. Light body with a dry finish. Pretty gross.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle shared by Frank at the RBSG presidential suite fart/bottle share. Thanks, Frank...I guess. Pours a clear yellow-orange color with no head. This is really boozy, like corn flakes soaked in everclear. Sugar, fake fruit juice, almost a high-fructose corn syrup thing going on. Abrasive, sweet, and boozy. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation. Ugh. Terrible. The human body is not designed to drink a bottle of this.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Frank. Sort of orange in color with a white head. Nose is extremely sugary and sweet. Tons of apple, grape juice, and corn syrup. A bit of cardboard and booze. Flavor is cloying and boozy. Tons of paper and cardboard astringency. Really heavy on the sugary apple and grape juices. Rough stuff.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Taster from a bottle at RBSG hotel room. Musty BO and caramel malt aroma. Clear orange color. Minimal head. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Light soft. Some burn. Moderate sweet taste, light burn, light bite. Not as bad as expected. Hides alcohol reasonably well, considering. Solid for what it is.
