Yellow, no head. Faint grainy, fruity aroma. Surprisingly crisp palate. Sweetly fruity, then a crisp, but faint hop bite at the end. Surprisingly tasty. Sampled at Noogfest2

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Super Saver. The pour is medium cloudy golden with small white head. The aroma is pale malty, with some honey, hopcit. The flavor is pale malty, but with a somewhat dense palate, with more layered tastes than most malt liquors. More hopcitrus and apricot elements as it warms. Not a bad malt liquor, but not necessarily a very good beer, as such.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a golden color with light head and lacing. The nose is malty with light hops along with an adjunct note. The flavor is lightly sweet and malty, a bit harsh with alcohol and some corny flavors. Maybe a bit much aleish, but it works for what it is.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, floral (and maybe slightly herbal) malt aroma. Medium dull gold. I canít believe I paid $4.79 for this - mix a bottle of King Cobra with a bottle of St. Pauli Girl and this is what you get. I could have done that for $1.50. Clingy, flowery, sweet and bitter. Syrupy flavors. Best thing this had going was a velvety mouthfeel at times, with notes of marshmallow in a boozy finish. Burns a bit going down. Fished this out of a box at Market Square Liquors.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bottle from Winooski Beverage in Winooski, VT (May 2006-canít believe that here in distribution-poor VT Iím one of the first 10 raters of this), sampled from a brown paper bag under the railroad tracks....oh, ok from a St. Ambroise glass at fridge temp, snob that I am. Oily, translucent gold with a touch of bubbling, smallish white fizzy head decays quickly into a thin ring....sweet corn syrup and pale malt aroma, no hint of hops but for faint fresh grassiness....thick, syrupy body with little alcohol apparency, not quite cloying when cold but certainly sticky when warmer....honey-sweet palate with faint dry hop hints, mild finishing bitterness, and noticeable clean malty character....no real off aromas or flavors, no metallic aftertaste; while not quite as enjoyable as the DFH rendition, this does help to prove that a ML can be drinkable, at least. Whether thatís really valuable or not, I donít know.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This has a bit of pisazz, a hint of spicy mustard, some weet corny maltiness, and very clean hop flavors round out the flavor profile. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold, insignificant white head. Rich malt aroma, a bit sweet with some grains, subtle crisp hops, and a light herbal/floral thing going on. Same flavors with some nice, warming alcohol. A touch of anise in the finish. Medium, balanced body. Great malt liquor. Donít know the formula to figure the abv, but Iíd put it around 8 to 8.5%. Nice brew to have with a burger, dog, or some ribs. Spicy pizza, also.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pale golden, very translucent, moderate to small fizzly white head, light carbonation, spotty lacing.   Grassy nose, straw, and certainly not as corny or macroish as I thought it would be.   Seems pleasant enough.   A bit of cereal on the tongue, definitely grassy, slightly malty, finishing semi-sweet.   Not half bad, certainly better than I thought it would be.   Not quite as full bodied or flavorful as the Dogfish Head example, but this one is lighter and certainly quaffable for a Malt Liquor.   Likely better than any 40ozer I have had before.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The guy at World of Beer in Clearwater said this was one worth trying. Hmmmm...someting tells me he never cracked one. Poured with your basic translucent gold color...forced fluffy white head. Huge grainy/fruity nose...wow...maybe some skunk funk too. Iím not impressed at this point. I know itís a malt liquor so Iím not expecting a jewel but this is just not getting the job done. Mouthfeel isnít bad....thin, but tolerable...fairly smooth but the flavor really hurts..yep itís painful. Geez, hold this and give the bowl of flakes. DFH Liquor de Malt is far far better than this. Iím quite disappointed.
