daknole (10840) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle from Total Wine. Golden pour with a pretty decent sized white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, graham cracker, and some light hops. Flavor is sweet, grainy, and has some light hops. My bottle was very carbonated. So this beer is ok, but certainly not great.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle... Clear, yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Malty, grainy nose with lots of black pepper, corn and a touch of mint. Malty, sweet flavor, but spiced up decently with those crystal hops. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Finishes sweet and alcoholic with mild bitterness. Good malt liquor. Why craft brewers do this style, I have no idea. I guess itís fun for them. Why heavy metal bands do ballads, I have no idea. I guess itís fun for them. Both disciplines do a really good job at the crossover attempt, putting full-time swill and ballad makers to shame. Yep, I guess thatís fun. Iím a little tipsy... and having fun!

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle @ home. A touch hazy, golden yellow appearance with a white head. Sweet pale malty, a touch boozy nose. A touch fruity (apricot, grapefruit), pale malty flavor with some corn. Slight Czech Lager flavor. I really donít like Malt Liquors but at least this is drinkable.

KimJohansen (10414) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2008
Clear golden with medium off white head. Sweet aroma with malty and caramel notes. Sweet flavour with caramel, toasted malt and alcohol notes. Ends sweet with warming alcohol notes.

deyholla (9921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a a quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma is full of notes of grain, malts and corn. Flavor has sweet malt notes with grainy and corn undertones. It is a bit syrupy on the tongue.

DocLock (9709) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2006
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.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2007
Hazy yellow body with a small white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma is muted. Sweet dilute malt flavour, with industrial flavours of corn - malt that ruins some of the more pleasant notes. Average palate is more full than it has any right to be. Let us never speak of this again.

"the corn and yeast make this a rather unique, if not incredible beer. worth a try, but i drank it with mixed results. better than i thought it would be...weird sweet aftertaste (good)...lacking in body."

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Growler from Half-Time. Pours a very hazy golden amber without much of a head, so it already at least has a bit more going for it than the malt liquors I vaguely recall from my halcyon college days. Very sweet aromas, malt and corn mostly with a little bit of cardboard and alcohol. Remarkably sweet, reminding me of a fruit lambic, but without any of the lovely funk or tart acid that one would expect. Still not an unpleasant flavor. But way too sweet. Finishes with a little lemony acid, and still on the sweet side. A whole lot better than I had thought it would be.
