Decent taste, better than most malt liquors. A little pricy and not that strong. But shit, got me so hammered I lost my wallet. Ain’t that bad!

Poured from a 650 ML can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The beer has a nice malt and grass smell. The beer is a fairly dark golden color with a small white head. Nice mild malt and grass flavor with a semi-dry finish.

nimbleprop (6063) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Big 17oz can at Daikaya Ramen in DC. Pours a clear, deep gold with some frothy white head. Nose of corn, rice, yeast. Flavor is the same, lots of corn, some grain finally. Slick finish.

3 July 2015, can. Smiles like sweet rice lager. Thin body and mildly fizzy. A bit sweet, rice malt with a hint of bitterness. Decent n

Drank a can of this one yesterday. A nice darker coloring than normal, a somewhat watery smell and taste. Some bread and grass on the taste, some Tastes a little earthy too. Not a lot going on for the aftertaste, fades quickly. It does have that pleasant dryness to the taste, and is palate cleansing, so it matches well with Japanese food especially sushi. Very drinkable though, and quite refreshing. Also, you won’t feel the alcohol so that’s either good or bad depending.

Atom (1818) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle pours a golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of corn, malt, barley, with a hint of vomit and ash tray. Bitter hops really jump on the palate, not in a good way, opening it up for corn and cardboard malt vomit. Ugh, I’d get more satisfaction drinking a stale beer with cigs in it.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Canadian brewed 22oz can, consumed on 12th May 2015 in Southern California where it was bought. Disappointed to be honest, bland and uninteresting in my opinion. The clear yellow body had no head worthy of mention and although well carbonated on the palate it looked flat and sad, Slight grainy nose and taste with a mild sweetness from those grains, glad I shared the can with my Son-in-Law (who did not enjoy it either).

I got the Canadian product. It is a typical pale yellow lager with a thin white head and modest carbonation. The aroma is light and grassy. The taste is light, clean, and slightly sweet. The finish is clean and short and the overall impression is an unremarkable one, though the beer reminded me strongly of Royal Challenge.
