1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Son-of-a-bitch. So here goes, the malt liquor rating courtesy of my good friend Adam. From a 24 oz. can. "Best" before November 23, 2015. Pours yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma of corn syrup, sweet caramel malt, and floral hops. Taste is sweeter than most lagers but is balanced by the floral hops. Really not as bad as I had feared but by no means a good beer.

24 oz. can poured into a snifter. Itís actually very pretty in the glass. Nice clear pale gold color with a decent white head that shrinks in about 60 seconds. The aroma is rather sweet smelling with some apples and corn. Mild earthy hops in the background. The flavor is similar, but more malt based with hints of apple and high boost. Pretty dry for an 8.5% beer, but alcoholic with some very mild hints of earthy hops in the finish. Not too shabby. Iíd be really interested to try this next to some of the "craft" Malt Liquors, like the ones from Moonlight, Craftsman and Beachwood. Iím not sure this would be much worse.

Clear light yellow small head. big can. a little lemon, melon and kiwi. rough finish, but almost flavorless. certainly lots of adjuncts and itís sweet in the middle.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Once malt liquors start pushing up past eight percent, you never quite know what you will get. Sometimes they are reasonable things to drink and sometimes they taste like this. This has a foamy head and a golden color. It is a little sour and maybe a hint of cheese or something in the nose. Once you taste it you get a bit of blue raspberry flavoring a strange earthy quality and all kinds of alohol. This is interesting but ultimately terrible, like a hot young goth girl who wonít stop talking about suicide.

This malt liquor is, by my estimation, nothing more than the blue bull with more alcohol. It is unremarkable in aroma or appearance. The taste is sweet and grainy and the finish is less smooth than the best products in this class. I do not recommend.

(can - 24 oz) Gold pour with a fizzy head. Overly sweet corn and malt aroma. Flavor is sweet, like most malt liquors, with a much too sweet and alcohol finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The body had a light yellow color with very good clarity. This was a lighter than I was expecting but not out of place. On top the tall three finger head of bright white foam settles down to thin cap which actually hangs on well. Lacing is minimal and very slick. Its aroma is fairly light with pale cereal grain, grassy hay like hops and minimal sweet corn/vegetable notes. The flavor matches the aroma exactly with a fairly dry finish and offers it up in a light-medium body with a smooth but lively carbonation.

picked this up from some shitty gas station in Florence, Sc. Pours clear straw gold. Sits in my glass while I contemplate purchasing a year long pass to the US Airways Clubs. I probably won;t but I find it ironic. Premium product vs pure unadulterated Malt Liqour goodness. I will say this, if the travel continues it may be worth while. nose is pure malt and corn. taste follows. sweet, but not cloying. slight booze burn on finish. medium to full body.
