1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 24 fl. oz. (US) can coded B93 8038B. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of alcohol mostly and maybe a little grass and metal. Watery. The taste is not as smooth as they advertise. I donít notice any hops or malts...just the alcohol. Yes thatís it. Itís pungent alcohol that leaves an aftertaste. Not a very good brew but in general I am not fond of any of the high gravity lagers that are out there. However this tall boy can was only a buck at the corner convenience store.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very smart marketing technique towards beer fans here...a tallboy 24oz can, 8.5% and "very smooth lager" right on the can. Wow! But not really! A little harsh for me, but then again itís 8.5% and a lager. Not much flavor going on, and it became a little rough after each sip. Not very attractive; no head and overly carbonated. It should read: "N.V.S.L" for "not very smooth lager". But it is worth a try.

funky metallic flavor dominates almost as much as the alcohol burn, better than most malt liqs. but very smooth lager is is a bout as far as reach, as saying brittny spears is a virgin

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Going for the good stuff here - a tall boy can, called a "high gravity lager" on the label. I recall the old Schlitz, the beer that made Milwaukee famous, but that brewery is long gone. This stuff is made by Miller, who must have purchased the name. The brew looks pretty good - gold color with a decent head. Bland aroma with a hint of motor oil. Fairly sweet, cornlike flavor with a touch of herbs. The high alcohol content is masked well. It is not flavorless or burdened with a metallic taste the way some cheapo beers are. This stuff is not too bad, actually - it exceeded my low expectations.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
24 ounce can picked up in a sleazy liquor store on Chicagoís southwest side - More drinkable than many a malt liquor. Canít fault the looks, a bright pale lager yellow with a creamy head that hangs around quite a while. Rather soft aroma - a grainy sweetness and creamed corn. Hot on the tongue, the only time the alcohol really presents itself until burping later on. The taste matches the nose, except that a touch of tin is added at the finish. If further in the dumps than I am today, I could see drinking a forty-ouncer of this out of a brown paper bag. Provided it was real, real cold when I bought it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 710 ml. can, coded freshness on the bottom of the can, an updated logo with the new Schlitz malt liquor bull, sampled in a lager glass.
L: Clear golden yellow appearance with a surprising large white head of frothy foam, the head has a mighty firmness, not the usual whiff of a head that you see on the majority of malt liquors, there is even a splotchy curtain of lace ringing the glass, color me impressed.
S: White all-purpose flour, dry grain and a hint of cornmeal, framing the edges is wafting lemon corny alcohol, just the lightest of solvent scents . Iíll give this some deserved credit, it doesnít have that sulphuric manure smell that a lot of other malt liquors emit.
F&T: This possesses a nice soft creamy crispness, giving the body some heftiness, making this quite easy to consume. Sugary, grainy malts with a touch of dried maize, there is really nothing in the way of an offensive taste, once again, surprising for a malt liquor. This contains the mildest of alcohol bites, if it wasnít for the alcohol warmth in the back of throat, I would have never guessed itís true strength. A light macro lager lemony flavor in the middle, this finishes dry with a little generic hop spiciness coming out, the ending has a nice cleanliness to it, upping the drinkability for me personally. As it warms it does acquire some solvent/fusel alcohol harshness as all malt liquors do, needs to be consumed as cold as possible.
This is actually a fairly malt liquor. In few ways this reminds me of some of the better pale Euro Strong Lagers Iíve tried. If you only have a dollar-fifty in your pocket, you wouldnít be going wrong by picking this, youíll even get some change back, sweet.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
24 oz. can. Pours pale gold with white frothy head. Aroma is corny pale malt, mild hopcitrus. Tastes pretty horrid, primarily of corny pale malt, plus late hops and some metallic thiols which gets very sticky and offputting the more it warms. I didnít finish this one, and poured about 16 ounces down the drain.

a fairly good looking beer, very bubbly, clear yellow quickly dissipating white head. nose of grain and sweet malt. the flavor is grainy and sweet. the corn syrupy sweetnes becomes cloying in the finish. another macro clunker in a 24 oz can. even after warming, still cloyingly sweet. some kind of metallic aftertaste after a while.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 24 oz. can. Pours a golden color with almost no head. Aroma is of fruit, grain and alcohol. The taste is sort of sweet and of fruit and grain. The alcohol is barely noticeable. This beer is easily one of my favorite malt liquors. It is smooth, clean and refreshing. Plus it is dirt cheap. At about $1 a can, you canít go wrong with this. An excellent brew that tastes pretty good and is easy to get drunk on.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
One of the very worst Iíve ever tried, and Iíve tried many malt liquors. It seems to be a bad sign every time thereís a noble image of a large, angry animal emblazened on the can. Tastes like the drain from the Burger King dumpster next to the Greyhound station in downtown Macon, Georgia after a brief July rainshower. Or the tap water in San Jose, California.
