1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Creamed corn left out to sour, with just a little chemical corruption. Thin and chemically in the mouth, slightly repulsing my tongue. Healthy piss yellow with a firm white head.
Taste white sugar, dried grass, alcohol, apricot.

Sometimes as they say you must grab the bull by the horns. Well it is time to take on this bull like a fearless matador. The golden bull shines off the can as if to dare me to take him on. Bring it on Mr Bull. Stick me up on a post like a scarecrow to view the fields of corn. Ah the liquid corn fills the glass. This is a harsh customer. The gas station attendent fills my mouth with diesel fuel and unleaded gasoline. You pump me and leave me when you get your fill yeah. The sour lemons mix in with this corn filled mess to wreak havoc on my taste buds. Like that awkward first date that you accidently farted on, this beer is a little embarrasing. The can is oh so inviting but once you arrive at the party the host deficates on your head and calls you a NINNY! Oh the horrors of this brew could not be described even by such masters of the genre like Stephen King or Edgar Allen Poe. I must finish this before the warmth settles in. EGADS!

24 oz. can from Party Town. Poured light yellow color with a large white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate grainy aroma. Light body with a thin texture with soft carbonation. Light sweet grainy flavor with a light sweet short finish. Another cold wet alcohol brew with no character.

From a 24 oz. can. The body is medium gold. Urinal cakes are unpleasant enough to smell in the bathroom, even more so when that smell is in your beer. Besides urine, there is also some cake donut. The taste is sweet artificial honey flavored candy with some nasty notes of cologne. A nice diesel fuel finish complements this joy.

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.

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.
