1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 24 Oz can..I have no idea why i bought this!
Appearance just the typical yellow lager..large bubbly white head.
Aroma..raw bread dough, with a small amount of nail varnish remover..
Taste..is kinda sweet, like sour apples though toned down..like an Apple Jolly Rancher. Some grainy bitterness slightly tempers the sweet/sour near the end..and hangs around unleasantly..as an alcohol like burn in the throat.
Palte thin and unconvincing.
hey what can i say its a Bums beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
I would concur with the VSL label, but after that this ML does not do much for me. The taste is has a hint of ’fuel’ in it and it goes down fairly smooth. The ABV becomes apparent rather quickly - especially if not drunk with any food. The stuff is cheap - $0.50 per 16 ozer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is rubbing alcohol and synthetics. Flavor is not quite as bad. Mostly non-descript. Not good, but I’ve had worse.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Super pale gold with a medium bright white head that is quickly and mostly diminishing. Aroma of tart, hard apple cider and fusel alcohol - very strange. Mild grain alcohol and slight apple flavor. Low carbonation, smooth palate. Finish is mildly sour with wheat and hay notes. Alcohol noticeable at tail end of finish, but not overly so. A rather subdued malt liquor, surprisingly drinkable (read: not horrible).

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has a bit of a fruity scent, clean taste with a bit of an alcohol aftertaste...not bad for a malt liquor

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Poured golden with a tall white head that settled quickly. Aroma of grain, citrus, and a light spice background. The flavor found citrus and light spices. Light body, crisp and dry, grain aftertaste.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very faint aroma of corn. Has the same golden color typical of mass American lagers. Pours a thick white head that sticks around a while. Sweet and dry with a surprisingly absent alcohol tinge. Slick but not bad on the palate. Finishes sweet, crisp, and bitter. At first I thought it was awful. By the end of the can I thought it was pretty tolerable. I suppose that’s a testament to the 8.5% abv. Nothing special here, folks. Just another cheap drunk.
