Medium sweet flavour, sugary, with doughy white bread, some apples. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with ripe citrus, white bread, accents of melon.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can, 24oz. A big, creamy, white head forms over a clear, golden body. The aroma is lightly alcoholic, with sweet maltyness and a fruity touch. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming on the palate, quite smooth, and almost sickingly sweet. Way too warming towards the end. Yet another uninteresting malt liquor, I can’t imagine why people drink this. 130818

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Score! Straw colored pour with a big white head. Grass, malt, and corn. Apple esters, yeast, and a bit of biscuit, actually. Not bad. The flavor is quite sweet, but not bad, either. Heavy on the corn, but some actual malt and bread flavors. A bit of grass, some apple, yeast, and a little bit of paper.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours mediam gold with a frothy nearwhite head. Aromas of wheat, corn and a slight amount of fruit. Full bodied; creamy carbonation. Flavor is pretty clean, lightly sweet, and there’s a slight touch of light stone fruit in the finish. Not much heat. Just rated Earthquake HGL, and this is even better. :)

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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2016 Can at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. “Cellared” for a year or two by Leighton….. It pours clear gold with a thick white head. The aroma is musty, rather farty, sweetcorn, boiled veg, white bread & butter, graininess and nail varnish. The taste is crisp, bitter – sweet, boosty raw alcohol, paint stripper, tangy fruits, chemically/acetone vibe and apple with a dry, hot finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A bit rough and sweet, not the “very smooth” experience I was hoping for.
