Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2012
24 oz can from NH Cumberland Farms, because this crazy gangsta can was too much to pass by. Sweet malty ad corn syrup aroma does an okay job covering the high test backbone of the beer. Looks like many lighter lagers. Tastes candy sweet with a hint of rotten apples, and of course alcohol. It is slick but sharp, with a crisp and drying finish . When I saw it the assumption was that it would rate terribly here, but this oneís not bad. There are far worse malt liquors out there, and most of them of from the state of Wisconsin as well.

Jacksonville, Fl. - Kangaroo Convenience Store - somewhere off of I-295. Big, mean looking black 24 oz can. Light golden pour, with a pithy white head. Slight wet paper bag aroma with some grassy notes and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is not as deplorable as expected - this is not your Dad’s malt likkah from the ’70s. Some syrupy sweetness of course, but misses that that clenching texture and flavor that many MLs have. Hint of honey sweetness with a heavy alcohol back end. While not harsh - definitely not for the faint of heart or stomach. Like its moniker - VSL - all in all a very smooth lager.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
Pale golden with a fast fading white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with a bit of corn character as well. There may even be a kiss of earthy hop character. Lightly fruity flavour. Itís not all that bad really. May be one of the better of the high gravity ones.

After a real bad day, finding that I am reduced to scraping change out my car door, I bought one. Not a lager, but it made the rest of my day go better. If short on funds I would do it again.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Can: Clear golden pour with a strong well retained white film of head. Corn syrup and fusels dominate the nose. Sweet dextrose and honey- very sweet. The body has creamy carbonation- actually a fairly rounded palate, but with a sweet flavor. Lots of corn syrup, fusels, some dough notes. Itís actually quite clean, but with nearly no bitterness to balance the maltose. Itís drinkable when ice cold, but other than that itís just another fusel-ridden and overly sweet malt liquor.

Has a bit of a fruity scent, clean taste with a bit of an alcohol aftertaste...not bad for a malt liquor

Aurelius (4106) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Sometimes, when you go to the ends of the earth to pick up a new rating, you come along treasures such as this. $3.49 per 4 pack of8.5% ABV tallboys. Aroma-wise, it actually smelled slightly Belgian. Good, rampant golden bull on the can. Latin inscription behind bull, adding class to the beverage and earning the appearance a solid 2. Lord knows Iím not going to pour this into a glass for fear of etching. Metallic, fuddled tasting - not too bitter. Medium body, musty aftertaste. Stands proudly with similar malt liquor offerings. Billís Ghetto-mart, South Magnolia.

24oz can from stfun for FBW hunger games challenge. Thanks! Pours a clear gold with some fizzy white head. Aroma of some slightly rotton apples, grains, some cotton candy, and a little lakewater. It honestly kinda smells like one of the local apple orchards in the fall...weird. taste is light sweet. Cotton candy and fermenting green apples with a little cereal grain. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky but still quite smooth texture. Lively carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Overall, not bad. Ive had much worse out of this catagory.

24 ounce can. Pours a clear medium golden color with a large white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of strong corn, grain, mild cider apples. The taste is even stronger corn, sugar and not much else. Medium bodied. Theyíre right, it drinks pretty smooth.
