2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a mid gold with a decent head that faded to lace. Aroma was of sweet malts and grains. Taste was of malts, grain, and heavy alcohol. It seems very similar to LaCrosse lager which is produced at the same plant. Palate was decent. Overall, not too bad but nothing to write home about.

Can. Pours a clear yellow with a gold hue and a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet grains and corn with an odd light fruit note. Flavor is similar with sweet grains and corn up front with sweet light fruits in the finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear gold with a small white head. When the pour is fast and vigorous you get some soapy and floral yeast esters which settle quickly out into a corn and alcohol and red apple malt stew. Super sweet and sticky corn syrup / candy corn / pale malt extract syrup / other ingredients. surprisingly not hot or fusel or alcoholic or gross, not in that way. the malt is disgustingly cloying and syrupy and the red apple flavor / smell lingers for far too long.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Big fucken 40 @ MJ’s house. Clear golden pour with a white head. Corn, crappy apple cider, and booze. Grainy. Really sweet. Flavor is intensely sweet. Tons of apple cider, grain, and corn. A bit boozy, lots of grape, and sugar. Not the worst malt liquor, and at least it’s very high boost.

40 oz bottle, taste courtesy of the bear jew. Aroma is pears and something. Flavor is sour malts, not much aftertaste. Better than camo silver ice, but not as much booze power, so a worse value

7/16/13. Bottle of Side Pocket High Gravity labeled as 8.5% like the photo, not the 10.5% listed. Oh well, I’m lazy. Mostly clear amber golden pour with a small fizzy off-white head that is gone immediately. Sweet apples, grapes, some grass and hay. Light metallic flavor, plenty of grass, hay, apples, and grapes. Not nearly as miserable as some likkas, especially the Camo I tried earlier.

It is a cheap beer but it is bearable and gets the job done. For the price it is one of the better bargain beers.
