2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
40 oz. clear glass bottle. Pours a fizzy, poorly retained white head, over a clear light gold (SRM 4) body........nose is corn, light colored fruits (pear, apple), sugar, alcohol, no hops......taste is sweet, with light corn, hints of pear, apple, cereal malts, finishing with lingering alcohol sweetness, no hops, balance to the adjuncts.....mouth feel, light body, alcohol burn, fizzy carbonation. This is a very simple alcohol bomb, with almost minimal aroma and flavor. The adjunct used were most likely corn based on the residual sweetness. It does not have any major fermentation flaws (no fusels), but the residual alcohol and sugar sweetness are utterly dominant. Perhaps hops would balance this out a bit. However, the clear bottle, suggests no unmodified hops were used, as it was not light struck, so, were real hops used? Or is this just a different type of fermented beverage? BJCP 5/2/9/4/5

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Heed this warning: this beer will leave you a broken and tired man. It’s golden w/ a head that’s huge and fomy. It has a bit, gross blue-raspberry nose but in no way is this pleasant like a Jolly Rancher or something might be. It is a bit sharp and sour w/ lots of acetone and alcohol off flavors. It’s oddly bland when you taste it but sweet and sticky and just gets worse and worse as you drink more of it eventually taking on the character of cider vinnegar and (actual) crap. I recommend that you do not drink this.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
710mL black labeled can courtesy of Aaron. Thanks! This Malt Liquor goodness iced down to near freezing pours with a clear watery gold body that supported a ten second head that fell back to a weak ring of light tan bubbles. The modest aroma offers up sugary table sugar, sweet thin apple and faint chemical booze. The taste is similar with sugary sweetness and then moving into thin apple sweetness and another faint fruity note that seems vaguely lime like. Toward the finish it picks up modest boozy chemical off notes that are the hallmark of the style. Really cold this isn’t overly sweet but it is plenty estery and then mildly boozy.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lower boost fucken 40 @ MJ’s. Clear pale golden pour with a big white head. Corn and rice kind of aroma on this. Apple cider, grape, and sugar. Quite sweet. Not much noticeable booze, though. Flavor is sweet grape, apple cider, and plenty of corn. Grainy sweetness. Maybe even some malt. Not fucken bad.

What up wit it. Gold with a small white head. I’ll be damned if this isn’t mildly hoppy and pleasantly dry. Crisp finish. Well done!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I got a single 16oz can of this from Woodman’s in Janesville, WI in summer 2012.
Pours a cloudy amber orange color with a slight but fast diminishing head. Scent is fairly strong with sweet, cheap grains. Taste is surprisingly sweet and mellow which is a very dangerous combination at 10.5% as stated on my can of malt liquor not “malt ale.” Drinks very smooth and easy. Not much to the flavor but still rather good for a cheap malt liquor designed to get you drunk fast. If you into malt liquors, it’s worth a try for just over $1.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
10.5% wide mouth 40oz sourced in green bay wisconsin. this is indeed ’high gravity malt liquor’, not the ’ale’ labeled in other states with other ABVs. aroma is interesting bouquet of alcohol/infection esters: banana is prevelant with a distinct watermelon note. appearance is crystal clear pale straw with good carb and aerated head that dissipates quickly. flavor is intense corn whose stickiness really lingers. burning sweetness and fuesels almost act as sourness and you pray for the flavor to evaporate from your palate. the only other remedy is to continue drinking, and samples from the bottle rather then a glass are far more acceptable. super HG malt liquors like this are always interesting in my estimation, the aromas alone are something to really experience. despite whatever stereotypes one feels exist with the product itself, avoidance is really skipping an important chapter in the world of beer.

Thought this was the worst beer I have ever had. Strong rubbing alcohol taste with aftertaste of metal. The only thing going for it is that it is cheap and will get you drunk.
