bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 6, 2011
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours gold with a very transient fizzy white head. Sweet cooked sugar aroma. Med body. Flavor is fairly malty. Tastes like some sort of cooked sugar desert. Far from disgusting. No trace of fusil oils. But it’s totally lacking in bitter.

kramer (4896) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2010
22 oz bottle. Tasted as a part of an 18 beer Malt Liquor blind tasting. Pours a clear pale gold body with minimal to no head. Pretty offensive nose, mostly veggies with just a little malt and some light alcohol. Tastes of corn and rice with cooked celery and light to moderate sweetness. Sticky and clingy body with soft carbonation. Pretty terrible. I was expecting a lot more from this one, it was one of the two craft Malt Liquors in the tasting (with Rogue Dad’s Little Helper) and it sucked just as bad as the rest of them. The Rogue beat the crap out of this one.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Golden straw, vibrant, lively carbonation, moderate frothy white head, rather nice lacing.   Cereal nose, faint pale fruit, some corn but much less than other examples.   Rather fruity on the tongue.   Cereal, but not heavy.   Clean, better than I expected.   Not alcoholic, but tiz a little warming.   Corn becomes more apparent as it warms, moreso on the backside.   Smooth for a malt liquor.   Better than Dogfish and Rogue.   Worth a try at least.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Bomber by way of riversideAK. Pours light gold with a one finger stark white head. The nose is grain, light citrus zest and corn. The taste is honey, grain, light grassy hops and faint lemon zest. Lingering corn finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad for a malt likka. Thanks Alex!

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2009
22oz bomber courtesy of RiversideAK poured into a tulip. Pours a clear yellow gold with a bubbly white head that recedes to a collar fairly quickly and leaves no lacing. The aroma is sugary malts and some sweet corn. There are also hints of toasted grains and maybe some hops if you really try to find them. The taste has a little bit of hops up front but they are quickly swept away by the dominant corn and sweet malt backbone which last through the finish and leaves a sticky sweetness on the tongue with an alcohol burn as well. There is a bit of a toasted grain bitterness that comes out a little as it warms. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with decent carbonation and sticky with sweet malts and corn on the palate. Well, this is, without a doubt, the best malt liquor I’ve ever tasted. That doesn’t put it in the pantheon of overall beers for me, but it’s pretty darn drinkable and I wouldn’t mind having one of these every once in a while. If only it came in a 40....

hopscotch (9064) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle… Lightly hazy, light golden lager with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is pretty corny – smells a bit like CornNuts – with a touch of acetaldehyde. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Leans on the sweet side of balance. Grainy – corn mostly. Not really my thing, but grateful for the chance to try it. Bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan!

Thanks be to the Cheeseman. Really, this is a pretty damn good malt liquor. Light and refreshing. Not bad at all. A little corn and grain.
