3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
RBSH task #38.
I actually added this to the system, so it’s only fitting that I rate it. I ended up trying it at Toronado one night during SF Beer Week. Actually, that night happened to be Russian River night, so while I tried my Framboise Cuvee and a requisite glass of Pliny, I also ordered a pint of this stuff. It was sweet, very corn-heavy, kind of amberish in color (a bit dark for a malt liquor), medium bittered, and a bit fruity. It wasnt terrible but it was clearly a malt liquor in spirit.

Clear light amber pour with a white head. Sweet bread, toasted malt, and fruity esters. There’s some banana, light floral hops, and a light sourness on the finish. Tastes pretty malt liquor-like. Hints of corn?, sweet bread, banana, apple, and pear. Very light hop profile with no perceptible bitterness.

On tap at 21st. Clear darker golden in color with a medium off white head. For sure the aroma stirs old memories of Rainer ale. Sweet malty nose, bready, taste was like a souped up Colt 45, decent and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the SF beer week opening celebration. It pours a clear amber color with an off white head. The aroma is fruity with some pear, plum and apple. The flavor has more plum, pear and a good grainy malt profile. Clean and full bodied. A bit bready. Nicely done, but difficult to compete with all the great beers at the event.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rare malts bitches! Draft at speakeasy. Clear darker golden with minimal head. Corn, grassy hops up front, some creaminess, faint apple. Light body with prickley carbonation. Flaked corn cereal, grassy hop flavor that cleans it up a bit but finish has present alcohol burn and a touch rough, good bittering in the finish, but not enough to keep you from forgetting that this is a malt liquor.
