1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
5/6/13. 24oz tallboy with BIG thanks to BlackIPA! My man with the big plan! I hear some jackass entered this under the wrong name, 9.8% instead of 9.9%. I guess Iíll have to fix that. Clear gold, basically no head. Corn, watermelon, fusels, grape, bubblegum, and apples. Gross.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
High gravity, more like high alcohol content. If itís a quick buzz you want, this is your most affordable solution. If itís flavor, you should surely look elsewhere. Not at all smooth, and definitely not a Lager.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tallboy from Mr. 2000. I left it in the can, but I assume itís got a pale pour with a big white head. Aroma was apparent immediately and it was sticky and alcoholic. Taste is about the same. Too sweet, stale fruit, and plenty of alcohol.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
24 oz. can. Pours a minimal, poorly retained, white head, over a clear dark yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is corn, apple, alcohol....taste is corn, sweet apple, fusil type heat, finishing with lingering light sweet cereal....mouth feel light, alcohol poorly hidden, with substantial warmth, carbonation makes a fizzy soda. This is simple, highly alcoholic, and meets my low expectations. It does not have any major technical flaws, it just isnít very interesting. BJCP 4/2/9/3/5

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Rayís Liquor in Chico, CA. Pours brassy gold with a foamy white head. Mildly sweet aroma. Nothing obnoxious. Med body. Flavor is actually a bit vinous. Itís not too sweet. Heat is a bit too obvious. No fusil oils. But it just does not really taste all that nice. Better than many tallboys, but not something to seek out.

Canned @ home, courtesy of blackipa. Walez bro, thanks bra. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with an off white head. Super sweet, candied orange, boozy, Slurpee aroma. Ye gods, this is a motherfucking sweet piece of booze. Citrus, cookies, 7-11 candy aisle flavor. Not my kind of malt likka.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting. I guess this is the smaller brother to the regular Stack HGSL. Iíve seen this now in both the 10.1% and 9.9% variety. Iím not sure if they are going after the Canadian market and doing another lower one in the 7-8% range, but one would hope. Clear gold pour with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of cotton candy and corn. Sweet finish. Kind of like a desert style malt liquor. Not bad at all.
