2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Ray’s 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. It’s 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.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Can. Berry, barley malt and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet berry barley malt flavor initially but is quickly overwhelmed by fusel alcohols. Like watery Kool-aid mixed with paint thinner. Evil.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can-check, black gold flashy label-check, taken down to below zero-check. Ok we’re ready. It pours with a crystal clear gold body that has copper hues and supports a micro thin white head. The aroma offers up pears, apples, sugar and some chemical booze. The taste starts sweet and ends sweeter. Amid the bruising sweetness loiters sticky apple juice and pear juice. There’s only a mild boozy roughness but as this warms just above freezing the sweetness gets unruly. This is a 3er.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
can 24 oz
Aroma: Well. It’s not very good. Sour skin grape but without barrel treatment. Behind lighter theme , gentle hop , sugars and mineral touches. Rounded-up with ripe pear. 3+
Apperance: poured as clear straight golden brew. Medium lighter snow white top. Sparse lace mind you.
Taste/Palate etc. struggling to compose my mind after initial sip. Tart fruity feel with offensive off flavor that has bitter bend to it. Fusel fuel. Gowd how this could be allowed for retail? It simply beats me. Hey thinking more about this ...I have seen such stuff ..during one off festivals when brew master insisted on providing 2 weeks old barrel aged (vino) barrel aged barley wine. Different means , same result.

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 I’ll have to fix that. Clear gold, basically no head. Corn, watermelon, fusels, grape, bubblegum, and apples. Gross.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
24 oz. can: 9.9%
Pours clear gold with a frothy white head.
Scent is berries....malt, cheap alcohol.
Taste is sweet, but soon gets replaced by a poorly distilled alcohol flavor.
Shrubber85 is correct...it DOES remind me of paint thinner.
A rate is a rate...good or bad....$1.79.....cold.
I cannot fathom the agony of a morning after a night of this would be like....
It probably would involve poorly done tattoos, broken knuckles, a head injury, and a rampant recombination of dissimilar STD’s.....
