I had some high hopes for this malt. It is from La Crosse, Wisconsin, it is 12% alcohol, it is advertised as a lager. Disappointment, the worst malt I have ever had.

16 oz can into Sam Adams lager glass. This beer’s sole purpose is to get winos and young clueless people wasted, so I’m not expecting too much out of this obviously. Bought from the discount cooler at a local convenience store. Pours clear gold with a medium head with pretty good retention (for a malt liquor anyway!). Collapses into a blanket and collar of foam with some decent lace. Smells of corn, booze, fruity esters (pineapple, mango?). Quite aromatic for a wino beer! Taste is all sweet and boozy. Kind of metallic. Call me crazy, but it kind of reminds of me of a bad American interpretation of a Belgian Tripel, like Flying Dog’s Kerberos. Kind of tangy in the finish. Highly carbonated, medium body. Gross, but not nearly as bad as I was expecting.

Deep bronze colored body with a wisp of a thin white head. There are plenty of fast moving bubbles. There is some alcohol musty carpet and corn flakes. The taste is like liquid perfume and detergent. There is also alcohol and some cardboard. Wow, this is truly horrid.

mmmmm. delicious malt liquor...... Everything you hate to love... Sickly sweet, grainy, alcohol present, but still hidden for 12%. Cool can at least?

(24oz can, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear gold with a small white fizzy head. Aroma of corn and light lemon. Flavor is the same with some nasty added. Medium body with very high carbonation. Overall, someone, some where is saying "This stuff is the shit!" and they would be right....

(24oz can thanks to blutt59) Smells like Miller High Life that someone put medicine into- as in non sweetened cough syrup. This is disgusting! How can anyone drink this?

This beer pours an amberish yellow with a thin white head. The aromas are corn, alcohol. The mouthfeel is water and very alcoholic. This was a get you messed up beer but not a food beer. Cheers!

Oh man, this is some bad stuff. Can given to me by CheersMate. Thanks Kevin... Nose os metal, apples, Borski, Popov, or Safeway Brand triple charcoal filtered vodka, chemically sweetness. Good lord. The can is cool, its got gold and that makes it appear that it might be a little better than it really be so the appearance will probably get the best score of the whole experience. The flavor tastes like alcohol burning from the aformentioned vodkas plus rotten apple cider, heavy corn syrup, and more vodka. Fucking shit this was bad.

This is the new champion in my "worst beer ever tasted" category. Background: as a 6 month addition to our nation’s unemployed statistics, I have become very used to bad beers. Craft beers are a special occasion luxury; Budweiser and Blue Moon are luxury purchases. More often I resort to real swill like PBR, Icehouse, and Beast Ice to get my beer buzz these days. I have even descended so far as to the periodic purchase of Schlitz and Steel Reserve in a pinch. And yet, Stack still stands out as uniquely terrible. I don’t really need to go into the pour, color, lacing, etc. It’s no better or worse than any other cheap malt liquor. Surprisingly, the aroma is not quite as bad as some other American adjuncts. The metallic scent that is often there doesn’t show up. In taste, however, is where this beer really excels -- at being practically undrinkable. The only thing I can summon to describe the taste of this stuff is rotten apple mixed with nail polish. I never, never get rid of beer and yet after about 3 swigs of this, I had to pour it down the toilet. I just couldn’t picture myself finishing it without vomiting. I recommend you try this once just to see exactly where the bottom rung of beer exists.

(24oz can, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grain, cognac, and corn. Flavor of alcohol, corn, and sugar.
