2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 24oz can of label claimed "High Gravity Lager" whatever that means at 4% ABV (and 3.2% ABW). It makes me wonder what the Normal Gravity Lager must be like. This pours with a clear deep golden body that supported an initially tall white head. The aroma offers up corn sweetness, mild sweet apple fruity esters and then plain old vague sugary sweetness. The taste has a bit of prickly carbonation pushing up a faint lemon note right from the start. But mostly this has modestly sweet notes of apples, pears, corn and some grainy malts. This lacks the boozy chemical harshness that defines the style in my opinion.

Can at Maxís for his birthday. Pours a clear watery yellow with a medium to large white head. Smells of grain and cheesy vomit. On the thin side of medium-bodied, sweet grain, not a lot else. Grainy into the finish. Rather empty. Tastes like flat seltzer.

Can thanks to Casey, chugged with Graeme! Pours a pale golden with thick frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is skunk corn malt. Light corn malt, like a skunked keg beer. Not bad

Can courtesy of Blipp at Maxís 30th Birthday. Pours a light, pale yellow body with white head. Aroma is faint corn, malt and grass. Mouthfeel is light, carbonated with notes of dry grass, grain, malt and corn. Blends really well with the Lou Pepe Framboise 2001 vintage.

Can courtesy of Blipp at Maxís 30th. Never underestimate Blippís ability to find the rare BMCs. Pours pale yellow with white head. Nose is corn, sheet metal and light skunk. Taste is nothing. Absolutely nothing. Maybe some light corn water. Light water thin body.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can via Mr. R. Garbage, originally from the Hoffdoge? Thanks! Crystal clear golden. Faint whiff of dusty hops, neutral otherwise. Definitely watery, but clean beery flavor comes through. Nothing major wrong with this. The whole is better than the sum of its parts. Perhaps adding water minimizes the negative aspects of the whole malt likka thing, because other than being a little light on boost, this ones fine.

Big fucken can @ home, courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Thanks! Kind of hard to confirm this is the 4% version on the can. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a thin white head. Corn, grape must, lemon, and garbage in the nose. Spritzy, tangy grassy, grainy malty, corny flavor that is well carbonated. Not all that great.
