3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Nice, lemmings...walk off the cliff right outside your high horse/monastery/brewery. Do any of you shed the Beer Snob vibe long enough to tie one on like the guy at the bar who doesnít much give half a shat when heís out for a buzz on a budget? Juice isnít bad, despite the fact Miller attached their name to it. In fact, it tastes like...beer, and beer that isnít made to taste like other urine samples in the "discount" category, simply for the sake of tasting like other urine samples in the "discount" category. Bottom line: Had three of these neck breakers at The Cooler in Edgewater, CO (Denver suburb) for $2.50 each. The 8.1 ABV didnít leave hints of Vietnamese cinnamon and exotic dark fruit lingering majestically on my finely-tuned monastic palate, but it did differentiate and it did leave me buzzing like a chainsaw. $7.50 for an "at the bar" beer buzz that doesnít taste like Budweiser filtered through a urethra? I say yes. I say hell yes. Donít believe the un-hype, youíll dig it the most.

It smells so sweet I would almost guess it were a Belgian. Taste really syrupy and sweet. Pretty gross, but only if youíre buying a pint; when Iím drinking a 40 this is what I want. Boats and hos.

Tall can at home, no paper sack. Pours brilliantly clear dark gold with a medium-sized, very tight-bubbled pearly white head that quickly dissipates and settles at the glass edge; light spotty lacing. Aroma is floral/fruity (honeysuckle), table sugar, sweet corn, light and crisp Pils malt, light earthy and spicy hops and spicy alcohol. Flavor is moderate sweetness with a faint hop bitterness that takes a little sweetness away on the back of the tongue, peppery and spicy alcohol settles into the finish, lingering for a while. Light Pils malt and sweet corn taste stays throughout, and there is no real hop flavor; lightly dry finish as the alcohol escapes the tongue. Medium body, medium-light carbonation, and light alcohol warmth. I believe I will tip the rest of this out for the homeys.

Awww yeah poured this bad boy into my 22 ounce glass and see they give you 24 ounces of value here. Freshness dated may 19 2014 on the bottom of the can so this is nice and fresh! If your steel reserve can come freshness dated then i dont want to hear any excuse from a brewery not to date your beers. Pour has a golden color with little head at all and slow carbonation. Aroma has sweet malt, grains, and minerals. Mouth feel is full for a lager and the carbonation is a tad low. Flavor is where the extra gravity kicks in with heavy malted sweetness against the grains and minerals. It is only palatable really cold and it will be difficult to finish. Feeling real classy drinking this from a glass.

First off for the price this isnít bad. Smooth, clear golden pour. Hints of metal and corn liquor on the nose. Medium thin in the mouth with a burst of malty sweet alcohol in the finish. I suppose it could use some fine tuning but if you want that youíll spend the Extra money. pretty tasty.

24oz can from a Shell gas station. $1.50. Canned June 9 14. Clear golden color. Little white head. Couple dots of lace. Bigger body. Lighter, kind of a smooth carbonation, but a rougher texture. Dry lightly biting finish. Bread, musty aroma, light skunk factor in the aroma, light lemony hop, light bite, nothing too bad. Kind of a light sour taste, sweet. Not great. Kind of makes my teeth feel rough. But not awful. I feel like it paid off, making sure this was fresh. Probably rancid post expiration.

Can. The look is clear, whitish head, and golden in color. The smell is grain, malt, weak, and blah. The taste is water, weak, grain, and sweet malt juice.
