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 doesn’t much give half a shat when he’s out for a buzz on a budget? Juice isn’t bad, despite the fact Miller attached their name to it. In fact, it tastes like...beer, and beer that isn’t 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 didn’t 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 doesn’t taste like Budweiser filtered through a urethra? I say yes. I say hell yes. Don’t believe the un-hype, you’ll dig it the most.

Aroma - fruity nature, wet cardboard, rubbing alcohol Appearance - the body is clean light amber, with steady nucleation. The head is about 1" and white, and settles slowly. Some lacing. Taste - is sweet and grassy. There is a bit of wet cardboard, unenjoyable fruitiness, grassy hops, and alcohol. Palate - light to medium body, thin texture, lively carbonation, and a slightly grassy and fruity finish. There is a slight unpleasant burn; bile is really induced.

(2009-ish New England roadtrip backlog jpg-recollected in tranquility). Dispensed in all innocence from a then quickly discarded tall can. Still smell the diesel gas-infused corn syrup emanating from this alumin(i)um alco-tallboy, gurgling hay sulphurs into a premature coda. The promise of headache from a gas/petrol/benzin station is universal and unique. Mandatory. Makes me want to open my 2012 vintage 1000ml Faxe artefact.

BeerRenter76 (834) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
S.R. pours a mid yellow body a little carbonation, with a thin head. Aroma is of sweet corn,grass and grain. Flavor isnt as bad as the smell, mostly of grains and kinda sweet, mouthfeel was kinda thin. Overall its better than most of the other run of the mill macro beers. Originally rated on 10/26/08

Drink ice cold, sip until warm with your favorite album. Not tramp beer but one heck of a heavily malted lager. This beer has a place in between a good imperial stout or a mundane American (weak as ware) brew.

Can - Didn’t pour it into a glass. Heavy carbonation. Skunky. Much malt, corn, probably rice. Got slightly warm and poured some out.

BlackHaddock (6402) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
First ’Tramp Juice’ of my 2016 Californian adventure, 24 once can into a La Chouffe badged stemmed tulip three times on 27th April. Actually I liked the sweetness and malty base, not too keen on the corn flavour and alcohol content that could not be hidden by the week flavours or depth of body, the head could have hung around longer too. I have sat on park benches drinking worse, but I will not be revisiting this ’brown paper bag’ beer again unless I need a hangover and headache.

Can pour into nonic pint glass. Aroma is cracker, slightly metallic. Appearance is clear golden yellow with nice sparkle, fizzy white head with fair retention and trace lacing. Taste is lightly sweet bready malt. Palate is medium bodied with average to lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall, certainly no complexity here but it’s not like it tastes bad. I’d take it over a great sour any day.

Can from Food Stop Rockville, MD. Yellow body with thin head. Skunky nose. Pure malt liquor. Tastes very bad. Sweet with syrupy texture. Acly. Not at all enjoyable.

For a malt liquor it taste great and is smooth for 8.1% ABV. It will also keep you warm on these cold winter nights.

All I smell is the Can ..Im not sure which one is worse, This or Camo.

Lots of copper pipe stolen)...Taste is the same ..pennies on your tounge, little hoppiness/corn mixed in ....looks great in a glass tho......defiantly not my fav budget beer......
