Lucan (5) - Wrocław, POLAND - MAR 3, 2015 does not count
Similar to bad international lager (corn aroma and aftertaste) just stronger (7% of alc.). Brew company used corn to increase sugar in wort. They should use at least as much hop :) Head is nice, white and creamy, thatís the best part of this beer.

Well..........not much to say about this. Itís a malt liquor. Tastes like a malt liquor. I guess as far as the style goes it isnít too bad. Certainly drinkable.

Smells of dog piss. Taste isnít much better. Horrible brew that you donít even wish your worst enemy a sip of.

olsvammel (3934) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Old dank smell with a hint of nuts, also fairly boozy. Boozy taste with a hint of chemical malts and some fruits. Metallic. Sweet. Rough mouthfeel. Extremely hard to drink. Feels like Im drinking bad homemade booze.

The beer pours a pale gold with a small head.

The aroma is over-run with breakfast cearal. What else is there is generally things I like in beers, itís herbal, and has some baguette like aroma to it.

The flavor is papery, with a bunch of booze and breakfast cereal. It does have some herbal hops.

Really solid beer name though. A+ on that accord.

Another Swedish gem shared at the RBSG presidential suite bottle share. Pours a clear pale gold with a small white head. Notes of corn, grapes, minerals, and booze. Medium-bodied, with a malty, boozy mouthfeel and low carbonation. One of the better Swedish malt liquors opened that weekend. Probably second-best. Better than the Arboga garbage juice or Warby. Maybe I just liked the label. Maybe itís better balanced. I donít know.

This beer has been cracking me up every time I see it and sometimes even when I think about it. While I cannot explain this phenomenon, I thought I would pass this information along. It is a weird and gross malt liquor with a butt ton of oxidation and it is incredibly hard to drink. I would advise against using this to achieve high levels of intoxication unless there is no other means immediately available.
