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.

First off, great packaging. Second of all, this beer sucks. A sticky and boozy malt liquor.

Bottle @ the pussy palace. Pours a Gazza gold ale appearance with little head. Sweet twangy cardboard aroma. Apple, papery, sweet flavor. Not too gold.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Horrible beer, to put it bluntly. Some hops and bitterness in it, but otherwise it tastes just gin and vodka. Could not even drink it up, I poured it out to the sink.

330ml green bottle, with a label featuring an Elk warning road sign, poured into a Lager glass. Appearance is clear very pale golden with a medium sized white head, that reduced fast leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat bread, corn and a hint of lemon. Taste of wheat bread, corn and alcohol. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Palate is light bodied, thin texture and average carbonation. A strong lager where the flavour is dominated by alcohol, not a good beer but it is cheap.

Pours very pale yellow. Tastes extremely bland with minerals and stale water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pizzy yellow, canned corn, malty bread in taste and aromas. Almost undrinkable

Part of a seven crap beer blind tasting. Pours piss yellow with low white head. Aroma is rye bread, cooked vegetables, etc. Taste is just horrible with incredibly boozy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
