Bronze with a loose head of white foam. Aromas are sweet then...nothing. This tastes of sweet water and is quite syrupy in the mouth. The alcohol is hidden somewhere - I can't really sense it. Ah, that "Old purple tin".

Color and head looked natural. Palate was very sweet and intense. Almost undrinkable.

Golden color. Malt and bread aroma. Sweet, oily, alcoholic. Strong final bitterness. A bit too cloying.

Gaaaaaak. When ever you see the words 'malt liquor', run. Thick and sweet, but very vegetative, something like the state you would be in if this was your beer of choice. what

Looks OK i s'pose, decent creamy head with a fair bit of lace happening. Colour was a very dull gold, quite pale. Supersweet, with heaps of alcohol showing, stewed fruit, boiled veggies, and just too much alcohol and metal in there. Quite sticky aswell, and a thin, harsh mouthfeel.

i'd been avoiding this beer for quite some time but some time but desperation to try a new beer got the better of me. no worse than i expected, harsh metalic metho flavours and pretty nasty afterburn

This is one of the lowest ratings I have given. It has got bugger all flavour and not much aroma the only thing it has got going for it is it's alcohol strength.
