2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap sample in 10/2012. Poured dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet sweet grain aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Better then my expectations.

Tried this at FFF. Served in an Imperial pint glass.
A: Well it looks like a malt liquor. Cloudy yellow straw with a white film ring around the edges after the thin head subsides.
S: Yup, smells like one too. Big corn fixture. Although there is a slight hoppy presence in there which makes this actually a decent smelling beer.
T: Just like the nose. Corny barley and a light fruit hoppiness mixed in there.
M: Typical creamy mouthfeel. Decently carbonated with a medium to light body. Some hops left on the palate which is refreshing to say the least.
O: Well, this is a malt liquor. It’s still not a good style and this isn’t really a good beer. Rating to style though, it is definitely an above average representation of a malt liquor. If the hops weren’t present this would have been another bad beer, they make it tolerable.
Serving type: on-tap

This is from December 2011 notes. The appearance was a clear yellow. Aroma was corn, super mild hops, and bread. Taste was more corn, bread, and faint caramel. It was pretty good for a malt liquor and alcohol was hidden well.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear golden pee with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of corn with sweet grains and sweet grains. Flavor begins with a strong corn note with backing sweet grains.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From notes. First reviewed 11/2/2011. Served on tap in a chalice at Northdown. What the hell, it’s Three Floyds, let’s dive into some malt liquor!
My glass arrives with an already subdued head, more of a thin off-white film with a bit of a collar. The beer itself is a mostly transparent golden color that is a little hazy in the center.
The aroma is relatively faint. Gentle bready malts, some honey and caramel sweetness, creamed corn, grass, hay, and some herbs.
The flavor takes a few strange twists and turns. That is not language I would normally use, but the progression of flavors is more of contrast than flow. It starts out sweet, with some honey and bready grains. Next I get a tinge of herbs, grass, and spice. The flavor switches gears again with notes of sweet creamed corn, before finally finishing with a light prickly ethyl alcohol flavor.
There is some sweetness throughout, giving off a juicy or vegetable quality. The body is definitely on the full side for the style, which is definitely an improvement over most other offerings. The carbonation is slightly crisp and creamy, which is also better than average. There is a slight stickiness.
If I am to believe Three Floyds description of this beer, "this is what a malt liquor should be,""I think I might just not be a malt liquor guy.

Super caramely. Tastes like a cheap malt liquor. Clear in appearance. No head. What Three Floyds did here is exactly what they wanted to. Malt Liquor at its finest.

Draft at 3F. Yep, this is still around. Something about fermented corn at a high percentage is just off putting. Very clear gold in a plastic cup, no head. Nose is grainy, no discernible hops, weird vomity note as well that is really gross. On tasting, initially it is pukey tasting, but that fades. Corn forward and boozy. Pretty miserable shit.
