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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale yellow color with a short lived white head. Smells like malt liquor. Really sweet and simplistic aroma. Sugar and corn with a bit of cereal and not much "real" malt aroma. Some sweet fruit esters, though. The sweetness dominates the flavor, too. Sugar, apples, cereal, and corn make up most of it. No hop flavor or bitterness to speak of.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Pizza Port Carlsbad pouring up deep gold with faint haze and small near white head. The aroma has fresh floral hop notes, a bit of spicy hops and then a pretty good load of malt sweetened lageriness. The taste is similar with a pleasing prickly yet gentle floral and spicy hoppiness that only briefly ventures away from hop flavor toward hop bitterness. It has a robust base of honey like sweetness and apple like sweet esteriness within an undercurrent of sugar sweet malts and lager yeastiness. I found really no flaws that just about define the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub while picking up Zombie Dust 6ers (Munster, IN). Pours a hazy dulled golden yellow hue. A bigger frothy eggshell white head atop dies to a thicker film, laces ok. Aromas are crisp grains, corn, and bread. Some touches of grass, light yeasty dough, some touches of florals, faint lemon. Pretty dense malty bread, grain, cereal, some corn. Initial is lighter bodied, offering some gruff grains, cereal malts, touch of dry bitterness and some brash alcohol. Dry into the backend, a good deal of grass, bread, decent florals. Some light spice. Pretty dry leading into a less thorough and inviting cereal and grainy malt body, corn and bread. Some spice, mellow lemonsn grass. Finish is a bit of heaty and spicy alcohol, dry grass and dry breadiness. A strange beer, a bit tough on the palate and a bit of a labor for me to drink a full Imperial Pint. Meh.. I wouldn’t try it again, but I generally hate high gravity lagers as it is. Serviceable, but just not my thing

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at PP Carlsbad. I think this is the first time ever that I have had a malt liquor on draft, and I paid a premium pint price. Golden pour, quite cloudy, with a thin fizzy head. Sweet corn, bad malt liquor fruit notes, rotten grain, and grassy bitterness. Yes it’s definitely a real malt liquor, but a pretty good one at that.
