1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Plastic bottle from The Square Bottle: Appeared a golden straw blonde with no formation of foaming head until the last pour and a violent 60 degree pour instead of the usual 35. Aroma is stale with a bready malt profile that comes across as a scent of Belgian yeast. The flavor is horrible with a fat sweety malt taste that doesn’t win me over as easily quaffable and reminds me that I would rather drink a Mexican beer or malt liquor so it could go down smoother. Huge alcohol burn in the finish that makes this not worth the price paid.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a surprisingly dark color, but it’s still just sort of light orange. The nose is interesting...despite the 8% ABV, this still smells (and tastes) largely like malt extract. Kind of boozy with a bit of honey and bread sweetness (as if the beer needed it). The flavor has a touch of cardboard to go along with the overwhelming sweetness and maltose flavor. This is just not pleasant.

0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 This is it ladies and gentleman, the cheapest beer on earth. 99 cents for a 51 oz plastic flip-top.
It struggles to form a head as it pours a super-pale orange.
The smell isn’t that bad, it smells like maltose syrup, alcohol, and honey.
The flavor is also not garbage for the rice. It is a bit flat though. It is mainly just sweet caramel and booze overtones. not any worse than a Mickey’s.
This is what college kids should put in there crackpipe and smoke the living shit out of it... err their beerbongs.
