3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can shared at the Cotteridge Convention - 2016 edition. Thanks muchly to MacBoost for supplying this regional specialty. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white topping. The nose holds cereal, meringue, faint hay. Medium sweet flavour, lightly boozy, with simple pale grain character. Medium to full bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, with lots of sugary white bread. A rather nice malt liquor. Very drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks, Shawn! Pours a clear golden color with a white head. The nose is kind of bland and watery. Sweet grain and sugar is certainly there, though. A bit of corn, grape, and banana as it sits in the glass for a little while. The flavor is sweet and surprisingly fruity. Banana, grape, and apple notes. Plenty of sugar, some corn, and a general graininess. Surprisingly not bad.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can big thanks to BoostyMac/Rich/Sarky at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. It pours clear gold with a medium white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, cheap hooker-style perfume, honeycomb, corn and toffee. The taste is crisp, sweet, light corn, oily, alcohol boost, paper and the cheapest white bread you a supermarket will offer you. Finish is pretty boozy. Medium body and foamy carbonation. Ok for the style.

Canned @ home, courtesy of blackipa. Fucken a bro, bro. Pours a clear golden appearance with a somewhat foamy, off white head. Slight green apple, a bit citrusy, bubbly carbonated, light grape aroma. Soft mouth feel. Sweet grape jolly rancher, a bit bready, corn flavor. A fine malt liquor and solid swill. Drinks pretty damn good.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
24oz can thanks to BlackIPA! Served in Tired Hands stemware. Pours a clear golden, deeper. Medium, white foam with weak retention and webby lace. Nose is salted tomato, white grape juice, some bizarre esters I’m assuming are common in this rare style. Vegetal certainly. Taste is buttery, papery, lots of red apples. Not really boozy. Decent taste. Nose is awful. V8 juice perhaps. Aftertaste pretty ripe, harsh. Difficult to enjoy especially in this quantity. After just a few sips I’m feeling nauseous and my stomach is churning. I feel seasick. Fiancé rating :2.3
