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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can 24 oz
Aroma: sweet light, sugary , light on heat. For style quiet clean. Light hops noted. 6+
Apperance: clean golden , with medium plus bright white top. Sparse lace with rings.
Taste/Palate etc. medium bodied with oily sides. More of helles bock body than think rough malt likka. That side shows with rougher alcohol hints but still I must say it was quiet solid. You could fool this with many folks if relabeled as doppel bock. Decent body, clean alcohol heat in check and you will find hinted hop side. Highly under rated.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Glad to see the US doing some 7%/8%/10% variations like the Canadians. Thanks BlackIPA! Yellow with a big white head. Bread and corn, corn bread aroma. Similar flavor, just a bit of fruit. Good carbonation, no hint of the ABV. Also, my can got deleted? Seriously? That’s nutters.

24oz can I picked up in Portland, ME with some friends at a gas station near the train station. Pours into numerous glasses and chugged effortessly out of the giant can. Taste is sweet corn, sweet malt, and tangy metalic mutserings abound. In the glass pale yellow shined on, head was flat and body was thin. Def not as harsh as i would have thought, the sweetness was enjoyable at times, reminiscent of candies and sugared tarts. Overall there was a generaic bite to this that transposed the evening with joyfullness and funny references to the bite. too bad I got just one.

This canned brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation body transparent white colored body and a poor lacing. The weak aroma was musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish grassy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mildly vinous grass and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

(Krampus can from UDBeernut, thanks!) Pours out a clear gold color with a large white head that slowly settles to a thin cap. Aroma smells of green apple, Sprite, and the interior of a dusty car in southern MN. Waves of nostalgia are elicited. Flavor is really sweet right up front, with a lot of corn and caramel apple like flavors, before it just drops away to a watery, lightly hoppy finish. Not really getting much in the way of booze here, so this is actually pretty easy to drink. Maybe too easy. Overall I don’t find this to be really all that offensive, but I wouldn’t go as far to say that I’d ever want to drink this again.

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.
