October 9, 2014 - bomber? - Hazy gold, minimal white head. Boozy and fruity sweet aroma (bottle might be a bit ancient). Taste follows - sweeter and boozier, a bit floral. Slick, still, sticky - boozy sweet slightly harsh finish. Ehh. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 30, 2016
1 finger head, leaves spotty lacing... the brew is clear golden.
Nose shows much more "clean maltiness" than I was expecting, not the hot malty/creamed corn aspect. some very background hoppiness with warmth.. maybe some grassy hops fit in there somewhere.
Flavor isn’t "exactly" clean... Some DMS for sure, but not terrible... Clean enough that some EtOH shows as a little hotness and spiciness... Basically just fairly sweet malts with not enough hops to balance... drinkable and sorta approachable for a Craft Beer drinker looking to slum it for a while :-)
Body is pretty thick as expected... carbonation is light making it go down easier.
If given this in a blind tasting, I would guess it a dumbed-down Maibock that didn’t quite get the right carbonation. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. One finger of frothy white head. Retention is worse than average and not much in terms of lacing.
3.0 S: Graininess, corn and more corn, and some breadiness. Not digging it. Light earthy hops.
1.5 T: The corn does not mix well with the hop bitterness at all. Perhaps this is why there’s never any hops in malt liquor. Grain and breadiness.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess. Not bad here.
2.0 D: Ehh, kinda sucks.

Bottle opened up at the 2014 Ottawa End of Year Gathering. Light straw with a white film on top. Grainy, light malt, caramel, slightly bitter hop aroma, low carbonation and light body, plain. Boutip (6664) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes is pretty bland. Taste is also dominated by light cereal notes with adjunct barely noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing really special about that one and I can’t say I would have notice this was malt liquor if it had been a blind tasting. cfrancis (3637) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2015
Pours cloudy amber ale with a thin white head. Aroma sweet fruity and sweet syrupy. Taste is caramel malt with light grassy hops mabel (10011) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
