Shared can from Ron, thanks! Sharp nose. Couldn’t identify the sharpness. Interesting palate, sweet, sugary, a bit out of balance. Full bodied. Unusual for a malt liquor in that it wasn’t a pure burner. Not bad.

Ron (3855) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Clear golden yellow color with No head and thin lace around the edge of the glass. Sweet aroma, wouldn’t call it malty I would call it corn syrup. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic of course. Got this only to rate a Lithuanian beer. Not good.

Labeled Zhiguly Grande. Bottle. Pours a deep gold, with a modest white head. Very heavy and sweet, with a smoothness that belies it’s proof. For a malt liquor, it’s pretty good.

Sweet malty aroma, sickly sourness too. Same in the body as well. Covers the 9.5% very well. Sickly sweet, but very tempting.

Golden clear with a small white head, aroma of fruits sugar and candy,flavor of sweet fruit juice can say exactly what kind of fruit, some pleasant bitterness along the way, body is medium to low, I guess it is the best malt liquor I have tasted so far, but this kind of style is not for me.

Total crap! The big foamy white crown on a hard pour dies rather quickly as does my enthusiasm for actually continuing drinking this, bright gold with some unfiltered stuff (not much), slow moving bubbles. The odor is chalk, oddly sweet apple, grass, candy and pee. Taste borders between pretty undrinkable and totally undrinkable. Actually, it tastes just like the description at the top of the page looks. Odd. Metallic, bad apple, grass, alcohol, cardboard. Thick and viscous, bad after taste. I seriously had a headache instantly. I’m going to go and throw this beer at a bum.

Can, clear deep golden colour, aroma pf candied fruis and traces of corn, flavour of sugar with hints of tropical fruits. strong repulsive blend of sweetness and alcohol which shows quite strongly, really bad.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 16, 2009
Can. Clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of grainy malt, light corn hints and a bit of grass. Sweetish flavor with grainines, metal and a bit of alcohol. Light-medium body. Alcohol is pretty well-hidden but it’s still nothing good.
