Can. The following is a compilation of a dozen peoples’ thoughts who shared this brew with me at my first (and perhaps last?) Malt Liquor Dexterity Games Tournament to celebrate my birthday. Keeping in mind that most of the participants are not regular beer raters, here we go: slightly hazy pale yellow wet cardboard and grains cooked veggies old wet paper corny water decent actually oh my tastier than a terri-cloth tablecloth do I sense peppery notes? 50 shades of blue how does one even rate blue? unimpressed I’d drink this in the summer under a bridge this doesn’t taste strong to me I think I have a problem did you just blue in my mouth?

1.18 liter thanks to slovaksniper. Nose is huge corn. Lightly hazy dark yellow. Large white head. Taste is moderately sweet with a corn note. Considerable carbonic bite. Not too grate. pintbypint (3713) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2015
740ml can. Clear gold with a normal looking white head. Aroma has sweet grains and corn. Taste has alcohol, grains, corn. Some alcohol in the finish. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Pretty smooth drunk juice, I will regret finishing this.... AgentAle (1780) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2015
Aroma is corn and rice adjunct and sulphur. Taste is mostly rice and bland malts. Pretty strong liquor taste. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Bottle @ Hotel. Clear golden yellow pour with white foam. More sweet cereal, grape juice, and apple juice on the nose. A bit of booze and frosted flakes. Flavor is a bit more on the corn syrup side than the lower boost iteration. Lots of sweet fruit juice as well. Getting hot, but not overly boozy.

40oz of awesomeness. Worlds above the 10.1 I just drank. cereal, caramel, floral, grass, dough, dough, dough, dough, dough, dough, and booze. This one is solid as all get out. Super easy to drink. 10/10 swill. Much love. Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2012
1.18L bottle. Clear and very yellow colour. pilsner aroma, with a very roasted malted note. Has a certain sweetness but is very malted liquor meets pilsner. Metalchopz (3442) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
Originally rated October 2005. This Labatt malt liquor pours a pale golden colour from its 950mL can. Patchy lacing, foamy head. Loads of alcohol in the nose. Pretty smooth taste though. Mild sweetness with a corn finish. I still prefer the Mongoose, but this is not bad malt liquor. DeanF (2470) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2010
Yes, this is another 1.18 litre monstrosity of a glass sculpture filled with Labatt’s finest. The bigger question being, of course, why they have so many varieties of this stuff? Have you ever met a chick at a backyard party who said "Oh, I don’t know, the ten percent is just too strong, I’d prefer to sip on the eight percent" and thus you go fish out the one-step-down Labatt of her choosing. No: in fact I’d imagine it’s just discerning homeless drunks who like to time their buzz that buys these things. So if you’re a ten sip guy, you get the ten percent; a fourteen sip guy, you get the eight percent. Ridiculous? Yes; but it’s the only explanation I can come up with. So, this one pours with a slightly darker gold than the others and that same ugly styrofoam-white head. The aroma is dirty armpits and cardboard. Flavour is rice wine and vodka; or just plain old ethanol alcohol if you will. Slightly alcoholic aftertaste. Not absolutely hideous, and it gets into your gut quickly so you can get plastered and do stupid things that your friends can take pictures of and post on facebook. Thus, it is not horrible as a "functional" beer, but seriously, it still really, really sucks.
