1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma - Strange. Apple vinegar. Yeast. Spices. Alcohol.
Appearance - Looks promising. Clear and golden with billowy white head.
Taste - Huge malty sweetness, almost syrupy, medicinal, some caramel notes. Pretty boozy. The seeming lack of hop bitterness to offset the intense sweetness is a bit problematic. Strange side notes: metal, balsamic vinegar, cough syrup.
Palate - Medium bodied.
Overall - The most bizarre beer I have ever tasted. I am not quite sure what the brewers were trying to accomplish.
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of grain, grapes, sweet apple, indeterminate spice, and alcohol fumes. Clear pale gold/amber color. Flavors of grain, some light grass, sweet cereal, spice, and a bit of oxidation. Medium body, a bit oily, and rather warming. Kind of like a fortified wine or a sherry. Interesting, as a malt liquor (which is a style I rarely drink), but not all that good. ebone1988 (2237) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2017
God damn malt liquors. Aroma is rubbing alcohol, slight tartness, metallic, corn, atrocious. Appearance is amber golden, slight haze, white head. Taste is perfume, corn, rubbing alcohol, metallic, not great. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, perfume and maybe slight hop aftertaste. Overall, for the style, this is one of the better ones, despite the aroma. coldbrewky (1731) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Winter is coming....and yet it seem a late crop of summer pilseners are appearing en mass upon the shelves at beer world.. This one had a price that could not be ignored. The old adage of you get what you pay for also echoed softly in my mind at the time of purchase. You pessimists out there will not be disapointed. This is total crap reminiscent of the over sweet with tarter finish Baltika swill. UDBeernut will love this. Kleg (448) - The Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Semi clear orange-ish amber color and a khaku head with good retention. Decent lacing. Taste is pure alcoholic paint thinner. Disgusting. Drain pour. 8.0 ABV is obvious.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head. Aroma and taste of light malt, floral elements, grass, hints of apple juice and white wine. maybe some pear? Musty. Finish is warming, sweet and malty. It’s really weird. Can’t say I’ve had anything quite like this. And in this case, that’s not a good thing.

Aroma: odd, fruity aroma with a strong backbone of corn and rotting apple juice; Appearance: pale straw, clear, with white head that dissipates fairly quickly; Taste: not quite as bad as it smells but almost; sickly sweet with apple juice finish; Palate: light bodied with medium, sweet finish; Overall: Yuck. A drain pour. BlackBeerPG (987) - Darien, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Taste: crisp, semi sweet malt, herbal notes.
Slight perfume nose. Pale gold semi clear, with a tight bubbled head small lace. Lite body. Delicate sweet version of a lager. crossovert (14146) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2016
33cl bottle 8.8%abv. Fusel and grain aroma. Oxidized some fruit aroma. Flavor is boozy and oxidized, tastes like sherry, gross. Like a really bad HG malt. AndySnow (8311) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2016
