Cotteridge 2 tasting. Clear gold. Lasting white head. terrible cereal aroma. Its got that European strong lager flavour. Malty syrup. Not terrible.

McWorta (1601) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 21, 2015
Deep golden, with a smooth fine poring head. Aromas of sweet bread, malt, barnyard-dust develop. Soft carbonation, slick with a light-medium body. Mainly sweet with a touch of bitterness on the roof of the palate. Sweet medium finish. Not much to it, really.

ordybill (1627) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Drank from the 32 OZ bottle (without the paper bag). Aroma- not a pleasant aroma, mostly stale corn and wet grass. Appearance- crystal light golden color with lots of carbonation. Taste- really! It is made to impair and not to impress your taste buds. Overall- this is not a good beer and it isnt even a good malt liquor. Colt 45, Magnum and Private Stock are a lot better than this.

Old E we call it. Just drink it to chug and get a buzz. Must be real cold cuz it aint nothing just grain and astringent. Some malts but not much.

ClarkVV (6400) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2015
16oz can drunk 9/17/15 (assumedly relatively fresh).
Copper-orange liquid has a foamy off-white head that slowly recedes to ring. Filtered, highly clear and fizzy.
Standard malt liquor nose seems actually a touch softer/sweeter than your average sharp, stale/rotten/dms-ridden nose. Instead its mostly just heavy cereals, lots of corn, some vanillin and not too much else, including a surprising lack of anything terribly off-putting. Im certainly not jumping for joy based on the nose, but Im not disgusted by it, by any means.
The flavor, then, is rather sweet, though only minimally syrupy on account of an average attenuation and high level of carbonation. Lots of corn, cream, cherry-like esters and a touch of alcohol dryness/warmth on the finish. Its not good and if youre drinking this, Ive got to ask why not just drink the same crappy lager in a lower alcohol form (unless youre concurrently under a bridge smoking crack, in which case its understandable)? But as purely trying the beer to rate it, Ive had much, much worse and its drinkable, even, if a bit sweet and oddly estery.

24 ounce can. Pale yellow gold color. Small bubbly white head. Grainy malt nose. Flavor is slightly vinous, with fruity metallic notes. Lots,of fizz and little flavor. Not good, but not as bad as I thought it would be.

It is what it is. Really pretty foul. Only time I ever drank this was in college when a cheap buzz was the final objective. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Pale yellow color with thin large pored foam. The nose is not good, just a little malty and boozy. The taste as well, even a little watery. The aftertaste is boring, but not specially bad. Not cheap enough to be at least lightly recommendable.

Doing this to get Malt Liquor. And as a joke. Should have become my rating #800. Skunky, corny, sugary, bad, weird. Not more to say. Oh boy.
