Fatehunter's rating

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 4/20
Fatehunter (2341) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Poured into a lager glass. Pretty clear pour, light straw color in the glass. Three and half fingers of head. Despite tall head, it dissipated rapidly. It smells day-long wet grains. Not horrible. Watery taste at first, quickly moved towards sweet... and just stayed there. Not a malty sweet, just a pure sugar sweetness that lingers uncomfortably long. Smooth and light body. Moderate carbonation. Sticky texture. I did not like that. It is what it is. Thankfully it is cheap. Ive had way worse cost to satisfaction ratios with other beers. Still, its doubtful Ill be physically able to finish the 24 oz can.

Pale yellow orange, small white head. Aroma corn and alcohol. Sweet taste with gasoline. Not much to say here.

Havent tasted this beer since the mid 70s. Once was enough! I still have nightmares. If you know anyone who likes this beer, stay away from them, theyre probably dangerous.

3 or so oz sample from a 24oz can, while waiting in line at Perennial for a Side Project release. This beer takes all the offensive flavors typically found in macro lagers, the flavors that are typically subdued and are undetected when you drink ice cold as encouraged, and amplifies them. This is a beer for someone who really likes the way warm Busch tastes, but wants much more of that awful flavor in their face, at a more drinkable temperature. Its every bit as bad as anyone has ever claimed it to be.

The_Osprey (6841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
Clear 22oz bottle shared at Cotteridge II as Olde English 800. Many thanks to MacBoost and the West Mild-lands crew for this one. Clear yellow, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is corn, rug, malt sugars. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Taste is cardboard, corn, pale biscuit. Pretty insipid. Yep, not great. (1.8)

Bottle split at CCii, thanks to Bootsy, Sraky and RTV in some form of triste, 05/03/16. Pale golden blonde with a moderate off white covering. Nose is straw, grain, paper, cereals. Taste comprises light caramel wafer, grain, straw, pale malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so affair ... wat is the point of a Malt Licker without the boost?

40s and blunts, kid! College made us do strange things... like drink this. Oddly enough, I could probably down one just for nostalgia. No longer the go-to!

Originally rated on 5/29/08. Ah 8-ball, those were the days.. Havent had this one in several years, anyway a stickey sweet aroma and taste of malts pretty much sums it up, one of the better malt liqors. It is what it is- a cheap quick buzz, although i always prefered st. ides to o.e

wxman (1754) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Pours a clear pale golden with a fairly robust white head. Aroma is boiled cereal and a bit of hops. Taste is sweet pale malt, corn and just a tad of hops. Not the best, but not the worst.
