2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle with the goofy label for the US market. Golden lager appearance with a reddish tint and a pretty decent head. Very sweet aroma, with a hint of cooked sugar. Drinks with a pronounced biscuit lead-in, followed with an oddly partnered white grape component. There’s not much of a hint of 8.2%, I must admit. Kinda unusual. Not disgusting. (#3646, 8/20/2009)

Pours an off copperish/orange. A tad sweet for my taste. I can imagine this would get better upon drinking a few

Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - 500 ml bottle. Dark orange pour, little to no head and one of the cheesiest labels ever known to man - what is this Teen Wolf? Aroma of pencil shavings and overripe fruit. Flavor is artificially sweet with some hard candy flavors, white grapes and a hint of maple syrup. Mouthfeel is pasty and artificial.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a copper color with teenie white head. Then aroma is fruity and boozy. Taste is pretty bad a first, but as you keep drinking it gets a little better. Lots of booze and malt flavor. Same alcohol content as 211, but this is a lot better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 1 pt. 0.9 fl. oz bottle marked L.67287. The pour is a slightly clouded copper with practically no head or lacing. The aroma is ridiculously sweet and malty. It’s like smelling a caramel flavored ice cream sundae. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is wickedly sweet to the point of extreme but these are sweet malts and a huge dose of brewer’s sugar I would bet. You would barely know you are drinking an 8.2% ABV beer until you feel it a bit later.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks Butters. Bottle poured a golden amber body with an off-white head. Smells like caramel corn. Taste is cracker jacks. Palate is just hopped enough to give some semblance of balance.
