yespr (45875) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2008
22 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a fully diminished head. Dry malty and vague spiced aroma. Flavour is malty and slight sweet with a light caramel note yet doesnt hide the fact that this is a malt liqour. Sweet finish.

3.1
Ungstrup (37905) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2008
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, fruit, and malt as well as lighter notes of honey. OK - which is a lot better than expected when I saw the Malt Liquor on the bottle.

Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of yespr/Ungstrup. Pours a clear deep golden with an off-white head. Very sweet malt aroma. Quite full-bodied with very sweet malts - almost sugary - with basically no bitterness. 100908

Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
Ugly hazy beige colour. Lots of creamed corn and sewage on the nose. Absolutely vile. Incredibly sweet, all adjunct, no hop nor malt, lots of sewagey off-flavours and grotesque alcohols. I don’t normally question other people’s ratings, but this is one of the highest-scoring malt liquors on the site? It’s pure shit. There is definitely some pro-Rogue bias in this. Dad’s Little Helper is truly horrid, a full and worthy 0.5

Bottle thanks to Tim. Pours clear yellow. Nose of malt and light pepper. Taste of light spiced malt. Mostly, just malt as expected.

2.2
brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 13, 2010
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a soapy white head that recedes quickly. S: This smells like a cheap white/sparkling wine. Very dry and cidery with lots of grape juice, peaches, apple juice, and definitely some significant alcohol contributions. T: The flavor is pretty much the same as the nose, but sweeter. Apple cider with some white grape juice flavor. There’s still that same cheap wine thing going on and a fair amount of alcohol. M: The body is medium with the carbonation being a bit high at first before dying down. D: For a "craft" malt liquor, this is pretty bad. I’d rather have any number of mass produced industrial malt liquors.

MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle. Almost clear yellow colour. Peppery flavour, hint of caramelly malt. Acidic fruitiness.

2.6
bhensonb (15352) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Bomber. Aroma of sugar and malt - not sweet malt, sugar. Brassy gold color with a white head that’s not overly impressive. Thin to medium bodied. Nice level of carbonation. Unfortunately it has that sicky sweet characteristic of mass malt liquors. Gee, but it’s sweet. On balance there are some bitter notes. The sweetness is a bit reminiscent of a Belgian ale. There is grape, and perhaps honey, but the effect is not what one would hope for in an ale. It gets credit for making malt liquor drinkable. Seems a bit of a waste when the resources could have been used to make an ale!

3.3
Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle at McLoughlin’s, Kyoto. Cloudy amber - white head. Licorice, sweetness, high malty, nice medium hoppy, yeasty, sharpness, light wheaty notes. OK.
