Picked up a couple of oil cans after an ugly night. Poured into a pint glass:

A- Clear golden color with a thick fluffy white head.

S- Not too bad. Kind of fruity, some green apples along with malts and floral notes.

T- Kind of like the nose but not exactly. Grainy, sweet, fruity but with some odd astringent flavors to it, can't quite make out what it is. A little bit of booze burn shows up now and again. Overall the flavor wasn't very strong, it tasted a little watery at times.

M- Thin and very carbonated.

O- Not nearly as bad as I expected. It reminded me of a Euro Strong lager just a little. Its nothing more than just a way of getting drunk fast and for cheap. Not something I'll drink often but I might revisit this on a drunken night.

2.84/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

A: snow white, fizzy foam forms on the pour, dies out to a thin, perimeter scum... sun-shiny amber liquid, crystal clear... occasional thin streak of lace

S: vaguely similar aromatics to a dry, spicy Belgian strong pale like Delirium... bit of that lightly-toasty, popcorny, curiously buttery pils malt note that some of those abbey blond knockoffs have... a bit pissy on the edges

T: oooh... hmmm... might have let this sit a couple minutes too long before popping the seal... dank, blanket spiciness with a low hum of rubbing alcohol to fill it out... there's a dry, powdery sort of quality to the malt, drop of brittle sweetness... strong aftertaste of dirty nickels and paperclips... spectre of dry apple juice late... the marginal deficit in malt sweetness matched with the metallic nuance and a bland, mildly clove-like phenol lingering in the finish groups this more with those purposefully-potent Belgian pales... dirty and metallic overall

M: relatively dry with a light-medium flow on the entry, rounds up a bit on the follow through... this really oughta be drunk quite cold...

O: well... not my favorite malt liquor... bit of a European approach to its constitution that works to a disadvantage here... it might be alright if the metal element was toned down - there's obviously something tasty hiding below - has to get through unobstructed

If you're acting as a beer "snob", it's not good, but if you're *trying* to mangle yourself (because it clocks in at 7.3%), you could do a lot worse. It doesn't taste bad at all, but it's nothing to write home about. It's clearly made for people who are trying to mangle themselves, so for the style/purpose, I'll call it okay/goodish.
