Tried this at FFF. Served in an Imperial pint glass.

A: Well it looks like a malt liquor. Cloudy yellow straw with a white film ring around the edges after the thin head subsides.

S: Yup, smells like one too. Big corn fixture. Although there is a slight hoppy presence in there which makes this actually a decent smelling beer.

T: Just like the nose. Corny barley and a light fruit hoppiness mixed in there.

M: Typical creamy mouthfeel. Decently carbonated with a medium to light body. Some hops left on the palate which is refreshing to say the least.

O: Well, this is a malt liquor. It's still not a good style and this isn't really a good beer. Rating to style though, it is definitely an above average representation of a malt liquor. If the hops weren't present this would have been another bad beer, they make it tolerable.

Served in a snifter at The Firkin.

Nice, another craft malt lickah to torture my tongue with. It pours the color of Death's horse from Revelation topped by a finger of lightly dusty white foam. The nose comprises bleached wheat, corn syrup, corn starch, white bread, sweet flowers, and dried grass. The taste holds notes of corn syrup, sweet grass, marshmallow, sweet flowers, light menthol, white bread, and an awful lot of bleached wheat and flour. It's sweet, syrupy, and dry all at the same time. Wow. The body is a heavy-feeling medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly syrupy feel. Overall, definitely one of the better lickahs I've had, but there's just too much corn- and wheat-sweetness for me to ever really enjoy this stuff.

A - Pale, straw colored beer with a bit of a white head that left just some minor spots on the sides.

S - A lot of sweetness, with some corn. Not really getting much else on there, no real hop presence to speak of.

T - It tastes pretty smooth, alcohol is hidden. Tastes like sweet grains and a bit of corn syrup. Pretty boring, but not bad.

M - Pretty light, a little bit of a syrupy feel. Softer carbonation.

O - Not bad for a malt liquor. The beer had a very warming effect on my stomach, which was unexpected and just went to show how well the alcohol was hidden. Got a little too sweet at the end, but no real complaints.
