look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 22 ounce "Double Deuce" into a tulip style glass.

A - Pours out a golden color with a hint of orange with a one finger of foamy white head. The head retreats to a thick lace but is quite long lasting.

S - Corn and cooked grains dominate.

T - Definite corn with some sweetness with an alcohol finish.

M - Rather light for an 8.2% ABV malt. This coupled with the fairly high carbonation level gives it the type of mouth feel you expect in this class of beers.

O - The 22 has the same alcohol as three regular beers and gets the job done. Frankly there are times I'd rather have a DD of this than 3 crummy AAL's. A 40 of this stuff is a ticket to a quick night. Still, for what it is it isn't "bad" but don't get me wrong; it's still a long way from "good" too. This stuff is only for the experienced and the adventurous.
