Cosmic Tiger Edition. Light golden body. Sweeter malt, has a good bit of bread and grain. Not particularly hoppy or balanced, just a big sweet malty lager. Lighter medium bodied, good carbonation, finishes a bit dry and a touch perfume-y.

Weekender Edition. Clear golden body. Crisp crackery malt. A touch of grainy malt sweetness. More balanced than Cosmic Tiger. Mild floral bite. Smooth, good crisp carbonation. Not anywhere near hoppy as CZAF but would be a damn good AAL if labeled so.

Pours a crystal clear golden color. Quite effervescent initially with a thin, weak sudsy white head. The effervescence lightens as it sits, but it remains somewhat effervescent throughout. Aroma has notes of sweet grain, corn, wonder bread, with a light sweetness.

Taste is sweet with notes of corn, grain, wonder bread, a subtle bitter hop note with some fusel alcohol like notes. Its pretty sweet with a malty sweetness that actually ends up lingering on the palate. Feel is smooth, thicker and somewhat slick. Mild carboantion. Kind of dry on this finish.

Overall this is actually pretty decent - Its sweet and grainy, but actually tastes halfway decent. I would actually willingly drink this again.

19.2 oz can from Tavour. Clear golden pour, small white head. Aroma is sweet, grainy malts. Mild fruity flavors accent the smell. Slick, slippery feel.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a narrow collar around the edge of glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts and notes of fusel alcohol are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell but the aromas and flavors are a bit more subdued.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and somewhat clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite good for the style. While it has some notes to hints of fusel alcohol, these aren't overly strong.

19.2oz can into a pint glass. Canned 6/1/21, so 5 weeks old.

Looks nice in the glass. Crystal clear golden body with good carbonation. Small bright white head doesn't last though, hence no lacing.

Not much on the nose, just a little sweet malt.

On tasting, very malty, quite sweet, a light dryness, even faint heat from the relatively low abv.

Mouth right around medium, finish sweet with the faintest of bitter notes, but spoiled by a light metallic touch.

Overall, not bad, dont get to try this style too often, so kudos to Wayfinder for putting it out. Since I am an aging coot, I have no idea who Red Fang are.

So here Raul is, drinking some Malt Liquor just after midday (and you know I wouldn’t have it any other way).

Anyway, this one is pretty shocking - like, Santa tripping over the chord to the Christmas tree and starting an electrical fire “shocking.” Yeah, it’s wild and good like the groundhog who came out of the hole early. I mean, it simply just tastes good. And that’s good. For Raul. Cuz Raul likes good things.

See ya.

19oz can

Pours a finger of dense white head into a Rastal Kolsch glass, a little fizzy, and it fades within a couple minutes. Initial lacing looks poor. Body is pale yellow, crystal clear, with a medium amount of bubbles coming up. Looks par for the course so far.

Nose is certainly a little sweet. Corn, but some bready notes as well. A touch of caramel. Not a lot going on, but who could expect that. Not bad, works for a WEEKENDER.

Flavor is pretty robust. It’s been a long time since I’ve had an actual malt liquor, but I can’t imagine they usually have this much flavor. That being said, it also comes with an elevated sweetness and good amount of corn; what malts are here do a nice job of keeping things on planet earth. It's a bit much at times, but what malt liquor isn't.

Carbonation is medium. Body is quite thick for a lager. Sweetness is noticeable, but not cloying. Bitterness is not evident at first, comes out with time. While it teeters on being a little too sweet, it doesn't cross that line, and the big body is a nice touch.

Drinkability is pretty good considering it's not light at all. Mild alcohol comes out as it warms, and that does slow me down a bit.

Appearance turned out poor, no surprise there, zero lacing.

Overall it's not a beer I can say tastes high quality, I mean it’s by definition full of adjuncts. All things considered though, it's not bad, pretty clean other than the sweetness.

Can from ABV.

A clear straw yellow with a quickly receding white head, this looks decent. The nose is delicately sweet with a definite grain character, no corn, no hops. The palate opens delicately sweet and grainy, a clear malt flavor, grainy, mildly sugary and clean. Very mild bitterness on the finish with more sweetness present. Light but not watery, crisp, clean and quite drinkable.
