The perfect beer just got even better. An obsessive and demanding process than combines imported malts with temperature variations resulting in a distinctive high alcohol content with great drinkability. It's a one of a kind creation of a refreshing smooth but brave and audacious taste.

24oz can, BBD Mar 2020. Poured into a pint glass.
Was unaware this beer existed at all until recently; found out it was discontinued which explains the can's age.

L - Pours a pale gold, typical of the style. Initially thick, foamy white head recedes to leave a thin ring around the glass with a little bit of lacing.

S - Malty, bready and adjunct-forward. No hop note. Relatively inoffensive.

T - Follows the nose but with more adjunct sweetness. A slight bitter note lingers on the finish.

F - Thin-bodied, surprisingly noticeable carbonation given its age. Goes down smoothly, but the alcohol content numbs the palate a bit.

O - Held up well enough for being two years old, but I won't come back to it. Tick complete.

Covid ticking is hard on a ticker. 24oz can poured into Perfect Pint glass.

Poured the expected clean, clear pale gold of the style. Thin cap of white head that immediately dissipated, and left no lacing.

The aroma was obnoxiously corn-sweet, no other grains or hops.

Same on the palate, but there was the very slightest tickle of hops on the finish.

The body was, surprisingly, typical. Light, sticky, and a cloyingly sweet finish.

Drinkability? Dudes, it's Titanium, how drinkable is that?

Overall? A 3buck mini-mart tick? Sure. Go ahead.

Medium yellow pour with thick white head. Scent is sweet and of corn. Taste follows, with some malt. Light mouthfeel. Finish leans toward the sweet, with some alcohol coming through

24 oz can from Grocery Outlet. I really think this is a malt liquor, at 7.5%. Everything as you would expect for a beer priced at under $3, a pint and a half no less. Grainy, malty, some cooked vegetable notes.

24 oz. can - best before Apr 2020:

Pours yellow with a fluffy head with good retention for the style. Some trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of corn husk, light floral notes. Soft for the style. Alcohol well-covered. Inoffensive.

The taste is of grain, corn husk. A touch of general fruitiness with subtle floral notes come through. It's balanced for a high gravity malt liquor. Alcohol present, but not harsh.

Smoother than other examples of the style. Alcohol is present and the feel fits malt liquor, but not quite as raw.

Not bad for the cost and style. A cheap malt liquor and rated/reviewed as such. If you're looking for a decent, cheap malt liquor - here it is.

24oz can stamped BBD FEB 2020 poured into a nonic pint glass at just below fridge temp 7.5% ABV. The beer pours bright light straw yellow with generous off white head. The head recedes to a patchy cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is minimal with very light grain and hints of fruit. The taste is semisweet grain with a touch of tart that quickly dissolves off the tongue in a relatively unbitter finish. The mouthfeel is thin bodied with above average carbonation and a semi dry finish. There is a little fruity funk in the aftertaste, but it's far less harsh and unsavory than most. Overall, good malt liquor. This is what you think it will be. A cheap buzz without the usual terrible off tastes and feel.

Two 24oz cans purchased at Sid's Handy Mart in Bothell, Washington.
BBD is FEB 2020. Poured in to a pint glass.

Look- Clear golden straw color. An almost non-existent, light off-white head with no retention or light lacing. light carbonation rising as it sits.

Smell- Citrus, sweet malts, alcohol, cereal grains, green apple, corn and light berries/fruits. Not bad, actually.

Taste- Fancy, sweet malt liquor. Different than Natty Daddy. Not bad.

Feel- Light but sticky/syrupy. Moderate carbonation and almost no hop bitterness action at all.

O- I'm never going to buy this again, ghetto fabulous beverage, still deserves a higher rating than it has. Thanks to my wife and Tecate for trying.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: Light golden body with abundant carbonation, and a large, somewhat coarse snow-white head, with good retention.

Aroma: Notes of apple grape, and pear are prominent in the aroma., with lesser notes of white bread and cooked corn. Sweet alcohol is notable as well, not surprising given the ABV of 7.5%.

Flavor: Begins with strong notes of green apple and red grapes, with a strong undercurrent of slightly sweet alcohol. As the taste progresses, there are flavors of white bread, grain, and grassy and metallic hops, As the taste moves towards its close, there is a dryness that is tannin-like. Finishes with a lingering wave of metallic hops.

Mouthfeel: Decently full and soft, with a slight bite of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Its malt liquor, and an fairly good one, at that. Considering its about $2.50 for a twenty-four ounce can, it offers a good value for the price paid. Best if consumed very cold.

Presentation: Packaged in a twenty-four ounce aluminum can, served in a South American-style Pilsener glass.

(24 oz can, BBD MAR 2020; purchased cold at Bella Vista... poured into 28 oz mug)

L: clear, gold liquid, with very faint dusting of sediment; rocky mess of a white head, crumbles into craggy cap and collar... keeps thin, messy cap, laces little

S: golden bread crust, apple cider, wet steel... distant core of light caramel and perfumy booze... fairly textbook (sweet-leaning) aromas, nothing unique... musty-beery aromatics creep up early

T: spiced (cidery) apple phenolic overtone; pastry malt underbelly, gets a bit doughy in the finish... relatively sedate dryness at first, but bizarre, bracing pithy bitterness leaps out after the second sip, almost has a lemon-pith/raincoat thing lingering; but it's dry, despite some vague nilla-wafer-colored sweetness up front

F: has a soft fluffy woosh up front, but doesn't carry much roundness or viscosity to its body, not that it's flat-planed, but the subtle sudsy finish and the slow crescendo of apple-jack boozy warmth keep all in a balmy balance

O: still well before best-by date, but is it on its way out or it was mishandled? - or it's just a Mexican malt liquor, which I don't appear to have ever had... pondering, weighing it back and forth, it's not too shabby, kinda seems rather similar to a few domestic, b-league malt-liq's I've had (gotta compare notes)... bold; probably better cold; I would go south again (1479)

Got this from RaulMondesi. 24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 12/2019. Pours crystal pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, pear, red apple, cracker, corn, white bread dough, light toasted biscuit, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. A bit too fruity corn aromas, but not too bad. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, red apple, cracker, corn, white bread dough, light toasted biscuit, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, floral, woody, grass, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, red apple, cracker, corn, white bread dough, light toasted biscuit, wood, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt/corn and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this is a pretty good malt liquor. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt/corn and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and fairly crisp to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Well balanced pale malt/grains and nice earthy hop presence/balance for the style. Mild residual sweetness with crisp dryness. An enjoyable offering, and good style example. Not as clean as I'd like, but not offensive.
