Ruggedly coarse Euro strong lager recalls dismal American malt liquor. Glutenous honeyed wheat malting and sour yeast pungency bring sickeningly cloy entry to wet-paper backend of no-headed straw-paled drear. Cheap whiskey snip and skunked metallic reminder deplete corn-sugared murk.
For what it’s worth, one of the better mass-marketed malt liquor-like strong lagers of the ‘90s. Honeyed corn sugar buttering and chemical-like alcohol whir override overripe dry-hopped banana fruiting to frisky ginger-snapped finish. Creamy crystal malting nearly pushes this over the top.
Repulsively bland, soapy, cabbage-scented lager gains diacetyl corn malt clutter to counter dismal lemony hop slot. Strong, but obtrusively pungent.
Inoffensive clear straw lager retains dank malt sweetness and white breaded sourdough pleasantry to watered down metallic finish. Lazy barley-oats scamper recedes abruptly. Hefty 9.5% alcohol strength lost in the shuffle.
Meek golden-cleared pilsner-styled Czech lager puts nondescript cereal grains in bland dry malt setting. Seltzer water frisk can’t overcome lame body and alcohol reminder gets annoyingly astringent.
Astringent malt liquor stench suits sour dough pungency and unassumingly corn-y 7.8% alcohol flow. Gruff grain wave rolls off the back of the tongue mid-palate, softening substantially by oily maize finish.
Wood burnt grain fervor overpowers dry Scotch malting to toasted biscuit bottom of strong pale lager. But dull cardboard finish nulls any mild sugary sweetness or cocoa bittering, lowering its potency.
Uniquely embossed Buddha-bellied green-bottled lager becomes tiresome as Asian-influenced glutinous wheat-rice pastiness and musty malt souring falter. Dry-hopped astringency brings about dank dishwater soaping upsetting residual lemony tartness.
Wickedly inept 8% alcohol deviance can’t propel dismal corn syrupy clear-toned mess. Cloying honeyed maltose goo further undermined by astringent peppered hops.
Sweet rye-molasses confluence heightens burnt caramel malt sweetness as corn-husked wheat shard abets brisk hop spicing. Unobtrusive 7% alcohol flow, heavy for a lager, hidden by smooth sugary alleviation.
Abysmal funky-scented cloy-tasting malt liquor-like scum retains horrid corn oil astringency. Reprehensible.
