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.
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.
Flogging malt liquor coarseness and sour malt nose merge to cloying Scotch signature worsened by cheap corn-sugared alcohol harshness. Oily hops don’t help.
After somewhat promising sweet malt salvo, pearly white-headed fluff depletes unassuming 7.8% alcohol burn for desolate mineral-grained tizzy. Abated oily hops dull herbal nuances consuming slick cloying finish that fails to reach full-bodied potential.
Skunked pale-malted phenol-hop bitterness settles up-front for highly carbolic moderate-bodied Ukrainian. Mild corn-husked barley-rice conflux lost to sour apple drear at drab finish. Harsh metallic aftertaste ensues.
Stench-y malt liquor-like 10% alcohol flow absorbs funky fruited malts and lively hop surge, but nice berry-melon hints drop off as miring corn starch nature and sourly metallic finish evolve.
Buttery Scotch malts and moderated roasted hop bittering engage brown-sugared chocolate-spiced cocoa bean undertones for heavily liquor-laden lager. Sweet corn and honeyed wheat provide backdrop. Just a tad acidic and harsh.
