For Beer Geeks And Rock Freaks

Opaque yellow tint, funky horsehide-fertilizer nose, and dry piney mouthfeel initiate covert 6.9% alcohol indulgence. Sugar malt caress, honey wheat passage, and carbolic citric hop mildness dent hard-watered texture on second passing.…

Rating: 3

Tags:

Longer ‘lagered’ and more crystal malted than Rebel Pilsener, placing soft-grained wheat chaff above scant spiced hops to soapy mainstream finish. Strong alcohol pungency noticeable.…

Rating: 3

Tags:

Crisp evenly-flavored clear-bodied Eastern Euro full of bitter hops and sour malts aiding roasted barley base. Cornmeal sweetness mellows boldly embittered malt liquor finish. Perfect with a whiskey shot.…

Rating: 2.5

Tags:

Drab white-headed pale-cleared canned lager languishes in one-dimensional crystal malt blandness, allowing no sub-texture to lacquer cloy corn crimp and shabby grain strand. Watered down fluff.…

Rating: 1

Tags:

Pungently alcoholic corn whiskey opening saddles cloy malt liquor-like muck of grainy white-headed copper-toned moderation. If warmed, sour astringency drowns out insulting metallic streak.…

Rating: 3

Tags:

Unspecific dried fruit souring rubs against cautious butterscotch sweetness of hazy golden full body. Precarious cider astringency, grassy hop musk, and dank malt finish lower appeal.…

Tags:

Decent light-bodied bottom-fermented pale-strawed Maltese lager (with billowy white head) retains miserly malt liquor aroma, dank oily maize dryness, and roughhewn cereal-grained innuendo. Soft lemon lime core overcomes vegetal snip. For low budget refugees.…

Sweet-to-cloying Scotch-malted corn sugar entry upsets softly carbonated full-bodied lager (while puffy white bubbles consume short head). Oily 7% alcohol flow scoffed by rugged American-styled malt liquor heft.…

Rating: 2

Tags:

High-octane strong lager from oldest industrial Lithuanian brewer turns cheap malt liquor buzz to horrid hangover. Bargain basement 99 cents for 9.5% alcohol made prohibitive by overt boozy astringency and cloying caramel corn malting. Shoddily sticky pastry-like finish is nearly deplorable.…

Rating: 3.5

Tags:

Strong creamy-headed Thai sometimes sold under malt liquor banner maintains lingered barley-corn bittering and sourdough-y Scotch malt sweetness, staying ticklish on the tongue and mellow down the throat. ’07 tasting found clear pale lager increasing sharp-hopped wheat gluten stickiness burrowing through oxidized turpentine acidity. Compares favorably to bold Eastern Euro beers due to lofty malted grain pungency and tinny metallic twinge.…

Tags:

Sugar malt conviction and cereal grain bed given peppier sharp hop thrust than Hayward’s 2000 ‘model.’ Cotton-candied orange marmalade dots phenol alcohol remnant.…

Rating: 2

Tags:

Billowy phenol fizz and doughy sweetness initiate weary corn-sugared pale-bodied strong lager (sold in America under nebulous malt liquor category). Hop-spiced bitterness hides licorice trace beneath indistinguishable barleywine finish.…
