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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
