It should be posted at the Lounge for the ramification of that clown who's been haunting the place with tales of chop.gif and Coors Light.

Other than Bruno's original rating of 4, I think so.

King of Spirits deserves a score on the negative end of the number line, even a zero is too generous, as it seems it was designed to be deliberately offensive. A shitty beer like PBR is just bad because they wanted to do something as cheaply as possible with beer-ish ingredients, but at the end of the day, it still very vaguely fits the term "beer" and could be identified as "Beer" by the average person.

Not so with King of Spirits. I challenge anyone who has tried even the most mediocre glass of absinthe to claim that King of Spirits resembles anything that slightly fits the definition of absinthe. King of Spirits is like a cruel practical joke, in which someone switched your drink with a bucket of dirty mop water combined with isopropyl alcohol when you weren't looking. The fact that they then charge that much $ for it is grounds that the makers should be shot.

According to http://www.laboheme.uk.com/

"Hills absinthe is made with herbal extracts, the main herb being wormwood (Artemisia absinthium). An emerald green absinthe drink with a distinctive bitter taste. Manufactured in the Czech Republic by Hills since 1920. Czech absinthe with the original Czech label.

Hills better than KOS?
