AVERAGE SCORE 11


Reviewed by Hartsmar 3/19/2005

COLOR BEFORE WATER 1/10
Bluish green. Very pale, cold and artificial.

LOUCHE ACTION 0/10
No louche at all.

COLOR AFTER WATER 0/10
What color? This is water with a slight touch of blue.

AROMA 6/30
Chewing gum and Windex in perfect harmony with a heavy smell of bad alcohol. After adding water nothing happened except the "sensation" was thinned out.

MOUTH-FEEL 3/10
A visit to the dentist has more mouth-feel than this.

TASTE 3/20
Still, chewing gum and alcohol. No more, no less.

OVERALL IMPRESSION impression 2/10
Why?!

COLOR BEFORE WATER 1/10
After so many years, it has faded a bit and is more on the bluish side, hence the score is too obvious. Purely artificial, if the information is given on the back label and for that 1 point-they are not hiding that.

LOUCHE ACTION 0/10
I don't recall it has ever louched, but I have given it a try using Tits Frozen Waer™.
1:1-none
1:2-none
1:3-none

no need for further tries.

COLOR AFTER WATER 1/10
Colourless with the faintest blue. Looks like vodka.

AROMA 3/30
Very poorly rectified lih, mint bubble gum, the essence of being artificial, it smells Pere Kermann akin. Unpleasant.

MOUTH-FEEL 1/10
Nasty and artificial

TASTE 1/20
Neat: alcoholic bubble gum, very uninviting. Watered: minty, horrid, sugar gets dominant

OVERALL IMPRESSION 0/10
Lack of thereof. Gorzka Żołądkowa z miętą tastes similar and is much cheaper and I do not drink it, either.

For shooting from a film can. Hilarious.

Works as an aphrodisiac, frat-girl has had an orgasm, or so it looked.

Maybe I should finally open my vintage Hill's? harhar.gif Hell, yes, an ad hoc review evill.gif

Just for the humor alone, our BG is well worth reading from beginning to end.
