What is "grain alcohol" ?

Grain alcohol is extremely strong alcohol that is often put in punch and similar products.  It is colourless and has virtually no taste or odour.  As opposed to beer, which is approximately 5-6% alcohol by volume, grain alcohol is 95% alcohol by volume.  Because of its high alcohol content, consuming grain alcohol may quickly lead to incapacitation or a lethal blood alcohol level.
