1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Rating #6300 thanks to womencantsail. 40oz of course. Clear light golden pour. Low carbonation dwindles to bubbles. Medium white soapy foam. Nose is overripe yellow apple, mealy apple, soap. Taste is soapy, not fusel thankfully, tons of dusty yellow apple. Powdery, mealy palate. Inoffensive, bland, not so bad. Lemon, dust, cardboard are better than cloying sugar, fusel alcohol, and rotting vegetables. Not bad. Donít think this one deserves worst beer in the world by a long shot.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A big fucken 40 oz bottle courtesy of The Hoff. Thanks, brohammed. Opened this bad boy up at a tasting. Everyone thought I just brought the regular Olde English Malt Liquor, but they couldnít have been further from the truth. Everyone seemed to change their tune when I pointed out the fine print on the bottle that revealed this was in fact the 3.2 ABW version. The crowd went silent, the hands came out, waiting for a pour of this elusive elixir. The beer itself looks much like the original: pale golden pour with a foamy white head. Pretty bland, unoffensive aroma. Smells mostly like corn and lemon peels. Maybe some soap, grass, and malt or grain. A bit on the watery side. The flavor is more of the same. Bland, a bit watery, but sweet. Some corn and grain flavors, a bit of lemon, and some soap. A touch of grassy hops, no bitterness, and none of that fusel alcohol that is so prevalent in malt liquors. Overall, this is pretty innocuous, but itís also pretty low boost. Like with most of these kinds of beers, the ratings on this one are exaggerated downward. This isnít so bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
40 ounce bottle via hoffdogbro. Been looking for this one for years, thanks Kyle! I must say Iíve been eyeing the picture on here for years and having been meaning to report it for quite some time. I highly doubt the lady in the picture is actually drinking the 3.2% beer, and is most likely drinking the regular old English 800. Oh well. As far as the beer, it starts off with a nice crack of the neck. As I pour it into my snifter I am greeted with notes of corn, caramel, and a bit of earthy bitterness that I find in a lot of American malt liquors. The low ABV is so odd on this. Itís watery, something I have only found in a few of the 100+ malt liquors that I have drank. Still though, Odeed is right, it tastes just like the original Old English 800, which is a fine drink on a budget. Flavors are muted, but it isnít distracting. Finish with snappy carbonation, more than I normally get from this style. As far as this beer goes, itís simple, refreshing, and...not bad at all. Why in the fuck this is the lowest rated beer on this site is beyond me. Itís certainly not impressive, but Iíve had hundreds if not thousands of craft beers at this point that vary from not as good as this to much, much worse.

Itís pretty much Olde English Light.Really nothing offensive about it and itís certainly drinkable.Especially if you do it in about 8 minutes on Youtube.I can think of way worse beers though.Just because itís light does not really make it offensive.

Strong notes of piss, cattiness, and generally offensive things. I hear this .rar whale comes from the gallows of Oklahoma. Not sure why prairie hasn't figured out how to do this. Drying finish, crisp.

Bottle. Pours a clear very pale gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of corn, wet and sweet grains. Flavor is very sweet with corn and grains and doesnít have much else to it.

Bottle from Soonerchamps, thanks! This was better than I expected, a real easy drinker. I am surprised its rated so poorly, it doesnít offer much that is disgusting. The bottle makes it very clear youíre drinking a 40oz beer and it was nice to share with a good sized group as we all got generous pours. Looking back, I wish I had drank more of this.

Fo-Tee ounce bottle shared by the Hoff! Light yellow pour, some carbonation and a corny aroma. Flavor is more corn and kind of metallic. No reason to drink this unless you just want a headache later on.
