Why bother making a beer whose only use is to get you drunk and then make it at such a low abv that youíd have to drink a ton of them to even get drunk? Seems like solid logic to me!

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.

The infamous "8 Ball". This brings me back to high school and the Bonfare Market in Oakland. 69 cents would get you a forty. That was way too much money for this.

Brilliantly clear pale straw yellow color with no head. Very light malty and adjunct aroma. Crisp, refreshing, clean, light malt, lightly corny, pretty tasty.

lamest, wack attempt for wannabe malt liquor drinkers to get their intake of OE. A fruit beer, no, a fruitís beer yeah. Even the lamest of drinkers from my neighborhood wont drink this bitch-beer.

I fail to see how this can be served to the masses... consciously. Terrible color, gut-renching flavor. Aroma... blah. Save the money and buy a bottle of Phillips Vodka in the plastic container.... people that drink this are only drinking it for one reason. They have no taste buds.

Iíll admit it. I tried it. It was HORRIBLE. Leaves a bad aftertaste. Drink only when you are in desperate need of getting drunk and you canít find mouthwash.
