Never got the point. It is a high school beer for people who can not get the real stuff. The can is not even very convincing. At least it does not have stuff floating in it.

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

Big Olí 4-0 at Blippsmas! Pours a clear corn gold with a thin white head. Grain on the nose, a bit of sweetness. Medium-bodied, slightly sweet, a bit of grain, watery and empty. Bitterness on the finish. Not a lot going on.

Bottle from DeyHolla. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy malts, faint sweet corn, and a quick finish. Actually relatively clean. Not that bad at all.

Bottle at Blippsmas. Pours clear yellow with white head. Nose and taste of corn, tortilla chips and light skunk water. Inoffensive enough. Water thin body.

GT2 (8242) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
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.

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.

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.

Odeed (1775) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 5, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

7/13/13. 40oz thanks to deyholla! Clear pale golden with a small offwhite head. Skunky aroma, corn, burnt caramel, and tortilla chips... and water. Meh.
