I’m not sure why this beer is so universally hated by the ratebeer community. Its as if people expected a beer with its reputation, and produced by miller, to be complex and full of flavour. It is what it is intended to be; a light, slightly sweet, high alcohol adjunct beer, meant to be consumed in bulk. The 24 or 40 oz vessel means it is the gift that keeps on giving; once you finish a glass there is no guilt in filling another. Afterall, you cant leave the can/bottle unfinished! this drink is all about excess, intoxication and sin. After a day of enjoying the Vegas strip, I cant think of anything more appropriate

The first the I did in America was to pick up one of these notorious bottles. Please forgive me. Taste is grainy, metallic, alcoholic, the body surprisingly thin for the alcohol content. Everyone seems to be hating, but come on, Olde English is special ;)

Quite possibly the WORST beer in the world. I know I’ve been critical of cheap beers and almost always go for the more high end expensive stuff, but this beer is one of those you try just for the experience. Like when you have friends over and you cut a nasty fart and invite them all to come smell it. Yeah, this beer is just that deplorable!
Upon merely looking at it, you can pretty much guess it’s as cheap as it comes. The smell was a watery metallic, almost acidic with a dash of rotten eggs, and the taste was a light sickly sweet taste with a metallic finish. Appears of dark urine, which should have been an indicator for me to avoid.
I may drink this again just to remind myself why I shouldn’t.lol

Dark yellow. White head. Drank as cold as possible. Minimal aroma, just sorta of a light stale beer smell. Light body. Sweet. Grain and corn. Dirty finish. Most of the unpleasantness goes away after the first few glugs.

Drank while at UPT in Del Rio, Texas -- A 40 in Texas why not? Still tastes like I remember from college. Thin and watery.

Why’d I try this a while ago. Clear pale yellow. The taste of nothing sponsored by nothing featuring nothing and the nothings.
I’m quite frankly impressed that they were able to make a beer with this much alcohol and have it taste that watery. Must have been aliens.

Hmm. For a higher alcohol level this isn’t as bad as Steel Reserve and other high alcohol malt liquors. It’s got a taste to it too, one that is there beside the expected sweetness and alcohol. Perhaps it’s the skunk factor, but whatever it is it offsets the usual gross same-ness. Drank straight from a 16 ounce can

The stories I have heard have all been of ferociously unapproachable beer, designed for the one purpose to mainline alcohol into bloodstreams for the usually ill reason than to do as much damage as possible. My opinion is coloured by a beer that I truly deem to be the worst I have experienced in the world - and Indonesian beer named El Diablo, fraught with herbicide and unwanted pregnancies. Same colour of corn-like golden with a temporary head. Aroma is as artificial grain as I am unlucky to get. There’s corn syrup and regret here. The flavour is sweet and like taking a bite out of cornstarch. It is slightly drier, but no more drinkable than the Indonesian doppleganger. Ugh. Beer for the homeless and those drinking to end their lives slowly.

Have to admit this is better than what I was expecting (which was not much). This is a boring bland beer with very little flavour, which I am guessing at 7.5% alc is the appeal.

Can to snifter. Nose is mostly corn. Not much apple like most. Amazingly not skunked. Canned malt likka is the best. Slightly sweet and not that alcoholic. Corn lingers. Long corn finish.
