Clear yellow with a raging white head. Aroma of grains and yeast. Taste is sweet as honey & yeasty as bread. Naked Booze flavor too. Some band aid flavor. Maybe this will improve if I splash a little unblended lambic into it...

Aroma of barley and grains. See through copper color. Caramel biscuit malt with a slightly noticeable alcohol presence. Nothing else to it.

Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 24oz can as part of the Thunderbird malt liquor tasting. It pours a seductable golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose is white musk, spice, rotten apple and hooker perfume. The taste is sweetcorn, corn syrup, garbage, sugar and rotten fruit with a nasty compost finish. Light body, maximum damage. Lives up to the hype.

I’ll start by mentioning, that, compared to its competitor (Colt 45 8%), that OE is just a step above. Why? It all comes down to the taste. I personally find OE much smoother to drink and has a much less pronounced metallic taste. You don’t drink this kind of beer for the taste. There is no "taste" aspect in this beer. If you wanna get drunk and do it cheap, then crack open that 40 and let the good times- uh, I mean, sick-to-your-stomach-if-you-drink-the-whole-thing times roll.... Nice thing to add about this beer is that it’s enough to get you really, really drunk, but not enough to give you alcohol poisoning. Kind of like a safety switch. UNLESS of course you’re a 12 year old who’s never drank before.. stick to the palm bay little kids (on second thought maybe I should say wait until you’re 18/19/21)

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 I use to buy this when i was in High School for a cheap drunk night. Funny days and stories to tell from this beer, but for drinking to actually enjoy the taste....I would not recommend this beer to anyone.

Drank from the bottle. Tastes metallic. I’d prefer old mud when I’m looking for a cheep drunk, but this does the trick every once in a while.

This actually was not as bad as I was expecting. Started off almost drinkable, but a terrible light yellow color with no head. It is like drinking water that is pretending to be beer. Gets worse as it gets warmer, highly recommend drinking very quickly.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2013
Aroma of corn syrup and brackish water. Pours like a urinal with a gross film. Taste is corn chip and stale bread. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

My go to 40oz. Kick’s Steel Reserve’s ass for sure. Have you ever poured some Gatorade in that fucker? Shit’s pretty tight.
