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.

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.

Tasted on 3/3/13 from a 24oz can purchased at a gas station. Pours clear golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to a thin layer of lace. The nose is very simple corn malt with just a touch of doughy yeast. The flavor is the same, with some corny malt and light bitterness, much more neutral than I expected. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and a short corn malt finish.

It enjoys a ’diverse consumer base linked together by an urban mindset’ Ah, how subtle the codification of stereotypes has become. Corny, metallic, and weirdly yeasty is how I’d describe the smell. It’s light yellow, and gives off lots of head if you pour it like a jerk. Frozen corn ice-beer flavor, but it’s too wet to be an ice lager. Pretty mellow stuff overall, not distinct flavorwise or otherwise. Beats out AB’s offensive offerings like Hurricane HG and King Cobra, but not up to par with favorite Private Stock., which I will give a higher than average review to some day.
