Wow, I did not realize how much of a chore it is to drink one of these. Wet corn-y aroma, flavor is really non-existant except for hints of cabbage and wet cardboard. Finish is quite sweet. Whoo-hoo!

Nothin beats sittin’ on the porch, drinkin’ some 8-ball. Well, okay... I can think of a lot of things that would beat drinking this nasty shit. It reminds me of the recording studio that my old band recorded at in crack town. Across the street was a Rite Aid with an armed guard in the parking lot that only sold malt liquor. Tons of OE. Nice neighborhood...

Now this shit here is my bread and butter. Olde English is the best malt out there and if you guzzle it by the 40, you’ll understand why Eazy-E and all the rest rap about the shit. It’s just the shit, nothing more to say. Now I heard rumors from people in other college towns that OE made an ’80’ (ounce bottle). I never got any confirmation of this, BUT, in my hometown, they did make 64 ounce bottles, and those things were just too cool. It was like drinking from a gallon sized milk jug. People were always impressed when you rolled into the party with them. OE will also get you hammered, I wish I could still get it by the can, but I guess they cut back distribution when Miller bought out G.Heilman a few years back... I miss you OE cans!!!!

I can’t imagine drinking 40oz of this regularly. Unfortunately I didn’t have any fallen homies to tip it for, so this was shared between 4 people (I know, we are SO ghetto). I wonder if the Belgian Monks tip a Westy when they lose one of theirs? I’d still take this over an A/B product any day.

Yo pass the 40 and a blunt! When desperate, I guess you would drink what your homie has in stock.

Not bad at all. I bought a 40 on a very hot day fishing. It was even good warm. Better cold though!

A quality malt liquor, the 64oz cans (if they still produce them) make a nice souvenir. Taste isn’t that offensive as long as it hasn’t been sitting around.
