0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This beer sucks. Nothing good about this other than it’s cheap and is fun to play Edward 40 Hands. The smell is horrible. The taste is horrible. (Especially in a 40 oz, the last swig to end it is always the hardest) When I was poor, this was my drink of choice but now I can affoard some better brews and it’s totally worth it than buying this trash.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear 22oz bottle shared at Cotteridge II as Olde English 800. Many thanks to MacBoost and the West Mild-lands crew for this one. Clear yellow, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is corn, rug, malt sugars. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Taste is cardboard, corn, pale biscuit. Pretty insipid. Yep, not great. (1.8)

40’s and blunts, kid! College made us do strange things... like drink this. Oddly enough, I could probably down one just for nostalgia. No longer the go-to!

Originally rated on 5/29/08. Ah 8-ball, those were the days.. Havent had this one in several years, anyway a stickey sweet aroma and taste of malts pretty much sums it up, one of the better malt liqors. It is what it is- a cheap quick buzz, although i always prefered st. ides to o.e

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a fairly robust white head. Aroma is boiled cereal and a bit of hops. Taste is sweet pale malt, corn and just a tad of hops. Not the best, but not the worst.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Deep golden, with a smooth fine poring head. Aromas of sweet bread, malt, barnyard-dust develop. Soft carbonation, slick with a light-medium body.
Mainly sweet with a touch of bitterness on the roof of the palate. Sweet medium finish. Not much to it, really.
