From the 40oz bottle, shared by Jay. Clear golden color, Decent thin white head around the edge, with some dots of lace. Not horrible corn nose, having a hard time finding the fruit here. Skunky gummy finish, makes me want to reach for a glass of water. Poured my self a half a snifter for the first taste, and Iím struggling to finish that. Why bother when I have a Torpedo IPA within arms reach? ... For science, thatís why (the IPA will serve as my chaser). Kind of a chemically taste. Milk? Some sweet, light bitter, moderate sour taste. Smooth, lighter carbonation, but a really weird bite. Some cardboard. Ok, Iím done. The amount of people that have given this 5ís is hilarious. A lot of people seem to love it because Eazy E drank it. He probably got free cases of it sent to him on the regular

This one has some aroma, flavor, and overall qualities. Not something Iíd drink again, but a real lifesaver in my college years at Penn State.

Bottle. Poured yellowish gold with a white head. Aroma was sweet and corny. Flavor was sweet and corny as well with a bit of a metallic taste. Was very thick on the tongue.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Oh goddamn this sucks. Pale gold pour. Aroma and taste of skunky corn and grass. Disgusting.

40 oz. bottle. Maybe the worst of the worst in malt liquors. Most commonly drunk out of paper bags. This is as bad as it gets. Good luck making it to the bottom without throwing up. I didnít.

Poured clear gold with weak bright white head. The aroma is sweet, corn flakes and hints of metal. The flavor is very mild and watery. The taste goes from sugary sweetness to vague bitterness to corn flakes and then back to sweetness. Seems to be very low in ABV. After that big bottle it felt as if I could have been drinking tap water.

Thanks to Blake and Jenny for the 40.. couldíve used a little help drinking it. Poured straight out of the 40 into my mouth.. apple juice yellow in the clear glass. The aroma picked up corn and sweet pale malt.. really not offensive (at least when it was cold, right out of the fridge). The flavor found similar.. sweet creamed corn, pale malts, and a little cardboard, with prickly carbonation throughout.. sweet and a little sticky on the finish. Light-bodied with lots oí carbonation throughout.. almost creamy on the middle.. OK overall feel, but the big carbo made it hard to drink fast enough.

OLD-E, has some features that I will never forget; the omnipresent skunky smell, the sickly sweet nature of the body, and the nasty head which is like soap in many ways. Sure itís stronger than some, but 5.9% is not anywhere near enough to drink this.

"sorry...not feeling ghetto here. havenít drank this swill in a long while, but i remember itís a prime example of the unsettled debate...is it better to drink a crappy watery beer, or a crappy stronger beer. no escaping the "flavor" here, and thatís not a good thing. this stuff is foul."

40 oz bottle shared with some family because there was no way I could drink this all by myself. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small disappearing white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy malt, corn, some weird chemical note. This was not very good.
