Ok, so it stinks a little. Still highly palatable with a hint of cardboard box.

When I think Ole-E I think homeless... sometimes I like being homeless. Drink a sixer of these in the 24oz can and forget your troubles.

I had to re-rate this beer. Sitting with one in my hand, I feel almost like God. Yup... so what if some of the area are overrated by me, the overall beer scores a 30.
Original rating: The best of the malt liquor 40’s. My second ever 40 and the one that got me headed towards thicker, stouts and ambers rather than towards Budweiser, which I had been told was the king of beers. There’s nothing as cool looking as a 40 of 8-ball in your hand. It drinks quite well and has a nasty little kick to it. Many people knock malt liquor, but I’d take it over mainstream, watered down swill anyday.

Just a really great malt liquour. Nice price, doesnt' beat Colt 45 but comes awful close. Hold this one by your side during those tough nights.

This is truly ghetto Malt Liquor at its pinicle, there are better and stronger 40s out there, but The 8 Ball still remains a staple of the Bitch-Slappin Crew, I’ve went a few rounds with O’l E, but because of the low alchol content, I’ve always come out on top, Though not a ass-kicking 40 by its ’fuck-you-up’ ability, Easy E’s favorite brew still gets ’yo breath stinkin’, it also looks sooo good in a Brown Paper bag, plus the fact that it it’s still cheap dosen’t hurt. If your going out to the club, perhaps a drive-by, or somthing of that sort, where getting blitzed isn’t a great idea, drink some 8 Ball, but pour a little on the ground for EASY first.

A near perfect malt liquor. To be sipped from a 40 ONLY. In college, we used to play Edward Fortyhands with these, where you duct tape a 40 to each hand and can’t take either one off until you’ve finished both. Good times. What a champion malt liquor.
