40oz shatter proof bottle (with finger grip feature on back of bottle) from Wal-Mart, poured into a Bellís Snifter. Golden hue, 1/2" thick white fizzy mostly lasting head. Excellent lacing. Corn, water, frontline flea and tick killer for dogs aroma. Strong sweet corn and malt up front with the same finish. Medium carbonation on the palate. I think the total for this with tax was around $2.00.

24 oz. can. Pours a dead-looking pale yellow-gold with an inch of frothy white head. Notes of sweet cereal, creamed corn, white bread, sugar, lemon, and straw. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Another average malt liquor.

40 oz clear shatter-proof. Serving sie: 5 fl oz. 8 servings per cuntainer. Ahh no skunk upon un-twisting the cap, thanks miller proprietary hops. Small fizzy white head, golden body. Smell is earthgrain, canned corn, and 3.99 sherry. Man the flavor is poor, sweet, vomity corn, vomitberry smoothie, not entirely alcoholic and astringent but it is awful. Tried whipping the empty at the sidewalk, didnít break, genius.

24 oz. can picked up locally from notes. 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, some metallic character. This was not very good.

Skunky aroma, but not overbearing. Clear gold, minimal head. Sticky sweet, not particularly strong aftertaste, but seems to leave a film on the lips. I have fond memories of the original Olde English, but this is a downgrade in several ways. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"beer #2 - ghetto tasting: less skunky in aroma than the Colt, otherwise not all that different. Flavor is just as horrid. I guess in a pinch Iíd pick this one, though they score the same."

Can share thanks Homer. Pours golden with white head. Aroma of corn and boost. Taste is corn, yellow, burn, tough one.

Can from Frank!!! Nose is strong adjunct and apple. Pour is a clear golden yellow with a small lingering white head. Taste is super sweet and candy like. Ugh. Way too sweet.

40oz bottle. Poured clear gold with a big white head. Light grainy aroma. Medium body with quite a creamy mouthfeel that finishes with a warming alcohol feel. Sweet grainy malt flavour with alcohol. Not the worst beer Iíve had.
