I got this at a little deli with take-out beer in Allentown. Served the traditional way, with the 40-oz bottle sheathed in a brown paper bag. Since this sort of thing is most often consumed this way, I see little point in doing otherwise.
Golden-yellow, a white head forms when I open the cap but it diminishes. Aroma oddly similar to Spam or canned corned beef. Medium to light-bodied. Fairly sweet, with notes of malt, Tostitos, and a little alcohol. Vague hop presence. Slightly fruity; did they use top-fermenting yeast? There’s actually an unnervingly Belgianesque quality to this, kind of like if one of the less scrupulous macros tried to imitate Duvel or Delirium Tremens. I kind of like this; I do have a soft spot in my heart for malt liquor for some reason (memories of sitting around with my friends in the back room of a beer store in Florida) and this is one of the better malt liquors I’ve tried.

Light golden color with a bubbly popcorn colored head. Very light grain and malt aroma, with a touch of sweet floral and alcohol. Alcohol rather subdued compared to other of this ilk. Light sweet start and then once again here comes the alcohol. While present not nearly as predominant as others. Touch harsh and nutty pith finish. Light wine component late in the quaff. My guts are going to explode tomorrow after this line up.

This is a malt liquor that will knock your socks off. No positive attributes just that you will have a quick buzz, but is that the point? For those that want that feel, by all means, try this.

I like the fact that Old E HG is strong! After two forties your done for the night... lying down in the street waiting for someone to come and piss on you. Other than that, it tastes like crap. Wait... one more thing I liked. It costs $2.80 here in utah for a forty. Not bad for the punch that follows.

Poured from a 22oz can. Looks like urine with a small head. Aroma is very aritifical and corny. Flavor is like Olde English but more offensive. Thin body with suspect swallow. Not very good.

Used to drink this stuff down in Georgetown, under the Key Bridge. Usually, we'd just pay some homeless dude to go into Dixie Liquors for us and get a couple 40s apiece. After a couple of these, we we're ready to make nusiences of ourselves along M Street in all the expensive stores full of yuppies. Memories....
Actually not to bad by ghetto malt liquor standards. A step above St. Ides and the like.

Argh this was nasty. I hadn't had this in quite some time, and now I know why. Head was there, and gone again just as quick, and it smelt like corn and alcohol. Tastes of alcohol and I got some sort of fruity taste, but it tasted like canned fruit that had lead in it. Stay away!

"High gravity"="High quality"??? I don't think so. "High gravity" means just that - drink this stuff in any considerable quantity and your ass will end up on the floor, one way or another. That being said, if you're looking to get bombed, then by all means, knock yourself out, cuz it doesn't take much. I've met few people who've managed to knock back two of these 40s without having to "return to sender" so to speak.
