I have defintely had worse Malt Liquors. Has a sweet not unappealing aroma. Brief soapy white head - a tad bit of lacing. Appearance is very dark golden to light orange - a bit of bubble action going on. Alcohol is hidden very well - I expected something akin to rubbing alcohol when I bought it. A bit of a sweet malty flavor without an aftertaste - what more can you ask from a cheap malt liquor and a quick buzz. I'll never buy again - but I left impressed!

It's not too bad. Good alcohol content. It seems a little thick but after one you can drink it all night.

OK. So I had a cheap night of PBR and this, whatever it is. At first smell it doesn't seem like it is going to be that bad, then holy shit you take a swig and the malts taste like they were shat out and sprinkle with honey. It took all of my energy to finish this one and have my drunken night.

(Bottle) Another case of quantity not quality; though this beer isn't 'piss poor' it is pretty bad. The fact they package it in a clear 1.18 L bottle scared me off the draw. Pours a medium white head and golden body... depending how long you pour for. The bottle is naturally designed to pour as much head as needed to spill over - small mouth, straight sided wall, 1.18 litres of fluid passing through a small mouth. Skunk aroma with slight malt. Tastes of poorly brewed beer. Finish, well, it couldn't come quick enough! Avoid. This should be found in a can not a bottle.

to me, not at good as the 211, but the OE high gravity will get the job done. the taste is another aquired one as the 8 Ball has a very distinct taste, but if you like it...you like it. for the price and the alcohol percentage...damn how can you pass this us. all you need is 5 bucks and you can crack two 211's or 2 OE's and you're money. overall this is a bomb ass brew. and really...if you are gonna taste test a freakin 40, shiet come on now. its a damn forty...grab a paper bag, crack the top and dont forget to finish the ass.

A Belgian Prostitute from Missouri. Just to pass the 75 charecter limit i'll call it painfully sharp.

Corn and alcohol aroma, straw colour with a large head, has nice lace. Harsh alcohol taste and feel. A really tough beer to drink.
