Well its about time O.E. Jerked their Ass’s in line with St. Ide’s, Camo, and Steel Reserve, by making a Strong 40oz that will ’Set You Trippin’, (had me set trippin anyway), I just wished they hadn’t fucked with the label so much. I’m sure Easy E (were he still alive) would enjoy robbing one or two of these from ’Tha Stoe’ before slapping some bitch’s and flipping switches in his 64’. RIP my brother!

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Yummy amalgalm of skunk piss and dog crap. Highest ratio buzz/$ if you can bring yourself to have more than one sip of this s**t. Life is too short to waste your drinking potential on Olde English 800.

Say it ain’t so. How could you phase out OE? This stuff isn’t bad and puts the whoop on, but the bottle loses it’s charm and the flavor is a downgrade at the cost of more alcohol.

Well, times can be tough. Some of us need to try every swill in the world in order to drink something and have a chance to rate something when we can’t afford the good stuff. This is foul and strong. Nuff said.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2002
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Surprisingly inoffensive.

Good for a laugh, not for a good drink. Highly syruppy and malt alcohol ruin it. who knows whats in this thing. funny red gold color.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 It looks, smells and tastes like some kind of fuel, but the high percentage makes it all good. Olde English tastes much better though, and i could only find this in a 22 ounce size.
