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.

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.

I had one goal when I bought this beer. I wanted to forget about my son Squeek’s pornography collection. And by God, this did it. High Gravity lived up to its name by pulling me to the floor in a matter of minutes. Three Cheers for OE-HG!!!! Please visit www.public.iastate.edu/~jgdyoung

I’m not sure why I bought this. Maybe I was going through some phase were I wanted my nut hair to fall out, or maybe I was just feeling like getting my ass kicked. Either way, I think I’d rather go downtown and pay a bum to shove this 40oz bottle up my ass than to drink any more of it. This may be a good practical joke beer, or it might just be like brushing your teeth with wasabe. If it’s a high alchohol content you want, I beg of you, just go buy some nice barley wine and keep your stomache lining.

VTIrishman99 (64) - Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2002
While not as good as OE, I recently found this one in the tall cans at a small convenience and scooped it up. The shit was expensive, like $1.50/master cylinder! But when I cracked it, I was initially impressed, but as I continued, I found the beer to have a sickly sweet taste to it, and while it was still superior to most malt liquors, it definitely doesnt match the original 8-ball.

Smooth, malty... but not overly sweet with the typical dog breath finish I find with most ML’s. it kept its carbonation, and went down easy... not a bad malt liquor. I decided to try it at the lake catfishing. The only thing I caught was a buzz.

There’s just no excuse for drinking this crap! Nasty.
