Originally rated June 2005. This famous malt liqueur is quoted at 8% ABV on the bottle, here in Canada. Starts off on a nice note, with a golden colour and a white fizzy head that stays a while and leaves good lacing. The aroma is of sweet malt and heavy alcohol. Mouthfeel is kind of syrupy. The taste starts off smooth and then goes through a corn syrup and then falls into a burning finish of alcohol. Somewhere in there, I sometime get a plastic finish... that is gross. Excellent brew.... for the crass off the street. Glad I tried... for a second time, 10 years after. Still bad.

It pours a clean copper color with a decent sized off-white head that leaves some great lacing throughout the glass. Oh my God this smells amazing! Thereís a smell of citrus, floral and piney hops a great grapefruit scent with some pineapple and other tropical fruits and even a little bit of peach, thereís even some sweet maltiness that sneaks in, they need to make a cologne and perfume that smells like this beer! The taste is equally amazing, the big combination of citrus, floral and piney hops come in beautifully with the tropical fruits thereís a slight malty sweetness that combines with the sweetness of the tropical fruit that balances perfectly with the hoppiness. The mouthfeel is amazing, itís sticky itís thick and satisfying yet itís smooth and refreshing the alcohol is nearly nonexistant except for a slight warmth. Overall this beer is amazing and I cannot find a single fl-...Oh, wait, never mind. I thought I was rating "Pliny the Elder". Never mind.

I love love love part of the commercial description listed here: "HG means "High Gravity," a brewing industry term associated with high-quality beer." Silly me, I thought it meant high-alcohol, cheap, crappy beer, but of COURSE it goes hand in hand with notions of quality. Thatís why all the great craft brewers include "HG" and "High Gravity" in the names of all their best concoctions! OE HG800 is certainly not something delicious that I want to put in my mouth over and over again. Cheap, fairly sweet and adjuncty, 8% abv, and gets you instant props from your homies. Worse tasting than regular OE800, but doesnít seem as heavy and corny. My homeboys on da culdesac laughed at me and made paper bag jokes, but in a lovable, comical way, I think. This is probably good for when you just want to get crunked up rather than look badd drinking a 40. Will not buy again.

24oz can. Clear piss yellow, fizzy white head. Mostly corn, sweetness, boozy, thatís about it. There are better malt liquor for your fix.

Drank chilled, as Iím sure it was intended. Corniness and watery with some weird aftertastes. However, itís not as awful as one might expect. I could get well wasted on this brew in a hurry, which means it serves its purpose rather well.

Tasted from tall-boy can into snifter. Poured a pale yellow color with fluffy white head which dissipated quickly leaving some lace. Aroma of pale malt, lots of corn, no hops, no yeast esters but harsh alcohol. Flavor was worse: corny, soapy, watery and offensive. Just plain bad, even if there are far worse malt liquors.

Aroma was similar to that of cheap beer and stomach acids. Didnít look as bad as it tasted, the flavor was offensive. The only reason one should purchase this, is to use it for itís alcohol content

Big ass bottle from Fratto. I brought my small tasting glass and could take no more than 6 oz. :) Pours a clear straw color, with hardly any carbonation. Aroma is corny, alcohol, grains and sweet rice. Flavor of hurt. Grains, alcohol, sharp flavors that burn the throat. Ugh.

40oz from a gas station in Troy, TX. Carefully poured into my Single Malt Scotch Association snifter. Light orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma is just grainy and kinda weird. Taste is painfully sweet, ,alcohol, and what I assume is sweat from the underside of a mountain manís breast.
