Miller introduced a new Olde English brand extension, Olde English HG800, in the fall of 2001. HG means "High Gravity," a brewing industry term associated with high-quality beer. Olde English HG800 will replace the Olde English Ice brand. The alcohol content is 7.91%

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.

Bottle. A - Not a bad pour. Very light apple juice colored gold with a large, light, fluffy, sticky, bright white head. Somewhat thick, very good retention, and a decent patchy lace. S - Pretty subdued. Sweet corn and malt with a touch of cooked vegetable. Some of that overly sweet, slightly tart and acidic apple, but not in a good way. Slight alcohol. T - Typical malt liquor flavors. Sweet corn and malt flavors. A lot of sweet candish apple mid sip toward the finish. A bit of a cooked vegetable flavor as well. A bit of an off floralish flavor. Definite grainy finish. M - Light, thin body with average carbonation. Dry, sticky finish. D - Not offensive, but no where near easy to drink. Sweet, alcoholy, and a touch cloying/sticky. Not easy to drink plenty of. Notes: Meh, not overly impressed, but what I more or less expected. Average high gravity malt liquor. Overly sweet with corn and apple and alcohol.

Sampled from a 40 oz bottle of course, is there any other way? Pour a little on the ground for the homies that canít drink with you, add a little orange juice and you and your brass monkey are off to the races. Tape one to each hand, next stop blackoutville.
