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

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!

In Canada we don’ty call anything HG. It comes to us imported in 40oz 1.18L bottles olny. No can’s and coast a pricy 5.80 drank alot of these in my day’s. I tryed the 5. something american version once in can and once in bottle both from Buffalo NY. Fav version is Buffalo’s 5. something in a bottle(can made it watery)The 8% version is awsome too,but sometimes I get super fucked up while on it and have finished the 40 off and gotten high bassicly while blacked out from it. Suposably I am aware of what was going on but know nothing about it.(well few times I saw video’s on cam,so knew what happened later next day)It’s good shit but pricy as fuck in Canada!

Compared to Steel Reserve it’s alot smoother. Not as sweet as Camo Lager. Still a good malt liqour and at .99 a double duece that’s a sweet deal.

If I can’t get a Camo or a steel reserve, this is my next choice. The taste is actually pretty good. It goes down ok, but it gets you going good !!! This is another beer great for budget nights.

Luckily, this sample, poured from a 40 oz. clear glass bottle was neither skunked or spoiled. Olde English High Gravity 800 has a very thick, white head, a deep, golden appearance, and a rather high carbonation level. Aroma is pungent, corny, and even bready. The taste is rich, spicy, and fruity, but not overly sweet or alcoholic. Mouth-feel is crisp and medium. OE HG 800 is smooth and refreshing; one of the better malt liquors on the market. Unfortunately, it has a limited distribution (not available in Louisiana). I liked it and would recommend it. RJT

This "beer" is delicious if you want to get F***ed up. That is the one and only purpose behind it. As far as high percentage malt liquor beers go, this is the best.
