In a 40, it is great for a night. Maybe not full of taste, but great for the cheap price.

Iím definitely going to rate this higher than others because I love malt liquor. The one Iím rating was a 40 I bought from the Huron Church location in Windsor. Iíve probably drank 200-300 of these in my life - anytime Iím drinking a 40 in Canada pretty much. The only thing I can complain about is the aroma - which is offensive. Thatís probably why Iíve never developed a habit of wafting my beer and Iím doing it on purpose now for my ratings here. Anyway, this stuff is delicious cold and you better drink it before it gets warm or youíre in trouble - thatís the problem most soft people have. Also, this is the OE available in Ontario because the OE in Ontario is 7.9% and not 6.1 or whatever the other beer on here is - that must be the American version.

So metallic it could be Metallica, but weíre talking the asskicking, early-80s Metallica, so swill the swill already. :)

I have been drinking Olde English 800 since I was young, I love this beer in the 40oz bottles, there is nothing better than letting one of these sit in the frezzer for a half hour then listening to the frist crack of the cap, this stuff goes down smooth when really cold and packs a punch for a cheap price.

What can I say about the Ghetto Juice. I think itís damn good because of the price, but as far a good tasting beer, meh. Itís done me good over the years.

A: Since itís a clear 40, thereís really no pour required to see the appearance. A rather dark color for malt liquor, golden with a rocky white head. S: The smell is sweet and rather unoffensive. Actually some notes of bananas along with the usual tooth-rotting sweetness. Apple juice, corn syrup, corn, and even a little bit of a sweet bread aroma. T: A rather pleasant flavor, too. Sweet banana bread, apple juice, and corn syrup. A bit of a malty character to this beer which is sort of a welcome surprise. M: The body is quite full for a malt liquor. The carbonation might be lacking a little bit, unfortunately, though. D: I had my fill of this and shared it with friends (it was a buddyís birthday and it was a "40s" party). All agreed this was a pretty damn good malt liquor.

Say it ainít so. How could you phase out OE? This stuff isnít bad and puts the whoop on, but the bottle loses itís charm and the flavor is a downgrade at the cost of more alcohol.

I got this at a little deli with take-out beer in Allentown. Served the traditional way, with the 40-oz bottle sheathed in a brown paper bag. Since this sort of thing is most often consumed this way, I see little point in doing otherwise. Golden-yellow, a white head forms when I open the cap but it diminishes. Aroma oddly similar to Spam or canned corned beef. Medium to light-bodied. Fairly sweet, with notes of malt, Tostitos, and a little alcohol. Vague hop presence. Slightly fruity; did they use top-fermenting yeast? Thereís actually an unnervingly Belgianesque quality to this, kind of like if one of the less scrupulous macros tried to imitate Duvel or Delirium Tremens. I kind of like this; I do have a soft spot in my heart for malt liquor for some reason (memories of sitting around with my friends in the back room of a beer store in Florida) and this is one of the better malt liquors Iíve tried.

Sugary get you bent like a mawf*cka quick! Personally, I can stand the skunky cheap taste, but not everyone can handle this high-octane, low on taste brew.
