COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

In my limited experience with this kind of "beer", I'd managed to find a handful that were bad but not as gross as I was expecting, and that was it. I was starting to think that my pre-conception that these types of beers would have to be just awful was wrong! And then I tried this trash. Disgustingly adjuncty sweet, even when cold. Grainy with alcoholic burn, a bit like gasoline. I drank as much as I could and instead of a buzz, I got a headache; clearly fusel-laden. Corny yellow color with enormous head, I have a hard time believing that's natural.

There used to be an after-hours bar open in town, in a crappy metal pole-building type of thing. It was a really awful place, and once around 3am (bars close at 1am here) my friend asked the guy behind the bar for a forty of OE Ice as a joke. Homeboy at the bar pulled out a cold forty of this crap, unscrewed it, and handed it to my friend. Two dollars. I guess the ABV here is higher than regular OE, so if you HAD to drink one of these it might be more worthwhile. There's nothing else to be said here.

"High gravity"="High quality"??? I don't think so. "High gravity" means just that - drink this stuff in any considerable quantity and your ass will end up on the floor, one way or another. That being said, if you're looking to get bombed, then by all means, knock yourself out, cuz it doesn't take much. I've met few people who've managed to knock back two of these 40s without having to "return to sender" so to speak.

Pale yellow in colour. Corn aroma, very sweet malt and lots of alcohol. Flavour was all alcohol sweetness. Finishes with a very harsh alcohol bitterness. Brutal stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Yummy amalgalm of skunk piss and dog crap. Highest ratio buzz/$ if you can bring yourself to have more than one sip of this s**t. Life is too short to waste your drinking potential on Olde English 800.

Bottled skunk. Tastes like what you’d expect and after a few gives you the results you’d expect. College kids, dorm rooms and HG800 are a match made, well in college.
