40oz bottle. Poured clear gold with a big white head. Light grainy aroma. Medium body with quite a creamy mouthfeel that finishes with a warming alcohol feel. Sweet grainy malt flavour with alcohol. Not the worst beer Iíve had.

24 oz. can. Pours a dead-looking pale yellow-gold with an inch of frothy white head. Notes of sweet cereal, creamed corn, white bread, sugar, lemon, and straw. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Another average malt liquor.

40 oz clear shatter-proof. Serving sie: 5 fl oz. 8 servings per cuntainer. Ahh no skunk upon un-twisting the cap, thanks miller proprietary hops. Small fizzy white head, golden body. Smell is earthgrain, canned corn, and 3.99 sherry. Man the flavor is poor, sweet, vomity corn, vomitberry smoothie, not entirely alcoholic and astringent but it is awful. Tried whipping the empty at the sidewalk, didnít break, genius.

24 oz. can picked up locally from notes. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small disappearing white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy malt, corn, some weird chemical note, some metallic character. This was not very good.

Skunky aroma, but not overbearing. Clear gold, minimal head. Sticky sweet, not particularly strong aftertaste, but seems to leave a film on the lips. I have fond memories of the original Olde English, but this is a downgrade in several ways. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"beer #2 - ghetto tasting: less skunky in aroma than the Colt, otherwise not all that different. Flavor is just as horrid. I guess in a pinch Iíd pick this one, though they score the same."

Can share thanks Homer. Pours golden with white head. Aroma of corn and boost. Taste is corn, yellow, burn, tough one.

Can from Frank!!! Nose is strong adjunct and apple. Pour is a clear golden yellow with a small lingering white head. Taste is super sweet and candy like. Ugh. Way too sweet.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 24oz can, bought from a Kroger located in a more urban location. Best by September 1, 2014. Clear golden, slightly orange color. Good thin off-white head, retains well. Leaves good ropes and bits of lace. Looks pretty decent. Medium body. Kind of smooth texture, light to moderate carbonation, light bite to the texture. Lightly slick. Lightly drying finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, light bite in the finish... Not as bad as expected. Pretty solid for an 8% malt liquor, really. Bready flavor, lightly peppery, not much more to the aroma beyond that. Not too much offensive about it. Just a light mustiness, light hint of metallic, but surprisingly clean overall, especially for an 8%ír. Solid stuff. One of the better malt liquors Iíve ever had, hides the alcohol well. Actually managed to kill the whole can myself without much of an issue.
