Here I am, stranded in a wanna-be city, within striking distance of Ratings Slot #38 but having sampled all the good beer that’s locally available. So here I sit with the 8-ball. I guess it’s time to go to Europe -- not to view the topless confections in St. Tropez, or to consider the blood of the martyrs in the Coliseum, but to hit the UK pubs and the brauhauses of Bavaria. Oh, yeah, the rating: buy King Cobra instead. dankfor20 (193) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 27, 2002
man i had this on a bike ride with about 25 people it was cheap and at the corner store we rolled up on. i already drank a bunch a stouts so it didn’t taste all that bad and i was thirsty so it went down. but man i would never drink this any other way. heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUN 24, 2002
Wow, I did not realize how much of a chore it is to drink one of these. Wet corn-y aroma, flavor is really non-existant except for hints of cabbage and wet cardboard. Finish is quite sweet. Whoo-hoo! mwsf (360) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 19, 2002
Nothin beats sittin’ on the porch, drinkin’ some 8-ball. Well, okay... I can think of a lot of things that would beat drinking this nasty shit. It reminds me of the recording studio that my old band recorded at in crack town. Across the street was a Rite Aid with an armed guard in the parking lot that only sold malt liquor. Tons of OE. Nice neighborhood... VTIrishman99 (64) - Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2002
Now this shit here is my bread and butter. Olde English is the best malt out there and if you guzzle it by the 40, you’ll understand why Eazy-E and all the rest rap about the shit. It’s just the shit, nothing more to say. Now I heard rumors from people in other college towns that OE made an ’80’ (ounce bottle). I never got any confirmation of this, BUT, in my hometown, they did make 64 ounce bottles, and those things were just too cool. It was like drinking from a gallon sized milk jug. People were always impressed when you rolled into the party with them. OE will also get you hammered, I wish I could still get it by the can, but I guess they cut back distribution when Miller bought out G.Heilman a few years back... I miss you OE cans!!!!

I couldn’t even finish my glass. Dogbrick (12928) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2002
I can’t imagine drinking 40oz of this regularly. Unfortunately I didn’t have any fallen homies to tip it for, so this was shared between 4 people (I know, we are SO ghetto). I wonder if the Belgian Monks tip a Westy when they lose one of theirs? I’d still take this over an A/B product any day. qwikstreet (43) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2002
Yo pass the 40 and a blunt! When desperate, I guess you would drink what your homie has in stock. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2002

Not bad at all. I bought a 40 on a very hot day fishing. It was even good warm. Better cold though!
