Ok, so it stinks a little. Still highly palatable with a hint of cardboard box. charliemike99 (6) - USA - JAN 9, 2002 does not count
When I think Ole-E I think homeless... sometimes I like being homeless. Drink a sixer of these in the 24oz can and forget your troubles. Jfishback13 (273) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2002
I had to re-rate this beer. Sitting with one in my hand, I feel almost like God. Yup... so what if some of the area are overrated by me, the overall beer scores a 30.
Original rating: The best of the malt liquor 40’s. My second ever 40 and the one that got me headed towards thicker, stouts and ambers rather than towards Budweiser, which I had been told was the king of beers. There’s nothing as cool looking as a 40 of 8-ball in your hand. It drinks quite well and has a nasty little kick to it. Many people knock malt liquor, but I’d take it over mainstream, watered down swill anyday.

Just a really great malt liquour. Nice price, doesnt' beat Colt 45 but comes awful close. Hold this one by your side during those tough nights. ratecheapbeers (1) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2017 does not count
Aroma - Sweet and somewhat over powering, some what of a fruity or expired fruit smell.
Appearance - Good looking bottle. Sold in the big 40 Oz bottles because bulk is always cheaper.
Taste - I drink this stuff warm as I do most beer. I find it honestly smoother and more flavourful that way. It has a clean, crisp taste and a smooth finish. Many will find the first 4 or 5 drinks will be a struggle, but after that it goes down nicely.
Palate - Somewhat of a fruity, sugary taste while still keeping true to it’s golden colour.
Overall - This always has been, and always will be my go to when i have enough money for it. It’s a treat that you splurge on when pay day comes around. Great beer, only downside is the aroma. FORTY DOGG (22) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2002
This is truly ghetto Malt Liquor at its pinicle, there are better and stronger 40s out there, but The 8 Ball still remains a staple of the Bitch-Slappin Crew, I’ve went a few rounds with O’l E, but because of the low alchol content, I’ve always come out on top, Though not a ass-kicking 40 by its ’fuck-you-up’ ability, Easy E’s favorite brew still gets ’yo breath stinkin’, it also looks sooo good in a Brown Paper bag, plus the fact that it it’s still cheap dosen’t hurt. If your going out to the club, perhaps a drive-by, or somthing of that sort, where getting blitzed isn’t a great idea, drink some 8 Ball, but pour a little on the ground for EASY first.
