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.

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. beerMe23 (14) - bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Well not really being a high gravity fan I was quite surprised with the taste, but for the alcohol content you cannot do much better, at least for the money PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2003
I have defintely had worse Malt Liquors. Has a sweet not unappealing aroma. Brief soapy white head - a tad bit of lacing. Appearance is very dark golden to light orange - a bit of bubble action going on. Alcohol is hidden very well - I expected something akin to rubbing alcohol when I bought it. A bit of a sweet malty flavor without an aftertaste - what more can you ask from a cheap malt liquor and a quick buzz. I'll never buy again - but I left impressed!

It's not too bad. Good alcohol content. It seems a little thick but after one you can drink it all night.

OK. So I had a cheap night of PBR and this, whatever it is. At first smell it doesn't seem like it is going to be that bad, then holy shit you take a swig and the malts taste like they were shat out and sprinkle with honey. It took all of my energy to finish this one and have my drunken night. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2003
(Bottle) Another case of quantity not quality; though this beer isn't 'piss poor' it is pretty bad. The fact they package it in a clear 1.18 L bottle scared me off the draw. Pours a medium white head and golden body... depending how long you pour for. The bottle is naturally designed to pour as much head as needed to spill over - small mouth, straight sided wall, 1.18 litres of fluid passing through a small mouth. Skunk aroma with slight malt. Tastes of poorly brewed beer. Finish, well, it couldn't come quick enough! Avoid. This should be found in a can not a bottle. yopparai (22) - Fergus Falls, Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2003
to me, not at good as the 211, but the OE high gravity will get the job done. the taste is another aquired one as the 8 Ball has a very distinct taste, but if you like it...you like it. for the price and the alcohol percentage...damn how can you pass this us. all you need is 5 bucks and you can crack two 211's or 2 OE's and you're money. overall this is a bomb ass brew. and really...if you are gonna taste test a freakin 40, shiet come on now. its a damn forty...grab a paper bag, crack the top and dont forget to finish the ass.
