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.

Say it aint so. How could you phase out OE? This stuff isnt bad and puts the whoop on, but the bottle loses its charm and the flavor is a downgrade at the cost of more alcohol.

Well, times can be tough. Some of us need to try every swill in the world in order to drink something and have a chance to rate something when we cant afford the good stuff. This is foul and strong. Nuff said.

Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Surprisingly inoffensive.

Good for a laugh, not for a good drink. Highly syruppy and malt alcohol ruin it. who knows whats in this thing. funny red gold color.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 It looks, smells and tastes like some kind of fuel, but the high percentage makes it all good. Olde English tastes much better though, and i could only find this in a 22 ounce size.

I had one goal when I bought this beer. I wanted to forget about my son Squeeks pornography collection. And by God, this did it. High Gravity lived up to its name by pulling me to the floor in a matter of minutes. Three Cheers for OE-HG!!!! Please visit www.public.iastate.edu/~jgdyoung

Im not sure why I bought this. Maybe I was going through some phase were I wanted my nut hair to fall out, or maybe I was just feeling like getting my ass kicked. Either way, I think Id rather go downtown and pay a bum to shove this 40oz bottle up my ass than to drink any more of it. This may be a good practical joke beer, or it might just be like brushing your teeth with wasabe. If its a high alchohol content you want, I beg of you, just go buy some nice barley wine and keep your stomache lining.
