Im definitely going to rate this higher than others because I love malt liquor. The one Im rating was a 40 I bought from the Huron Church location in Windsor. Ive probably drank 200-300 of these in my life - anytime Im drinking a 40 in Canada pretty much. The only thing I can complain about is the aroma - which is offensive. Thats probably why Ive never developed a habit of wafting my beer and Im doing it on purpose now for my ratings here. Anyway, this stuff is delicious cold and you better drink it before it gets warm or youre in trouble - thats the problem most soft people have. Also, this is the OE available in Ontario because the OE in Ontario is 7.9% and not 6.1 or whatever the other beer on here is - that must be the American version.

DietPepsican (1588) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2010
This one was a beast. I didnt pour it into a glass, straight from the 40. Aroma of cereal and alcohol. Flavor was pretty much booze and corn with some light grainy notes. Finishes pretty "hot, maybe some age will tame this one a bit."

Clear dark gold, foamy white head fades. Aroma of fruit and eggs. Taste is pretty bad. Watery, good really cold.

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Pours a nice golden color with a semi loose big white head that leaves some lace. The aroma is vegetal and corny with whiffs of alcohol, but maybe not as much alcohol as one might expect. Its got a mild cereal plant on fire thing happening per MilkmanDan. Oh my this is a lot of sweet breakfast cereal with a bit of corniness and some defined alcohol. There is some almost banana and artificial fruitiness. While the alcohol is clearly detectable I wouldnt have guessed this beer at an 8%, so its fairly concealed.

Review #1000.......

STEP ONE: Smash the middle of the bottle with a ball peen hammer and then emptied both ends directly into a paper bag like an egg.
STEP TWO: Enjoy.
STEP FOUR: Get into knife fight

Ive had worse swill so there is some comfort to be found inside the bottle. Since this is a special review I went with the classy glass bottle. Indeed there was a swill tasting happening and OE came in second. Yes, we found 3 worse ones. Pee yellow and lots o bright white foam. The rank aroma wasnt as bad as I assumed it would be even after leaving this on the counter for half an hour. Savoury clouds of corn, crap-o malts, unearthy fruity sweetness and the souls of the toothless. I did not hesitate to take a big gulp as I did with the other swill and I wasnt disappointed! It is crap! Whew. Choke backable at gun point or at threat of a maniacal street priests diabolical rants. Corn, sweet something and a fist full of almost awfulness sum this up. Damn, I gotta say that I could down a full bottle of this if that is where I was in life. Thick with carbonation that is only similar to guzzling small rocks. The headache from drinking 5L of insane swill between 3 people in an hour was epic beyond belief. High quality low quality.

Luckily, this sample, poured from a 40 oz. clear glass bottle was neither skunked or spoiled. Olde English High Gravity 800 has a very thick, white head, a deep, golden appearance, and a rather high carbonation level. Aroma is pungent, corny, and even bready. The taste is rich, spicy, and fruity, but not overly sweet or alcoholic. Mouth-feel is crisp and medium. OE HG 800 is smooth and refreshing; one of the better malt liquors on the market. Unfortunately, it has a limited distribution (not available in Louisiana). I liked it and would recommend it. RJT
