It gets a bonus point for the novelty factor. I am a white dude from Australia and I felt like I was in NWA while drinking this. #straightouttastraya

This brew is really nothing to write home about, the taste is alright. When I was younger this is all we used to drink. Its funny looking back on this brew now after exploring way better beers.

Olde English is sort of the classic malt liquor. It has numerous movie, rap, music and other cultural references, and it isn't hard to see why. if you drink the stuff, it certainly is memorable. I don't know if there is methyl alcohol in here but the buzz is kind of intense and the people who say that they drink four or five of these a night are probably lying, and either way are people to steer clear of. It's alcohol in a pinch, just like aI said with the better Steel reserve. Treat with caution.

Started out drinking this prior to being of age, drank a decent amount of it actually. I once dropped a full forty on my garage floor and the smell was lethal. Haven't touched the stuff since.

This was never a first choice when we were scoring beer from an adult. The one time we did get this, was due to the wino who pimped for us. It was nasty, but it got the job done.

Nasty bottom of the barrel higher alcohol content beer. Very harsh after taste and very malty taste. Had this in my very early (under aged drinking) days, and haven't had it since. This is truly not worth any amount of $.

Another classic American Malt Liquor. Corn and malt sweetness, slight bitterness in the finish. Nothing fancy, just an easy drinker.

Pours piss yellow and quite sweet. One bottle of this stuff is enough to mess you up.

The original Ghetto Juice! The ONLY (beer)? That I've ever poured down the sink after two tastes. Repulsive.

Some people like it but I think it is God awful. Who knows what is all in it and it tastes like play-doh. Count me out. There's a lot of other better cheap crap out there.

It's mouth-friendly, and the wide bottle is easy to hang onto when everything else is slipping.
