Someone bought me this as a joke, so here goes nothing...

OE is corn syrup yellow with a soapy head that vanishes in an instant. Corn, alcohol and crackers pretty much sums this stuff up. The mouthfeel is light and plywood dry. OE finishes with lingering cooked veggies and rubbing alcohol.

Wow. This stuff is bad. Enough said.

I bought this beer as sort of a Ha Ha nostalgia beer. My gods what have I done to myself? I was going to serve this beer in the proper glass ware. That would mean drinking the beer from the bottle wrapped in a paper bag. By force of habit I poured the beer into a pint glass. The beer was served very cold! Oh well its time to get the Nate Ball rolling!

Appearance: If this beer has any highmarks it would be appearance. The beer pours a very fizzy pale yellow coloration. (This looks like something I emptied out of a catheter this morning.) The head was a short lived foamy white coloration.

Smell: The beer has a vaguely corny mineral / metallic smell.

Taste: The beer has lots of corny maltyness. The maltyness is ruined by the mineral flavors.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: The beer has a very thin / anorexic body. The carbonation is stinging at times. The beer should be consumed fast and not allowed to warm up. When the beer hits warmer temps it is simply undrinkable.

The beer is what it is. This beer is a 7.5% alcohol delivery system. At ninety nine cents a double duece this is acceptable. Man this was a bad idea and it will be awhile before I buy another beer from the good old days.

Ahh Old E .Another malt liquor review due to a sever lack of funds, from a 40oz. bottle into the Ol' Lady's Monteith's mug she gaffled from the Welsh Dragon in Wellington.

A-Clear urine yellow (I leave darker liquid in the toilet after a steady 3 day diet of water), and I mean CLEAR, I could read the pages of a book through this if not for the distortion of the glass mug. did have a two finger(soap sud colored) head when first poured, and dissolved slowly to a film, and even left some lace behind.

N-SUPRIZE!!! corn and light malts. some other adjunct funk in there too.

T- Almost isn't any. little bit of corn, and a bit soapy on the finish, and no I didn't pull the mug out of some fresh dish-water right before I poured this, it's the taste of the beer.

M-light and crisp, like uncle jemima likes it. less appealing than usual for the style.

D-Normally the saving grace of the malt liquor, however this one is not a good drink. yes it can be chugged, but to sip on it is painful, and ability to put it down quickly isn't all there is to drinkability. Overall a pretty lousy example of the style, could be worse though. could be hurricane.
